Northbridge, Massachusetts
Reviewed February 21, 2017

Stayed here for two nights. Dan, the Innkeeper, is a pleasure to work with. Breakfasts were very, very good, and we enjoyed chatting with the other guests in the morning. You need to be sharp-eyed when you first arrive, as there are no external signs roadside, just a little turquoise bear icon on the street number at the entrance.

It was wonderful to have you and Christine stay with us Matthew! We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay. We agree that the conversation around our community breakfast table is a great way to start the day! We do have signage for our Inn on Old Santa Fe Trail but are not allowed to have it at our driveway...

We stayed 5 nights at this wonderful inn with beautiful Santa Fe architecture. Innkeeper Dan creates great gourmet breakfasts. Most important---they have pet friendly rooms. Our Corgi had a welcome bag of treats waiting for him.
