bed was comfortable- brought our own white noise machine (after reading other's reviews). also had window a/c on (which also drowned out street noise) because the room seemed damp and stuffy, not cold (torrential rain showers/old house). having the kitchenette was convenient. arrived around 5:30pm, note on door to welcome us. assume we saw owner at breakfast, but not sure...

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.

My husband and I stayed two weekend nights in the Rose Room on a gift certificate purchased by our son and future daughter-in-law. The breakfasts had choices including juice, fruit, oatmeal, sausages, omelets, scrambled eggs, muffins, crosiants, coffee, tea, etc-selected/ordered the day before. They were nicely served by the manager in the pretty dining room, and were quite good and... More

My husband and I spent the night in the Peach Room at the Red Maple Inn last Friday night after attending a concert in Worcester. The Inn is very charming and beautiful. We stayed in the Peach Room which was simply lovely. My only complaint is that the bathroom was very small - definitely not meant for someone who is... More

Thank you for your stay and for your very nice comments. We so appreciate that you took time to write. 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. When we converted this 1780 historic home to an Inn, we made the... More

a lovely home just outside of Boston. The Rose room where we stayed was well decorated and spacious. The owner was friendly and suggested several options for dinner.
