Woodstock Alternative

Hi I was wondering if anyone could help, I was looking for accommodation in Woodstock for two nights on the 4th & 5th October but we seem to have picked the busiest weekend in the area. Either everything is already fully booked or out of our price range - can anyone suggest a few alternative towns/villages in the area that we could try. We are coming from Northern Ireland for a trip to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary and will be staying in Jackson NH for two nights before and then after heading onto probably Stockbridge, Rhode Island & Cape Cod. Many thanks for any help on an alternative to Woodstock.

From Jackson, NH you can head west on 302 (very pretty drive through Crawford Notch) and head over to the Waterbury, VT area on I-89. From there, you can go north to Stowe or south along Route 100 through Waitsfield and Warren, which is known as the Mad River Valley. I'd recommend the latter as there are a number of nice Inns and B&Bs dotted throughout that area, from high-end to very basic, and I think the area is somewhat of an undiscovered gem in Vermont. When you leave, keep traveling south on Route 100 for an exceptionally scenic drive down through central and southern Vermont.

By the way, my wife and I honeymooned in 2007 in Ireland, and traveled through northern Ireland with stops in Ballycastle, Bushmills and Portrush. The Downhill Hostel near Portrush was simply amazing. We'd love to return for our 10-year.

I agree...try Waitsfield and Warren. The 1st 2 weekends of October are the very busiest time here in Vermont as you are finding out!

Morning Wendy,

Adam has some good suggestions and I'll drop you a personal note with some more. You are visiting at the busiest time of the year and places get booked up ealry.
