My wife and I were passing through Woodstock on our way to Montreal and decided to spend the night there. After a long drive, we felt like we were transported to the South of France. We were so charmed by The DeForest House the minute we entered it. John and Catherine are the nicest folks. They really want you to... More

The innkeepers, Catherine and John, made our stay enjoyable and memorable. Catherine's effervescent personality and John's ability to enlighten us on various historical subjects made for entertaining and interesting conversation. Catherine offered us sparkling water with fresh-squeezed lemon upon arrival, along with convivial conversation about her fondness for home decorating. John's family antiques were scattered throughout the renovated farm home,... More

We went to Woodstock to hike in the Catskills and relax. The DeForest House was a wonderful place to stay and we will definitely return here. We stayed in the Moroccan room which was charming. Very clean and comfortable with its own balcony terrace. The Masons were great hosts, giving us tips on where to eat, hike, etc. They made... More

Catherine and John have truly created a wonderful getaway B&B. The house is set back from the road on about 4 acres of wooded property. They could not be any nicer and the breakfast exudes Catherine's fun and festive taste. I don't think we'll be staying at another B&B next time we're in Woodstock. This place is just what we...

They know everything you should know about the area and have plenty of suggestions on how to spend your day. Catherine is a wonderful cook and sets the most exquisite table. This B & B is... More

Wow! The house is amazing. It is 5 star service in a B&B. Catherine and JOhn are in house guides, historians and truly magical hosts. The breakfast review hype was actually matched and exceeded. We will be back.
