What a delightful experience! John and Shari are magical. Loved the great breakfasts and the viewing of "Casablanca" which I had never seen before. Being able to see old, classic movies is a real plus. The wine selection is outstanding, and John and Shari really know their wines. John makes a mean Martini too. Love the decor. What a great...

This is one of those experiences that earned a 5 star. I really enjoy the small touches of this home from the original style to the decor.

Just returned from a long weekend. Lovely B&B with excellent service. Stayed in the Peach room, nice comfy bed, great bedding, but very small bathroom. Wonderful 1700's home, full of period furnishings and great old wood. A bit of noise out front from being on a small 2 lane busy road, but nothing to keep you up at night. Wonderful,... More

My spouse and I just stayed at this charming B&B during a business trip in Massachusetts. If you want to speak about culture, just being inside this building is a journey through time back to it's conception in circa 1780. The bones of this building are incredible, moving you through time back into the colonial comfort, which I can only... More

Dear "Travel Boy," What a truly wonderful review of The Red Maple Inn! How kind of you to write about the beauty of this lovely 1780 home that is on The National Register of Historic Places in Massachusetts and still playing host to travelers on the former Old Boston Road, now Route 9. It is rumored that General Washington attended... More

Lovely B&B in a small town. The owners were friendly and helpful. We stayed in the cottage: private and adorable. Lovely landscaped yard, perfect for reading and relaxing either alone or with other guests. Will definitely return.

Thank you most kindly for your wonderful review. I must say I too love The Cottage. I designed it to resemble a Nantucket cottage where I spent many years and loved the tiny rose covered cottages by the sea. I love to share that experience with our guests and so happy you appreciated the calm and quiet as well. Our... More

We thank the writer for staying with us and for sharing her comments in this forum. We're sorry the weather had been so cold and rainy, and we're glad that the air conditioning alleviated any sense of stuffiness in her room. And yes she did indeed see the owner at breakfast.

Three of our bathrooms have a standard size shower which may in fact be a bit cramped for tall guests, though we rarely hear of a problem.
