 About the Innkeepers

We met as teenagers in the 80s, then went our separate ways. Much later our paths crossed again and we were still the perfect match. Newlyweds in our 50s, we came to realize that we wanted to create something together, something meaningful and people-oriented. We also wanted to live in a beautiful area with a welcoming community, and be able to ski as much as possible. Vermont, and Woodstock in particular, beckoned.

We became owners of the Woodstocker B&B in March of 2018. The innkeeping life has kept its promises and is more fulfilling than we anticipated! What we like most about it? Giving people a respite from their daily lives, a haven to recharge and reconnect.

We look forward to welcoming you at The Woodstocker!
