Catherine and John are exceptional hosts and the house and grounds are beautiful. As hosts, they pay attention to the individual guest preferences, as Catherine noting that we like fruit always had plentiful and varied types out each morning and surprised me with more types of yogurt than I knew existed. She made omelets to order for my husband and... More

Seldom do I use the word perfection when it comes to a B&B/hotel review. In the case of DeForest House I wish there was a word that could describe beyond perfection. My wife and I hadn't been to Woodstock in over 15 years and decided to stop through enroute to pick our daughter from camp. I am so happy that... More

My husband and I just drove back from our FOURTH stay with Katherine and John at DeForest House and spent part of the trip raving about their attention to details, both aesthetic and comfort related. Everything about the house is appointed to perfection with what you might call French Country or Rustic Elegance. The breakfast provided is beyond compare for... More

We would like to thank you for such a wonderful stay at your B&B. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with you. The breakfasts were amazing and it was such a treat to be joined by a black bear!! Your attention to detail and commitment to making sure your guests have a truly wonderful stay is extremely refreshing.

My husband and I just returned from a vacation on the East Coast to celebrate our Anniversary. We began our journey spending three nights at De Forest House. We were excited to return to Woodstock, for we have family there, and wonderful memories of this artist colony. I read the reviews, looked at the photos and had a few corresponding... More

Due to a cancellation, we were able to stay at this fantastic B and B over the 4th July weekend. Located in a quite and very scenic part of the town,and surrounded by trees and lush shrubbery,it gives off a most relaxing atmosphere. We stayed in the Victorian room which was furnished with magnificent antiques and a queen size bed.... More

We spent two delightful nights at the De Forest House. John and Catherine Mason are superlative hosts. The room was comfortable, spotless, had everything we needed and more. Catherine's exquisite taste creates a unique and welcoming ambience. Service was excellent more like a hotel than a B&B. We were served an abundant and delicious breakfast each morning, fresh fruit, baked... More

Secluded in the woods outside of Woodstock, the b&b was easy to find, even in the dark. You'll want to arrive early to totally enjoy the grounds, the hosts, and the various historical collections around this unique B & B. Rest up well, as you will be OVERWHELMED with breakfast. Two days later, I am still filled! Fresh, healthy and... More

I had never stayed in a B&B before so it was a great first experience. I wasn't really sure what to expect but Catherine and John were so welcoming and so accommodating. I planned this trip kind of last minute for me and my boyfriend for Memorial Day Weekend but Catherine was able to fit us in for the one... More
