“Norwich Family Weekend 2010”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2010

Had a pleasant stay at the Woods in Willow and Birch cottages. The Woods provides cottages that are both quaint and a little rustic. Amenities that are needed to make you feel comfortable and at home are provided. My teenagers enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the cottages at the Woods. My college son wants us to stay @ the Woods again next year for Norwich's Family Weekend....that says it all!!!!

This is my 4th visit to The Woods and I am every bit as charmed as I was the first time. I have set up a tent down by the stream, stayed in a bunkhouse with several friends and am currently enjoying one of the several fully equipped cabins. This place is perfect if you simply want to relax, be left alone, walk in the woods, sit by the stream or around a campfire at night, take a dip in the pool or by the waterfall, enjoy the songs of the birds morning and evening.
Warning - If you are looking for exciting party life, or strenuous athletic games, if you desire upscale hotel, motel or bed and breakfast accommodations with room service and high-speed Internet - not here. They do have wireless Internet but it is a bit slow which fits the laid-back atmosphere.
However, the owners are friendly and go out of their way to ensure each guest has what they might wish, without being nosy or bossy. The cabins are well outfitted with small kitchenettes, separate bedrooms and warm showers.
The town of Northfield is close by and has a few restaurants, a grocer and several small shops.
I adore this place.

The property itself is lovely and heavily wooded. The accommodations, however, have seen better days. Cleaning is apparantly not a strong suit as our cabin had cobwebs in a lot of corners and dead bugs in the cobwebs (also a dead baby bird on the deck). All of the furnishings needed to be replaced years ago. The couch was a sink hole and the bed was incredibly hard. The building itself has been freshly painted but that does not help stop the wood that is clearly rotting away beneath the coat of paint. The satellite tv really isn't as it only gets about 10 channels, would be better advertised as local plus a few. Internet service was down when we initially arrived (and this is the one feature I asked about since we actually needed it) and when restored did not run fast enough to be effective. Just note that cell service is nonexistent at the campground and was in fact poor in the entire town of Northfield. All in all I cannot recommend this property unless you really like a rustic experience.

Lovely cabin with kitchen, gorgeous patio, beautiful wooded surroundings. The family that owns and runs the property is very helpful and welcoming. We highly recommend.
