Looking for the top things to do in Vermont in December? You’ve come to the right place. Although the pandemic has affected many, we will still be celebrating the holidays this year, but with a slightly different flair. As we ensure that we are taking precautions, some of the typical events will be modified so that we are complying with socially distancing. That being said, we still have a variety of events going on in the month of December in the town of Woodstock. This time of year is a special time for everyone in Woodstock and we like to share all that we have to offer to our visiting guests. Many of our guests come to experience the wonderful surrounding shops to purchase great Christmas gifts. They also experience all the decorations and sounds of the town that residents and businesses have. Woodstock is a magical place at this time of year and we hope that you will be able to come and experience it. If you have been here before at this time of year, we welcome you back and if this is your first time coming, we hope that you will have fun!
We will also be decorating our beautiful inn for the holidays. Give us a call or check out our website to book your December stay. We would love to share the spirit of Christmas with you along with the town of Woodstock. Take a look at some of the top things to do in Vermont in December.
