Private, yet right in town. Our newly refurbished guest house is perfect peace.
Lisa is a professor of literature of Salem State Univeristy in Salem, MA and Merritt is the owner of Senior Helpers - Boston North, a senior in-home care company. Once the kids left home, we moved from the suburbs into Boston. That's the second best decision we ever made on where to live. The first? Without question buying a home in Vermont. The people, the scenery. Its all fantastic and now its home. The minute we cross the border into Vermont, we feel the weight of the world lift from our shoulders. Vermont certainly works its magic on us. Our two kids (well, no kids really at 23 and 29, but to us...), their significant others, family, friends, all come to visit whenever possible. We love hosting and love sharing Vermont with those whom we love. And did we mention Satchel, our St. Bernadoodle? He's outstanding and Vermont works pretty well on him, too.
Owner purchased this House in 2018
Why Owner chose South Woodstock
We fell in love with this property the minute we saw it. Fifty six acres was more than we ever thought we wanted, but now maybe they are not enough. The main house is an architectural WOW! Its not "Vermonty" at all - unlike anything else we saw. Its modern with over 200 windows and angles all over the place. Its one of a kind. But it was standing on deck of the guest house, Aquene, when we said "this is it, this will be home."
What makes this House unique
Fifty six acres with groomed trails on the property. Easy access to South Woodstock stores; Green Mountain Horse Association; Village of Woodstock; and Woodstock Country Club. Completely refurbished in 2018. Hostess and Host who will do whatever is necessary to make your stay fantastic.

Wassail Weekend Getaway
Beautiful home with unexpected amenities! Merritt and Lisa were are wonderful to work with and we will definitely be back ! We had an amazing weekend and highly recommend this property.
Wow. Such nice words. We loved having you visit and look forward to the next time. Thanks again.
This place was perfect for a fall weekend. Just outside of downtown Woodstock makes it perfect location to be secluded but also close by. Really great house that has everything you need and all the windows and porch make seeing the leaves enjoyable right from inside the house.
Thanks so much for the kind words. I am so glad you guys had fun and I hope we see you again soon. (Winter is kind of amazing, too!)
We loved this place.It was clean and a home away from home.The weather was perfect for the Fall Foliage. We hope to come back next year and stay longer.
Thanks so much for the kind words. Lisa and I are so glad you were able to celebrate your anniversary with us. Hope to see you again soon. (Winter is pretty spectacular!)
Our stay was fabulous! The house was beautiful and clean with every amenity plus some. We definitely will look to stay again our next time in Woodstock.
So glad to hear you enjoyed the house. Looking forward to the next time you come to the Green Mountain Horse Assoc. so we can host you again. All the best.
Great stay at Aquene!
Merritt and Lisa's property was fantastic! The house had everything we needed, was very comfortable, and the location was great. Really a very relaxing place to be. We will definitely be back!
Webster, Thank you so much for your kind review. We loved hosting you and who knows maybe next time (and we do hope there will be a next time!) we will actually get a chance to meet in person.
Wonderful stay at this fantastic property! Very well appointed and very comfortable. quiet and private location yet just a few minutes walk to the S Woodstock store and Kedron Valley Inn. The pullout couch in the private lower level worked beautifully for our son. Great kitchen. The owners really go out go their way to ensure your stay is comfortable and all your needs are met. Great hospitality touches that we've rarely experienced in other VRBO's. Highly recommended!
Thank you so much for your kind words. Really nice. We loved having you and look forward to your return to Woodstock soon.
