I have been traveling to the Red Maple Inn for 8 years, the keepers are always welcoming and the entire experience is the definition of hospitality! If you are coming to see the seasons change in New England, this is the spot, but if you are traveling for business, this will make work seem like leisure.

The Innkeeper, Lynn made us feel at home in this very clean, well maintained historic home. The Rose Room was very quaint with its Victorian Style. The Fireplace Feast at the nearby Salem Cross Inn that was recommended by Lynn was excellent. The homemade breakfast was very tasty and the service was outstanding. We highly recommend the Red Maple Inn...

Beautiful inn and rooms, clean, friendly and accommodating staff, awesome fresh plentiful breakfast. Flexible to meet our schedule as we were there for graduation ceremonies and had to leave earlier than the usual breakfast time - much appreciated.

I read several reviews before staying at the Inn and looked forward to the stay. However, my review is less glowing than most. It is a charming old home; the principals are friendly, very helpful with information of the area and breakfast is prepared to order. Perhaps it is because I usually do not frequent B & B's that I...

Dear TravelingIsLearning, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We always do our best to meet or rise above expectations. The Red Maple Inn was built in 1780 and although it is over 200 years old and has a history from being owned by Colonel White who served in the army under George Washington in the Continental...

My experience is a little different than most. I was looking for an ideal location for a photo session and was struggling with ugly corporate Worcester hotels. Until, I found The Red Maple Inn - the website photos do not do it justice!! I spoke with the Inn owners who were so incredibly kind even though it was a Sunday...

Shari and John are the most lovely hosts ever! We had 6 couples at The Red Maple Inn this past weekend, we took over the entire home, and our hosts could not have been more accommodating. Everything about our weekend at The Red Maple Inn was perfect; from the breakfast choices to the rooms/accommodation. We took advantage of the Fireside...

We spent two nights here. This is a lovely 19c white New England style home in the pretty town of Spencer. It's a 1/2 mile from the town center (walkable, but the walk back is up a very steep hill). It's a 15-20 minute drive to downtown Worcester, but a good location for seeing the sights of central Massachusetts, the...

Dear Guests, Thank you for your review, we are very happy you enjoyed your stay at the Inn. You clearly spent some time in writing your review and we appreciate your comments. Two things deserve clarification. As opposed to many other small inns, we do not impose check in times for our guests. Although we prefer to welcome guests personally,...

Loved the place. Wonderful hosts, great breakfast, clean and charming accomodations. Located close to Old Sturbridge Village. Nice historic town. Easy drive from Boston and anywhere in Massachusetts. Historic, yet modern conveniences.

Prior to our two night stay, we received an email to say that they did not permit cancellations for any reason including death. Not a welcoming message. I understand that there is a local antiques fair at this time, however I would also expect that it would be easy to rebook the room at a busy time. A second email...

We thank the guest for his comments. We are always disappointed when a guest has a less than wonderful experience at the Inn, even when caused by events beyond our control. A few words of background may be helpful. The Brimfield Antique Fair is held 3 times a year (one week each in May, July, and September) and, according to...
