Reviewed 28 October 2014

Stayed in "Summer Kitchen" with my 5 year old for a "mommy/daughter trip." Owners were welcoming, accommodated my "no meat" request, and were so kind to my daughter. Fluffiest pancakes I have ever had. Willa even gave me a copy of the recipe. Loved the fireplace and closet in the room. Plus it had numerous electrical outlets for recharging. Walking distance to dinner.

Stayed: October 2014, travelled with family

Lovely owners/hosts. Very comfortable ambiance. Terrific breakfast, although a little on the sweet side for we Brits (am sure Dixie and Willa would have offered alternatives had we stayed more than one night and asked). Only slight downside and reason for 'very good' and not 'excellent' review was that the bed was very high off the ground and very springy, almost like a waterbed, so not the most comfortable night's sleep. This is almost verging on the pedantic, but if a comfortable bed is a vital consideration, check it out when you book.
Otherwise would certainly return if in the area.

Room Tip: Check out the beds. Our was the room on the side close to reception area, but we had no issues with...

Spent four nights with Dixie and Willa. They are great conversationalists, helped us plan our activities, the 4 breakfasts were as good and varied as what we had at any B&B, made reservations for us, etc. Nine rooms but they are segregated throughout the house and very private. We will be back. Everything in Woodstock within walking distance including Billings Farm and Rockefeller Historic Park.

We have stayed at this Inn before but on our return to the States couldn't miss another visit. Willa & Dixie are extremely friendly & welcoming hosts, nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts are magnificent!!! Easy walk into the town, which has many nice shops & restaurants. Close by is Quechee Gorge - a place not to be missed. Lots to do locally so a fantastic place to stay.

Room Tip: This Inn is on a main road, so there's really no escaping a bit of traffic noise - however that...

I booked our stay into the Charleston House after reading all the reviews about Bed and Breakfasts in Woodstock, Vermont. While the Charleston House was not ranked in the top 5, what was said about this B&B and its hosts seemed compatible with what I was looking for – friendly hosts, comfortable rooms and walking distance to town. It turned out to be all that the best reviews said and more. Because it was off season and all the rooms were not booked, Willa and Dixi, our hosts, offered us an upgrade which we gladly took although the room we had booked looked lovely as well. We ended up staying in the B&B room which is a large room with a private balcony, a fireplace, and a huge bathroom. Also one of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in. The warm and inviting room was capped off with a delightful breakfast. The food was excellent but it was the conversation with the hosts that made our stay even more memorable. Because we are relatively late risers, we chose the latter of the two seating’s (9:30) and everyone else had already had their breakfast at the 8:30 seating. I thought we would be alone without meeting any new people but I was so wrong. Willa sat with us throughout the entire meal and we had a lively conversation. I felt as if I had been talking to her forever and she was so much fun. Dixi occasionally chimed in with a clever insight even while he was busy refilling our coffee and checking other guests out. We have stayed in many B&B’s and although we have enjoyed most of them, we have always said that there are so many in any given area that we probably would not stay in one twice. Not so in this case, we both agreed that when we return to Woodstock, we will head straight for the Charleston House.

Room Tip: We looked at several rooms in the Charleston House and all are lovely. However, the B&B room whe...
