Woodstock, Vermont has been named the “Prettiest Small Town in America” by the Ladies Home Journal. The pace of life is “slow enough to savor, but stimulating enough to enjoy.”
The town, which includes the villages of Woodstock, South Woodstock, and Taftsville, has a population of about 3400. The Industrial Revolution helped Woodstock grow prosperous, which it remains today. For over 200 years, the focal point of Woodstock Village has been the famed site of what is now known as the Woodstock Inn. The original structure was built in 1792, and in 1874 tourists were inspired to flock to the area via "The Woodstock Car" - a rail car that departed nightly from Grand Central Station in New York City. In 1969, after being approached to renovate the then existing structure, Laurance S. Rockefeller (grandson of John D. Rockefeller) deemed the old inn unsalvageable and replaced it with the current, stately structure.
Tourism is a main source of income for the town today. Many of Woodstock’s year round residents are small business owners, closely involved in the community. Year-round residents also work at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and Dartmouth College in close-by Hanover, NH. Woodstock Elementary, Middle, and High School provide an excellent education. Woodstock is also within close proximity of some of the best skiing in the Northeast, including Killington, Pico, Okemo, and Ascutney Mountains.
The local ski mountain, Suicide Six, which is owned by the Woodstock Inn, is a wonderful mountain for beginner skiers as well as home of the S6 ski team, in which many of the local children are involved. Woodstock is just a 3 hour drive from Boston and is 250 miles from New York City. It is easily accessible by Rutland and Lebanon NH airports. Woodstock also has free community wi-fi internet service that covers most of the village, dubbed “Wireless Woodstock.”
"Working with Flat Fee was terrific. We listed our condo with them in a very competitive market, and in ten days we had three competing full-price-plus offers. Flat Fee provided us with listing and pricing guidance, arranged for a listing video, and as we left Vermont before our closing, sheparded us through all of the final details leading to settlement.
