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

We spent 2 wonderful nights at the DeForest House which exceeded all expectations. A charming and exquisitely decorated room and an impressive livingroom where the most delicious breakfast was served. Catherine and John were the perfect hosts, warm and welcoming with a tons of interesting facts on and tips for exploring Woodstock. We felt like we were visiting old friends... More

Just returned from a wonderful and relaxing long weekend at the DeForest House. Catherine and John are delightful and welcoming - and the whole experience is like visiting (enjoyable) relatives! Their home is beautiful and clean as can be (and I'm crazy about immaculate accommodations!) - the breakfast is superb - the coffee outstanding and the setting is just what... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at DeForest House and wish we could have stayed longer. Our room (the Moroccan Room, which is one of two guest rooms) was spotless, beautifully decorated, and had everything one could need--plus a fabulous walk-in closet. If you like bright colors, this is the room for you. The whole house is decorated... More

We had a wonderful experience here! My girlfriend and I wanted to get away for a few days and thought Woodstock would be cool place to check out. The DeForest House was the first place I called and I immediately knew this is where we would stay. A lovely woman named Catherine answered the phone. She was extremely kind and... More

A quick drive to the Overlook Mountain and Echo Lake trail and a Buddhist temple up on the mountain. Close to town yet feels like a retreat. The house is nicely decorated, the rooms are impeccable (and I am a neat freak). The hosts are perfect, extremely accommodating. They are here when you want them and invisible when you don't....

This was my first stay at a B & B and I don't think I can go anywhere else because no other B & B can surpass this. The hosts were amazing. We spent much time just talking to them (because we wanted to. We had privacy if we wanted it, but loved talking to them.) They are cultured and... More

.... there was a majestic place tucked away just outside of Woodstock village on Glasco Turnpike. Within its walls lies a place of creativity and a crafted eye for all things beautiful. Within its walls lives John and Catherine, two special people, who open their home to others as guests. For whatever length of stay people choose, you become immersed... More
