The Shire Woodstock

Reviewed February 3, 2014

We have also stayed at Woodstock Inn, but enjoy the Shire just as much. Love to have coffee in our room overlooking the Ottauquechee. Convenient walking to everything in town, especially Mac's Market across the street (for yummy cinnamon buns to go with out coffee!). Great rates and were able to get discount tickets for Killington from the office. Room was spacious (even with two kids with us) and nicely furnished. We will definitely return!

The Shire Riverview brought back memories of when I was younger and vacationing with my parents. The feel of the Shire was old yet up to date with the staff being very friendly and the room very adequate with out being more than you need. The location was right in the middle of what we needed with a grocery store directly across the street. Restaurants and shops a mere 5 minute drive or a short walk away if so desired. I felt very at home there. I was very glad we stayed there. I would highly recommend the Shire for your stay if traveling to or thru Woodstock.

My son stayed just one night, but the room was very spacious with a king bed. Having the view of the river in the morning was fantastic. The general manager, Dave, is a terrific and accommodating guy. My son will be taking advantage of their long term stay efficiency as he relocates to the area. Great value, great service, nice rooms all equal a well run property. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view of the river

We've been to the Shire many times, and for the money and river view, the value is great. The rooms vary, some have hard mattresses, our last room on the first floor was very comfortable. Maid services varies each day. Sometimes old cups with liquid from our morning coffee are still there when we return. However, having that coffee machine available is a plus. We would definitely go back.

Room Tip: River view great - second floor was nosier than the first.. pipes from heat banging in the night - t...

This is our 3rd annual winter weekend in Woodstock. The Shire has made some needed upgrades to the rooms. They were just wonderful! the Shire is so convenient to the town's main street, in walking distance to the restaurants and shops and directly across the street from a nice grocery store. We will definitely be returning next year!

Room Tip: Recommend room on first floor if you have lots of winter gear.

I spent a night at the Shire with my wife in January. Rates were reasonable and the room was very nice and clean with a view of the river. A great place to stay in Woodstock. The clerk at the check-in desk was friendly if a bit disorganized.

We were back at the Shire over Christmas and had another perfect stay! Room great, staff great, great everything...
And then the view of the river... It was just starting to ice up, brown trees reflecting and tiny dabs of snow floating. I am a photographer and have a memorable shot.
We will always be back!
