This is the place to go for a real old fashioned breakfast. Small, bright and airy with outside seating and superb food. Corned beef hash is exceptional. Specials daily. Great service. Special functions available, the food is excellent.

Stayed one night here as we were in town for a friend's wedding. The owners Ray and Margaret were very welcoming and friendly, and let us check in early which was great. We had the Wicker Room which had great natural light, two nice ceiling fans, and a window A/C unit. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Good location, easy to walk into town and a quick drive to Crane Beach and the Estate at Castle Hill. The breakfast included in the morning was excellent! We'd definitely stay here again.

When my sister and I arrived we were greeted by Ray and shown to our room, the Veranda Suite. The suite had a king sized bed and a pull out sofa bed which we needed since my sister is a restless sleeper. Although it is described as a two room suite it is really one large room with a nearly room-wide arched wall opening (no door) that separates the bedroom area from the sitting area. The sofa is positioned at an angle that requires you to move it each time to pull the window shade up and down. Also, when the sofa is opened to use as a bed, it blocks the passage to the room door making it so one entering and leaving the room would have to crawl over the opened sofa bed. I was worried about needing to use the door in an emergency and decided not to open the bed.

The decor in the sitting room reminded me of my aunt's house that had "odds and ends" pieces of furniture but the bedroom part felt more welcoming. One of the closets had sweaters and hand bags stored inside. There was carpeting in the bedroom and bare wood floor in the sitting area. There was an older air conditioning unit in the window in back of the sofa. I would have liked better lighting for reading.

The bathroom was large with both a claw footed tub and shower. Towels were large and very soft. Both the bathroom and bed/sitting room were very clean. The bedroom/sitting room had four windows--two of the "older" windows had room darkening shades but the single and double newer windows had just white cotton curtains which let in a lot of light in the early morning waking us around 5:45 a.m. The king bed was very comfortable and there were ample pillows.

Breakfast is served in a large room that reminds one of a sun room. On the morning we were there, there was only one waitress to take care of the whole room plus the outdoor deck seating area which was much to much for any one person to handle. We chose our breakfast from the menu which had a large assortment of items and then waited an hour and twenty minutes from the time we ordered our breakfast until we were served. Finally, another person from the front desk came to help out. The orange juice was delicious. I had an omelet which was cooked very well and the bacon was crispy as ordered. The cranberry muffin seemed "tough" as if the batter had been overbeaten and not very good. The yogurt, granola and fresh fruit was very good.

Thanks to Ray and Margaret, Rebecca and all the team at the Ipswich Inn who made our family feel so comfortable during our stay last weekend. The meals we ate there were delicious and met the diverse needs of our family of five effortlessly.We all agreed that the gardens surrounding the outside dining area are enchanting and the rooms were cozy and clean. You all made our weekend especially memorable.

Every room in this historic house is different, which makes your trip to this historic town doubly effective. Ray and family are warm and genuine, welcoming without being overly solicitous. Location is ideal, and we walked to dinner, at a very fine Greek restaurant a few blocks away. Breakfast is unusual, in its busy restaurant, and you get to order whatever you like.
