Lovingly treasured over the years, our beautiful Woodstock Vermont bed and breakfast features exquisite attention to detail that whisks you back to a more elegant time. Original oak wainscoting and moldings, ornate tin ceilings, and cranberry glass lamps mix with stunning chandeliers, custom heavy draperies and hand-printed Bradbury and Bradbury wallpaper added by owners/innkeepers David and Evelyn Brey.
Yet this Woodstock Vermont painted lady is anything but stuffy! You'll notice David's whimsical art pieces hanging alongside the more traditional paintings of his mother -Susan Brey. And, chances are our furry innkeepers, Spanky and Alfalfa, will scamper between your legs sometime during your stay.
Working with Simon Pearce and other notable Woodstock, Vermont attractions and destinations, we've created special Woodstock VT getaway packages and Vermont vacation specials.
