The inn is decorated with various artifacts ( scrolls, dolls, fans, shoe cubbies, Boy's day display) from owner Mikako's native country, Japan. This is her husband Jason's adopted country , as well. 5 breakfast choices are offered on MIkako's rustic pottery as well as an Americanized version of a Japanese breakfast ( except for the authentic miso soup). The patter... More

Kaede is a wonderful B&B with a unique atmosphere in the heart of Ipswich in easy walking distance of the downtown area and restaurants. Jason and Mikako were wonderful hosts - friendly and helpful. The home is unique with its Japanese influence - quiet, clean, and comfortable. This is a place I would certainly return to if I go to... More

My husband and I rarely stay in B&Bs - wary of forced socializing and too many doilies - but Kaede intrigued us when we perused the website. Sure enough, it was a gem. Jason and Mikako were down-to-earth, friendly, non-intrusive and helpful when we asked for pointers re: restaurants and sites. The home is beautifully restored, (without losing any of... More

Right in the heart of Ipswich, a beautiful and history-filled New England town, this Bed & Breakfast offers a fantastic location- only minutes from beaches, great restaurants, parks, hiking, biking, and historic attractions. And, Kaede is absolutely unique! The owners have put a lot of care into the vintage New England property, and bring their own personality to the unusual... More

I stayed here in July for one night with my boyfriend on a weekend trip through Ipswich and Rockport, MA. We found the place through Trip Advisor, and we were intrigued by the atmosphere of the place. In reality it was even better than our expectations. The room that we had at the top of the stairs was the only... More

My wife and I arrived to this little gem on a roadtrip. We booked one day in advance, we was met with smiles, lots of great advice about the area and a great level of service. The rooms were really nice but the best was Jason, Makiko and Asuka who just took us in and treated as fantastically.

My husband and I were at Kaede recently for one night. We usually stay in hotels, not B &B's, but we had read such great things about Jason, Makiko and Asuka......and they were all true. They are very welcoming and kind and their home is very comfortable. The highlights for us were the jaccuzzi tub (my husband) and the traditional... More

Jason, Makiko and Auska were completely delightful as hosts especially on Christmas Day! Room was beautiful, everything clean and welcoming. The breakfast stunningly yummy with many alternatives including healthy Japanese breakfast. All around great place.

Just within short walking distance of town, this Inn was perfect for our romantic anniversary overnight. Hosts Jason and Mikiko were incredibly and warmly welcoming. They made our stay perfect with every detail, from our accommodations to the amazing Japanese breakfast, and an impromptu fire under a full moon. We had a great time and look forward to going back!
