  • Introduction

    Welcome to October Country Inn!

    Among Vermont inns in the Woodstock and Killington areas, October Country Inn Bed and Breakfast is loved for its New England hospitality and relaxed atmosphere, farmhouse charm, hearty country breakfasts and internationally-themed dinners cooked to gourmet standards, served family-style.

    Located in New England's central Vermont region, between Killington and Woodstock, October Country Inn accommodations include ten guest rooms, two dining rooms, and a cozy living room.

    Our Vermont inn is a unique and beautiful country bed and breakfast inn, featuring antique quilts, lace curtains, fresh flowers, and a wonderful potbellied stove. The living room is country living at its best with its comfortable overstuffed furniture, a fireplace at one end, and a piano at the other. It's elegant in a "farmhouse charm" sort of way.

     

    Breakfast

    Start your morning with a hearty country breakfast. Wake up to freshly brewed coffee or tea. Help yourself to homemade granola, yogurt, your choice of cereals, fruit, juice and freshly baked muffins before you sit down to a hot country breakfast of cinnamon raisin French toast with Vermont maple syrup, sausages and fresh fruit; or scrambled eggs with Vermont cheddar cheese, bacon and fresh fruit; or sour cream pancakes with sausages and fresh fruit.

    While you are in New England enjoy the area attractions, such as Killington Resort - including skiing/snowboarding in winter; and golf, hiking and biking in the summer, Billings Farm, Green Mountain Railroad, and much more!
