We've stayed here several times in recent years, and always enjoy it. The rooms are spacious and clean, nicely decorated, and comfortable. It's in the town of Woodstock, which is convenient, and some rooms have a nice river view. Our only problem this visit was we booked a King bed and were put in a Queen room by mistake. It... More

My 82 yr. old mother and my sister and I stayed one night here in October on our first trip from Texas to New England, and enjoyed it very much. Our room was plenty large for the 3 of us, and beautifully decorated. It was listed as handicap-accessible, but the ambiance of the room suffered not at all. I loved... More

I first stayed at the Shire more than 20 years ago. It was great then and even better now. It's in a beautiful location with expansive, beautiful scenery from the guest room windows. It's comfortable, clean, affordable and has beautifully appointed, yet simple rooms. Love it.

We booked two rooms earlier this October . The welcome was cordial and our rooms had a wonderful view. We were close to nearby shops, restaurants, scenic walks and drives. Our rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. One room with two double beds was sorely in need of new mattresses but the other room had a newer king sized bed.... More

Spacious rooms with nice views. Very close walk to eateries and shops in Woodstock. Premier river view room looked just like the photos. Not luxurious or recently remodeled, but does the job. Great spot for a family, as lots of room and easy parking.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Riverview on our New England trip to see the fall colors. We are from Colorado and have beautiful aspens but nothing like the color display in Vermont and New Hampshire!! We stayed in the end unit on the first floor with windows on the east and north facing the beautiful river that... More

Stayed here for one night while passing through to see the foliage. The staff was super friendly at check-in and check-out. Our room was very comfortable. They have a second building right next door that is much more like an old Victorian style house. There wasn't really any view to speak of from our room, but for one night I... More

The room was fine. I was expecting a balcony or larger windows with the premium suite, especially because the river is right there! The bathrooms were very outdated outdated. Bedding is also not super comfortable because pillows are cheap.

Always wanted to stay here as we visit Woodstock yearly. This Oct we stayed only one night on our way home and are very glad we did. The room in the guest house was very comfortable. View of the river was great from both bedroom and bathroom. Will definitaly stay there again.

Check-in went well. Room was clean and the bathroom had been somewhat updated, but this is still an older motel (if you stay in the main building). No mention was made of the complimentary coffee, and there is no breakfast served. Most likely because there really is no lobby, just a small office where you check in. After staying in... More
