Terrific B&B with great Innkeepers deep in the Green Mountains!

4.6 on March 09, 2018

Had a great stay at Jackson House Inn, Woodstock, VT. Kathy and Rick are the best Innkeepers. Fabulous breakfast creations every morning in a great Green Mountain setting. Could not be improved. We loved the fireplaces, antiques, cozy bar, and hot coffee every morning early right outside the door. Highly recommended!

Innkeeper Response
We thank you so very much for such kind words. The setting is one we love to share with guests along with the wonderful food products of the area. Warm and cozy are the goals at this time of year - glad you enjoyed! Hope to see you again in the future.

John & Tricia

The owners Kathy and Rick were extremely helpful and informative. The Inn was not crowded when we arrived so we were immediately upgraded to a larger room with a sitting area and a fireplace. The highlight of each day was the very creative and tasty breakfast consisting of locally sourced fresh ingredients gathered the previous day by Rick. Rick is also the cook (he prefers cook to chef) and each breakfast is served with an enthusiastic and heartfelt presentation of the food. A great place…we can’t wait to go back!

Innkeeper Response
We truly appreciate your taking the time to share your Jackson House Inn experience with others. It was our pleasure to offer you a larger space with warmth and a view since winter continues to make its mark. Rick particularly thanks you for the kind words about your breakfast experience. We can't wait to see you again!

Most amazing bed breakfast

5 on February 07, 2018

The Jackson House Inn is by far the best bed and breakfast we've ever visited. Imagine a renovated colonial mansion with a small town country feel. Upon stepping into the house, you are greeted by impeccable cleanliness and thoughtful styling.Kathy will greet you and make you comfortable immediately. The rooms all have their own charm. We stayed at the Nicholas which was very spacious. It had it's own fireplace, balcony, TV (not that we watched), and the fluffiest most comfortable bed and sheets you'll ever experience. Now, onto breakfast. Where to begin.....Rick prepares a two course feast better than most 5 star hotels and $$$$ restaurants. He uses all ingredients from local farms and adds his own twists. Every dish was impeccably prepared with complex flavors building on each other. You will not find a better breakfast on this coast. Last but not least, we forgot our jackets in the closet. We emailed Kathy about them and she promptly mailed them to us via USPS priority mail. This highlights how friendly and special Kathy and Rick are as people. I will certainly be back in the future.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your very kind words. It was our pleasure to have both of you with us. We're happy you found warmth, comfort, service and, very importantly, delicious breakfast to begin your days. Also, we were happy to have found and returned your jackets since winter seems to be continuing to make its statement this year. We look forward to seeing you again.

An Inn for All Seasons

5 on May 17, 2017

We had an amazing stay at The Jackson House Inn in March during a below-freezing cold-snap. It was the facilities, gourmet breakfasts, and gentile hosting that warmed us though a wonderful long weekend. Proprietors Rick and Kathy, along with their staff, certainly deliver what the photographs and descriptions promise. We came to ski, hike, and snowshoe, but were very tempted to hang out in the comfortable environment that Rick and Kathy have created. To start each day, we had our palette and appetite entertained with Rick’s exquisite gourmet breakfast presentation. Every detail of the private rooms, sitting rooms, and dining room has been created to function and sooth the senses with a combination of modern convenience and traditional New England ambiance. One cannot overemphasize the benefits and welcome feeling of having such amiable hosts at hand for advice and recommendations about Woodstock and the surrounding region. They have perfected the artful way of being present as guests may need, while ensuring the utmost of privacy. As spring turns to summer, we look forward to our next stay, as we were impressed that Jackson House is obviously an inn for all seasons.


Idyllic Vermont Experience

The Jackson House Inn is the quintessential B&B experience. We had an idyllic Vermont stay with proprietors Rick and Kathy, and their staff, who certainly deliver what the photographs and descriptions promise.

To start each day, we had our palette and appetite entertained with Rick’s exquisite gourmet breakfast presentation.

Bring your hopes for rejuvenation, a base for engaging activities, and healthful relaxation to this welcoming retreat and you will be amply rewarded.


Outstanding B&B

5 on March 07, 2017

We've been to The Jackson House 3 times and we always have a wonderful stay. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfasts are to die for. Kathy and Rick are fantastic. They felt like old friends from the first visit. We can't wait to visit again!


Just...Wow!

5 on March 28, 2015

Without a doubt the most amazing place Ive ever stayed in Vermont. I was given the gift of staying here for my birthday, and I will never forget it. There is a reason why it was named Yankee Magazine's Best of New England Editors' Choice - Best Intimate Retreat. Kathy greeted us late in the day after a long afternoon on the hills and guided us to our room where my mouth...literally...dropped to the floor. Everything was immaculate. From the fireplace and hot tub to the 4 poster bed and amazingly spacious shower, this is one place I hope to get back to asap! Plus, the farm to table breakfasts were amazingly creative and delicious to say the least. Thank you Rick. I hesitate in highly recommending this place only because there will now be a chance if and when I get back here, it will all be booked. (Notice I didn't share what room we had just in case..hehehe) Even though this was given to me as a romantic birthday getaway, I optioned "Outstanding Value" only because when I see the price that I would have paid...it would definitely be worth it. Thank you Jackson House Inn for an amazingly wonderful getaway.


One word, excellent

5 on August 16, 2014

We stayed for one night at the Inn and we just loved it. We will definitely come back. Confortable, clean, delicious breakfast prepared with local fresh products et a service above expected, we highly recommand it.


Elegant Comfort

5 on June 01, 2014

Warm hospitality, comfortably elegant accommodations, mouth watering breakfasts, beautiful grounds, and interesting things to do in the area have brought me back to the Jackson House Inn once again. The amount of tender loving care that Kathy and Rick put into their inn is obvious. As an ever returning guest, I am amazed each time by newly decorated guest rooms, updated bathrooms, ever changing landscaping, and Rick's creativity in the kitchen. Kathy is the most gracious hostess while seeing to the comfort of each guest. She is quite knowledgeable about the area and thoughtfully makes suggestions for things to do or places to dine. Using Kathy's ideas, I have enjoyed Woodstock and the surrounding area so much that I continue to return. I thought the Jackson House Inn was close to the perfect the first time I visited. Kathy and Rick are deeply interested in creating an ever evolving guest experience - the perfect experience!

About the innkeepers

Regular visits to many inns throughout the country and trips to Central Vermont, where both of our children were longtime campers at Camp Billings on Lake Fairlee, led us to a new adventure in Woodstock. Our true passions for gardening, history and food laid the foundation for our chapter in the history of The Jackson House Inn. It is a true joy to cross paths with so many people from all corners of the nation and the globe!
