“Heaven, I,m in Heaven!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

As the setting off point for our two week holiday we couldnt have stopped at a more perfect place. Arriving just as it was getting dusky, the house which is set back from the road up a slight slope looks spectacular, big, but inviting with warm little candle lamps glowing in each window. Mike & Nancy came out to greet us & offered help with the cases which was very welcome. The house is peaceful & makes you feel settled & at ease instantly. The "public" space is very civilised & the DVD player in the room with the offer to use the library of discs was a nice touch (although we didnt avail ourselves, I can imagine that there would be times when it would be a welcome diversion!) We stayed in the Garden Room which was just perfect for relaxing & slumbering. The bed was massive (certainly for us!) & comfortable enough for my insomina to take a bit of a pounding & giving me the longest sleep I have had in a good few years! The bedding is luscious & people who love quilting would have given the place 11/10 just on that basis alone! Breakfasts - home cooked & three courses (!) on both mornings were interesting, nutirious & set us up til late into the afternoon. Nancy is a wonderful baker with the lightest touch - her cherry scones would blow away in a the smallest of breezes ;0) Advice & help about where to eat was forthcoming & spot on - greatly appreciated. I cant finish this without mentioning the grounds around the house, if you love nature sitting out on the verandah in a chair quietly observing the activity by the bird feeders is a treat in itself & not to be missed..

The final accolades must go to Mike this morning when we found ourselves locked out of our hire car - he stepped up to the plate, made the call, reassured us & handled it all with good grace. We would commend Maple Leaf to anyone, who seeks sanctuary, calm & excellent hospitality in the Woodstock area. Go! Enjoy!!

i simply can't think of anything negative about this delightful B&B. yes it is 10 miles from Woodstock, but there is a good restaurant a minute to two away. we were greeted so warmly and offered a glass of wine or beer...Good start after a long trip. freshly baked cookies at bottom of stairs, cosy sitting rooms with daily papers, the most delicious breakfast, Owners never far away and very conscious of our needs.. this B&B was recommended to me by a friend in England..I live in Australia. my friend stayed here in winter, sat sipping wine by an open fire in her bedroom. The attention to detail here is quite extraordinary. I asked Mike if he knew the best way to get to Quebec City and within a minute or two he arrived with two printed out options. The rooms are delightfully furnished and bathrooms great.

Room Tip: Depends on time of year. we had morning Glory in June. Sunnny in am. Winter, ask for one with a log...

Over the last 15 years we have stayed at the Maple Leaf Inn in Barnard Vermont many times. Mike and Nancy have always made us feel like family. Not only are all the rooms beautifully decorated, it is the small things that they do that make the experience so complete.If you are looking for anything in the Woodstock area, this is the place to stay. Close to everything, but with a very remote feel.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a fireplace, so check if you are looking for one. Also, some rooms have 2 person...

Nancy and Mike warmly greeted us as we arrived...helped with our bags. Their "Home" is classic New England with all modern amenities. We stayed in the charming "Country Garden" room. Big Comfy King-size bed...Large bathroom - beautifully decorated. The food was incredible...Nancy and Mike gave great recommendations for restaurants and "things to do".
Nancy made a reservation for us that evening. The property is wonderful..serene - well manicured. Just what we looking for. We truly felt like we were visiting "old friends"

We adored our stay despite the miserable weather the weekend we were there. The entire place was a cozy nook, with delightful comforts (lovely baths) and modern ammenities (wi-fi, etc.) I had some of the lightest, fluffiest muffins ever during one of the two amazing breakfasts, and our hosts' recommendations for dinner and sites were right on target with our interests. Even the sheets were a delight. We booked a weekend next year before we left.

Room Tip: We loved the Winter Room (biggest bath), but the innkeepers mentioned that for those who enjoy TV in...

Our stay at the Maple Leaf Inn was wonderful from beginning to end. The owners, Nancy and Mike, make you feel at home from the moment your car pulls into the driveway, provide spacious and inviting rooms and incredible breakfasts (Nancy's baking alone is worth the trip to Vermont), and then help you make the most of your stay with great sightseeing, dining, and shopping recommendations. What sets The Maple Leaf Inn apart from so many B&B's is the comfortable, unfussy elegance (the beds and bed linens are especially nice) and the behind-the-scenes efficiency that keeps everything running smoothly so the guests can truly enjoy a relaxed and calm atmosphere. I definitely plan on going back!!

My sister and I just had a wonderful visit at The Maple Leaf Inn in Vermont for four days. What a beautiful setting! Nancy and Mike are great innkeepers and make their guests feel right at home. Nancy's homemade baked goods and breakfasts were outstanding. I am looking forward to going again with my husband.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are lovely.
