superb!

My husband and I stayed here on our wedding night for a mini getaway. Terry was so accommodating with late check in and flexible on check out. The breakfast was awesome. The house is amazing with the best views at a B and B I've ever seen. Thank you Terry!


Sets the B&B bar very high!

5 on November 13, 2014

For my birthday, my boyfriend got us a fall getaway to Ashburnham. It was a first for both of us to stay at a B&B and we didn't know what to expect! Due to the overwhelmingly positive online reviews, my boyfriend decided to make a reservation at the Maguire House and I am so glad he did! Everything about our experience definitely made it a birthday to remember! We stayed in the beautiful Wisteria room. The views were breathtaking (I couldn't stop looking out the window!), the bed was extremely comfortable, and the adjoining bathroom was very convenient. Terry prepared a hearty and delicious breakfast for us each morning, and she and Paul had tons of suggestions for things to do in the area. We specifically went with a goal of hiking- they suggested Mt. Watatic and it was perfect! I cannot say enough good things about our experience! If you enjoy hiking, love fall, or just find yourself in need of a getaway do yourself a favor: go to Ashburbham and stay at the Maguire House! You will be so happy you did.


Pleasant Hosts! Great Breakfast! Clean and Cozy Estate!

5 on November 13, 2014

The Maguires proved exceptionally hospitable, as they exceeded our expectations in basically every aspect of our stay. My girlfriend and I embarked on an early November getaway, in which we were greeted by Terry, a gracious hostess, who provided us with a brief tour of their spectacular colonial estate. The meticulously-kept rooms had breathtaking views and exuded a lovely colonial charm. Terry accommodated us with complimentary tea, coffee, seasonal beer, and wine for the duration of our stay. Our bed in the Wistoria room was very comfortable, and the room (which dated back to the 18th century) evoked a quaint New England vibe. The daily breakfast options consisted of three courses - fruit bowl, baked pastry, and an egg/bacon dish - with each morning offering different options (all of excellent quality). Terry was very flexible in the time in which she would have breakfast prepared for us. Additionally, Terry and her husband, Paul, offered great advice for local accommodations, including the Wachusett brewery and various beautiful hiking trails. My girlfriend and I strongly recommend this place!


Home Away From Home

We stayed at The Maguire House when we took our son for his first autumn at Cushing Academy. I was anxious to say the least, Terry was so gracious it made the transition easier. The day would have been a lot harder if we went back to an impersonal hotel room.


A special place

Even if this was not a first-class bed and breakfast, the view and the grounds warrant a visit. But it is an outstanding bed-and-breakfast--a beautiful home, tastefully decorated (and not over-kitsched like so many B&Bs), very comfortable bed and high-quality amenities (including a list of local events during the period of our stay), and extremely gracious hosts (even when traffic caused us to arrive much later than anticipated).


Amazing!

My husband and I have terrible luck when it comes to B&B's. We have stayed at several where we've had truly awful experiences. Our stay at Maguire House changed all of that! We stayed here for one night as a quick getaway, and we never wanted to leave. The house is absolutely gorgeous, and Terry made our stay lovely. She was attentive without being intrusive and provided us with everything we could need. The breakfast was absolutely incredible! I don't honestly think I've ever had a better one. When we left, Terry gave us some roses from her garden as an anniversary present. I cannot recommend Maguire House enough. We will definitely go back there often and tell everyone we know!


Don't miss it

My wife and I are world travelers. This is the best and most beautiful B&B we've ever experienced in our 43 years together. Worth it for the views alone, but everything about the place is perfect.


Maguire House is magic

This B&B is truly exquisite from the hosts, to the exceptional breakfasts and the location on the lake. It makes this the best B&B my wife and I have found yet. The history behind the house is also makes this an interesting visit!


Lovely experience!

I stayed 4 nights at the Maguire House, a beautifully renovated house that was originally built in the mid-eighteenth century. The house and the grounds are quite charming and beautiful. Everything is pristine and the owners could not be more accommodating in every way. I cannot recommend this B&B highly enough. It is definitely the nicest I have ever stayed in.


Breath taking View

From the moment we entered the Maguire House Bed and Breakfast , it was an absolute beautiful stay! Terry and Paul were warm and friendly and very helpful with any of our questions of the area. The view is gorgeous and the home is very detailed with the lovely woodwork of an era long gone. Our room was excellent and we heard loons calling each other and also mourning doves! Fresh flowers and chocolates and home made cookies as we enjoyed the beautiful sunset and took pictures of the water fountain and wonderful garden . Can not wait to come back in the fall! I saved the best for last. Terry makes an awesome breakfast for each one!! Thank you and we will be back!!
