I just wanted to thank you all, and especially Becky, for all the help with not only the room reservations for guests at our daughter's wedding but for the great brunch you offered for a few of our friends this morning. My wife and I do come from time to for a weekend breakfast. We are never disappointed. Keep up... More

Stayed at the fine inn with my wife and was very happy. The accommodations are comfortable with well kept rooms and bathrooms. The inn shines, however, when it comes to the kind service of the innkeepers. Whatever our need, they made sure to make us feel at home. (Ray even drove us to our nearby wedding as we needed transportation.)... More

The Ipswich Bed and Breakfast was great for my husband and I. Ray.."like the sun"!...was indeed a welcoming host. He was very clear about wanting to do anything to make our stay a good one and he lived up to his promise! Although the room, advertised as two rooms was not what might be the suite you would expect, it... More

My husband and I are newlyweds. We had an...ordeal at another establishment during our honeymoon and found this gorgeous B&B by chance. Ray and Margaret welcomed us with open arms. We were greeted with a glass of wine (much needed after our ordeal elsewhere!) and got to talk to Ray anour the area. The location was perfect for us as... More

Upon arrival, Ray welcomed us like old friends; we were given a glass of wine to enjoy on the terrace whilst watching the wild turkeys wander around the beautiful gardens. This created an excellent first impression and we immediately felt at home. Ray also recommended a great restaurant for dinner that evening (Ithaki) and kindly booked a table for us.... More

This is the place to go for a real old fashioned breakfast. Small, bright and airy with outside seating and superb food. Corned beef hash is exceptional. Specials daily. Great service. Special functions available, the food is excellent.

Stayed one night here as we were in town for a friend's wedding. The owners Ray and Margaret were very welcoming and friendly, and let us check in early which was great. We had the Wicker Room which had great natural light, two nice ceiling fans, and a window A/C unit. The room was clean and the bed was very... More

When my sister and I arrived we were greeted by Ray and shown to our room, the Veranda Suite. The suite had a king sized bed and a pull out sofa bed which we needed since my sister is a restless sleeper. Although it is described as a two room suite it is really one large room with a nearly... More

Every room in this historic house is different, which makes your trip to this historic town doubly effective. Ray and family are warm and genuine, welcoming without being overly solicitous. Location is ideal, and we walked to dinner, at a very fine Greek restaurant a few blocks away. Breakfast is unusual, in its busy restaurant, and you get to order... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Circa 1864. Stroll on walkways throughout this almost-one-acre estate that is accented by terraced perennial gardens. The Victorian home with Italianate detail was built by a Civil War veteran who became a general merchant. Accommodations include guest bedrooms in the main house and the restored Carriage House, which offers more privacy. A wholesome breakfast is served in the sun drenched dining room, on the garden deck, or in the formal dining room in the historic house and is included in with the room. A tranquil ambiance is imparted during a visit here. ... more   less
