Stayed here for four days,, essentially to allow our granddaughter High Peaks hiking opportunities. A beautifully restored Victorian house with two large second-floor bedrooms plus a smaller one which our granddaughter occupied. We shared a bathroom with her, which was also very large an airy. Kristen used to deal antiques, so the parlours and other rooms are full of Victorian... More

Kristen and Jim are great hosts. They have a beautiful B&B. Exactly what you want on a cool New England night. The decor is warm and inviting and the breakfast is simply the best. I will recommend this B&B to friends and family. Perfect place to stay after a hike in the Adirondacks.

My husband and I stayed at the Woodrfuff House while in town for our Son's wedding in Lake Placid. Due to the Ironman Triathalon in lake Placid we were not able to get accomodations there. Well, so glad we didn't! We had a wonderful stay and Jim and Kristen made us feel like we were right at home with wonderful... More

We recently stayed two nights at the Woodruff House in Elizabethtown N. Y. The house is tastefully decorated with lots of antiques. Our room was very nice and had a private bath. The breakfasts were great, with freshly baked goods, melon with prosciutto,eggs Benedict,muffins, omelets, etc. Not your usual B & B fare. Delicious! All that plus a couple of... More

My family and I stayed at the inn as a base for skiing and winter hiking in the Adirondacks in February. Don't give a second thought to the effects of hurricane Irene on the region, or the fact that Elizabethtown is a few minutes further afield than Keene or Lake Placid for some: this is a great inn and well...

We had a wonderful weekend stay at The Woodruff House. Our hosts were wonderful. Even though we arrived very late at night, Jim greeted us at the door. We felt very comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed the fabulous breakfast. Our only suggestion is that locks be installed in every bedroom.

This was our 7 or 9th stay at the Woodruff House - we use it as a home base when dropping our son off/picking him up at nearby Camp Dudley. Woodruff House is adorable, with every room a bit different than the other. Kristin keeps the house immaculate and her breakfasts are wonderful!! One of these days we'll plan better,... More

The Woodruff House is a very pleasant place to stay! Each detail has been thought out and incorporated into the B&B theme perfectly. The cleanliness deserves the highest rating available! Although we stayed only one evening, this is a place to come and relax for several! A good book, while relaxing on the porch, is all it would take! Kristien... More

A stunning building, large rooms, wonderful interiour decoration, a huge breakfast. We planned to be there for two days and stayed for a week. A cristal-clear river borders the property. Large DVD collection for rainy days. Kristen and Jim are wonderful hosts, not only for giving us some good hints on where to go. We will certainly return.

Casual elegance in a neat old home shared with three fat, friendly cats on the Boquet River. Wi-Fi, gourmet country breakfast and beverages 'round the campfire' are included. Why not live it up a little? And plan to stay awhile; if you're like our other guests, once you're here you won't want to leave! ... more   less
