You cannot beat the Shire for the price and quality of the accommodations. It is the best price in Woodstock, but don't let that fool you. The quality is excellent also. Ask for a room with a view of the river, You also get your own little balcony. Great view. Also for those of you familiar with John Wesley's Puritan... More

Very nice unpretentious motel, with a great location in two ways: One, it's right on the beautiful little Ottauquechee River, so in almost all cases your window will look out on a beautiful pastoral scene with babbling brook. Two, it's a short walk to downtown and lots of good restaurants, shopping etc. It's a two-story motel (plus three rooms on... More

We were very pleased with the Shire Riverview . The room was very spacious, clean, and had a beautiful view of the river. Walking distance to the downtown area with shops & restaurants. Several interesting sights were an easy drive. We especially enjoyed the Marsh, Billings, and Rockefeller Farm.

We stopped there off the road by happenstance, very happy we did. The room was beautiful with a 4 poster bed very clean and views of the river. There is a balcony with a view of the river as well very peaceful listening the sounds of the water and birds. The owners Dorothy and Vince were very nice people as... More

A bit spendy but a beautiful location overlooking the river in a classic new england village - Woodstock, Vt.. Charming room, flower beds, lawn down to the river in back. You will love it. Not much else to say. They don't offer anything else - just a nice room ina great spot. When you get there you will understand. You... More

Great place to stay with beautiful views over a river. The rooms are big (if a little dated) and the balcony with chairs and tables is very nice to sit with a glass of wine and soak up the view. Woodstock and the surrounding area is gorgeous. We found a great creak to swim in. Only down side to the... More

When I pulled up to the Shire, I have to admit that despite all the great reviews, I was feeling a little concerned. From the outside, it looks like your typical motel. However, the room was really nice, spacious, well lit (important because I like to read in the evening) very clean, and relatively quiet. The bed was very comfortable.... More

Shire Riverview is located on the river in Woodstock. It is about 3 blocks from all of downtown Woodstock. It is across the street from a supermarket. So you have a lovely view and walking convenience. The inn has free Wi-Fi as well. Shire does not have a breakfast so take that into account when pricing rooms. I would suggest... More

We came to Woodstock without a reservation, which I hate to do. After looking at a B&B, and pausing outside the glamorous Woodstock Inn, I realized that comfort ruled over quaint. At the Shire, we found both. We really wanted two beds after a long adventure with family, and we got that and more. Comfortable beds, charming decor and a... More

Stayed 2 nights with my sister and it was very nice. We thought it was very clean, the beds were comfy, the shower pressure was great. They had coffee/tea out every morning. Little fridge in the room. It is on a noisy street, but it didn't bother us at all. Loved sitting on the porch, having a drink and watching... More
