We always knew we wanted to visit Woodstock, VT. We have heard such great things about it. We finally decided to take a road trip north when our friends told us about this wonderful new family owned Inn "On the River".
We drove into Woodstock, after many hours on the road, with two very tired children and found the hotel without any trouble. It is right on the river, as the name suggests, and just a few miles from town.
We checked in smoothly. The receptionist was very welcoming. We were told that it was "burger" night" in the restaurant. That was a big hit with the kids so we quickly decided that we would not have to go out again, but that we would stay there for dinner.
After unloading the bags we went to the restaurant. Lively jazz was playing in the bar. There seemed to be a bit of a local buzz in the bar. The decor was so cool! Old barn wood and leather couches....it was so inviting after traveling all day. I remember my husband saying he wished that we had a babysitter for the night. It was such a great spot to hang out and have a drink!
Now here comes the family friendly part. The kids discovered an awesome game room in the hotel. They had old pinball machines and air hockey. The kids loved it - so of course - so did we! One of the waitresses said it was a family owned hotel and that the owners have young kids so they understand what families need when they are traveling.
I would highly recommend 506 On the River for any family (or couple) traveling through Woodstock. We even went into the river in front of the hotel with the kids. I am not sure we were supposed to - but we did.
We will definitely visit Woodstock again and definitely stay at 506 On the River Inn.
