Thankfully, our historic bed and breakfast emerged from Hurricane Irene with no damage. The roads near us are improving every day and getting here is easy. The excellent restaurants closest (1, 5, 11 miles) to us plus many others in Woodstock also have no damage. Some major roads in Vermont have closed sections, but in all cases "You can get there from here" even if you have to take the road less traveled. The smaller roads with smaller problems have been quicker to fix.
A winding country road, rolling meadows, an old mill stream, an
Yes, it's a quiet neighborhood.
Bailey's Mills welcomes our guests to a beautiful historic home. Whether you ski (at Okemo, Killington or Ascutney) or visit area attractions or seek a weekend away from your busy life, you will find a comforting peacefulness here.
Since we are a Green Hotel in The Green Mountain State a Bailey's Mills Gift
Certificate is a great Green Gift Idea. You will be giving a truly all
American experience, no part of which has been made in China.
Bailey's Mills is full of interesting features that delight the eye and
pique curiosity about the history embodied here. Innkeeper, Barbara Thaeder has the enviable task of welcoming guests to a circa 1820 home where time has been kind. A genial ambiance emmanates from
pleasingly proportioned rooms where decorating details honor the
historic spirit and comfortable furnishings invite lingering a while to take it all in.
The common rooms include a fireplaced library and a garden room. The library
has over 3,000 volumes plus board games and puzzles and windows that view
into the garden room with its myriad hanging plants. Sofas, rockers, easy
chairs and tables encourage you to gather for games, snacks, afternoon
tea or your own evening libations.
In addition to enjoying the house itself you will want to explore our extensive grounds and our rural neighborhood. Whether you prefer long country walks or a drive along unspoiled back roads, there are plenty of choices.
Warm weather makes the porch especially inviting where rocking chairs, a sofa and a hammock on the upper level facilitate the favorite pastimes of star gazing, reading, napping, listening to the stream. Cold weather enthusiasts ski at Ascutney, Okemo or Killington or cross country or snowshoe at several nearby centers. They return to warm up at the library's hearth.
