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.


Outstanding B&B

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

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!


Amazing Place!

I spent a wonderful long weekend at the Jackson House Inn for a getaway with friends. Upon arriving I was greeted by Kathy and immediately felt welcomed. She was a wonderful resource throughout the entire weekend, answering any questions we had and providing a variety of suggestions to places to go and see. Rick is also a gracious host and his breakfasts are AMAZING. Everything is local and you can tell he puts a lot of time and effort into everything he prepares. I have never tasted anything so delicious. The property itself it beautiful! Rick and Kathy made sure to keep the historic nature of the inn while making the inn feel welcoming and homey. The rooms were extremely clean and the beds were very comfortable. Every room has its own bathroom and the products provided were wonderful. The inn is located on a beautiful piece of property and you are able to just wander around an take it all in. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and even sitting one morning by the pond. I would highly recommend the inn and can't wait to visit again. Rick and Kathy went above and beyond to make sure our group had an wonderful weekend. Thank you for such an amazing trip.


Fantastic place

5 on September 16, 2012

My wife and I spent two nights at Jackson House and hated to leave. Large, comfortable rooms with modern baths. Rooms were nicely furnished without going over the top. Rick and Kathy are fantastic and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. And don't miss Rick's breakfasts; they are delicious. I am generally loathed to highly-recommend anything but I have no hesitations about giving that recognition to Jackson House. Terry M


Fantastic B&B

We had a fantastic time at Jackson House Inn. The rooms are luxurious yet cozy and the breakfast is to die for. We've already been back once and had just as wonderful of an experience. We will definitely return!


Wonderfully Lovely!!!

5 on May 11, 2012

Another visit to the Jackson House Inn - a different suite and a new experience -- a chroma therapy bath /massage tub! After researching chromatherapy, I now know the benefits and fun of this new feature at the Jackson House Inn. Kathy and Rick were wonderful hosts who pointed me in interesting directions. Two highlights of this trip included a unique dining experience at a farm to table restaurant/farm and local and not so local musical entertainment at an old Vermont tavern. Of course, Rick's specialty breakfasts are a good reason to get up in the mornings, while Kathy is the most gracious and caring hostess. While the inn is already beautiful, Kathy and Rick continue to enhance their guest accommodations, every return trip reveals something new. The grounds are gorgeous. Sipping wine near the pond after a long day of exploring, is the perfect way to wind. The Inn is spotless and the grounds impeccably groomed. The Jackson House Inn continues to be my favorite get away.


Absolutely amazing!

5 on May 07, 2012

I stayed at The Jackson House Inn back in January and had an amazing time there. Rick and Kathy were so welcoming and warm, they truly made the stay. The meals were delicious and primarily made from locally grown food. I even asked Rick for some recipes because I was so impressed and delighted in the quality of the meals! The rooms were comfortable and quaint. Woodstock is an adorable little town and the friendliness of not only the staff but also the other guests really made our stay. A definite must, we certainly plan on returning!

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 are 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!
