“Friendly small town motel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Deck off the rooms on the river side is very picturesque & relaxing. Complimentary coffee on the upper deck overlooking the river in the morning is great! The motel is very conveniently located and a short walk to the center of town.

Room Tip: River view room is nice!

We were in town for a wedding and enjoyed our stay very much. We are having a wedding at the end of the month so we will book the entire hotel. The location is perfect for all of our guest. Parking is very right in front of the building. Coffee first thing in the morning while listening and looking at the river is so relaxing. The staff was helpful in every way.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Charles Bronson room. Beautiful furniture!

Stayed here many times, great location in Woodstock, you can walk to the stores, restaurants, etc. Lovely upstairs porch with rocking chairs and tables, Great place to watch the world go by while enjoying your coffee. Rooms are decorated with antiques, and there's a view of the river in the back. Friendly, helpful staff. Always enjoy our stay.

Centrally located in Woodstock, we stayed here for a GMHA event--which meant being able to pull in with a horse trailer, unload tack into the room (safety) and easily park truck right in front of room. Rockers on porch, river rushing right outside back window with fields stretching off on opposite bank, this was a quiet, very well appointed good-sized room. Nice sheets, amenities, flex tv, wireless and lighting. Bathroom very clean and well appointed,lots of hot water. Owner Ken was very helpful (we had to change one room as needed two beds) and when we wanted to book a followup stay when they were full, he kindly directed us to a nice alternative. Will definitely make this our primary stay when at GMHA!

On a recent visit to Vermont, my husband, son (2 & 1/2yrs) and I stayed at The Shire Riverview. Wow, wow, wow!! This is definitely Woodstocks best kept secret - 5 star rooms but at very reasonable rates. (We paid $118 per night!) Coming from Ireland, where cost of living is very high & VAT 23%, good hotels are a fraction of the price of those in the US. We found hotels in the US generally to be quite expensive so were delighted to find a more realistic option at The Shire.

We stayed in a 2 double bed ground floor room - it was beautifully decorated, spacious & very clean. The beds were super comfy. A bonus was that we had a fridge (also that it was already on & cold when we checked in!). This was a welcome surprise as we like to stock up on our own drinks & refreshments & great when traveling with a toddler! The village foodstore is right across the street which is very handy.

No other hotel/ B&B in the area can beat the location - it's right on the river AND every room has a most spectacular view of the river & surrounds. Also it's centrally located - it's only a few minutes walk to shops & restaraunts.

We loved the wide porches and rocking chairs outside our room. The chairs in the garden by the river were lovely too - you could sit there forever and admire the tranquil surrounds.

The Shire is without a doubt our best experience & favourite hotel of our whole trip! We loved it so much we stayed an extra night!

Shire Riverview gets our vote for the best place to stay
in the Woodstock, VT area. The owner went out of his way to make us
feel welcome. Clean, comfortable and spacious. with a view of the river
(when staying in the river-facing rooms) and an area to sit, watch, and listen.
The staff pointed us to restaurants and there are groceries across the street.
Good quality place to stay.

We looked out the window of our room. Geese were in the river and beautiful canvasback ducks. Song birds woke us in the morning and we went to the balcony to have coffee and watch a fly fisher wading down the river. We had the standard room the first night but had the luxury the second night. Both were great but we recommend the luxury room. The staff were very professional and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view room most have it but some don't.
