More about Village Inn of Woodstock
Luxurious beds,wonderful breakfasts
Enormous luxurious beds in dark cosy inn but with bright efficient bathrooms (not always the case in old inns). Evelyn served the most wonderful breakfasts each day, remembering each of her guests names and describing each course, there was just too much for us and she kindly wrapped the coffee cake for a snack later in the day. David was busy in the kitchen, great hosts. There is also a bar but David and Evelyn leave the premises at 9pm. Walking distance of shops and restaurants, Woodstock is pretty but not very big so restaurant choice is a bit limited and shops are closed in the evening. Great for a short break, wonderful countryside.
Best New England experience!
Our stay was delightful from the first conversation with Evelyn on our way into town, to the morning of our departure. Evelyn and Dave are two people who I believe were meant to be in the role of inkeepers. They are talented and personable..such warm and lovely hosts.
The inn has been restored to perfection and furnished and decorated with great care and talent. As a design professional, I was convinced at first sight that it had been professionally done. I was thoroughly impressed to learn that Evelyn had chosen each of the beautiful pieces that grace this authentically Victorian inn. The fabrics and hand-printed wallpapers were a delight to the senses, along with a notable collection of artwork of various types.
We peeked into not-yet-occupied rooms and swooned over each and every one. Evelyn and Dave allowed us to see their newest addition, a large and luxurious new guest room with a more-than-ample marble bath and shower. A sure choice for our next visit. We had chosen a small but elegant room on the third floor, with a comfortable king-sized bed covered in high thread count linens and embellished with fine fabrics and trims..
Breakfast, a fine three course experience, was topped only by Evelyn's warm service and pleasing personality..it was like having a relaxing breakfast with friends. Dave popped his head out of the kitchen periodically, to greet new guests or to chat for a moment...when he was missing in action, eggs of your choice, perfectly done, would appear in his place. Evelyn's baking background produced sweet second courses, including her astonishingly good apple cake, the recipe for which she gracously shared...I can't wait to try it and impress friends and family. When we go back to Woodstock...and I am certain we will, we won't waste time looking at any other inns online...we'll just call Evelyn and Dave.
A terrific inn
We spent a delightful weekend here with another couple for our 36th anniversary. Dave and Evelyn are warm and friendly hosts, and the word "no" is not in their vocabulary. They can't do enough to make you feel at home. The rooms are charming, comfortable and fully equipped, and very quiet at night. Breakfast varies daily and features Evelyn's breads and other baked good and is superb. And of course, the inn has a cute little dog. You can't go wrong here. We'll be back someday.
The Village Inn Is Home
My wife and I spent a nice long weekend with Evelyn and David at the Village Inn in early November and would highly recommend it to anyone. It was our third stay at the Inn and we have enjoyed it every time. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast wonderful and the welcome we've received has been outstanding.
Our only complaint about our stays has nothing to do with Evelyn and David or the Inn itself. It has to with inconsiderate guests. This last visit, we had guests in the next room who blasted their TV until late at night and talked very loudly after that. It is hard to relax when you are forced to listen to someone else's TV choices and hear their conversations. Again, this wasn't the Innkeepers fault and it shouldn't be held against them. Our disrupted night was the fault of adults who should have known better.
Even with our inconsiderate neighbors, we had a great time and will return.
Just got back from two nights in Woodstock, and I would highly recommend the Village Inn of Woodstock. The room was charming, the food was delicious, and the owners were two of the nicest people I've ever met! The town is great, and staying at this inn made the stay that much more pleasant!
Charming Vermont Inn
This place is wonderful. We stayed for one night only (unfortunately) in November. As we were only passing through, we booked one of the cheaper rooms - Room 9, however, I can assure you that this will not disappoint, with luxury red fabrics and possibly the best bed I have ever slept in.
The Inn is just a short stroll to the main street which has many quaint shops and places to eat. Perhaps the best part of the Village Inn at Woodstock is the homemade breakfast, which was unique and prepared using locally produced ingredients. It was to die for and your hosts will endeavour to meet your every need. You eat in a charming dining room, with a roaring log fire. If you want luxury accommodation in the heart of Woodstock, then you can make no better choice.
We were lucky enough to wake up to the first snowfall of the year - Woodstock could not have looked any more picturesque.
Wonderful place among many
In a town full of Inns and B & B's, this place really stands out. Evelyn and David are terrrific innkeepers and have done a great job with decorating and creating a true home away from home. When you walk in, you're greeted by "Spanky" the miniature dachsund who happily welcomes all guests. The bar area and dining room are georgous, surrounded in rich wood panelling. Room number 8 was a hike to the 3rd floor and, while not a large room, was beautifully appointed and very comfortable. I often finds that New England inns sacrifice comfort when they apoint their rooms with antiques. This was not the case at the Village Inn and they had a great combination of luxury and good looks. I highly recommend the Village Inn.
The Innkeepers were great! The B&B and furnishings are beautiful; however, it is located on the main thoroughfare in Woodstock, which provided a great deal of road noise. Also, many of the rooms are on the 3rd floor, so be prepared to carry luggage up 3 flights of stairs.
Wonderful 40th birthday
My husband surprised me with a weekend getaway at this amazing b&b. Awesome rooms, terrific hosts, and the best breakfast ever! I had a huge waffle one morning, and my husband loved Evelyn's granola. The next day David's entree was a quiche with lobster and wild mushrooms. I don't eat shellfish, so I ordered eggs that were poached perfectly. We were in Room 5 - loved the romance and privacy.
Just got back from cross country skiing and poking around Woodstock and loved the inn. Innkeepers were interesting, fun people (and one dog), cute bar and huge/great breakfast.
