Summer boasts an in-ground pool and Central Air, with great places to hike, bike and swim surrounded by nature. With Springtime there are beekeeping activities and, of course, in the Fall, there is stunning foliage to see. In winter, enjoy hot cider and soup while you play games by the fireside. Save money on your stay with our seasonal special packages and Frequent Stay Program. Always enjoy our famous Bottomless Cookie Jar! We look forward to welcoming you at Golden Stage Inn, where we bring "Bed and Breakfast" to a whole new level. Your hosts, Michael and Julie Wood.

We felt so much at home so far from home. We recommend this overall outstanding B&B to everyone who likes to enjoy life at its best. Every word of the homepage is true and no exaggeration. Much love to be felt!

The Golden Stage Inn was perfect for our ski weekend and Mike and Julie were perfect hosts. The rooms were clean, decorated beautifully and spacious. The inn offered plenty of room to sit and relax if you wanted to - and the food was exceptional - especially Mike's chocolate cake. Mike and Julie were helpful with dinner ideas balanced being there for you if you needed anything with giving you space and privacy. Will definitely go back again.
Thank you! Balancing your privacy with our hospitality is important to us. And of course, so is Michael's chocolate cake. Glad it was all well received! We hope to welcome you again -- if not for hiking this summer, then skiing next winter!

I cannot tell you how much my family enjoyed our stay at the Golden Stage Inn B&B. We got lucky when we called last minute because someone else had just canceled. Julie and Mike were the perfect B&B hosts. The house was beautiful and spotless. The daily cookies, hot cider, and of course breakfast were all outstanding. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE GOLDEN STAGE INN BED AND BREAKFAST.

I usually get homesick after a few days into the vacation. This is the FIRST time that I did not, because I felt so overwhelmingly at home at the Inn. Now I'm back at home, and I am HOMESICK FOR THE GOLDEN STAGE INN!!!

We had a really great stay in beautiful surroundings. Our hosts were extremely friendly and very helpful and the breakfasts were delicious. We would highly recommend this bed and breakfast.
Named for the author and actress Cornelia Otis Skinner, a former resident of this home, the room captures the rural character of Cornelia's country home of the late 1800's, yet boasts a small gas fireplace and a fully renovated (July 2014) bathroom. The new bathroom offers a spacious shower, nearly twice the size of what our returning guests remember. The room decor was not altered much during the renovation; we simply added the fireplace and en-suite vessel sink, maintaining the original wide pine floor and the fun farm-themed wallpaper with its warm tones of earthy red and and brown.
Fully renovated as of July 2014, this room offers a Queen Sized bed with luxury mattress, a gas fireplace, a small sitting area, and a flat screened TV. Step up two stairs and enjoy the completely updated bathroom with a heated tile floor, a beautiful (one person) jetted tub, and an antique vanity with vessel sink. The pictures on our website do not yet reflect the room renovations. If you'd like to see some images before booking, contact us and we?ll email some snapshots.
Enjoy our immaculate Okemo inn. Beds can be arranged as two twins or one luxurious king. Facing south, this sun-filled room also has an antique vanity and pillowed chair for relaxing. Named for Reverend Warren Skinner, a Universalist preacher of the mid-1800's and the patriarch of this home for many years. He and his family are buried in the cemetery across the way. This room has a private bath (with stall shower).
In order to have the bed configured the way you would like before your arrival, on the final reservation page please note your preference of two twins or one king bed for your stay.
Tasteful wallpaper and shades of burgundy make this room a frequent favorite of many guests. Its cherry finish sleigh bed cradles a new extra deep (and extra high) luxury mattress. The room is named for Reverend Warren Skinner's eldest son, who reportedly took several years to return when sent on a simple errand to buy some sugar. This room has a private bath with a stall shower.
Two private bedrooms share one bathroom, making this suite ideal for a family of four or two couples looking to save a few dollars. Both bedrooms have small flat-screened TV/DVD players and closets with terrycloth robes. The private bathroom is fully updated, with a luxury tiled shower and a copper vessel sink resting upon an antique oak vanity.
Room 1: Queen-size bed with a gas fired "woodstove."
Room 2: Two twins or one king.
In order to have the bed in Room 2 configured the way you would like before your arrival, on the final reservation page please note your preference of two twins or one king bed for your stay.
Ideal for families, these two adjoining bedrooms share one fully updated bathroom. One room has two twin beds and a small pull-out couch (appropriate for one child); the second bedroom has a queen bed. Both rooms have a small flat screened TV/DVDs and a closet with terrycloth robes. The bathroom is up two stairs and has a spacious tiled shower and a beautiful handmade porcelain vessel sink resting upon an antique wooden vanity.
Rate is based on a maximum of four people. Additional $25 per night for a fifth person. Please note: There is a door between the rooms, but those staying in the room with the twin beds must walk through the other room to get to the bathroom.
Maya's Room is on the first floor and is wheelchair accessible. It has a queen bed, dresser, armchair, and small TV. Its private bath has a large shower (no tub). The room has private access to the shared front porch. This room is named for Maya Angelou and honors the inn's reported history as a stop on the Underground Railroad.
The antique oak full sized bed has a feather-topped mattress and a half-wall partition separates the bedroom from the private bath (with stall shower). Slender French doors open to a tiny but quaint private porch. In the original part of the building (c.1788) in the front of the house, the Old Stage Room recalls the inn's earliest history as a stagecoach stop.
