About Sherrry or Bob Belisle

We moved to Woodstock 43 years ago, attracted by its beauty and so many cultural and sporting opportunities in the immediate area. For a semi-rural area, we have all the entertainment a city could offer. We've worked in the hospitality industry here for 40 years and can tell you about everything, even where the best foliage is! We'd be pleased to lend advice on where to eat, what to see and what to do in town. We have children and grandchildren and we've explored it all. However, we'll be very unobtrusive if we sense you so desire. In our pseudo-retirement we also maintain other properties, play tennis and teach piano lessons. Our log home was built from the trees on our property, even the cherry railings.

Sherrry or Bob Belisle purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Sherrry or Bob Belisle chose Woodstock

Our reviews say it all. Woodstock Vermont is considered one of the most beautiful small towns in the US. The village has wonderful shops, a beautiful library, art galleries, several covered bridges, many highly-rated restaurants and a National Park. Woodstock is also “wireless” – a wifi signal covers much of the area. Woodstock is centrally located in Vermont – close to Dartmouth College, Vermont Law School and the Green Mountain Horse Association. Local ski areas include Suicide Six (10 minutes), Killington (25 minutes), Pico (25 minutes), Ascutney (30 minutes) and Okemo (35 minutes). In season, we also have some of the best cross-country/nordic skiing within the local resort and National Park. We love it here. We lived next door for 40 years and completed this new home in 2009, with the idea of renting out the apartment for others to enjoy. And we specifically had our urban-living children advise us on the layout, appliances and amenities. It is a wonderful escape.

What makes this apartment unique

Walk to village, full kitchen and laundry. Keurig.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for such a wonderful stay. We truly enjoyed the cabin and Woodstock and look forward to our return. Your advice to ski Saturday saved us - I don't think we would have made it out there yesterday when the temperature dropped!

Thanks again.

Great modern apartment close to town

  • 5 of 5

Bob was very accommodating and helpful whenever we had a question. The apartment is above his Garage and it is fully modernized and stocked. We had a small heat issue, but once Bob was made aware the issue was resolved promptly. The hardwood floors are beautiful and the apartment has plenty of space. Bob also provided all amenities like towels, soap, laundry detergent, etc.

The only things I would advise are: The TV is a bit small for the space, so if you plan on using it at all be aware (you shouldn't, Bentley's down the street should be your spot for all sports games, Bob recommended and it was great). I would also advise putting a twin bed under the window in the bedroom to add some liveability, but that's just my opinion. Oh! The shower is in the dark, a light above would help. Just a small nitpick item. Otherwise, we had a great time and would come back.

Wonderful early winter getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for my wife and I and are 8 month old. It was private, quiet, and a great location - not in town, but a minute drive away. Bob and Sherry were so wonderful, providing us with a baby gate, setting up a high chair for us, and going out to the library to get museum passes for us. It was a beautiful apartment that we hope we can visit again!

Well we had another awesome stay in Woodstock at the log home apartment. Bob and Sherry, you don't need another great review because you deserve a 10 star rating if we could give one! The best stay, the most comfortable bed, full amenities, amazing hospitality, easy access to everything...there are just so many positives that come with staying here! Bob & Sherry are simply the best! Wish we could stay more often!!!
