We spent three nights at the Ipswich Inn and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Not only was our room lovely, but the breakfasts were outstanding. Ipswich Inn includes a restaurant that is open to others who are not hotel guests. As a hotel guest, breakfast is included and you can choose from the menu. The inn is decorated... More

We had one night in early December. I was very pleased with this inn. It was even lovelier than the photos showed. We had the Verandah Room. It's very large. The bathroom is large & has lots of space for your toiletries. The bed was super comfortable, and we enjoyed good bedside lights. The books in the large bookcase were... More

We had a nice stay at the Inn. Our room was spacious and clean. The owners were able to accommodate our last minute upgrade to a bigger room. We really appreciated that! We did hear a person who was staying in another room arrive at 1am and start showering. We were woken up by the shower. The breakfast room was... More

Loved staying here 4 nights in mid November 2015. The breakfast each morning in the Inn's restaurant was terrific. The Cheesy Egg scramble (with Boursin cheese) is a winner! Stayed in the Wicker and Jordan Rooms and both were excellent. Ray, Margaret and all the staff are so helpful, friendly and welcoming. Will definitely be back and bring my family!

My girlfriend and I spent the weekend at the Ipswich Inn. We flew in from California to look at the foliage. It was wonderful. The breakfast was fantastic and our room was clean and quiet. We stayed on the third floor in the Sky room but the Inn staff carried my luggage which was my only concern. I am planning... More

We recently returned "home" to see family and friends for the weekend. Born and raised in Ipswich, my husband and I had such a great time staying in this warm and friendly Inn. Extensive renovations made to this great house made it feel like a home. Cannot beat the hospitality of Ray and Margaret and the breakfast was unreal! It... More

Stayed there for one night on Friday and it was wonderful. We stayed in the Carriage House Room that was incredibly spacious and immaculate. Ray , the Innkeeper, made sure everything was great during our stay. Breakfast was incredibly good. I had the cranberry pecan pancakes that were HUGE and perfectly prepared. Definitely would stay there again.

The owner and his wife live in the victorian home. The rooms was beautiful and tasteful. There is a breakfast restaurant attached to the inn, which is included in your stay.... More

I stayed here for a night when I brought my son up to college. Clean, comfortable, quiet... it's not your typical BnB, a lovely breakfast was served in their restaurant where you could order off the menu.
