The Maguire House is small, historic inn set in a tranquil location "off the beaten path" of Route 2. With nearly 50 acres of wooded landscape and lake-front property with mountain vistas, it is easy for guests to find serenity in this pastoral retreat. With only three guestrooms, the large living room, "family" room, and dining room (porches in the summer) provided us with ample space to read and relax, in addition to our bedroom accommodations. Even at full occupancy, there always would be private spaces for our own afternoon or evening conversations, and especially at our own breakfast table overlooking the lake. Concerning breakfast, the fresh fruits and pasteries were a delicious way to begin a larger first meal of the day with a variety of cereals, juices, eggs, and pancakes on immediate offer. The innkeepers were genuinely gracious in every respect but thankfully not solicitous. We had reserved the Rose Room on a corner that afforded us views of the mountains, lake, and woods. The Country Room is also on a corner but with a lesser panorama. The Wisteria Room with three windows in a row overlooks the mountains and lake but, even with two entrances and an in-room bath, seemed more compressed to us. Although the Rose Room (also the Country Room) has its own adjacent, not in-room bath, we were not at all uncomfortable occasionally crossing the very private upstairs hallway. Both bedroom and bath were amply supplied with the highest quality towels and linens, not to mention chocolates and champagne. At any hour of the day or night, a variety of coffees, teas, sodas, and wines also were freely available in the dining room, as well as crackers, cheeses, nuts, chips, and a plate with a homemade fresh-baked treats. The Maguire House is the epitome of rest and relaxation.
