Delivering sincere hospitality since 1963, The Shire is part of the fabric of Woodstock and its patchwork quilt of local culture. Built in 1963 as a 12-room motel, The Shire has been cared for, improved and expanded over time by subsequent owners. Saltaire Properties purchased the hotel in 2015. This year, we have lovingly enhanced this celebrated property with discreetly improved guestroom amenities, a rededication to local artwork and a commitment to warm and friendly service.
By the way, in case you didn’t know, our name refers to the fact that Woodstock is the shire town, or county seat, of Windsor County. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
Woodstock Village is pure New England with its natural beauty, parkland and trails, historical buildings, and plenty of shops, galleries and eateries to make a walk through the village worth hours of enjoyment. In the surrounding area you will find farmers’ markets, museums, covered bridges, hiking, skiing, hidden Vermont hamlets, and much more.
At The Shire, we believe every trip to Woodstock is special! But to make your stay even better, we’ve created a number of packages and special offers designed to customize your visit. Whether it’s rest and relaxation you seek, local sightseeing or seasonal activities, check back here to see what we have in store.
