“Deer Brook Inn: Lovely -- and those great breakfasts!”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

My husband and I decided at the last minute to go to Vermont over the Memorial Day Weekend. Relying on Tripadvisor, we booked for that very night a room at the Deer Brook Inn. We weren't disappointed -- Deer Brook and its proprietors deserve the superlatives it gets on this board in terms of charm, friendliness, helpfulness...and those tasty breakfasts! We were in room 4 on the second floor which was lovely. The room is described as having a view of the river which is technically accurate -- but not that big a deal as the river is not much to look at from that vantage point and route 4 runs in front of the house so unless you want to spend your time staring out at a busy road to see the river... But I imagine if you're coming to Woodstock, you have better things to do in any case! The room is large, tastefully decorated, clean, and the king bed was very comfortable. There were guests occupying some of the other rooms, but the walls are thick so you don't hear much of them (unlike other B&Bs we've stayed at). David and George are lovely hosts and very friendly/helpful. Breakfast was at 8:30 or 9. David's breakfasts are delicious and beautiful. First morning, we had blueberry pancakes, a big slice of cantalope & maple sausage (my favorite of the breakfasts!); next day it was feathered eggs (I forgot what he called it), fruit cup and coffee cake, and our last morning, apple pancakes, banana bread and a fruit cup parfait w/ granola & low-fat yogurt. Always served w plenty of coffee & OJ mixed w/ cranberry juice. The weather was beautiful so we were able to eat breakfast on their back porch, which overlooks their huge backyard/fields. We immediately felt relaxed and on vacation just sitting there! They also provide for guest use a little communal fridge in the dining room, to store drinks or other food items, which was convenient.

The inn is situated a few miles (at least) from the town center in Woodstock, so you definitely need a car. We enjoyed being away from the town though, given how busy it was over the Memorial Day Weekend. The Woodstock Farmers Market is en route to the town, and a nice place to stop to pick up sandwiches for hikes and other sundry items and gifts. David clearly appreciates good eats -- I had done some research on Chowhound in advance and David helped to give us the down low on various area restaurants. We had dinner at the Barnard Inn Tavern and the Prince and Pauper -- if we had one more night, we would have checked out Maplewood at the Lincoln Inn or tried to make it to Hen of the Woods in Waterbury). They also were very informative and helpful when we were planning out each day's excursions, whether it was hiking nearby Mount Tom's South Peak, recommending Sugarbush Farm (oh the cheese!) or suggesting scenic drives.

We would definitely love to return to Deer Brook Inn!

My7 yr old daughter, my husband and I came to VT from NC to visit family. George and David were so nice, extremely patient and accommodating. We stayed for four nights and had a wonderful time. Our room was very comfortable and clean, breakfast was always something new and yummy and the inn and grounds are nicely maintained and comfortable. We will definitely come back if we can!

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are comfortable.

the inn looked inviting from the outside but even cozier on the inside. The two owners were so nice, very helpful w/sightseeing and restaurants and breakfast was fantastic. All in all it made for a very relaxing spontaneous getaway

Room Tip: we had the king size room facing the street. If noise is a problem you may want a backside room but...

This is a wonderfully cozy, comfortable and welcoming B&B located just outside of Woodstock. Breakfasts are absolutely fantastic. David and George are terrific, affable hosts and innkeepers, and they know the Woodstock area inside and out. Their recommendations, whether they be for restaurants, one of a kind shops, or snowmobile tours, were consistently excellent. They are exceptional people, and this is an exceptional country inn.

Great location, Deer Brook Inn is located right in the middle of Woodstock and Killington ski area. It's about 15-20 min to each direction. Best bet when you go skiing in Killington. The owners greet you in the morning. They are very friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. The rooms are spotless clean and very comfortable. Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Deer Brook Inn in Woodstock, VT. We had the suite for 2 nights and with 2 older children, it was perfect. George and David gave us lots of great information about the area that helped us out planning our short visit. The breakfasts were fantastic - even our picky teenagers were impressed! Thanks so much!

Room Tip: The suite is separate from the other rooms upstairs, so there is little to no noise and a door betwe...

Very charming B&B west of Woodstock VT. George and David were very gracious. The breakfast was exceptional. We also enjoyed a delightful dinner at Bentley's and a nightcap at the Woodstock Inn. We were glad to have chosen Deer Brook Inn, found it to be a more personal experience.
