My partner and I are from Boston and wanted a weekend retreat to decompress from a busy month at work. The Maguires was the perfect choice. From the warm hug we received from Terry when we first arrived to the superb, full New England-style country breakfasts, this was by far my best B&B experience. I highly recommend the Wisteria Room which we stayed in-- both the room and the bathroom have a view of the lake and it felt like a warm, cozy enclave tucked away at the top of the house. I also liked the attention to detail, such as the sleep aromatherapy bath bubbles in the bathroom and the freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. It's only 75 mins drive from Boston so we are definitely planning more retreats in the future.
Another tip: it's got a great dark sky at night; we got a spectacular view of the Milky Way stretching directly overhead across the entire sky.
