Fully renovated Victorian Farmhouse, yet still maintains the charm of yesterday hosting original architecture and woodwork. The front porch is a wonderful place to relax in one of the rocking chairs or on the porch swing. Majestic views of the mountains, gardens and countryside can be seen for miles. There are five guest rooms all with private baths, some with jacuzzi tubs. Each has its own charm and character. Some guest rooms have fireplaces and comfortable seating areas.

Our only regret was not spending more time here! The rooms are immaculate, very elegant dining, very lovely hosts. Will most definitely stay again!

We had a wonderful time making this a home away from home with all the comforts. The house was extremely clean and the linens very comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious with a different homemade muffin for each day of our visit. The extra's were left in the guest kitchenette for snacking on later with a cup of tea or coffee. Our hosts were helpful with finding interesting things to do during our stay and some of the favorite local restaurants. We plan to return in the near future!

Our family spent several days here at this lovely retreat, renting the entire inn for a family reunion. All of the guest rooms were very clean, unique and tastefully decorated. Homemade muffins were served every morning as was a different breakfast. Nice presentation and best of all everything was HOT! Would highly recommend this location for a couple's visit or for a family reunion. You won't be disappointed.

Our stay at Maple Shade B&B was the best experience we've had with bed and breakfast accommodations. We were so glad we chose to stay there. The setting is so relaxing from the wrap around porch with magnificent views of the mountains to the beautiful perennial gardens. The food was excellent and JoAnn made every effort to ensure the menu suited our tastes. The muffins were great! I loved the kitchenette they provided for the guests to use. Tom and family members did an excellent job of renovating the house. I'm looking forward to our next visit.

Our entire experience was outstanding! The inn is beautiful. The common areas were very welcoming and our room was charming (and spotless). The bed was so comfortable and the linens felt great to sleep in. We had a lot of rain while visiting and the temps were cool. The fireplace kept us cozy. Our breakfasts were enormous and were lovingly cooked by Joanne. We felt so well cared for. The property is breathtakingly beautiful. I HIGHLY recommend the Maple Shade Inn!
To everyone who has taken the time to write a review a sincere thank you from the both of us. We would like all of our guests to feel welcome and special during their time here.

My husband and I had a wonderful and relaxing time at Maple Shade and thoroughly enjoyed our time there! The house is in a beautiful setting not too far from downtown Saratoga Springs and has some of the most beautiful rooms we've seen. If you're looking for a place where you can sit back, relax, and feel at home without all the kitchy B&B stuffiness of some other places, this is the spot. We took a drive downtown for dinner and it wasn't far at all. Breakfast was incredible as well, and Jo Ann even offered to give us the rest of our muffins in a "doggy bag" to go as we continued our trip. Thanks, Tom and Jo Ann for a lovely stay!

Ross and I have been to many B&Bs over the years, but Maple Shade Bed & Breakfast is by far our favorite getaway for rest, relaxation, fabulous breakfasts and the most welcoming inn keepers. We always look forward to returning and do so approximately 3 to 4 times per year with family and friends and everyone falls in love with the beauty of the B&B, its location and of course Tom and Jo Ann.

Unquestionably the most relaxing stay ever. The peace and quiet was just what we needed. The made to order breakfast, the immaculate and beautifully decorated room, the authentic black and white photos of Tom and JoAnn’s parents and grandparents, the amazing porch swing (complete with blanket) and the gluten free muffins that Tom made just for us (doggie bag included) were just what the doctor ordered. Tom and his Golden Retriever “Cosmo” were nothing short of terrific. This was a real life postcard. We'll absolutely be back. Our best to Tom and Cosmo. Can't wait to meet JoAnn. PS: The beautiful city of Saratoga Springs is only 15 mins away. We never made it there :D Sincerely, Vince and CaroleAnn
