Wonderful Experience

5 on November 11, 2014

This was our first experience in a B&B and we were not sure what to expect. Our stay far exceeded our expectations. Deborah and Jim were exceptional hosts accommodating our every request. The home was lovely with with many special touches. Our room was a pleasure to relax in. The breakfasts were delicious and beautifully presented. We will certainly be going back when we need another getaway weekend..

Outstanding Inn

5 on October 25, 2014

During our 6 week vacation in Ireland and the New England area we stayed in a number of B and Bs. The Sleigh Maker Inn was one of two that stood out above the rest. Deborah and Jim go way beyond simple hospitality. They pay attention to what their guests want and need and accommodate those needs. Their older home is lovely and the food is delicious. I highly recommend this Inn.

Great B&B!

Wanted a convenient place to stay at a good price to pick up our son at Logan Airport in Boson. The owners are very nice people that make you feel at home and the breakfast was fantastic. Convenient location to a historic area and a country club within walking distance that had a nice deck and good food. Would definitely stay here again if in the area. Thanks Deborah and Jim!

Feels like "Home"!

We stayed here Memorial Day weekend and right from the moment we entered the house, we were in love with this place. Deborah and Jim were the nicest people. The room was amazing. The house was beautiful. Whenever possible, we will always stay at a B&B when traveling from now on. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting the area. The town says New England to me.

Above and Beyond

When I came in to Boston, I intended to get a rental car and drive out, but there were, unfortunately, problems with the car. I arrived (very) late and frustrated from travel plans going awry. Deborah was a God-send. She left me out cookies, fruit, and a sandwich despite it being well after her bedtime, and made sure I had gotten in safely. The next morning, after a simply delicious breakfast, I asked about the best way to get to me destination without a car. I had intended to take a commuter rail, which would require me to leave quite early, and was pretty inconvenient. Deborah, however, volunteered to drive me where I was going, saving me over an hour. I cannot stress again how fantastic my experience at the Sleigh Maker was in every aspect. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone and everyone.

Top notch

My daughter and I spent a wonderful fall weekend at the Sleigh Maker Inn. Our room was spotless and incredibly comfy, the food was beyond fabulous, and owners delightful. This is a true bargain I can highly recommend to anyone traveling in the area. I can't wait to return sometime in winter.

1st stay at a B&B and we won't be going back to hotels

5 on September 10, 2013

We had a great stay at the Sleigh Maker Inn over the Labor Day weekend. Even though all rooms were full while we were there, no issues of lacking service could be found. Deborah & Jim were delightful hosts and took every chance to be sure we had a wonderful stay. The food was fabulous and special requests didn't seem to be a problem. The company at breakfast was delightful and we ended up spending an hour and a half in conversation with other guests and never felt hurried at all. Would absolutely recommend this establishment to anyone traveling in the area and also recommend Deborah handmade soaps. We purchased a bottle to take with us. Great place, great folks and great atmosphere. Bravo!

Exceptional Bed and Breakfast

5 on April 25, 2013

My daughter and I stayed one night during a sharp cold spell last February. Some of the problems we anticipated in having no car were solved by the kind help of Deborah and Jim who picked us up at the commuter train station and mapped out great restaurants within walking distance of the Inn. The Inn itself was lovely - much like staying in a private, historic home. We were greeted on our arrival with homemade cookies and tea. Breakfast was unforgettable still - everything homemade with all natural ingredients from fruit smoothies to nutty waffles. And thank heavens for the coffee which was as rich and fresh as I make for myself. Our room had a single queen bed, firm mattress, and quality linens. The room was large and comfortable and attractively furnished. The bathroom retained an historic feel with artwork and baskets full of handmade soaps. Very much appreciated the fluffy towels and bathrobes. Deborah and Jim have created an exceptional bed and breakfast - we very much look forward to returning.
