The Innkeepers

Mark and Debbie Stanglin have wanted to be innkeepers since they were engaged in Woodstock in October of 1989.

Mark, originally from Dallas, Texas, has an MBA from North Texas State University. Mark has been involved in commercial real estate since 1984.  As you can see from the Rose Bowl picture below, Mark loves sports!    Debbie is from New Jersey,  has a BA from Lynchburg College and a law degree from Syracuse University.  Debbie worked at IBM from 1988 until January 2000, when Mark and Debbie decided to leave the corporate life and  bought the Carriage House of Woodstock.  Debbie is the B&B chef and is active in school activities such as the School Board and the Yoh Theatre Players.

 

Stephanie - (age 19)  is an integral part of the inn - she's is now a sophmore at  Elon University where she is studying Secondary Education - Mathematics & Minoring in Theatre Arts.

 

Enjoy meeting Ruggles, the cat.  He'll love to play with you or just lay next to you in the parlor.

A Brief History

The building that is the Carriage House of Woodstock, was built about 1865 as a boarding house for a West Woodstock mill and machine shop owned by a Thomas Adams.  The original color of the building was red.    The machine shop and mill stayed in business until approximately 1903.  The house became a residence for the Bridge family -  Rudolphus Bridge used it as a "summer home" even though he lived near Killington the rest of the year.  His daughter kept the house until 1962 and the house remained a private residence until the mid 1970's when it again became a boarding house.  Since that time, it has been a florist shop and a gift shop.   

In 1984, the Carriage House of Woodstock became a Bed & Breakfast.  It was only 5 rooms with a very small kitchen.  It provided seasonal lodging for foliage, and was occasionally open whenever the owner felt like opening.

In 1991, the house was listed in the Vermont State Register of Historic Places.

  In the early 1990’s, the Carriage House fell into disrepair, and the bank foreclosed the property.  In 1994, it was bought from the bank by Shirley and Dennis Wagner, who began extensive renovations to the property.  Shirley and Dennis added two guest rooms and a laundry room in the attic; added a sprinkler system; and renovated the barn into two guest rooms, owners’ quarters and a garage.

In January 2000, we bought the Carriage House of Woodstock.  It was a very snowy Tuesday (in fact, the furniture couldn’t make it from New York until late Wednesday!)  In the last five years, we've added a fireplace in the parlor and TV's in most of the rooms and a lot of odds and ends to make your stay comfortable, fun and memorable.
