My wife and I took a bicycle trip from Boston to the Maguire house, and boy was it a wonderful destination! We arrived at sunset to a friendly greeting from Terry and Paul, and a batch of warm cookies just coming out of the oven. The house has a gorgeous view overlooking a small lake and rolling hills off into the distance, and the sitting room is cozy and comfortable. We loved the make-yourself-at-home feel, with complementary coffee, beer, wine, and snacks available at any time.
The room was very nice and comfortable, and breakfast the following morning was exquisite. We woke up to fruit salad, hot coffee, and fresh scones while Terry prepared the main breakfast (she cooks a mean eggs benedict!). We cannot recommend this B&B highly enough -- great food, great company, and a fantastic value.
