The Canterbury House is located in the picturesque Village of Woodstock, Vermont. Inspired by the impressive concentration and continuity of late 18th and 19th century architecture, National Geographic Magazine called the village one of the most beautiful in America.
The Canterbury House is a 1880 Victorian townhouse that has been completely restored to offer modern comfort combined with historic authenticity. Standards for historic preservation have been followed in renovating the Canterbury House for use as a tourist home. The house is furnished with Period antiques, but is not a museum set piece. It is our intention that it reflect fine craftsmanship and beautiful surroundings combined with the warmth and hospitality reminiscent of a family homecoming.
A leisurely drive in the surrounding area reveals the renowned quiet beauty of Vermont. The local Billings Farm Museum and the nearby Coolidge Homestead offer an opportunity to learn about the old-fashioned methods for making the farm products Vermont is famous for. And for those who like to hike, the Appalachian and Long Trails are easily accessible.
Active pastimes abound in the Woodstock area both summer and winter. For the warm weather enthusiast there is the Woodstock Country Club with it's Robert Trent Jones designed golf course open for public play. For those who enjoy chasing tennis balls, various court surfaces are available. Game fish abound in Vermont's lakes and streams. A resurgence of the Atlantic Salmon is underway in the nearby Connecticut River, and rainbow trout populate virtually all local waters. For those who prefer the winter, not only do we have cross country skiing, but also some great downhill slopes including, Suicide Six, Killington, Pico, Mt. Ascutney, Okemo and Mountain Meadows just to name a few -- offering the best Alpine and Nordic skiing in the eastern United States.
We offer you a beautifully decorated room and home, a hearty full breakfast at our common table, hospitality usually extended only to "kith and kin" and the many pleasures of Woodstock.
