Best Hotels in Vermont
A slice of Americana in a pretty New England town.
This historic property has been frequented by vacationers for many years who have come for spring and summer activities, turning autumn leaves, and an abundance of winter sports.. Owned by the grandson of John D. Rockefeller, its original structure dates back to 1792. It is a favorite site for meetings and conferences. The style of the 142 rooms is contemporary, with old-fashioned touches such as wood-burning fireplaces and handmade quilts. Furnishings such as bookshelves and love seats provide a homey feel. The wide variety of accommodations includes Porch Rooms with glassed-in sun porches and third-floor Tavern Wing Suites with master bedrooms. Restaurants range from the formal dining room to the casual Eagle Café to Richardson's Tavern, which hosts live music on weekends. Guests enjoy privileges at the nearby Woodstock Country Club (for golf) and Health & Fitness Center (for swimming, squash and more.) The concierge is quite knowledgeable, and can offer comprehensive information on snow shoeing, hiking, bicycling and self-guided canoeing and kayaking tours.
