You're likely to fall in love at the first sight of this 1828 three-story brick building, which forms the centerpiece of a 15-acre retreat. There's another 19th-century building, along with a motel-style log lodge dating from 1968. Many of the rooms have a fireplace or a Franklin stove, and some have private decks or terraces. The motel units boast country antiques and reproductions. A spring-fed pond has a white sand beach with toys for kids. In the restaurant, the chef
creates locally sourced New England dishes such as rabbit ragu and turkey potpie, and offers an award-winning wine list.

This inn, featured in an 1980's Budweiser Christmas commercial,is what you are looking for in a Vermont country inn. It has fabulous accomodations (canopy beds, fireplaces etc.), wonderful food (make sure you try the mushroom pate) and the best location, (bend of a road, horse country, south of Woodstock, beside a country store). For sheer New England pleasure it can't be beat! Best of all, it allows well behaved dogs!
