“Nice place for a ridiculous price”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Went here for a wedding recently. Room was descent, nothing special. Bathroom needed updating. Bed was ok. Pond was very nice, but it's only "open" for 6 hours a day. Right next to a fairly busy little country road, so not gonna feel secluded at all. Breakfasts (and the place does tout themselves as a bed and breakfast and has a full service restaurant) were typical continental variety that you'd find at a national chain in a buffet. Nothing like what I'd expect from a B&B especially for this price. Note to owners, if you want people to come in for dinner, best to give them a breakfast that wows! I heard that the dinners are pretty good, but I wasn't going to pay $25 to find out, especially considering the breakfasts.

I don't appreciate being taken for $240 a night for a completely average room just because I am within driving distance of Boston and NYC. I have stayed in places twice this nice for half the price with gorgeous views of the Rockies right out the window or even ocean front views.

This town in general is a ridiculous tourist trap and this place is equally ridiculous. Personally, I would only stay here if I had to, and luckily, I probably won't have to ever again.

We’re sorry that you didn’t enjoy your visit to the Woodstock area. The bride and groom having their wedding in Woodstock that weekend were so excited to share this piece of Vermont with their guests; they feel it is a special place. We are also sorry that you didn’t enjoy your room at the KVI. We have completed a near total renovation of the Inn, including new carpet, paint, window treatments and flat-screen TV’s, but there are a few baths which remain to be done this winter. Our complimentary and extensive hot breakfast has always been a highlight for our guests, as our many positive reviews show. We offer a rotating selection of house-baked muffins and breads, egg dishes, local bacon and maple-braised sausage, pancakes or waffles, and maple syrup made by our neighbors up the hill. In fact, the bride and groom chose to have a post-wedding brunch at the Inn because they love our breakfasts so much. The KVI is certainly not the most expensive Inn in the area, nor is it the cheapest. There are several local motels which offer more basic and simple lodging, without the charm and character of the KVI, that cost less than the KVI. The vast majority of our guests are more than happy they chose the KVI over the alternatives.

Just returned from two nights at Kedron Valley and it was perfect for our family of four. We booked the suite, Room 30, and it was beautiful! Large King BR for us downstairs with a large sitting area/kitchenette and two twin beds upstairs! One large bathroom with jacuzzi tub. Breakfast was delicious and cooked to order. Swimming in the clean pond was a highlight - loved the raft! Could have spent hours more reading on the porch. Great trip!

I had the pleasure of shaing a meal with several friends last evening at the Kedron Valley Inn. Even with thunder storms circling around the area, we sat on the front porch and had a delightful meal. Very nice menu, great selections and very reasonable prices. The food and service was outstanding and everyone was friendly. They made us feel at ease and I look forward to several repeat visits to work my way through all that they have to offer.

I called the Kedron a week before our stay to cancel our room based on Doctor's orders for me not to leave home due to risk of pre-term labor. This would have been our 2nd time staying at the Inn. 1st stay was relatively pleasant, barring the unwelcoming attitude towards our dog - even at a "dog friendly" place. When needing to cancel our 2nd visit, I was told they couldn't make any exceptions to their 2 week cancellation policy. They offered to postpone our reservation for 6 months but I explained again that I have a baby on the way and there would be no way we'd come within the 6 months. That was all they could offer.

Customer service goes a long way... if I felt they showed some understanding to our particular situation, than we'd consider staying there again. But that won't be happening.

Unfortunately, as a smaller property, late cancellations create major problems for us because it is often difficult to re-sell rooms at the last minute. We do have a more liberal cancellation policy than similar properties in the area. In this case, we offered to return the deposit if we could re-sell the room, and we made a special allowance for the guest to keep the deposit active for another 6 months without penalty, going above and beyond our standard policy. Like most other hotels, we suggest that guests secure inexpensive travel insurance in case of a last minute change in plans. It is unfair to place this burden on the Inn.

Just recently visited this inn and was impressed with the newly renovated rooms. The room was comfy and relaxing with its old worldly atmosphere. The staff was very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and provide excellent service. In the tavern the food was outstanding and service was prompt. Would recommend anyone visiting Woodstock to stay at this inn. Overall the experience was excellent.

This inn is at a very pretty spot on a quiet country road with a pond in back for a cool dip in the summer. The restaurant and bar are pleasant, and the food is actually quite good. Breakfast is a buffet, but they also cook fresh egg dishes, and is overall tasty and pleasant in a sunroom. The bed was very comfortable, and the rooms very clean. We rented 2 rooms: a lodge room for kids and dogs, and a tavern room for the 2 grown ups. The negative is that this is an old inn, and it has not been kept up in terms of modern design and expectations. So think linoleum and small bathrooms, somewhat dated rugs and furnishings. You need to balance the good with the old here. The staff are very, very nice, which for me tips the scales so I will stay here again. If you do not like the old, then I'd probably opt for the Woodstock Inn. Or if you want atmospheric old with more luxury, the Blue Horse Inn. But we still do like the Kedron, and will continue to stay here on occasion.

Room Tip: The lodge rooms allow dogs. Tavern rooms tend to be large in size, and the inn rooms nicely decorate...

We have stayed at the Kedron Valley Inn many times over the past 10 years. My wife and I have stayed pretty much everywhere in the Woodstock and South Woodtock area. Our recent visit last weekend was fabulous and memorable. Our dinner was excellent and the best that I have had in the area. Recently renovated rooms were also spacious, comfortable and wonderfully furnished. We go to horse shows at GMHA a few times per year and this is the best place to stay. Wendy and her staff are gracious, helpful and friendly. Stay here!
