great visit

5 on May 01, 2015

We stay at Country Garden Inn each time we visit family in Ipswich. The rooms are always pleasant and clean....lovely outdoor gardens and pool area and very reasonably priced. I did not rate the onsite dining because I am not aware that there is any but there are good restaurants nearby.

first visit to Ipswich area

In planning my first visit to Ipswich - for a few days of work - I searched for lodging options and decided that the Country Garden Inn looked good. It was a good choice. Registration and checking in was uncomplicated. The room was quite adequate for my needs and included all of my required amenities - convenient location, clean & comfortable, decent wifi and a good shower. There were many reasonable dining options nearby. If you're looking for a quality B&B in the Ipswich area, consider the Country Garden Inn. I would definitely stay here again!

Great spot for a quiet stay.

Very quiant and comfortable!

One of the nicest Bed & Breakfast I have been to! The Innkeeper Richard was extremely accommodating and friendly. The room was perfect! Very clean and very convenient to downtown Newburyport. I will definitely stay there again in the near future!

Great Place!

We were pleasantly surprised with the this place! I would stay here again! Very clean, comfortable rooms. The ONLY thing bad were that the walls in the unit we were in were VERY thin, so thin we could hear normal conversation and snoring next door...they should insulate the walls! Other than that, this was a great place! CJ - Minneapolis, MN

We had a great time!

We were supposed to initially stay in the main house, and were assigned one of the rooms in the Carriage House. Which was fine, until we ended up paying more than what we were quoted. There was nothing to be done there, as the innkeeper was out of town, but he cleared everything up just as soon as he heard. It was wonderful talking to the ladies at the front desk, and I got some great books recommended to me! Bradford Tavern was mentioned as THE place to go for dinner, and it was indeed very good food. We hope to return again!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for staying with us, it was a pleasure to have you. I am sorry for any mistake on our part, and I am glad we were able to respond to it in a satisfactory manner. We look forward to having you back.

Great Place to stay

Great place to stay; very convenient to all of the wonderful things to do on the North Shore. We and many family members have stayed here over the last 20 years and always come back here when we are in the area.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for staying with us! As a 6th Generation Hotelier in New England, it is gratifying to see guests return decade after decade. That is the foundation upon which this trade was built, and we try hard to meet that same standard of quality, over a century after this Inn was built.

Convenient and pleasant

This was our second stay at the Country Garden Inn, and it was as pleasant as the first one. Pleasant rooms and surroundings, a competent and friendly staff, and close to our points of interest (Newburyport, Farnham's fried clams, and Ipswich River/Mass Audubon sanctuary). We will more than likely stay there again!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Nice Getaway

4.0 on August 27, 2014

My husband I needed to escape for a couple days and when we went online to find a bed and breakfast that was close to where we were heading we found the Country Garden Inn. The price was comparable to the big box hotels and much nicer.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words, we strive to make everyone feel as if they are important to us, because they are! As a 6th Generation Hotelier I take pride in this Hotel, and it's staff. It is gratifying to hear that after 90 years, we are still doing things the right way.

Weekend Getaway

We needed a weekend getaway badly and got the townhouse... it was amazing and exactly what we needed to relax... u feel like ur up in New Hampshire or Maine its so quiet and peaceful... the hot tub was definitely worth the stay and the coziness of the townhouse with the fireplace in the living room as well as the loft bedroom was very romantic

Innkeeper Response
Thank You! It was a pleasure to have you here, and we are looking forward to having you back!
