“Awesome place with lots of history and very gracious and friendly hosts”

We loved this Bed and Breakfast in the beautiful Adirondacks. Jim and Kristen Hardman received us into their home as if we were family. They are very gracious, the house is awesome, decorated with the most beautiful antique furniture (you could see that it was furnished by a real professional!) and the breakfast was to die for. We would like to go back again and can strongly recommend the Woodruff House as a must on your visit to the Adirondacks.

Woodruff House is delightful and Kristen and Jim Hardman make it just like home...if your home was a thoughtfully decorated historic house in the middle of bucolic Elizabethtown, NY. Our son stayed in the cupola - had a quiet space all to himself. The porch is a wonderful spot for reading, enjoying a drink before dinner, and for admiring the house cats. Breakfast is a wonder to behold - Kristen outdoes herself with choices and fresh food! Even our teenager had to back away from the table without finishing everything. The house is spotless and roomy.

We had a really lovely time during our brief stay (one night, en route to Montreal.) We arrived late in the evening and were welcomed by Jim -- who showed us around even at that late hour and made us feel very much at home. We were two adults with our 7-year-old son and Kris had assured us beforehand that they could accommodate us comfortably, all in one room. When we walked into our very large and beautiful room (with private bath) we were delighted to discover a small mattress on the floor which had been made up with quilts and even a teddy bear! The breakfast in the morning with Kris was hearty and lovely and our son especially enjoyed the time he got to spend with the family cats in the kitchen. We would definitely stay here again.

Woodruff House owners Kristen and Jim Hardman do a wonderful job of making guests feel very welcome in their lovingly restored, historic house. Renovated and decorated with TLC by the couple, their home is filled with antiques, books and art. Kristen has a wonderful eye, and owns a decorating shop in nearby Willsboro. She prepares a delicious and extremelely generous breakfast, and is happy to accomdate food allergies and preferences. Walking distance to the Deers Head Inn, one of area's best restaurants. We've stayed at the Woodruff House twice, using it as a base to visit our children at camp. Each time, our children have joined us for the second night of the weekend, and the Hardman's have been very fliexible in terms of rearranging our room to accomodate them. We look forward to staying at the Woodruff House next year on vsiting day.
