“Nice inn with extraordinary hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

As with many things, it's the intangibles that matter most, and David and George at the Deer Brook Inn make this inn extraordinary. Those who frequent bed and breakfasts do so for the small details, the nuances that set such experiences apart from the cold or generic hotels and motels frequented by many; David and George provide these nuances in abundance. From helping us set up our dream weekend with suggestions for dinner and kayaking - both of which were impeccable recommendations and thus experiences in themselves - to the culinary masterpieces presented as breakfasts and the friendly, warm banter during our stay, we could not possibly have asked for more gracious, kind, and friendly hosts. David and George made our first trip to Woodstock one such that we have decided to make this an annual excursion.

Deer Brook Inn was referred to us by a fellow Torontonian and we can't thank her enough. George and David made our two night stay memorable. We loved our room with the skylight and we noted that the room was meticulously maintained. The breakfasts were delicious and we were excited after the first breakfast to see what would be served the next morning. We ate breakfast outside on the back patio surrounded by greenery; this was very peaceful. George and David were very helpful in making suggestions for activities and for purchasing gifts for folks back home. Enjoy your stay at Deer Brook Inn!

George and David are so wonderful. They tell great stories, know exactly where to send you for dinner, and always leave a bowl of chocolate by the door! In just two days they sent us horseback riding, hiking, cheese tasting, tree sapping, calf-snuggling, ice cream tasting, and even delicious (no, really) organic-food dining! This place is exactly what a B&B should be. It was so welcoming to come home at night to the smell of baking break or coffee cake. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and the orange/cranberry juice was, too! The room was cheerful and comfortable, and the whole house just has an atmosphere of warmth and care. There is no better place to stay.

Yes, the place is a home away from home and the hosts as friendly and helpful as you could wish for and the bedrooms a real treat and clean, this charming spot all on its own, just outside Woodstock blew me away with its breakfasts. I only stayed 2 nights, but after breakfast #1, I went to bed anticipating breakfast #2. Can you imagine poached pear followed by an egg vegetable frittata with local sausage and corn bread served with attention fit for a "good morning". Go!

Room Tip: rooms on the back avoid traffic noise but it bothered me not.

While looking for a place to stay in Woodstock on vacation, we saw all the favorable reviews for the Deer Brook Inn and decided to make a booking. Everything you will read in the other reviews was true for us as well - George and David were warmly hospitable, and always ready with a recommendation or other assistance. The rooms are all nicely furnished and the grounds are beautiful (try to have breakfast on the outdoor patio if the weather permits). We knew that the inn was 5 miles out of town and hence this did not bother us. The common area was very nice and it was enjoyable to socialize with the hosts and other guests as little or as much as we wanted.The inclusive breakfasts were good (particularly the orange-cran juice and the cornbread), although not the best ones on this trip. It is also true that the inn is right on a busy road, so if this noise might bother you then you might want to bring ear plugs. The room also definitely gets very light at dawn, so you might want to bring an eye shade if you are a light sleeper. The shower worked well, and the rubber duckies in the tub were a nice touch. The room did not have its own TV, so just be aware of that ahead of time. The only problem that we had was that the air conditioner in our room only worked well on high, so it was either too hot or too cold (we were there when it was exceptionally warm and humid for Vermont). Overall, the hospitability of the hosts makes this place shine, and we will return again the next time that we are in the area

Room Tip: When booking, if you are a light sleeper ask for a room towards the back of the house

This was our second, week-long stay at the Deer Brook Inn. When we were planning our summer trip we kept referring back to our stay last year as the standard we wanted to meet. So, we decided to return. David and George are the best hosts ever. They are always there with ideas of lovely ways to spend precious vacation time. If you go to them with something you want to do, they see that it happens. Their knowledgeable and intelligent conversation always add to our enjoyment. We feel welcomed like old friends.

What else can you say? It was everything we could hope for in a B&B. From the minute we walked in the door, George and David were gracious hosts who did everything they could to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. And their stories about some of the renovations were just fascinating. Can you believe that someone removed every single painted floorboard, numbered them, then flipped them over and replaced them, to preserve the integrity of the inn? The rooms are nicely updated yet maintain some historic charm. There is a beautiful outdoor patio for breakfasts al fresco when the weather is nice. And beautiful flowers add a delightful touch.

Room Tip: If you are two couples, be sure to get one suite with a sitting area so you have room to enjoy some...
