When thinking of quintessential New England inns, the Inn at Woodstock Hill in Woodstock, Conn., comes to mind. This historic inn not only offers a sense of relaxation and escape inside, but also has the perfect rural New England location surrounded by rolling hills in a quiet northeastern Connecticut town filled with big old homes and a beautiful town common.
Sometimes, inns like this are filled with pretense and inflated self-worth, but not the Inn at Woodstock Hill. The people are so nice here and the way they run this 1816-built Federal/Georgian style mansion feels more steeped in old-fashioned customer service rather than focusing on hyped marketing. In other words, they let the inn do the talking, instead of the staff talking a good game.
