Real Food Real Deals, Healthy food on a budget

We were honored to host food blogger Annemaire Rossi of Real Food Real Deals, Healthy food on a budget. She stayed with us one night in our two bedroom suite and wrote this in her Blog about staying with us:

Woodstock has several nice options for accommodations. If you’re on a budget, Sleep Woodstock is a fantastic place to stay. This classic 1960’s roadside motel features modern amenities like Keurig coffee makers and free WiFi. It’s open year-round, so it’s a good location for ski season, summer travel, or leaf-peeping in the fall. We stayed in their large 2 bedroom suite, and the beds were so comfortable. They lived up to the rave reviews I had read on Trip Advisor. I got the best night sleep of our weeklong trip at Sleep Woodstock.”

Thank You Annemarie! We’re happy you slept so well.
