Cosy Inn with nothing but a general store next door.
The dining room is cozy, but beware they dont tell you it only opens for 3 days of the week so you have to go elsewhere to eat. Also they literally kick you out the dining room at 9pm as the rooms above hear the noise through the old wooden floor beams. There is a big TV in the dining room showing sports. Food is great with a new 2012 menu, and not that pricey.
The chef for breakfast is a no-nonsense darling and a mine of local info, especially for skiing. Altho the breakfast selection is a bit bland and repetitive (fruit slices & bananas, berry yogurt, mini serial boxes every day, with some cake slices) she will try make you something you like if she has the ingredients and the front desk dont want to charge extra for "non-standard" ingredients (like lox). Her egg omlettes are great!
There is a Keurig manchine in the lobby for all-day coffee serving decaf, early grey and vermont blend coffe with cups for take-out.
Nearest town for dining is a 10min drive from South Woodstock to Woodstock. Watch the traffic signs as you go into Woodstock, as the local cop LOVES to catch unsuspecting tourists - lots of free $$$ for the town as the speed limit suddenly drops from 50 to 25mph as you near Woodstock with one small sign to say so. Not cool, Chief Of Woodstock, especially since there is very little snow around and eateries and facilities are empty and you need the business.
The rooms with fireplaces are large and detached from the main Inn and are newer, so if you dont want to walk in the cold for breakfast, rather stay in the main inn. You have to ask for the wood and fire-starter to be replenished. The room has a small TV with VT and Boston channels. Lighting is dim, altho there are two bedside lamps. The bathrooms have light heaters and a hairdryer. You can park outside your room, motel style.
The odd thing is that they dont automatically change the bedding even though the room is cleaned every day. They need to fix that! CHANGE THE BEDDING!
There are some helpful women at the front desk, who will print out travel directions for you. They dont know much about skiing though and whats best for daily skiing, so dont even bother asking.
Shop around for room pricing: the people checking out before us paid $90 more than us for the same room! Because they are in a non-snow slump, it looks like prices are all over the place and you can get great deals. DONT book directly with the Inn as their prices seem to be the highest than online booking sites.
If you want a fireplace, get the rooms in the parking area segment of the Inn.
