Destination guide

Welcome to Woodstock - no, not that Woodstock

Any town whose main highlight is a small pond is bound to be charming. That’s the story in Woodstock, a delightful, rural area that shares a name with the famous concert site. This Woodstock, however, is known as the home of the very last crank phone in existence. It’s a dream for anyone who loves and appreciates all things—and we do mean all things—winter. Booking a Woodstock vacation rental is likely to put you in the center of a snow mound, a ski slope, or a snowmobile trail. If you arrive in the summer, you can languish pond-side and soak up the sunshine.

Things to do

Home of the world's last hand-crank phone

Add this to your quirky attractions file. Those who appreciate the unusual may book a Woodstock vacation rental solely to see the sculpture of the 14-foot candlestick phone located in Remembrance Park. It was designed in honor of the old-school hand-crank phone system, which locals used until 1983. You can also delve into the area’s history thanks to the Woodstock Historical Society, which runs the Woodstock Museum. It’s filled with everything from ancient signs and vintage bicycles to old town photographs and artifacts.

Activities

Bargaining for a good time in Woodstock

Nearby Bethel, about 15 minutes away by car, is by far the best option for most social activities. Shoppers can indulge their inner bargain hunter with a visit to the area’s unique boutiques, while avid gamers can head straight for Oxford Casino to try their hand at one of over 850 slot machines. For those who booked a Woodstock vacation rental hoping to get in some physical activity, get out on the water—there’s plenty to experience on quaint Bryant Pond, from canoeing to fishing.

Weather

And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

There are definitely 4 distinctive seasons in Woodstock. The predominant 1 is winter, only because snow falls with such ferocity every year. The city’s average snowfall is a whopping 76 inches. That said, you can enjoy your Woodstock vacation rental on a sunny day, too—it shines year round, and summer offers pleasant highs of at least 77 degrees. Those temperatures drop quickly in late September, providing that typical early evening breeze. Springtime is a considerably rainy period, with averages of around 44 inches.

Natural features

In the north, the black bear beckons

Bryant Pond is the sparkling gem of Woodstock. It feeds into the Little Androscoggin River, but the beauty of this sweet spot is in its quiet tranquility. At the northwest end of town is the aptly named North Pond, where breathtaking views of Moody Mountain can be seen for miles. There are other mountains in Woodstock, too—smaller, humbler hills like Mollyockett, Whitman, and Spruce. Part of the county is home to Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge, about an hour north, where an intriguing mix of marine life and wildlife reside. Keep your eyes open for those black bears.
