Loved the B & B. Jill and Tony are very welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. Our room was lovely, every detail attended. Furnishing were gorgeous and comfortable. Breakfast had multiple choices and was delicious. Would love to come back.

Property's Favorite Review
The best word I can use to describe the Blue Horse Inn is idyllic. From the Colonial brick facade to the sprawling and well-manicured grounds and seasonal decorations you might think you stepped onto the backlot of a studio filming a show like Gilmore Girls. The Blue Horse in is beautiful; It's warm, cozy, comfortable and every other curled up by the fireplace with a warm cup of coffee adjective you can think of. The proprietors - Jill and Tony - are fantastic. Prior to our arrival I spoke with Jill a number of times as she detailed the differences in the rooms available, reservation options for local restaurants, and options available if we had any dietary restrictions. Jill and Tony went above and beyond in every single way during our stay. Breakfast was phenomenal. The menu changes daily and is seasonally and regionally appropriate. Also, Jill likes to sneak different flavors onto your plate. Suffice it to say, I want jalapeño jam with my eggs every time I eat them! Those of you who scroll to the bottom for a summary, here it is: Book your stay here now. It's fantastic in every respect.

My wife and I spent three nights at the Blue Horse Inn in Woodstock and enjoyed every second. Jill and Tony were wonderful hosts - very helpful and friendly - and have done a fabulous job of restoring the house (dating from 1831) and grounds, paying great attention to detail. The gardens, pool, and yard are beautifully landscaped, calming and inviting, and abut the bank of the Ottauquechee River. Breakfasts were creative and delicious, with daily offerings of sweet, savory, and healthy options, and always accompanied by a yummy baked treat from Jill’s kitchen! We stayed in one of the suites (bedroom, bath, and sitting room) which was very comfortable. The inn is conveniently located within walking distance of shops and restaurants. We highly recommend the BHI to visitors to Woodstock and the surrounding area.

Everything you would want in a New England Inn that has been beautifully restored in keeping with the period of the house. Tony and Jill are delightful hosts, even sharing their story of becoming innkeepers with us. Our room (#7) with fireplace, soaking tub, and king size bed was beautifully appointed and exceeded our expectation. The grounds were stunning and sitting by the river in the Adirondack chairs with a view of the Middle Covered Bridge was sublime. Our breakfast was absolutely delicious and we very much appreciated the gluten free and vegetarian options that were provided. In addition, the support staff was very friendly and respectful. Our next visit will need to be more than one night and hopefully a warmer time of year to enjoy the pool! Thank you for making our celebration special. Darryl and Michele

We have stayed at a number of B & Bs and this is one of the best. The location is ideal as it is in walking distance of the town and all the major restaurants. The place is beautifully decorated, with lovely grounds overlooking the river. The rooms are spacious, with plenty of closet, draw space and seating. Breakfast was really well done with 3 choices each day. Jill and Tony were wonderful hosts and helpful.
