The Lincoln Inn, Woodstock, VT

Guest Author - Brenda Potter Reynolds

When I pulled up to the Lincoln Inn, I was hot, tired and stressed. It was an unusually warm day for Vermont, and I'd been on the road for several hours. I didn't want to even move, much less get out of the air-conditioned vehicle.

But Cindy at the Lincoln Inn was friendly and refreshing. After I checked in, she asked if I'd like to go sit by the Ottauquechee River, which runs through the backyard. Boy, would I!

Ahh! It was so relaxing. I sat there for quite awhile - unwinding and de-stressing. Cindy even brought me out a cold drink.

It was great beginning to my stay at the Lincoln Inn. From my cozy room to dining at the Mangowood, the inn's restaurant, my visit was delightful.

Before dinner, I had mentioned to owner/chef Teresa Tan that I was craving a steak. To my surprise, she made me one, (a delicious filet mignon) even though it wasn't on the menu at the time. Served with seasoned rice, it was scrumptious.

I spent the night in the Passion Room. I loved the Queens-sized bed with brass headboard, overstuffed chair, and colorful curtains and bedspread. My room also had a view of the Lincoln Covered Bridge.

I had a great time visiting with Cindy, Teresa and owner/innkeeper Amy Martsolf. I hated to leave the next day, but I had to go into Woodstock. After a yummy breakfast of peach pancakes, I reluctantly said good-bye to my new friends and headed out.

I enjoyed exploring the area the Marsh-Billings Farm & Museum, Quechee Gorge, Simon Pearce Glass. I even dined at a restaurant in Woodstock. I wont mention its name because, unfortunately, it didn't even come close to the meal I had enjoyed at Mangowood.

The Lincoln Inn is a restored farmhouse approximately two miles from Woodstock. When you enter the inn, there's an office to the left, and on the right, a sunny dining room where Teresa serves fabulous breakfasts. Beyond that is the dining room for the Mangowood, and out front, a tavern with a wooden bar and fireplace.

There's also a library, a warm room with a comfy couch and shelves and shelves of books. The inn's six rooms are located upstairs.

My visit to the Lincoln Inn was both relaxing and fun. As much as I loved my room and dining at Mangowood, Id have to say the highlight of my stay was the company of the three lively and lovely woman of the inn - Cindy, Teresa and Amy.

More Info

You don't have to stay at the inn to dine at Mangowood, and if you're in the area, I highly recommend it. The inn also hosts weddings, rehearsal dinners, and private parties.

The Lincoln Inn is open year-round except for the month of April.
