Weekend at Woodbury House

September 16, 2014

From owner to facility to view, our weekend could not have been better. Jon was flexible, kind, and a pleasure to work with. The house is beautiful, welcoming, surrounded by beauty. Comfy beds, fully equipped kitchen are features that I would return to!

Woodbury House was great

August 29, 2014

My two brothers and sisters-in-law (from Portland, OR, and northern Virginia) stayed for five days to be close to a family wedding, and two more family members joined them for two nights. All were very happy with the house and their stay there -- it is clean, new, well furnished, and in a spectacular site. As they left they were talking about returning.

A return visit to Woodbury House - wonderful place to stay as usual & very convenient for a family gathering as we have family members who literally live right around the corner. We had a lovely week weatherwise and enjoyed the beautiful pond & garden views. Wonderfully equipped kitchen so cooking can all be done at home thus saving treks to eat out. A great place to stay - very good karma!

Peaceful, beautiful retreat

September 4, 2013

The Woodbury House is a true gem--I recently spent a month there after having a baby, and couldn't have dreamed up a more relaxing way to spend my maternity leave! From hot tubbing under the stars to picking fresh blueberries every morning, the whole experience was magical. The Woodbury House's owners are also fastidious caretakers--the house was immaculate when we arrived, and when an unexpected (and beautiful!) thunderstorm knocked out power in pretty much all of central Vermont, Jon was there immediately setting up a backup generator. A++ all around.
