Innkeeper Marti Ladd renovated the premises with an eye to classic detail and modern amenities to suit today’s traveler. The Inn offers 6 antique-filled guest suites, a luxurious owner’s penthouse, a legendary conversation porch, koi water garden and an in-ground saline swimming pool. This Inn delivers the romance of a bygone era in an exquisite garden environment. The inn enjoys a solid reputation of gracious hospitality and goodwill in the heart of Woodstock, New York. The residence is steps away from the many restaurants, galleries and boutiques of the town center. The award-winning Victorian, built in 1898 has a stately ‘painted lady’ presence on attractively landscaped grounds. Antique maple trees surround the manicured grounds, with perennial flower beds and herb gardens. The “white mansion”, as it was called in 1898, stands on the former John Wigram estate. Turn of the century owner Calvin Short began converting the massive red barns at the Lower Brydcliff crossroads into studios for the colorful artists of the Rock City movement - an off-shoot of bohemians from Ralph Whitehead’s utopian Byrdcliff colony. The main floor has 10 ft. ceilings for 5 guest rooms each with a private bath. Each room is meticulously appointed with antique furnishings for sophisticated comfort. The common dining room seats 8, with a buffet style breakfast. Convenient lobby wet/bar is central to the first floor which includes farm style porcelain sink, custom appliances (d/w and refrigerator) behind solid cherry cabinets, and an instant hot water tap. The center hall stairs lead to a second-floor with convertible use of space. A 6th guest room suite with spa style bathroom equipped with steam room and double whirlpool tub can provide additional income or innkeeper can simply maintain an elegant 3 bed/2 bath apartment. As B&B’s go, The Wild Rose Inn boasts very spacious and comfortable owner’s quarters on the second fl. It’s not hard to see a new owner having the flexibility to open the main kitchen, which is currently off limits to guests, for cooking classes. The master bedroom, with 17’ cathedral ceiling and stained glass accents has a modern bathroom with coffered wood ceiling, glass shower, Euro tankless toilet and bidet which adjoins second bedroom. Innkeepers apartment is completely separate from guest quarters and is highlighted by several key features including a light filled open-plan office, second fl sunroom with year-round treetop views, dining room balcony offering mountain views, as well as a bay-shaped den with original wood board flooring. Importantly, this grand building is in absolutely top condition. From the new radiant heat coils in the gutter system, to a brand new Generac backup power system - maintenance is impeccable and all the behind-the-scenes mechanical systems are up to date. This exceptional turnkey B&B has a long history of success as the area’s premiere Victorian-style inn. The property was purchased by the current owner in 1998 with the intent of restoring the property to it highest and best use, which has been done in superb fashion. The return clientele is strong and stable and we consistently earn excellent ratings and reviews from guests. You get it all the moment you own it.
