“Beautiful retreat, most warming B&B I've been to”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

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.

Heard great things about Maguire House from a co worker. Took us 5hrs but the place, the owner and the view did not disappoint! Terry was very warm and accomodating. Gave us snacks for the hike(we havent checked in yet). Room/bathroom was very clean. Great breakfast and the view through those bay windows was just amazing. Would definitely recommend to anybody. Cant wait to go back in the winter and spring!

Have you ever looked at a Thomas Kinkade print or a Currier and Ives greeting card and wished you were there? The Maguire House B&B is that place. The beautiful house is warm and inviting and full of local history. The property is nothing less than breathtaking and looks out onto a beautiful tranquil lake. The innkeepers, Paul & Terri are fabulous! We arrived as first-time guests and within moments felt like part of the family. The breakfast is superb and the afternoon homemade snacks are yummy. The rooms are well appointed and each has its own private bath. Every little detail of your stay is thoughtfully taken care of... chocolates in your room, fresh flowers and bottled water. A local calendar of events is provided and Terri will happily assist you with reservations or recommendations. Absolutely picture perfect. We will be back again, and again.

Room Tip: There are only three guest rooms and each has a private bath.

My wife & I stayed here for 1 week in late October. Terry & Paul are extremely inviting and made us feel as if we were staying with family or close friends. The room count is perfect for a New England B&B, we never saw things happen but our room miraculously became spotless every time we stepped out..The breakfast alone is enough to make a stay here worthwhile, Terry is an excellent cook and ensures guests all feel special. We met some wonderful people during our stay and always felt at home. Terry seemed to appear from thin air to answer questions or just to chat at the perfect times. The service of guests surpassed wildest expectations, comfortable room with amazing view, delicious food, accommodating hosts, what more could anyone ask for. If you are ready to experience true hospitality at it's finest The Maguire House B&B should be at the top of your list! Thank you to Terry & Paul for sharing your "home" with us, we will most certainly be coming back!

You will see that I have placed an excellent review on the "fitness center", understand that the only fitness center provided is direction to the lake and your own feet. The walks were far better than any man made fitness center!

We stayed here in late August and loved it. The view was amazing. It is in an area with lots of trees, but the house is situated at the top of a hill and the view of the lake is amazing. The room was lovely, but the food was most amazing!!! They even surprised us with local maple syrup. We will return!!!
