I just returned home today after a weekend retreat at Good Commons. This is a special place with warmth, phenomenal energy and spectacular food that nurtures your body spirit and tastebuds. I will be back. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!
I've had the good fortune to attend yoga retreats in many locations, and this place is perfection. The host, Tesha, was born to do this work--she loves people, and she loves making you feel welcome, relaxed, and at home. The building is clean, roomy, and perfectly situated for time together, or apart. Modern amenities provide comfort, but the charm is intact. The location is central to many wonderful diversions, should you want a hike, a swim, to go skiing, or to shop in a picturesque small town. Finally, the food!!! The food was fresh, delicious, and accommodated the variety of dietary needs in our group. In addition to a wellness retreat, this venue would be perfect for a family reunion, a gathering of friends, or a small wedding.
Loved the local character and sense of community at Good Commons. Wonderful spot to meet like-minded folks into yoga, health and delicious/healthy foods. Great place for big city weekend break. We didn't actually lodge here but attended a 6-course tasting dinner with local foods and wine prepared by a local well-regarded chef.
Good Commons is a retreat center, that even families can rent for vacations. I was there for a Tapestry Retreat. We were a group of 13. The facility had a nice big room for our meetings.. The beds are very comfortable and the bedrooms and living areas very cozy. I was surprised at how many bathrooms with showers were available, and there was always plenty of hot water. Tesha is the owner/operator/chef. She was very aware of all of our needs and very accommodating. I am on a very particular food plan. I didn't have to bring anything. She made special side dishes for me of anything that didn't fit into my food plan. Plus they were delicious!. I have never gone anywhere to eat that catered to my dietary needs as well. We all felt she should create a cook book! There is a very nice hot tub for use that has wonderful jets, and a fire pit where we sat and told stories and contemplated the flames.... The surrounding area is very picturesque. We drove into Woodstock to see the covered bridges and very quaint shopping areas. Also made a stop at the Old Country Store of course. I highly recommend staying at Good Commons if you have a retreat, meeting, or family group outing!…
A group of 20 friends booked this house for our annual ski weekend in Vermont this year and it was perfect. The house is was comfortable and clean. It easily accommodated our large group with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms as well as large kitchen, dining and living areas. It was family friendly and sound-proof so that the babies sleeping upstairs could not hear the adults in the evenings. It is well located on a main road near to Killington, Okemo, the Longtrail Brewery and other attractions. We really enjoyed this beautiful space and look forward to booking it again next year!
