About Woodstock Inn, Station & Brewery: A History
By the early 1980s, the century-old home on Main Street in North Woodstock had seen better days. Deserted for 17 years, its future depended on the enthusiasm of new owners, who could see not what it was, but what it could be.
On Christmas Day 1982, that house became home to the Woodstock Inn, which then boasted four guest rooms, a 25-seat restaurant and a room for the owners up in the attic.
In the 30 years since that day, the Woodstock Inn has become the social center for locals and a home-away-from-home for visitors to return to year after year. They are drawn to the fine food, warm hospitality and even a sense of belonging each time they come back to visit the western White Mountains, making true our slogan, ‘Great Taste from a Special Place.’
Perhaps because the original house had such a long history on Main Street, the Inn has always had an affinity for local history. That’s why, two years after it opened, the owners reached over to Lincoln to save a bit of that town’s past, its old train station.
Sawed in half and carefully, if not memorably, transported a few miles away to the Inn, that station became the Woodstock Station, allowing the expansion of the kitchen and the dining room, and, to their relief, larger owners’ quarters.
