A couple weeks ago, I was lucky enough to visit Woodstock, Vermont and stay at the 506 On The River Inn. If you’ve been to Woodstock, Vermont, you know how quaint it is. It maintains that small town feel, which is rare these days. After all the traveling I had done in October, a trip to Woodstock and a stay at The 506 was just what I needed.
The 506 On The River Inn is a charming boutique inn minutes from downtown Woodstock. With only 28 rooms, you feel as though you’re visiting family. Which is why I started calling the inn by the nickname, The 506.
When entering The 506, you’ll immediately notice the details. The decor is mostly vintage and super unique. Definitely explore the hotel because you don’t want to miss one of the antique typewriters, vintage newspapers hanging on the walls, or salvaged furniture. As an avid traveler, I personally enjoyed these vintage suitcases.
After checking in, I immediately head to my room to relax for a minute. The room was cozy and the beds were super comfy. I especially loved the throw pillows. The view wasn’t too shabby either. My room overlooked the river behind the hotel. The view was picturesque.
I mean, look at this view! Even though temps outside were on the brink of freezing, I wrapped up in a blanket and sat on the porch. It was lovely and peaceful. Blue lips and all. Fun fact: this view actually changed a bit overnight. If you followed my Instagram takeover of @506ontheriverinn, you know what I’m talking. Or you can hang tight, and keep reading.
When you’re ready to venture outside of your room, the 506 Bistro and Lounge are ready to welcome you. With multiple leather couches and a fireplace to cozy up to, this space is the heart of the inn. (Also, hi, when can I move in?)
The salvaged bar is probably my favorite thing about The 506. It’s BEAUTIFUL. You definitely want to hang out here and have a cocktail or two.
Even the beer taps are original. How cool, right?
The 506 Bistro is the inn’s yummy restaurant. I had dinner here on the night I arrived. Their menu is delicious. I tried the deviled eggs, chicken and barley pot pie, and stuffed squash ratatouille. Everything had great flavor and really hit the spot. After dinner, I was hoping to head to the game room for some pool but I crashed hard. It had been a long day/month and I was excited to sleep.
The next morning I woke up very well rested to a very different view. It snowed overnight. SNOWED. It’s too soon, but it was really charming.
After I pull on all the layers, I head to the lounge for breakfast.
The complementary country breakfast is served in the kitchen located in the lounge. The kitchen nook is adorable. Major #kitchengoals. If you’re into interior design, it’s fun to explore the details in the kitchen. Again, no detail is overlooked. Obviously.
I know they say to wait an hour after eating before you swim, but I couldn’t resist. The 506 pool was calling my name. Sidenote: a swim right about now sounds divine.
After the dip, I start to pack up and check out. This gem of an inn was really what I needed to decompress and escape the city for a weekend.
Do as this pillow says, folks – “Keep calm and move to Vermont.” Or at least visit for a weekend and enjoy a lovely stay at The 506.
A million thank yous to the 506 On The River Inn in Woodstock, Vermont for generously hosting me! If you’re interested in staying at the 506 On The River Inn, visit their website at www.ontheriverwoodstock.com. All opinions and images are my own.
