We loved everything about our stay. The house is beautifully restored and is comfortable and inviting. Craig and Kathy are friendly and helpful and knowledgeable. Being right on the Rail Trail is a delight - we were able to walk and pedal right from the Inn. The bookshelves are loaded with great books - it would be a perfect place to curl up and learn about the history of the railroad, the area, so much more. Breakfast was delicious and generous, the fruit salad was beautiful! I look forward to visiting again and will tell all my friends.

The Sugar Maple Trailside Inn hugs the Norwottuck Rail Trail, and is the ideal B&B to see and ride the Norwottuck bicycle trestle bridge - and bike even further to Amherst (and back). You will not regret it!

This is a B & B outside Northampton in the village of Florence, which is a very short drive to downtown Northampton. Craig and Kathy were very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area both current and history. This is right next to the Northampton Rail to Trail for walking or biking. We stayed in the room with queen size bed and slept very comfortably. Nice room, quaint decor. The breakfast is not a full egg breakfast like some B&Bs, but the food offered was fresh & plentiful. Fruit, yogurt, Homemade Granola by Kathy, scones and muffins. Coffee was good too. We've been coming to the area for about 4 years visiting our son, and wish we would have found this place sooner. Will definitely stay here again!

Nicer accommodations or warmer, more interesting hosts do not exist. Learn about trains/architecture and the origination of Rails to Trails. Take advantage of the adjacent bike/pedestrian pathway year-round. The Inn's web site and video convey the basics they offer, plus the showers are hot and the beds comfortable. You'll sleep well. Yogurt (protein) is available with the Continental breakfast and balances the fresh fruits and breads selection. Great location to explore the area, especially on bicycle. Having just 2 rooms, and not 50, is a plus in my book!

My wife, mother, and I, spent a long weekend in Northampton for a wedding in mid-September 2015. Craig and Kathy were very warm and welcoming, and the room accommodations were clean and comfortable. They were also incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the town which lead to some educational breakfast conversations as we got prepared for the day. Their house sits on a bike trail and is only a about a mile from Look Park, which is well-worth the quick ride to go see. It's also very close to some shops, restaurants and bars. 10/10 stars for the Sugar Maple Inn. We had a wonderful time. Thanks Craig and Kathy!
