Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Woodstock - Sterling Cottage

Lovely 1BR 1BA House with Complete Kitchen

Sterling Cottage is a charming and cozy little house situated on seven acres of privately owned property by the Sterling Family. There are picturesque views from our hills, a wooded area for hiking, and a campfire overlooking our private pond which we use for swimming in the summer and skating during the winter months (weather permitting).

The cottage is located on Route 4, two miles east of the Village Green in Woodstock, VT. Just a short five-minute ride you will be in the Village of Woodstock where you will find restaurants, art galleries, historical museums, and shops. Hiking Mount Tom is just a short walk from the village. From the village Billings Farm & Museum and the Green Mountain Horse Association are just minutes away. If you are here for some great skiing, there is the Woodstock Ski Touring Center for cross-country skiers and for downhill there is our own local ski area Suicide Six. Killington Ski Area is just 30 minutes away from the cottages driveway.

The Woodstock Health and Fitness Center is also open to the public. It includes an indoor pool, yearlong tennis and squash courts, and weight training equipment. The cottage is centrally located within 20 minutes of the Upper Valley shopping plazas and restaurants, 30 minutes to Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH. Sterling Cottage is a member of the Woodstock Area Chamber of Commerce.

A perfect place for a few days of relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was. From the fresh baked blueberry muffins to the fresh eggs in the fridge, it was perfect! We had a wonderful time hiking around Woodstock and a few great meals from the butcher shop downtown. If you are looking for a place to stay in this area of Vermont, stay here!

Sterling Cottage is a great internet discovery!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 3 nights spent at Sterling Cottage, and it certainly surpassed our expectations!! What a great place to stay with every amenity one could ever want or need. And what a nice surprise to find delicious blueberry muffins, a selection of Vermont cheeses,gourmet crackers, bottles of wine and sparkling cider, and several other items in the fridge, not least of which were the Sterling chickens' fresh eggs! We could not have been more pleased, and do hope we might return. Woodstock has so much to offer, and we didn't have time to explore as much as we wanted to. It is just a short drive to the Ben & Jerry's ice cream factory, the King Arthur Flour bakery and store, and the (Rockingham) Vermont Country Store, and we enjoyed all of these places on our short visit. The cottage is darling, the grounds are gorgeous, and we, and our greyhound, Sophie, loved it all!

Quiet & Cozy

  • 4 of 5

We spent 4 nights and enjoyed our stay. The Sterling's pay great attention to detail and the furnishings were comfortable. We appreciated that they provided us with a few thoughtful starter items in the fridge. We felt at home with our two children aged 8 and 15 and liked the grounds of the Sterling property which were simple but very pretty. The living space was tight but cozy with all amenities; washer / dryer, pots and pans, coffee, and crockery of nice quality and we appreciated the several publications on Vermont and Woodstock. The only minor critique is the indoor arrangement for eating - a bar type set up versus a more proper table. A long time family in the town, one definitely gains some local insight from staying here. Thank you Sterlings.

We had an amazing week in a wonderfully adorable cottage on 7 majestic acres with owners who could not have been more accommodating. There wasn't one minute we didn't love. The cottage was perfect, immaculate and with every amenity you could ever need. Jon and Tamara greeted us with Vermont treats in the fridge when we arrived and home made blueberry muffins which were amazing. We loved the owners, the setting, the cabin and our spectacular escape from reality. It could not have been better!! Paradise found! Highly recommend!!

wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

This secluded hideaway is private and yet close to the many area attractions. Jon and Tamara and extended family are wonderful hosts and take care of your every need. We received a warm welcome and a fridge full of goodies - cheese, crackers, juice, cream and coffee. The blueberry muffins were a delight and I already miss them. There were also condiments and spices in the cupboard. There is every kitchen tool you could possibly need and more as well as a lovely full set of dishes.

The cottage is compact but adequate and the fireplace was perfect for chilly mornings. We were grateful for the A/C on what proved to be an unseasonable hot spell our first week.

Woodstock and area is chock full of interesting activities to suit every taste. Don't miss Montshire Museum - it is a MUST!

Kudos- thanks to you we had one of our best vacations ever.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Sterling Cottage is amazing. This was actually our second visit, and we enjoyed it even more. The property is beautiful, and you could not ask for better hosts. The areas of Woodstock and Quechee are both fantastic, and continue to get better. Thank you for everything, and we are looking forward to our third visit.
