About Owner

My husband and I purchased the Miller's House in 2007. It is directly across the street from our Bed and Breakfast, The Grist Mill House. I have lived in Woodstock for over 40 years and realized the historical value of this beautiful brick cape with attached carriage shed. We have had fun restoring the house with antique detail and many modern amenities. We have traveled all over the world and enjoying staying in beautiful homes elsewhere. We felt like we knew what people wanted and enjoyed in a short term rental and kept that in mind as we were restoring the Miller's House. We have enjoyed the Woodstock area for many years and know so many 'out of the way' special places for hiking, walking, kayaking and canoeing, photography opportunities, swimming, snowshoeing and cross country skiing. We are more than willing to recommend fine dining experiences, museums, shopping or whatever your passion is. We both have worked in education fields, K-12, and in the corporate world. Peter worked for BMW North America (motorcycle division) and I was principal of 2 elementary schools spanning 12 years. We now run our Bed and Breakfast and our short term rental. We love sharing our amazing spaces with people from all over the world!

Why Owner chose South Woodstock

The Miller's House is a very special place, historical, peaceful, tucked into a very special VT village. It is within walking distance to fine country dining, a very special country store with amazing breakfasts and lunches, a few minutes drive to downtown Woodstock and ski areas. We own 3 properties adjacent to the Millers House with access to the Kedron Brook, hiking trails and very close to the Green Mountain Horse Association and pond swimming.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We AGAIN enjoyed our stay! What a great place to spend with friends, skiing, eating special dinners infront of the fireplace, falling asleep after a hard day on the mountain and awaking to enjoy yet another day! Thank you, thank you, thank you for such great memories! This place will always be home to clean, so cozy, so perfect!

Charming, classy, cozy and clean!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked 2 nights in The Miller House in October 2017 to enjoy the foliage and the quaint town of Woodstock. This house exudes warmth and charm with high ceilings. Former kitchen, large dining room and a huge living room with a piano. Everything was perfect, including a very comfortable fluffy bed and pillows. The location is also perfect, close to town yet away from the crowds. Carole and Peter are warm and friendly, I only wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back.
