Staying with Catherine and John is like a little slice of Paris and southern France. Sumptuous breakfasts and wonderful coffee served in garden like atmosphere makes even grey days seem bright. The bedroom dotted with antiques and charm boasts a very comfortable bed. The en suite bath has all the necessary toiletries. Hope to use the pool today. All in... More

Lovely setting, lovely house. Exceptional hosts. Exceptional breakfast. John and Catherine were wonderful hosts - friendly, engaging, and full of interesting and useful information on the area. The room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. The house is older and has a ton of character. We would go back in a heartbeat. Highly recommend.

Very nice place to stay. Lovely surroundings. Great hosts. Very comfy, quiet and clean. The breakfast was also really excellent. Easy walk into Woodstock but also recommend the walk up to the viewpoint above the town which has a fantastic panoramic view over the Hudson Valley.

My wife and I have stayed in many B&Bs, but not one has given us greater pleasure than our two days with Catherine and John, the perfect hosts. DeForest House and its surroundings are lovely, suffused with Catherine's sense of design and color reflecting the fascinating lives she and John have lived and topped off by excellent breakfasts and lively...

We recently stayed at the DeForest house and had a truly spectacular time! The house is two-minute drive to town (if that), although the walk is also beautiful and only 20-minutes. It feels secluded when you pull up the drive way and you immediately will feel relaxed once you arrive on the property. Cathrine and John, the innkeepers, were instrumental... More

We headed up to Woodstock to explore the town and culture. Could have spent all our time exploring the historical artifacts of the DeForest House and it's beautiful property. Enjoyed the company and conversing with John and Catherine, the innkeepers. Great people, elegant atmosphere, amazing breakfast spread... We will be back!

The DeForest House is a wonderful place to stay. Catherine and John are great hosts, their home is lovely and welcoming, and the breakfast is awesome! We stayed in August 2013 and again in November 2013. Both times we were traveling with another couple and took in dinner and a show at the Bearsville Theater, which is a short distance... More

While visiting Woodstock last month, I was recommended the DeForest House. What a great choice! John and Catherine were lovely hosts who welcomed me into their exquisitely decorated home which combines French decor with local Woodstock art history. I stayed in the Moroccan room with its warm colors and its own outside patio - which I didn't use given the... More

I was my 2nd visit. This time took my wife, I promised them I would, and we just had a wonderful stay with Catherine and John. Welcome was great and we had a perfect stay. Sure we will find an excuse to return, although it is a long way from Woodstock UK where we live.

I must apologize as, my husband and I stayed at Deforest House with along with my parents back in June, but I'm just now writing the review. We had a lovely stay with Catherine and John and they were kind enough to accommodate a one-night stay even during such a busy time of the year. The rooms and the entire... More
