“Traditional hospitality with comtemporary style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2006

We stayed at the Woodstocker for 2 nights in early October. From the moment we arrived, Dora and David made us feel immediately welcome and at ease. They have apparently only been running the Woodstocker for 12 months and have recently completed a major transformation into a chic but relaxed home away from home.

Our room was quite large with a huge, very comfortable iron framed bed. The bathroom was beautiful; twin roll-top tubs, twin wash basins, a power shower, under-floor heating and a rubber duck! Both the bedroom and bathroom feature lighting installations that will keep any gadget freaks amused for hours. An unobtusive LCD TV with a good selection of channels was located in the bedroom, although is not really necessary as Woodstock and the surrounding area are so beautiful.

Breakfast, as other reviewers have mentioned, is fantastic. A good selection of fresh and organic fayre is complemented by great local coffee and a hot menu which seemed to vary daily; one day we had a traditional english breakfast, the next scrambled eggs with some great salmon.

There is an incredibly well stocked library, which doubles as a communal area, to meet and chat with the other guests. A small kitchen leading off of here is stocked with sodas and hot drinks, as well as a selection of candy and home made delicacies (although these got eaten quite quickly!!)

The "secret garden" at the rear of the rear of the property leads on the foot of Mount Tom, which is a nice climb if you're feeling energetic.

Staying at the Woodstocker is a lovely experience. Whilst the rates are not the cheapest in the area, they are worth every penny.

My dad and I recently took a road trip through the Northeast, and had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Woodstocker. Our room (the Shaftsbury) was quite spacious and super comfortable, and we loved the great breakfasts (locally made sausage, homemade granola and fruit compote, made-to-order eggs, etc.) as well as the treats that were available all day. We especially enjoyed the really fun, interesting group of people that the Woodstocker attracts. It was our first time in Woodstock, and Dora and David were the perfect hosts. We hope to return soon!

Dora and David are operating in their comfort zone, with no reason to try to impress their guests. The phenomenal library, gallery of art, and marriage of contemporary boutique style decor with homestyle comfort woo guests to settle in and close out the world. Pampering Mother Earth and visitors with "green" products and wholesome organic foods is a priority. The newly renovated rooms with their over-the-top bathrooms are a wonder to behold and a dream to experience. They've got it right, stop in and enjoy this treasure.

This is a lovely B and B located about two long blocks from the Green and then a short walk into town. Barring inclement weather, it is an easy walk to shopping and dining.

The innkeepers, Dora and David, who have owned the Inn for a year, are doing a wonderful job to make the inn inviting and welcoming. Dora had menus of many restaurants in town which made it easier to choose a place to have dinner. There is a very nice library downstairs with walls filled top to bottom with books. There are also many travel books of the area and a shelf full of cd's to play on the Bose radio. There is a small kitchenette where there are drinks in the refrigerator, and baskets of candy all around the first floor. There was also banana nut bread the day of our stay. There is a basket of slippers in the hallway downstairs. We were asked to wear them around the house in the evenings so as to not disturb other guests and it was a nice touch, to be thoughtful of others.

Breakfast was very good: eggs, a choice of breakfast meats and mushrooms and tomato, breads and jams, coffee (French press) and teas. There were guests staying there from Australia, England, and the US and it was very nice to visit with them and share experiences.

This inn is on a main street and if you are a light sleeper, please book a room in the rear of the house as street noise can be a problem early in the morning. We had a very nice room on the side of the house which included a sofa as well as a TV and many magazines. There is a wonderful organic soap, locally made, that can be purchased and I am aggravated that I forgot to do so.

Wireless internet is available and when my computer wouldn't cooperate, Dora sat with me trying to get it to connect. When all tries failed, she offered the use of their computer. About three days after our stay, I received an email from Dora and David, hoping we enjoyed our stay with them. I think it is a wonderful idea to follow up with guests. They really care that you have an enjoyable experience and we did.

We visited Woodstock two years ago and had a very average inn experience and were reluctant to return to an inn for our second visit but the Woodstocker was superb and exceeded our expectations.

Dora and David the innkeepers are so welcoming, it is like visiting old friends!

The room was extremely comfortable with huge complimentary fluffy dressing gowns to laze around in, these are most useful for early morning coffee/tea trips to a small kitchen at the back of the Library where the innkeepers leave tea and coffee for their guests to make and enjoy.

Breakfast was delicious with fantatstic homemade granola, scrumptious breads and best of all not a pancake or french toast in sight. After a couple of weeks in the US we were desperate for sausage and bacon and it was the best we have had in along time.

If you are visiting Vermont, it is worth going out of your way, this is a must.

What a fabulous and interesting place! In the middle of chintzy Woodstock which is more like a Hollywood set than a Vermont town, you expect to find a chintzy B & B. Instead we were in designer territory, straight out of the latest design magazine. Amazing decor, wonderful lights, remarkable bathroom and a very welcoming English couple to greet us.

If you want comfort and loads of ideas for your home, I recommend this place. If you want tradition, they showed us rooms they still keep in the Vermont style.

And on top of that, they serve a gourmet organic breakfast.

Strongly recommended.

We had a couple of lovely nights here in early Sept. David and Dora were the perfect hosts. Very nice and comfortable room (once they have finished redecorating all of the rooms in their style, it will be stunning). The nicest thing about it was feeling so at home, taking advantage of their library of books, board games and free drinks/chocolates. Can't recommend it highly enough.
