The Inn at Woodstock Hill Offers the Quintessential New England Travel Getaway

Article by Eric H.

All this talk about bail-outs and recessions just makes one want to bail out to a peaceful travel destination to get away from all this ugly, elitist-driven financial madness. We couldn't think of a better place to temporarily escape than the Inn at Woodstock Hill in Woodstock, Conn.

The tell-tale sign that The Inn at Woodstock Hill is an ideal getaway is that it's located in the northeast area of Connecticut called the "Quiet Corner." The Inn at Woodstock Hill delivers on this appealing moniker, majestically residing in its 1816 Federal/Georgian presence on a hill surrounded by higher rolling hills, some of the prettiest large old Colonial homes you'll ever see, and a peaceful aura that simply forces relaxation. Woodstock is indeed a worthy extension of the Inn at Woodstock Hill (or, vice versa). Void of any unctuous strip malls, hostile commuting traffic, or other "Anytown USA" trappings (why do we call this civilization?), Woodstock's idea of rapid development is watching the apples grow in the fall, accumulating pure white snow piling up in the winter, multiplying plant life in the spring, and more chances to walk the "real New England" in the summer.

The Inn at Woodstock Hill is a visual delight. Just looking at the grand interior archways, quaint sitting rooms and elegant wide, red-carpeted staircase further validates the need to be in a place like The Inn at Woodstock Hill -- more reminiscent of a gentler previous era than the socially, economically and politically volatile times we live in.

The real clincher that you've landed in an instantly-beloved destination centers around the 22 individually-unique guest rooms. Some features you might find -- depending upon the room you get -- are high ceilings, fireplaces, big windows overlooking beautiful country scenery, and antique furnishings. The combination of old-world features sure feels great, more fulfilling than society's love affair with cell phones, palm pilots, and other socially distracting gadgets. Here, at the Inn at Woodstock Hill, you learn how to connect with the real world where simplicity, conversation, and scenic splendor rule the day.

The Inn at Woodstock Hill also features wonderful dining -- a Sunday brunch, lunch (Tues.-Fri. 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and dinners (Mon. - Sat., 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.; Sun. 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.) with a creative flair. Some amazing dishes include slowly-roasted Long Island duck a L'Orange, Filet Mignon "Madagascar" with roasted peppers, garlic cloves and bodelaise and Thai stir-friend shrimp and sea scallops. The restaurant also has some fresh mized greens, salad, a terrific seafood chowder, and an extensive wine list. With dim lighting, fireplaces, and attention service within historical rooms, this dining experience just adds to the romantic yet casual, friendly experience at the Inn at Woodstock Hill.

The lavation of stresses is quite easy to accomplish for even the most intense workaholic, here at the Inn at Woodstock Hill. After all, there's really no better "relaxation remedy" than to slow down, breathe in fresh air, and enjoy the countryside. The Inn at Woodstock Hill will bail you out from our modern-day ways of life, each and everytime. It's a bail-out travel plan, in the best sense!
