A grand New England resort
142 Rooms / 9 Suites
Woodstock Inn & Resort is in the picturesque town of Woodstock, Vermont. Founded by Laurance Rockefeller, now owned and operated by the Woodstock Foudation, this grand 142-room hotel has recently undergone a $2.6 million upgrade of its first-floor public spaces. The lobby, library, front lawn and entrance were renovated to embrace its Federal roots and pay homage to its founders.
With abundant activities all year long, guests who crave adventure will not lack for things to do. In the warmer months, play 18 holes on the Robert Trent Jones Sr. golf course or take a spin around Woodstock Village Green on one the resort’s cruiser bikes.
In the winter, the Tubbs Snowshoes & Nordic Adventure Center offers groomed trails for cross-country skiing, fat biking or snowshoeing while downhill skiers head over to nearby Suicide Six Ski Area.
The resort’s own certified organic gardens provide its restaurants with fresh produce and flowers daily, including vegetables, herbs, berries and edible flowers.
