The 142-room Woodstock Inn & Resort boasts all the amenities and atmospherics of the best inns, but offers so much more in the way of rich history and four-season recreation options for meeting and incentive groups.
The inn sits in the middle of Woodstock, Vt., often called “America’s Prettiest Village.” The town is surrounded by gorgeous scenery and working landscapes, thanks in large part to pioneering environmentalists who grew up in the area, including Fredrick Billings and his granddaughter, Mary French, who married venture capitalist and visionary conservationist Laurance S. Rockefeller. The Rockefellers established the Woodstock Foundation in 1968 as a way to nurture Woodstock’s natural assets.
The foundation opened a new Woodstock Inn on the site of the old one in 1969, and the hotel was subsequently expanded in the 1980s. Recently, the property underwent a comprehensive renovation that included greening its design and operations.
Still owned by the Rockefeller Foundation, the inn today combines the old and the new in a way that is truly luxurious. Each of the guest rooms features regional artwork, wood-beam bed frames with high-end linens, and large tiled baths with oversized showerheads. A full-service spa opened on-site in 2010, joining the resort’s Racquet & Fitness Club.
The inn’s 18-hole Robert Trent Jones–designed golf course was named by Golf Magazine as one of the world’s top 100 courses. Guests also have privileges at the nearby Quechee Club, a private club offering two beautiful 18-hole courses designed by Geoffrey Cornish.
Meeting space includes a 2,730-square-foot ballroom, a purpose-built boardroom, and the Garden Terrace, with stunning views of the grounds. The inn is a 90-minute drive from airports in Manchester, N.H., and Burlington, Vt.
