506 On the River Inn

Woodstock, Vermont

The hotel

The genuine Vermont experience, 506 On The River Inn is set in 6 stunning acres, is filled with quaint local artefacts, and serves regional microbrews at its antique bar. No wonder Condé Nast Traveler named it one of ‘The Places to Visit’. Soaking up Ottauquechee River views from your balcony’s rocking chair’s arguably the best pastime here – if you’re not distracted by the indoor pool and hot tub, well-stocked games room, toy-filled playroom, free WiFi, or nearby Woodstock (there’s free parking when you return). But life at the inn starts and ends in its lounge, where Chesterfields set the mood: every morning, its country kitchen’s laden with complimentary treats like French toast slathered in the family farm’s maple syrup; you can pour free tea and coffee all day; and, come evening, the bistro presents refined yet comforting dishes.

The indoor pool and sauna was a great additional feature. Woodstock itself is a very cute village with many opportunities to enjoy outdoor activities. Read less

This is half the price of the Woodstock Inn and has many good features including an: indoor pool that is swimmable, beautiful river side setting, library with a river view, complimentary all you can eat breakfasts, and you cannot hear the road from your room.

It is more of a small hotel than an inn; however the location is excellent and it is close to town without being in town. An enjoyable stay. Read less

I had a very nice time staying at this Inn. This was my third visit. Each time I stay, there is always good service. It is a newer inn and very well maintained. The rooms always very clean and the beds are quite comfortable. They provide high quality linens as well. The rooms have nice views and a balcony overlooking the Ottauquechee River. My favorite part is restaurant and the delicious free hot breakfast! Every morning they served homemade pastries and cinnamon rolls as well as other items like eggs and french toast with maple syrup. The pool and hot tub are always very clean and well maintained as well. My kids can play on the large lawn behind the hotel and in the children's play room and game room too! Read less

We had a nice night at the 506 On the River Inn. The room was very comfortable and had a nice patio. The free breakfast was fabulous and did not lack anything. The staff was friendly and the decor was fun and authentic. Highly recommended.

This was the highlight of our US trip through New England. Great food in the on site restaurant, nice bar and great décor throughout. Woodstock is a beautiful town but we were happy to get back to the hotel and relax after exploring.
