A small gem: beautiful and comfortable rooms, lovely and gracious hosts, and incredibly tasty, bountiful breakfast (complete with fresh-squeezed orange juice!). We were welcomed not only by the owner, but also by a friendly deer, grazing as we parked the car. Can only imagine how beautiful and lush it must be in the summer.

Only an hour and a half by train from New York City, Woodstock has retained the charm of small town America, with boutiques galore for shopping and some good restaurants as well. This enchanting little hideaway oozes charm, reflecting the personalities of its lovely owners, John and Catherine. The house is meticulously clean and well-furnished with beautiful antiques and much...

Hard to imagine a more delightful bed and breakfast experience than we just had at the DeForest House. All the elements that you (or at least we) would want for that weekend away: beautiful house, comfy room and bed, absolutely delicious breakfast, and gracious and engaging hosts Catherine and John who made us feel right at home. Will definitely be...

What a wonderful stay! The room beautiful, the bed super-comfy ... and Catherine's considerate hospitality and elegant touches made us feel welcome and pampered. She made dinner reservations for us, served a delicious breakfast ... it was a delightful place to stay.

The rooms were comfortable and clean with lots of attention to details. The next morning we were pampered by coffee served to the room...

My husband and I stayed here at the beginning of October. Our stay could not have been better. After our drive from JFK to Woodstock, we were welcomed warmly by Catherine and John despite our late arrival. The room was immaculate, plenty of towels and toiletries. Breakfast was plentiful, far too much for two. Fresh orange juice, fresh fruit, yoghurts,...

We almost always stay in a BnB when we go away. Catherine and John are amongst the top hosts we have ever stayed with. Catherine is delightful. My husband can sit and talk to John for hours.

We can't say enought about our stay. Do I start with the brilliant and welcoming hosts, Catherine and John Mason? Or do I start by describing driving up to their countryside property? We learned about the art colony that was Woodstock, in the 19th century. Books, even art supportsJohn's discussion. Bytheway, our 'Morroccan Room" had plenty of lovely touches. Our...

We stayed at DeForest House for 6 nights in September, 2016, and enjoyed every moment. We are hardy travelers who rise early, spend all day out sightseeing and enjoying the area, and retire comparatively early to relax and plan the next day. This means we did not take advantage of our hosts' hospitality to the extent that others surely do,...
