I wish I could communicate the high expectations and standards I have for vacation getaways. My husband and I rely on Trip Advisor for choosing hotels and restaurants. Thanks to other reviewers we chose the Jackson House Inn for a last minute weekend away for the 4th of July. I almost picked the Woodstock Inn because it was the easy way out but instead we opted for this B & B. My husband dreaded the thought that we were going to pull up to a New England inn and find the antique character to actually be a musty, old lodging. How wrong he was. The Jackson House Inn is immaculate and so homey and comfortable. We did stop into the Woodstock Inn and found it to have a rather stuffy hotel atmosphere. It looked nice but it was not what we wanted for a Vermont weekend.
From the moment we walked in until the time we left Kathy and Rick were the most gracious, kind hosts. We booked a suite but like others we toured open rooms and found them all to be outstanding and beautiful. The grounds are perfect too. The inn is a mile and a half west of downtown which is a great location. It was close enough for an easy drive but far enough away to sit on the porch to read and chat in peace.
Another thing I must mention in this review is a restaurant that they sent us to Saturday night. It is in Reading so it won't come up on a search under Woodstock. It is called Keeper's Cafe on Route 106 and it is a MUST to go to for dinner. The charm and menu are classic Vermont. Like the inn it is family run and so unique and special.
Before we left we promised ourselves that we will be back. If you are planning on visiting Woodstock make The Jackson House Inn you place to stay. You will love it too.
