I will take each and every opportunity I’m given to visit Woodstock, Vermont, and specifically The Woodstock Inn & Resort. No matter the time of year, Woodstock is gorgeous. Seriously, I dare you not to think it’s charming and quaint even on a rainy January day. And don’t get me started on the fall! Picturesque.
I feel like the character Stefan from SNL when I say the Woodstock Inn has everything. Center of town? Check. Close to Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Park? Check. Great for couples? Yep. Perfect for a girl’s getaway? Definitely.
The latter was my most recent experience at The Woodstock Inn. I was invited to visit to experience the hotel, its amenities, and its restaurants. No question, I obviously needed to bring my mother. We dined in The Red Rooster restaurant, played tennis at the Woodstock Athletic Club (one of the best lessons of my life – and I play a lot!), and relaxed at The Woodstock Inn’s spa.
The food was as expected – absolutely phenomenal. I’m drooling thinking of the short ribs paired perfectly with a Trefethen cab. The spa was incredibly relaxing. I would’ve been happy curling up in a robe on their chaise lounges, but I also experienced a spa service. (I’m lucky, I know!)
One of the most special experiences was a tour of The Red Barns at Kelly Way Gardens and a tomato-tasting led by Master Gardener Benjamin Pauly. Ben is inspiring. He’s created a beautiful garden that is overflowing with the most incredible plants and vegetables. The Red Barns is also an event space and offers a farm-to-table program.
I think about my experience at The Woodstock Inn every week, at least. I’m always plotting my return to Woodstock and the Woodstock Inn, especially to recreate this special experience. I hope you visit the Woodstock Inn and experience the magic of their property.
