Carriage House - 250 Private Acres; Views, Gardens, Skiing, Farm, Serenity
average rating of 4.9166665 based on 12 reviews

Peace and serenity on a lovely country road.

  • 5 of 5

This is an impeccable and cozy cottage on a quiet stretch of country road, but is is not too remote, so you never feel isolated. Well furnished with all the necessities, the cottage affords magnificent views of the hills and farms, and the place literally reverberates with bird song. Many days we didn't feel the urge to go and see everything in the area. That's how strong this house tugs on you to just relax and enjoy the natural wonders right out your back door.

Our experience was exceptional.

  • 5 of 5

The listing description accurately portrayed the location, layout and various amenities associated with the Carriage House. It is located on a well maintained country road just north of Woodstock and close to the Billings Farm Museum. The property is gorgeous and offers beautiful views of the surrounding meadows, forested ridges, and mountains beyond from the many windows as well as the attached deck. The house was clean, neat, and well maintained. The owner is polite, informative, and a pleasure to do business with. For those visitors who enjoy nature and the outdoors, the property offers opportunities for hiking, bird-watching, wildflower viewing, nature/landscape photography, sketching, or painting. We found it the perfect home while attending a four day class at the King Arthur Flour Baking School; the commute to the school was beautiful. We prepared and ate most of our meals in the Carriage House, but also enjoyed a couple of local restaurants and found our meals were very good. The shops in Woodstock are unique, we would highly recommend the Vermont Flannel Co. for practical souvenirs. The local library is well worth a visit, it is beautiful and you can print your fishing license there! We brought home cheese and local maple syrup to share with family and friends from nearby Sugarbush Farm. We will be back and highly recommend the Carriage House to anyone wanting to visit Vermont.

So Nice!!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property in a great location. Views of the surrounding hills and only 2 miles from town. We took our 2 year old. Child friendly inside and not on a busy road. We had a great time and look forward to renting again. Owner was kind and accommodating. Thank you for such a wonderful stay!

Great getaway spot

  • 4 of 5

Lovely spot! What a view from the deck!

The place was comfortable and immaculately clean and Margarete is a welcoming hostess. It is very enjoyable to walk around the area.

Woodstock is a delightful town with charming stores and good restaurants.

We had a fabulous time. I recommend this cottage!

A Treasure

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House was impeccable and Margarete is just wonderful and so very helpful. The property was a wonderful place to explore even in the snow for this Floridian family. The Carriage House was a home away from home type of feel, very comfortable, had everything you needed and the view is stunning. This is a true treasure, a great find.

Woodstock and the surrounding areas are just beautiful. We enjoyed shopping at the Farmers Market and taking a few day trips. The covered bridges in the area are just stunning.

We can't wait to return. We loved and enjoyed our holidays in Woodstock and at the Carriage House.

Wonderful in every way

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Margarete's Carriage House in Woodstock ,Vermont.

The location was perfect with amazing views .We could walk into town and Billings Farm.

Margarete and Reilly(a lovely Chocolate Lab)were delightful and made us feel at home .She suggested some great restaurants. Our favorites were Prince and Pauper and Simon Pearce.

Her gardens are beautiful and Neighbors are wonderful.

This is truly a special spot. We can not wait to come back to this lovely part of the world.
