The husband and I have stayed at many B&Bs over the years, and I have to say that Mike and Nancy's hosting skills are at the top of the list. So much attention to detail provided many nuanced surprises that truly made us feel comfortable. From sight seeing advice, to offers of glasses of wine in the evening, to different tchotchkes appearing on our pillows. And goodness, Beckett must be the cutest dog evah! Would go again in a heartbeat!
5 on May 19, 2016
We stayed for six nites in the Summer Retreat room while our friends stayed a floor above us. The inn is clean, comfortable and well-appointed. We all enjoyed our stay! Nancy and Mike felt like old friends by the time we left. They greeted us each time we returned from our day's travels and seemed genuinely interested in what we did. Mike suggested several good restaurants as well as things to see and do. My husband developed some neck pain and Mike provided a heating pad as well as some Salonpas, which helped. Beckett, their dog, was a bonus! She is well-behaved and available for play. The breakfasts were incredible and carried us to dinner most days. Nancy is an accomplished baker who willingly shared recipes and provided seconds for anyone who had room. We've stayed at many B and Bs and the Maple Leaf Inn is definitely one of our favorites!

A wonderful place with wonderful owners! Their attention to detail has you in awe. Words alone will not describe, you must experience this treasure.

Great inn near Killington in Vermont - Mike, Nancy and Beckett (the adorable dog!) were perfect hosts. If you are looking for a spot to unwind, have some great conversation and delicious breakfasts this spot is for you. It's out of the way - but a short jaunt to Woodstock.

This Inn was exceptional and exceeded all expectations. Nancy and Mike were wonderful hosts. Every little detail about the Inn is unique and perfect. From gourmet teas, hot chocolate, and coffee available at all times, along with biscotti, lovely chocolates, and fresh cookies, to the perfectly set fireplace that was ready to go each evening. Breakfasts were wonderful, the rooms were clean and cozy, and the amenities were great. Highly recommended!

Always a great place to rest and recharge. Lots of fun things to do in the area and lots of great places to eat locally. Nancy makes an amazing breakfast and everything is meticulously clean and organized.

Mike and Nancy have an amazing Inn and really do a great job ensuring that their guests have a great experience. The breakfasts are amazing as well as the cookies Nacy makes at the end of the day.

Beautiful place. Nancy, Mike & Beckett were gracious hosts with a sense of humor. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Wonderful, filling breakfasts..all those extra touches...wine served each evening with wonderful treats and a gift on our pillow each night.

This is an amazing place to stay, Mike and Nancy are both very friendly and the breakfasts are amazing. Each room has its own individual character and are the cleanest rooms I have ever stayed in. Highly recommend staying here

Great amenities, peaceful location. great dining down the street, close to the AT.

Personal and warm attention of the Innkeepers, almost as staying at a close friends home. Extreme care put into covering all the little and not so little details for a memorable experience.

very nice place to stay-enjoyed the breakfasts -the owners were very freiendly and accommodating.
4.6 on October 06, 2015
Mike and Nancy were outstanding hosts. We enjoyed our room, especially the fire that was prepared and ready to go. This was a very enjoyable Inn and we would recommend staying here. It has a nice central location to base your stay and explore Vermont. Woodstock is a nice little town to shop and eat. I believe we would stay here again if our travels bring us this way. The Inn is so nice, I would like to stay more than one night! During our travels we stayed at quite a few BB's and this was by far the nicest. Highly recommend!
5 on September 17, 2015
We really enjoyed very much our stay at Mapple Leaf. The place is remote but splendid and so peaceful. Mike and Nancy are wonderful hosts and the breakfasts are delicious. We wish we had stayed a bit longer...
5 on September 15, 2015
Nancy and Mike were wonderful hosts! Their home is beautiful, comfortable and well maintained! It has all of the comforts including a delicious breakfast, coffee and treats available 24/7 and a playful pup named Beckett. I loved rocking on the front porch enjoying the peace and solitude! We will definitely return!
5 on September 06, 2015
This place was great! Remote and calm. Beautiful room. What we enjoyed the most were the wonderful breakfasts and our discussions with our hosts Mike and Nancy. Highly recommended!
5 on September 02, 2015
My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at the maple leaf Inn! Nancy and Mike were amazing hosts and I loved their dog, Beckett! The rooms were beautiful and they always left a little something special on your pillows. They even remembered my birthday and put a candle in my breakfast scone and sang to me! We will definitely return their on our next trip! It was a beautiful experience!
5 on September 01, 2015
WE spent 4 nights at this inn during our visite to the States from France . Excellent stay in a charming setting and very well looked after . Wonderful breakfasts !
4.6 on August 27, 2015
This was our first stay at the Inn. We have never experienced such a friendly and beautiful environment in the many years that we've travelled to small hotels and B&Bs. The hosts were exceptionally attentive in every way. The Inn is in such a beautiful wooded area with an expansive lawn facing their wraparound porch. Our room was immaculate and our breakfast each morning for our 3 night stay was stupendous. I cannot say enough here to get the message across that this is a must stay for anyone wanting to stay in Vermont. The Inn is set away from the country road so that you feel as though you are surrounded by woods, yet the walk to charming Silver Lake and the general store is about a quarter of a mile. We will be returning here for our Vermont stays. No need to look further for a perfect, bucolic experience.
4.8 on August 26, 2015
The above ratings should say it all! This Inn completely changed my opinion--based on previous experiences with other b&bs--to the positive.
5 on August 21, 2015
This was our fifth or sixth visit to the Maple Leaf Inn. Mike and Nancy never disappoint. Rather, they anticipate our every need and get things done properly and perfectly. It is clean and quiet and close to Silver Lake, walking, hiking, dining and shopping in Woodstock. Nancy even offered to let me borrow her clothes as my suitcase was inadvertently left behind! The breakfast is delicious, heart and varies each day. You won't walk away hungry.The library is filled with interesting reading and there are bicycles to borrow. But just sitting on the front porch enjoying a complimentary wine or beer is just what we love to do!
4.8 on August 18, 2015
Great place to stay to get away from everything . The owners were outstanding.
4.8 on August 17, 2015
My wife and I had strong sentimental reasons for returning to Barnard. Unfortunately, we could only stay one night before returning home to Philadelphia. Fortunately, we made a reservation at the Maple Leaf Inn where we could not have been more comfortably received in every way. On our next return to Barnard, we will definitely plan on staying longer to enjoy all that the Inn and its accommodating owners offer.
5 on August 14, 2015
My wife and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary there for 3 days and will always cherish the memories. Mike and Nancy were most gracious hosts and the breakfast were phenomenal! Will be going back again with friends next year and can't wait.
4.6 on August 12, 2015
a most pleasant way to experience an anniversary
4.6 on July 25, 2015
We arrived at 3:00 PM, were greeted immediately by Mike, Nancy and Beckett (their Pitty-English Bulldog mixed breed) and immediately felt at home. Nancy's breakfasts are inspired, local dining (starting with the Barnard Inn 1/2 mile away) is great, and we loved being there. We are recommending this Inn to all our friends.
5 on June 22, 2015
The Maple Leaf Inn was the perfect place to rest and relax during a busy wedding weekend. Thanks Mike and Nancy for a lovely stay!
4.2 on May 22, 2015
Lovely, restful location with quick access (for Vermont) to Woodstock and the Vermont Law School. Breakfasts were delicious. The hosts, gracious. Mary from Cape Cod
4.8 on March 26, 2015
We immediately felt at home and loved waking up, knowing the incredible breakfast we were about to enjoy. The house was cozy and filled with interesting books, games, and movies so you didn't feel bad hanging out and truly relaxing. Definitely going back again.
5 on March 25, 2015
The innkeepers Mike and Nancy greeted us upon arrival. We were given a tour of the inn and details about breakfast times. We asked for recommendations for dinner and locations for local cheese producers. We were given options for both and also were asked if we would like reservations made for us. Mike and Nancy were willing to go the extra mile to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Meeting their dog Beckett was an added bonus. She was just as friendly as Mike and Nancy! The room was a perfect retreat after a long day of shopping and sightseeing. Some quiet time in front of the fire and relaxing later in the whirlpool tub in the room melted away the stress for sure. We will be certain to stay at the Maple Leaf Inn on our next trip to Woodstock and will gladly recommend it to our friends as well. Stayed March 2015, traveled as a couple
5 on March 16, 2015
We decided to stay at the Maple Leaf Inn in early February and we absolutely loved it! It was such a quaint place not too far away from attractions, along with offering us a beautiful room equipped with a fireplace and whirpool tub. The owners were incredibly welcoming and the breakfast was delicious and enough to fill you for a good portion of the day. We had such a great time and will definitely go back again soon!
5 on March 08, 2015
After a long day at work at Vermont Law School this was the perfect place to stay. It was close by, extremely clean, and Mike and Nancy were excellent hosts. Definitely will make sure I stay here again soon.
4.8 on March 07, 2015
This is a lovely property. We really enjoyed the in-room fireplace and the delicious breakfast. The Boyles are very accommodating hosts.
5 on March 03, 2015
My husband and I stayed at the Maple Leaf Inn for the second year in a row and can't speak highly enough of our visit. Mike and Nancy are so welcoming and the room we booked (Winter's Haven) was beautiful. We are already looking forward to our next visit next winter!
5 on February 24, 2015
Where never stay anywhere else. Truly lovely!!
4.8 on February 11, 2015
We went here for our two year anniversary and had a lovely time.Nancy and Mike were wonderful! They made sure we were comfortable, made a lovely breakfast and gave good suggestions about where to eat/what to do in Woodstock. We can't wait to go back and get to spend some more time in the beautiful area.
5 on January 27, 2015
This was our third stay in "Winter Haven". It is our heaven on earth. The Maple Leaf Inn is the most relaxing, pristine place we've stayed in. The food is out of this world. Mike and Nancy are the most attentive, gracious people we've met. They pay attention to every little detail. The location is great for us....the VAST trails are right out the back door. The Inn even has room to park our snowmobile trailer. Their newest addition, Beckett, is so sweet and friendly. She fills the void of having to leave our own dogs at home. We look forward to next year... Mike and Laurie
5 on January 27, 2015
It was a fabulous weekend! Peaceful and relaxing. Exceeded every expectation. Can't wait to return.
5 on January 21, 2015
Our experience in May 2014 was so good, we came back and we will return again & again. On a scale of 1 to 10, I score this property an 11 across the board. The most expensive and luxurious 5 star resorts should be studying Mike & Nancy
4.2 on January 06, 2015
Nancy and Mike get all the details just right!
5 on January 06, 2015
We searched and searched and boy did we pick the right place. Quiet, very clean, great breakfast, close to some nice attractions. Thanks Mike and Nancy. We will be back. K & N
5 on December 30, 2014
We had an incredible time. The friendliness, cleanliness, and service were immaculate! We are already planning our trip to see you again next year. Thank you for creating such an incredible atmosphere and experience. This was our first B&B experience and The Maple Leaf Inn has definitely set the bar extremely high!
4.2 on December 01, 2014
My wife and I went for our anniversary and stayed 3 days at the beginning of November. The area was quiet because it is the off season but that just means you don't have to fight the crowds. The Maple Leaf was very clean and inviting. Both Mike and Nancy are very nice and make you feel right at home, even if you've never stayed at a bed and breakfast and aren't familiar with how things work. After doing lots of research of where to stay I kept coming back to The Maple Leaf. Come to find out it's also my parents favorite place as well. Breakfast is served as a 3 course meal, and is more on the healthy side BUT everything was either good or delicious. The sheets on the bed are amazing (you can purchase them, we sure did). Nice ride up the mountain from town (maybe 10 mins) and and is tucked back in the woods away from the main road so it's quiet. We will definitely be going back.
5 on November 25, 2014
A treasure of a site--we discovered Maple Leaf about 5 years ago and come back each year for a longer period of time. The setting is spectacular, the food is fabulous, and the Inn is amazingly comfortable. We've met interesting people and made life long friends with one couple from Oregon. Book it!
5 on November 19, 2014
My wife and I celebrated our 39th Wedding Anniversary at the Maple Leaf. Nancy and Mike were gracious hosts. Cuisine was excellent. The Inn`s accommodations were tranquil and in a relaxing country setting. Mike and Nancy were always available for any of our needs and made their home feel like your own. Nancy also discussed some of her baking techniques with my wife and also suggested a useful cookbook. They truly deserve The Select Registry Status which they have acquired. We wish them all the best and hope to see them in the near future. J & R

The maple Leaf Inn's website is what drew me to them. I am so glad that I booked it because the pictures really were spot on! The house was clean, warm and inviting and the interior design was above par. The owners were wonderful people and made me feel very welcome in their home. I would definitely go back again!
5 on November 10, 2014
Between the calm and peacefulness and the beauty of the area , it doesn't get any better. This was stay no 3 and as usual it was wonderful- food was great and wholesome at breakfast and hospitality was splendid - we shall return !
5 on October 22, 2014
This was our 4th stay at the Maple Leaf Inn and all we can say is it gets better each time. If you are looking for romance, or to just get away for a relaxing time away from the "grind", the Maple Leaf Inn has it all. Nancy and Mike are just wonderful hosts and people. They are friendly and accommodating. Beckett is a great addition to the "family". This is a quintessential Vermont B & B at it's best. Set back almost 1/4 mile from the road, it is quiet, peaceful and very dark at night. You can actually remember what stars look like! We've tried many B & B's through the Northeast, but we always come back to this one. The attention to detail is amazing...from the rooms to the food. You can sit downstairs in the late afternoon and enjoy some cookies and wine or some tea and mingle with other guests. Or you can just enjoy the beauty of the area on your own. Plenty of things to do and places to eat in nearby towns. Thanks again for a wonderful stay. See you next time.
5 on October 19, 2014
Perfection is the rule not the exception at,MAPLE LEAF. Nancy and Mike make every effort to fulfill all wishes.

Secluded quiet inn within easy driving distance to most of Vermont's must see venues. Have stayed at many B&Bs during the last 20 years and this rates as one of the best
4.6 on October 05, 2014
The Maple Leaf Inn is simply lovely. This inn is set way back from the road, and very private, so if you choose a room in the front of the house, you will not even notice any cars traveling on the road. The location of this inn gives one a feeling of true relaxtion, with many rocking chairs on their wrap around porch, and allowing nightly campfires on the property. Our room "Summer" was nicely decorated, with a real woodburning fireplace, something you don't see to often. The bed was very comfortable. They provide a VERY delicious 3 course country breakfast, and are very generous often asking guest if they would like 2nd's and even 3rd's. Nancy's waffles are probably the best I ever had. All sorts of very good chocolates are left in common areas, as well leaving even better chocolates in your room as a nice surprise upon your return. I enjoyed our stay very much, and will likely return.
4.6 on September 23, 2014
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Maple Leaf Inn. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable, especially the fire to warm the morning. Everything you might need for a stay (library, piano, relaxing areas and breakfast) was here. We will come again.
5 on September 17, 2014
Once again the Inn keepers Mike and Nancy at the Maple Leaf Inn go above and beyond for their patrons. From warm cookies upon arrival to a classic glass of wine in the late afternoon they are always ready and willing to server. The breakfasts are outstanding and Nancy is more than willing to accommodate any food allergy issues. The Inn's setting is in a beautiful Vermont setting. The drive along North Road to the Inn boasts of panoramic breath taking views of Killington. The approach up the driveway to the Inn speaks to you that you are about to enter a very enchanting place. Worth every penny.
5 on September 14, 2014
We drove all the way from PA for our second visit to this wonderful Inn. If you like spotless well appointed spacious rooms, friendly hosts, a beautiful setting, fabulous breakfasts, and many special touches, the Maple Leaf Inn is waiting for you!
5 on September 09, 2014
We just got back from a two night stay at the Maple Leaf Inn. It was wonderful. Mike was ever the gracious host and Nancy's cooking is to die for. Our room was spotless and charming. The bed was the softest I've ever slept in. We can't wait to get back there again.
4.6 on September 04, 2014
Had a great time. Lovely hosts.
4.8 on September 03, 2014
Wonderful and peaceful B&B in the heart of Vermont. Walk to Silver Lake. minutes from Woodstock, Quechee, and South Royalton.
5 on August 24, 2014
If you like quiet places with a taste of being spoiled, you will love this place. Our room was one of the best we have had in an Inn. Spacious, comfortable, plenty of closet and storage space and spotlessly clean. Our meals were beautiful and tasty. They accommodated diet issues once we explained our needs. I noticed several different dietary issues being addressed at each meal. I think she cooked vegan, gluten free and diabetic meals at the same time , along with the normal menu . We so enjoyed visiting with the other guests at mealtime and while rocking on the front porch. Bennett the pup is a delight. Bennett saved us all from a bear (so she thought) by barking loudly as the bear ran through the yard one afternoon. Barnard is a nice escape at the end of a day spent in the crowded towns of Woodstock, Quechee and other places. There is a wonderful restaurant close to the inn, so you don't have to go back to town for dinner. And the country store has sandwiches and snacks. My only suggestion would be to do something about more accessibility to the Inn. The Handicap ramp is a LOOOOOONNG way from the parking lot . The ground and sidewalk are uneven. Maybe a couple of parking spaces to the right of the porch, near that entrance to the porch, close to the building. Fix those steps so that they have the shorter rise. We loved this place and will find a way to return!!
4.8 on August 23, 2014
A beautiful inn, immaculately maintained, with individual, and romantic. rooms in one of Vermont's most beautiful areas. Lots to do in immediate area, but also a great hub point for longer day trips. Fabulous breakfasts.
5 on August 20, 2014
Best B and B we have seen in many years. Everything perfect and the owners were great. Will definitely stay here again.
4.8 on August 13, 2014
We had stayed in bed and breakfasts before, but they were old inns without the amenities this inn had. We much prefer the modern comforts, as the Maple Leaf Inn has. The bathrooms are lovely, the bedding luxurious, and the breakfast excellent. I can't think of anything I could improve upon. I watched the hummingbirds feeding just outside the breakfast room windows. Three days was too short. We will be back, and hope to swim at Silver Lake, and maybe take a spin on the bicycles that were available for guests use. Mike and Nancy were congenial hosts.
5 on August 12, 2014
We had an absolutely wonderful time with Mike, Nancy and Beckett. We enjoyed "front porch sittin' " with hot tea and coffee every morning. We even managed to do some "sittin" after we visited the Marsh-Billings Farm, tasted Maple Syrup and local Vermont cheese, visited King Arthur Flour and toured the covered bridges in the area. Every morning we enjoyed another "Mikeism" comment. Mike and Nancy made our stay outstanding! Beckett was the icing on the cake!!
4.8 on August 02, 2014
This B and B was incredibly comfortable, and the small touches made the stay more relaxing than we could've hoped for. Mike and Nancy were incredible hosts, and the breakfast was to die for! I'm a vegan, and they happily made arrangements for that, as well as helped phone local restaurants to figure out what vegan options were on the dinner menus. We were very happy with our stay and will definitely return.
5 on July 26, 2014
I highly recommend this place. It's an easy drive to Woodstock, a quiet retreat, and a short walk to the Silver Lake "swimming hole". A few guests stayed over three nights, using Maple Leaf as a base for exploring the area: Stowe, Montpelier, Burlington, etc. I wish I'd done the same and plan to do so in the future.
4.8 on July 14, 2014
Our entire stay was delightful from start to finish. Every detail was attended to- beautiful rooms, delicious food and attentive hosts.

And a lovely couple as host. Most comfortable bed on our ten day trip through New England! Looked back on it longingly as our trip progressed.
4.8 on May 20, 2014
We stayed here for a graduation at the vermont law school and we were pleasantly surprised. Mike & nancy were so accommodating and helpful with getting around the area. The rooms were very nice. We may have to make another trip back to spend more time and would definitely stay at the maple leaf inn.
5 on May 12, 2014
We stayed here for five nights, from May 4th to the 9th. Mike and Nacy were wonderful from the beginning to the end. The hospitality, friendliness and service were outstanding. This was our first visit to a B and B and we were very pleasantly surprised. The room and bed were very comfortable and the breakfasts were incredible. We definitely hope to return again. Thank You. George & Linda Mueller
5 on March 30, 2014
My husband and I recently stayed at the Maple Leaf Inn for two nights and we could not have asked for a better getaway. The hospitality and warm welcome we received from Mike and Nancy made us feel right at home. We will certainly be staying with them again soon!
5 on February 09, 2014
clean, comfortable, and most enjoyable
4.8 on January 18, 2014
This was our second visit and we enjoyed it as much as we did the first time. Mike and Nancy are hospitable hosts and provide a homey, very clean and comfortable place to stay, and a wonderful breakfast to boot.
5 on January 05, 2014
Wonderful in every way. Nancy & Mike were amazing hosts, the food was fabulous, the extras (cookies & chocolate and wine!) were great, and the rooms were spacious and updated with high quality bedding and towels. Radiant heat in the bathroom floors, robes and the kids loved the gifts they received on the pillows each night. Would stay here over and over again.
4.0 on January 05, 2014
The Maple Leaf Inn exactly what my husband and I were looking for! The Innkeepers were friendly, personable and caring. The Inn was clean, beautiful and luxurious. We felt at ease, comfortable and very well taken care of during our stay. Thank you very much!
5 on January 02, 2014
It's a so wonderful place to stay in during a getaway trip in Vermont. Best room and service! The breakfast is so delicious. The most valuable thing is Nancy and Mike already provided all the details the clients could possibly need.
5 on November 30, 2013
This was the second time we stayed here. I can't say enough good things about the owners, the food, the rooms and the surroundings...highly recommend!!
4.6 on November 26, 2013
Choosing the Maple Leaf Inn for my girlfriend's and I one year anniversary proved to be an absolutely wonderful decision. Mike and Nancy are such gracious hosts who really make you feel at home in their beautiful inn. We stayed in the Winter Haven room which has a two-person whirlpool tub - perfect for cold Vermont winter nights. The 3 course breakfast was delicious and served in a great dining space. All around excellent. Hope to be back soon
5 on November 17, 2013
This is truly a five star inn. The rooms were fabulous with the softest sheets I have ever slept on along with the heated bathroom floor. Nancy and Mike couldn't have made our stay any nicer. Breakfast in the cozy breakfast nook was absolutely delicious each morning. The little extras on our pillows at night welcomed us "home" after being out exploring each day. It was like visiting old friends although we had never met them before. It was a wonderful experience.
5 on November 12, 2013
Outstanding hardly describes our experience at the Maple Leaf. From the moment we arrived until we left our experience was nothing less then top notch. Mike and Nancy are a warm, welcoming, delightful couple who go out of their way to accommodate your every need. The cozy spotless rooms and gourmet delights plus the added little extras one finds in their room just add to the ambiance. Can't wait to return! Highly recommend this Inn!
5 on November 07, 2013
Mike and Nancy made our repeat stay just wonderful yet again! We couldn't ask for better accomodations and certainly not better food! The setting of the inn helps one relax yet is only minutes from Woodstock and other locations. We can't wait to return and enjoy this wonderful inn.
4.6 on November 06, 2013
Our visit at Maple Leaf Inn was perfect. The whole weekend nothing went wrong. Mike and Nancy greeted us warmly with a nice glass of wine just in time for happy hour. We sat on the porch with a warm blanket wrapped around us as we enjoyed our wine. Then it was off to dinner. Nancy and Mike called in a reservation for us just down the road. The inn was beautiful and clean. The service was excellent. The three course breakfast was delicious. We were just minutes from Woodstock and Sugarbush Farm. We had a great visit and will most definitely look forward to another trip to Maple Leaf Inn.
5 on October 29, 2013
My husband and I spend 2 lovely days with Mike & Nancy in their cozy and delicious B & B! We felt like we were staying with friends! The bed and bedding were dreamy and having a wood burning fire to fall asleep to was perfect! The freshly baked goodies and coffee/tea/hot chocolate bar were a nice treat on a blustery afternoon. You will not want to leave:) Nice job Mike & Nancy!
5 on October 28, 2013
Every other B&B will pale in comparison to the Maple Leaf Inn. Nancy and Mike are hosts extrodinaire. Room was spacious, clean, beautifully decorated. Amazing attention to detail, from heated floors and free phone service to gifts left on our pillows each night. Breakfasts were delicious. My husband has a gluten allergy and even though we did not inform her in advance, Nancy was able to accommodate him with fresh baked cookies, muffins, pancakes, etc. He was in heaven. We had a wonderful stay.
5 on October 26, 2013
Mine was an impromptu visit, spur of the moment decision to travel up to Vermont and I only stayed one night. Still, Nancy and Mike made me as welcome as if I was staying the week. They were so kind and thoughtful, asking if I needed anything, making suggestions to make my stay more pleasant, sincere in their desire to see I wanted for nothing. The bedroom was pleasant and comfortable, the bed comfy and sheets so soft, what a delight! Breakfast was delicious, and again, Mike and Nancy made sure I had plenty to eat and that it was all beyond my satisfaction. We had a lovely chat about Vermont, pets, and the various experiences with both. A short stay, to be sure, but I'd stay with them again without hesitation. Absolutely lovely.
5 on October 23, 2013
This B&B is absolute perfection. You can appreciate the love and dedication that Mike and Nancy put on this place from the moment you walk in. Every detail will make you feel you have never been in a better B&B or hotel than the Maple Leaf Inn. Their AMAZING breakfast will make you forget you have to eat again until late afternoon. The room is beautiful and immaculate. The bed - OMG! Absolutely comfortable. It makes it so difficult to get up in the morning, but then again an extraordinary breakfast is waiting for you downstairs and you DON'T want to miss that! Peace, warmth and first-class quality is what you will find at the Maple Leaf Inn. Can't wait to return with the family soon.
5 on October 22, 2013
We recently celebrated our 10th Anniversary and wanted to spend a long romantic weekend together. The MapleLeaf Inn was superb. Mike & Nancy were fantastic hosts. The house is cozy & pretty; we spent 3 nights. Nancy's breakfasts were delicious and the fall setting provided a lovely backdrop to our weekend. Day trips in the surrounding area of Quechee and Woodstock provided plenty of interesting places to explore. Highly recommend!
5 on October 19, 2013
We cannot praise the Maple Leaf Inn highly enough. It was the highlight of our 3 week tour of New Engand. The innkeepers Mike and Nancy are the perfect hosts, warm, friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. Our room was beautifully decorated, exceptionally clean with a very comfortable bed and lovely soft sheets. Nancy's gourmet breakfasts are not only delicious but well balanced and nutritious, setting you up for the day. After returning from our day of sightseeing Mike and Nancy were on hand to welcome us back with tea and cakes or wine and cheese, while making dinner reservations for us if required. The Inn is well placed for exploring Vermont while enjoying the peace a quite of a country location. If you are thinking of booking a room at the Maple Leaf Inn, do not hesitate, you will not be disappointed!
5 on October 13, 2013
We felt completely spoiled at the Maple Leaf. We could not have asked for anything more. Our room was beautiful - a wonderfully comfortable bed with absolutely the most luxurious sheets I've ever slept in. The breakfasts were outstanding and the added afternoon treats (cookies, wine or beer, cheese & crackers) were wonderful. Mike & Nancy were great hosts - always greeting us as we came and went. They were always checking on what we needed and that we knew where we were going. A wonderful place to stay - all future vacations will be compared to the Maple Leaf standard. We will definitely return!

A beautiful location and Nancy and Mike are exceptional hosts. They both go beyond what we have ever experienced at a B & B. The service and breakfasts were amazing. It was a pleasure to spend a few days at their Inn !

Upon arrival in parking area inn owner Mike Boyle came out to greet us and carry our bags into the inn and upstairs to our room. Upon check out he carried our luggage to our car. In between we were treated to impeccable service, a large very tastefully furnished bedroom with high thread count, luxurious sheets with elegant comforter; a large tiled bath; and very comfortable common areas. Well stocked refrigerator in common linen closet; excellent yogurt and fresh berries followed by pumpkin pancakes for breakfast. Located about eight hundred feet into the woods off a quiet rural road. Good restaurants are within easy driving distance. My wife and I recommend The Maple Leaf Inn without reservation. We had a wonderful stay. Met wonderful guests as well. Pete from Boston

My wife and I spent two nights there last week during a tour with friends (including my wife's twin sister) through upper New England. The innkeepers, Nancy & Mike, did everything we could have asked to make our stay enjoyable. We were greeted every time we returned to the Inn after an outing or any time we came down from our room. The place was spotless and, despite a terrible thunderstorm that knocked out power all over the area, their generators kept the place going like nothing happened,. The breakfasts both mornings were wonderfully prepared and served. I hope you enjoy a stay here as much as we did.
5 on September 17, 2013
Mike and Nancy made our weekend a perfect getaway. They are very warm and friendly and pay attention to every detail to make your stay an outstanding experience. We celebrated our 15th anniversary at the Maple Leaf Inn and it was as relaxing as could be. We look forward to our next stay at the inn.
5 on September 07, 2013
This was our first bed and breakfast experience and I have to say Nancy and Mike's hospitality blew us away! They catered to our every need, made us feel like family, and we really didn't want to leave when it was time. The accommodations were top shelf. Our room was pristine. The personal touches including chocolates at the bedside at night and the complimentary glass of wine to enjoy on the porch or out in the yard while watching the deluge of hummingbirds that must love the property as much as everybody else! The breakfasts were to die for and Nancy would accommodate any special food needs of the guests. Well I could go on forever but what I will say is thank you Nancy and Mike for making our first bed and breakfast experience so amazing. We can't wait to return (and we'll bring our friends) and visit you again! Kathy and Bob LaPlante, CT

We have just spent a wonderful week at the Maple Leaf Inn, Nancy and Mike Boyle are extraordinary innkeepers. Their freindliness and helpfulness was wonderful. The meals were delicious and unique.
4.6 on August 26, 2013
Upon our arrival at the idyllic Maple Leaf Inn, Nancy offered my husband freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies and offered me freshly-baked wheat-free cinnamon chip cookies. We enjoyed a glass of complimentary wine on the front porch with another couple who were also guests. After our return from dinner, we borrowed a movie we'd been wanting to see from the extensive library (both DVDs and books), and had a great night's sleep. In the morning, we had a delicious meal, including home-made wheat- and dairy- free bread for me, and Nancy planned an egg dish that did not have my other allergen, bell peppers. The home was cozy but professional, the service and hospitality was warm and friendly, the food was fantastic, and the surroundings really could not be beaten. We can't wait to return!
5 on August 16, 2013
Nancy and Mike were the perfect hosts. Really, they welcomed us as if we were family and our accommodations couldn't have been more comfortable, or the breakfast more delicious. Our travel schedule permitted just a one-night stay, but the next time we visit the area, we will plan for a several-night stay at the Maple Leaf Inn. .
5 on June 20, 2013
My husband and I had a great weekend at the Maple Leaf Inn. We enjoyed going to the Quechee Balloon Festival, and walking along the Quechee Gorge. We had two exceptional breakfasts and two of the most peaceful nights ever. There is nothing I can think of that would have made our stay any better. Mike and Nancy have thought of every detail to make their guests never want to leave!
5 on June 20, 2013
We were not prepared for the superb accommodations, thoughtfulness, breakfast feast and impeccable quality at every level of detail that Mike and Nancy provide. We cannot imagine a better place to stay -- and the exceptional value it offers. This will most assuredly be our "new home" during future trips to visit family in VT. Kathy and Bob
5 on June 12, 2013
Nancy and Mike came out to warmly greet us as we arrived and helped with our bags...we stayed in the "Country Garden" room which was just perfect...first floor..very private - king-size comfy bed.. big bathroom - their home is classicly lovely but with all modern amenities. The property is quite beautiful - serene - quiet. The food was delicious as well. Nancy and Mike make you feel like "old friends" coming back for a visit to their home...cannot say enough.. Thank You!!
5 on May 30, 2013
We stayed two nights on a miserable cold weekend at the end of May. We were ecastatic to have found such a cozy nook with so much charm, but also modern ammenities (wi-fi, etc.) Breakfast was amazing (the lightest, fluffiest muffins ever), the innkeepers' recommendations for dinner and sites completely on-target for our desires, and the bath unbeatable (I took three in under 60 hours onsite). Even our sheets were a delight. We booked a weekend for next year before we left.
4.8 on May 28, 2013
I was lucky enough to stay at the Maple Leaf while on business this May. Nancy and Mike were such kind and lovely people! It was clear from the minute you walked in the door how they put their heart and soul into the Inn. Not only was the location ideal, the Inn charming, and the service top notch, the breakfast each morning was unbelievable! I'm still dreaming about the stuffed french toast :)
5 on May 17, 2013
Had a wonderful, relaxing time. Nancy and Mike make you feel like family and couldn't do more to make our stay the best. Great breakfasts and lovely B&B in a beautiful setting.
5 on May 08, 2013
This was our second stay at the Inn and it was just as enjoyable as our first stay. Looking forward to our next stay.
5 on March 19, 2013
Everything was perfect, once again, at the Maple Leaf Inn! Nancy and Mike are wo wonderful innkeepers. Always keeping the guest happy and well fed!
5 on March 14, 2013
We stayed at the Maple Leaf inn March 5 an 6. The room was large and beautifull and the service was 5 stars.
5 on February 19, 2013
Do NOT miss a chance to stay in this lovely inn. The rooms and common areas are lovely -- comfortable, clean, cozy, and inviting. It felt more like a 5 star hotel but with really nice people running the show: Nancy and Mike are wonderful. The breakfast was delicious and the grounds are gorgeous. If you get a chance go for a walk or snowshoe behind the inn.
4.8 on February 18, 2013
Maple Leaf Inn is a wonderful B&B. Mike and Nancy make you feel like family. Warm , friendly and very charming this is our third stay at Maple Leaf Inn. We look forward to our next visit and until then will miss the amazing breakfast Nancy prepared each and every morning.
5 on February 17, 2013
Nancy and Mike were great hosts. They treated us to terrific breakfasts, and they were very helpful with reservations for dinner at two outstanding local restaurants. The inn. located in central Vt., made it easy to get around.
5 on January 29, 2013
Maple Leaf Inn is one of those rare places where everything you'd want in a stay away from home is provided. For one thing, it feels like home! That's in no small way because of the hospitality of the owners, Mike and Nancy. They treat you like old friends from the moment you arrive until the moment you depart. They're always available and willing to help with any question or problem you might have. That's a hard quality to maintain at a B&B where so many different people pass through that many hosts might cool off a bit over time. Then there's the quality and comfort of the inn itself. It's got that old country house feel...... but it's built to modern standards. All of the contemporary amenities are there and they are all maintained to perfection. Fireplaces are prepared for use every evening. Breakfasts prepared by Nancy and Mike are amazingly good, creative, and filling. If you need something special they will go to great lengths to accommodate. In addition there are always great cookies, etc waiting to catch your attention at the foot of the stairs throughout the day. The location in the Vermont countryside is hard to beat. In winter there is a long-distance snow mobile trail that passes behind the inn and allows for long hikes or even x-country ski expeditions through the "backcountry" snow. Although we haven't stayed there in warmer seasons, the location also seems good for touring the great Vermont landscape by bike or whatever mode of transportation you choose. This is one of the best B&Bs we've stayed in. A large part of that is because of the care and enthusiasm of Mike and Nancy and the little ways they make it special. Nothing like having the snow cleaned off your car from the previous night's snowfall!

My wife and I hadn't been away just the two of us for years and had never stayed at a bed and breakfast in Vermont. Started looking way ahead of time for reservations but many were already full. Mike and Nancy were just who we needed, not to mention the lovely inn itself. The inn is beautifully set back from the road only 10 minutes from Woodstock. Nicely lit at night. We were greeted each time we entered from an excursion but had plenty of quiet time as well. The gormet breakfasts were out of this world, loved the 24 hour coffee tea station, Comfy sheets, heated bathroom floor, whirlpool, in room fireplace and so many more little things that were icing on the cake. Why go anywhere else? Thank you for an unforgettable weekend. We will be there again!
5 on January 05, 2013
Our first time staying at Maple Leaf Inn and we cannot say enough nice things about our experience. What a great place to be snowed in!! Everything was beyond expectation: food, meals, soft terry robes, heated bathroom floor, soft linens, wood-burning fireplace ... I could go on and on! Innkeepers even made extra effort to fix gluten-free selections that were also tasty. Will be back!
5 on January 02, 2013
My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Maple Leaf Inn. It is an impeccable inn located in a beautiful bucolic seeting in Vermont. The rooms are spacious and well appoointed and the breakfast is spectacular. The innkeepers, Mike and Nancy, are what really make the Maple Leaf Inn a special place. They are warm, inviting and personable. The are very knowledgeable about the area and do all the little things to make your stay memorable.
5 on January 01, 2013
What a wonderful place to escape the hetic lives we live as firefighter/Paramedics! Mike and Nancy make sure every detail is perfected to pamper their guests. They made accomodations for our late arrival due to a snowstorm and for our trailer & snowmobiles. The food, snacks, beverages, and room (Winter Haven-appropriatly named for our December stay) were fantastic. The Inn is in pristeen condition and unbelievably comfortable. A special thank you to the best Innkeepers! Mike and Laurie, Florida, MA

We were fortunate enough to get a room at the Maple Leaf Inn the weekend just prior to Christmas. Not only is the Inn itself amazing, the property, the atmosphere and most of all the Innkeeeper(s) Nancy & Mike, were warm, welcoming and could not be more accommodating. It was a wonderful respite and a drastic contradiction to the hussle and bustle that was going on all over the country in preparation for the holiday. Our room was beautiful, with a fireplace and all the amenities one could want, not to mention a huge "family" breakfast in the morning. A "MUST GO"!!
5 on December 05, 2012
My wife and I spent the last four nights of our Vermont honeymoon at the Maple Leaf. Everything was perfect, beautiful, and impressive, but most especially the service deserves a mention. There were a handful of little things that really set Nancy and Mike apart from the rest of the crowd. They'll do anything for their guests, even before it's asked. We love the place, and we're definitely going back some day.
5 on November 19, 2012
I can't say enough about how hospitable the owners are..from the goodies left in our room to Nancy's fabulous breakfasts...the sheets on the bed were great...the rooms tastefully decorated...everything is wonderful...not far from many restaurants and neighboring towns...was just a great way to spend our 25th Anniversary and we will return ...loved it -highly recommend !!
5 on November 18, 2012
We have stayed at the Maple Leaf twice and look forward to more visits in the future. Wonderful rural location not far from Woodstock, VT. Charming rooms, delicious breakfasts carefully prepared and beautifully presented. Mike and Nancy are focused on providing the most comfortable and accommodating service possible.
5 on November 14, 2012
My husband and I were looking for a cozy, relaxed weekend in Vermont, and the Maple Leaf Inn gave us exactly what we were looking for! The house is beautiful, and our room (we stayed in the Autumn Woods room) was the retreat we needed! The working wood fireplace in the room was made up for us to have fires every night and really made the cozy, comfy evenings we wanted to have. Nancy and Mike are amazing hosts, ready with recommendations and to make reservations, or just to chat! They are warm and friendly, and Nancy is a killer cook! The breakfasts she made were delicious and exactly what you wanted on a cool November morning! Don't miss this amazing Vermont B&B - we're already looking at our calendar to see when we can go back! We can't wait!
5 on October 24, 2012
It had been a long standing desire of my wife to see Vermont in the fall, so as a surprise I made reservations at The Maple Leaf Inn. We could not have asked for a more pleasant get away. Mike and Nancy are absolutely great. If we had a need for anything at all Mike and Nancy were more than helpful. We cannot wait wait to get back. It won't be like we're taking another vacation to Vermont, more like we're dropping in on old friends.
5 on October 23, 2012
This is a wonderful place to stay in Vermont. The breakfasts are fantastic. They are very accommodating to vegetarians and gluten free friendly which is a major plus in my book. Our room was reasonably priced and very spacious.
5 on October 19, 2012
Thank you Mike and Nancy for a wonderful WONDERFUL four nights at your beautiful inn! Not a detail is overlooked and the beauty of the place, the area and the season is only enhanced further by your hospitality. It was my personal dream come true to visit Vermont and it was all I hoped for thanks to you both! We were spoiled and doubt that anyone can beat the exquisite breakfasts, fabulous warmth and hospitality that you both offer. God Bless You both...it was amazing! Jim and Sylvia
5 on October 16, 2012
My wife and I totally enjoyed our stay at the Maple Leaf Inn, The facility was outstanding and the service was among the best we have enjoyed among many B&B stops.
4.8 on October 06, 2012
My husband and I lived in Vermont for three + years while he attended law school at VLS. We went to his reunion and stayed at Nancy & Mike's Maple Leaf Inn. What a treasure. As we lived in VT for a time, we knew the area well but had no idea this gem was there! The Maple Leaf Inn is what everyone envisions a Bed & Breakfast to be - spotless yet charming; inclusive but private; handy location to Woodstock, Norwich & South Royalton with Barnard and the charming Lake a worthy destination alone.
5 on October 03, 2012
The pictures are not overdone here. The inn and the grounds were absolutely gourgeous. The inn itself was immaculate. Our bed was very comfortable. We used the fireplace, which was ready to be lit. Very cozy. The breakfast was delicious. Mike and Nancy offer refreshments in the afternoon/evening and provide tips on the surrounding area and restaurants. TIP take the innkeepers suggestion on restaurants. They will not steer you wrong! And if you go to the Barnard Inn Tavern, taste the Switchback beer, delicious! In general, you will enjoy a B & B more if you are a social person. You will meet people from different areas and walks of life. If an Inn has more than one story, request an upstairs bedroom. You will hear the people above. And you are little more conscious about the noise you make since you are in a house not a hotel. Unfortunately, we were only staying for one night but we will be back. The area has plenty to do and the Maple Leaf Inn is a great center for your trip to Vermont. Mike and Nancy made us feel welcome and were very sweet.
5 on October 01, 2012
We had the best three night stay here! From the minute you pull in the drive and see the candles shining in the window, you will be spellbound. Mike and Nancy couldn't have been better hosts. The setting is magnificent, the house itself is breathtaking, and the service is impeccable. I cannot describe how delicious the breakfasts were. I wish Nancy would write a cookbook! There was not one thing I would ask to be improved. The beds and linens are heavenly. We built a fire every night and it was always rebuilt and ready to go the next night. We sat outside with our friends to talk and Nancy actually brought us warmed afghans to chase the chill away! The inn is as clean as you could ever hope for it to be (and then some!). Mike made reservations for us at restaurants and Nancy had homemade cookies available in the entry. I can only tell you that this is the bed and breakfast that you have looked for all of your life and never even hoped to find. Or if you had hoped, you had long ago given up the search. I could not recommend this inn more highly! Mike and Nancy Roach
5 on September 23, 2012
We used Nancy and Mike's hospitable B&B as a place to come home to after touring all of the attractions in and around Barnard and Woodstock. We even took one full day to drive to Mt. Washington in New Hampshire. We had a unique visit and enjoyed Nancy's breakfasts and Mike's serving. They are fantastic Innkeepers. Thanks Nancy and Mike.

My sister and I were visiting the State of Vermont and decided to try a new type of accommodation during our last night. We stayed at the Maple Leaf Inn after reviewing some of the previous reviews left by recent visitors. Boy were they right about this place! Although we only stayed for one day, Mike and Nancy definitely made it memorable. They were great hosts that made us feel right at home. The accommodations were lovely, clean and most importantly, comfortable. In addition, Nona, the family dog, was friendly and lovable. And I can't forget Nancy's breakfast, which was fresh and full of flavor! Overall, it was a great experience which my sister and I would definitely relive. Thanks again Mike and Nancy! You were great!
5 on September 12, 2012
Eleven of us descended on the Innkeepers Mike and Nancy for 3 days for a wonderful wedding weekend. Mike and Nancy were so nice and took our crazy schedules in stride, not to mention how helpful they were. They have thought of so many small details which made our time there beyond description. The bedding and beds were so comfortable, the food beyond delicious, and the atmosphere so "Vermont". Kudos to this couple and may they continue to have success. .
5 on September 04, 2012
Nancy & Mike are welcoming innkeepers, and all their extra touches make this a special place to stay.
4.6 on September 03, 2012
Nancy and Mike were the perfect hosts, kind, attentive and low key. A wonderful place to relax and unwind. The front porch is an ideal location for coffee, wine or daydreaming....I didn't want to leave! This was our first of many trips to come. We highly recommend The Maple Leaf Inn.
5 on August 13, 2012
What a wonderful and relaxing environment! Mike and Nancy made our stay enjoyable by paying attention to all the details; from the warm welcome, to the the scrumptious three course breakfast, to the daily treats on our bed pillows, and everything in between. If you are in the area this is the place to stay. Mary
5 on August 03, 2012
We have stayed in quite a few B and Bs from the Select Registry group and Maple Leaf Inn certainly met all of our expectations in terms of what a Select Registry inn should be. Mike and Nancy were warm and thoughtful innkeepers and our stay was perfectly comfortable. They pay attention to each and every detail to make the guests' experience as positive as possible.
5 on July 30, 2012
We enjoyed being close to Woodstock but in a quiet wooded spot. The porch was so relaxing and serene. Breakfast was fabulous. Mike and Nancy were so nice and helpful. They thought of everything from cookies to a glass of wine....the perfect retreat. We'd go back tomorrow if we could.
5 on July 03, 2012
My wife and I spent 3 nights at the Inn for our anniversary. Inn keepers Mike and Nancey are the most gracious hosts anyone could ask for; they anticipate your every need. The Inn itself is magnificent; a very comfortable resting spot after a long day of exploring Vermont. Well worth the rate. Thanks again Mike and Nancey.

4.8 on June 13, 2012
We had never been to a bed and breakfast before and did not know what to expect. It was wonderful - the ambiance, the room, the food and our hosts. The Maple Leaf Inn could not have been better and our hosts, Nancy and Mike were the best. Kudos!!!
5 on June 09, 2012
When you look online for a B&B in the Woodstock/Barnard area, or anywhere else, they all look great. But the Maple Leaf Inn really is great! Like another reviewer, my wife and I were there prior to the Covered Bridges Half Marathon and we could not have been more pleased with the cleanliness, hospitality, yummy breakfast or the facility itself. If you have any doubt at all about choosing one of the many places that look great online -- choose this one! You will be glad you did.
5 on June 03, 2012
Wow- The Maple Leaf Inn exceeded our expectations! My 3 friends and I stayed the night prior to a big local race and were so impressed by the cleanliness, beauty, and comfort of the inn. Mike and Nancy were so incredibly kind and willing to do anything to make our stay perfect-- baked treats, evening tea, local gifts in our room, a specialized pre race breakfast, even an enthusiastic offer to drive us to our race start. All 4 of us decided the next stay needs to be a longer one!!!
5 on May 23, 2012
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Maple Leaf Inn to family and friends. Mike and Nancy were very gracious hosts. If you're looking for peace and quiet in a tranquil environment-you will find it here.
5 on May 21, 2012
I was traveling on business and loved my stay. Mike and Nancy made us feel so welcome and the Inn was just beautiful. We are still talking abuot it! Thank you so much for everything!
5 on May 10, 2012
Awesome place. Stay here. We only spent 1 night at Maple Leaf, but my wife and wish it could've been longer. We live in NYC, 6 hours away, but we'll probably go back again soon. We got a full, helpful tour at check in (even though late at night). The decor is gorgeous - so much better than most cheesy B&Bs out there which oftern have a hodge-podge of furniture. Maple Leaf is beautiful and have tons of ammenities, like free cocktails each night, lending library, tons of movies, wi-fi, and more. The owners are genuinely nice and care about each guest and engage them. The breakfast was amazing, 3 courses served to us graciously. There are 2-person big tubs in the rooms. My wife felt like a princess there. the Morning Glory room is a stellar value for sure. We'll try others next time we go. This place is so well run. Check it out.
5 on March 23, 2012
I recently stayed at the Maple Leaf Inn with my girlfriend. The entire experience was wonderful. The inn is located in a very convenient spot to visit nearby attractions...eating, shopping, hiking etc...The breakfast prepared each morning was delicious, and Mike and Nancy were very welcoming and friendly. I have stayed at several B&B's throughout the U.S., and this is one of my top 3 favorites. I would definitely recommend staying here.
5 on February 19, 2012
Lisa My boyfriend and came up for a romantic weekend up in Vermont. From the moment we walked in Mike and Nancy were wonderful. We were greeted with Nancy's famous chocolate chip cookies which were wonderful. Nancy gave us a tour and every room was better than the other one. Mike took up to our room and it was beautiful. My boyfriend and I wanted to tie the bed to the car, we loved it that much. We said to each other the next day that did not want to get out of it. It was that comfortable!! Nancy you outdid yourself with the breakfasts everyday. They were fantastic and we are going to miss them. We enjoyed eating at two out of the three restaurants while we were there. The Prince and the Pauper and Bentley's were wonderful. Although the food the Barnard Inn was excellent the dog roaming through the dining room really ruined the evening for us. My boyfriend and would come back to The Maple Leaf Inn in a heartbeat!! Mike and Nancy Thank you for making our weekend so wonderful!!

The Autumn woods where we stayed was extremely cozy and clean. The inn keepers were very sweet, the extra care, selective little gifts they left in the room and the wonderful morning breakfast made it a pleasant stay. I have never enjoyed such an awesome breakfast ever. The knowledge of the inn keepers about the places around, the help they offered in guiding yes was really great. The library and the friendly Nola were also worth mentioning. A great gift for a getaway!
5 on January 30, 2012
What a combination! It starts with Nancy and Mike's warm welcome, along with a glass of wine and home made goodies; then there's the beautiful rooms with king size beds, fireplaces, jacuzzi's and radiant heat in the bathroom; and in the morning, gourmet breakfasts. Help yourself to tea and coffee at any time of day. Our visit in January 2012 continued our annual tradition, and we'll be bringing famiy from England with us for our next visit in the Fall. It's the best!
5 on January 24, 2012
This was our first visit to The Maple Leaf Inn and our experience was beyond compare. Mike and Nancy have thought about every little detail to make their guests feel welcome and comfortable. Rooms are clean and bright, breakfast was amazing, and all the little extras were a wonderful touch. The location was an added bonus as we were able to utilize the convenient trails for two great days of snow shoeing. We are already planning our next visit to The Maple Leaf Inn!
4.6 on January 10, 2012
At the last minute, my wife and I decided on an overnight in Vermont. We selected the Maple Leaf Inn after checking with Select Registry. The Inn was perfect. Mike and Nancy are caring and warm hosts. The room was immaculate, and the wood burning fire place was terrific. We could not have asked for better accomodations. Check in, you will not be disappointed

We stayed at M.L.I. from 12/19/11 - 12/22/11. This was our second stay at this beautiful B & B in Barnard, VT. We honestly cannot think of anything but positive things to stay about this place. The inn is absolutely immaculate with large, comfy rooms (most have fireplaces), radiant heat in the bathroom floors, the most comfortable bedding we have ever slept in, and beautifully decorated, cozy common areas. Mike & Nancy are wonderful innkeepers who truly make their guests feel at home. They have found the perfect balance - so helpful and attentive but never intrusive. Small details make a big impression- "gifts" on the pillows, chocolates & homemade cookies greet guests at the door, & complimentary wine or beer in the afternoon. We got engaged during our stay and found a lovely card congratulating us left on our bed that evening. They are also extremely helpful with finding local activities and dining spots. There are a wide variety of coffee and teas available 24 hours. A pantry upstairs contains a small fridge for guest use as well as some snacks and beverages. Nancy's three-course breakfasts are delicious! Something different every morning, sweet & savory, served with a smile. We have only been to the M.L.I. in the winter, which is beautiful, as this whole area of VT looks like something out of a Christmas postcard. We look forward to coming back as often as possible and enjoying each season. There is a large wraparound porch with rocking chairs as well as a firepit with adirondack chairs in the yard - must be great in the summertime! Highly recommended!
4.8 on December 19, 2011
Mike and Nancy are welcoming innkeepers and they share their home with open arms. The rooms are airy and each one is unique. The charm is quaint and made to feel old fashioned but all the amenities are current as this Inn was custom built not even 20 years ago. Mike and Nancy are easy going and friendly and their senior dog Nona is a pleasure. The rooms are immaculate, the food great and the location quite serene. And in the nice weather we can sit for hours in the rocking chairs on the porch. We have been returning to Maple Leaf for about 16 years - Annette and Paul

This was exactly what we were looking for! We loved the beautiful inn and the gracious Innkeepers. The rooms were so comfortable and the bedding was so luxurious. I can't say enough about the breakfast. It was so delicious, healthful and plenty of it for my husband. This was our first visit to Vermont and The Maple Leaf Inn met all my romantic thoughts about this lovely state. Nancy was a great help to plan our days activities and my husband loved his run right out the front door. Great experience, can't wait to go back.

Great location, we loved the sheets and just had to order them. Great attention to detail. Good value compared to other inns in the area.
5 on November 15, 2011
We were fortunate to find and stay at the Maple Leaf Inn in mid September. As Canadians, the name intrigued us of course, but our appreciation became much more substantial as we enjoyed every aspect of this quintessential Vermont inn. Genuine hospitality topped the list of our positive experiences with Nancy and Mike. Many thanks, Pat & Sam
5 on November 01, 2011
The innkeepers offer outstanding hospitality in a beautifully appointed inn where they have anticipated every need and convenience a traveler might want! Delicious gourmet breakfasts, very comfortable rooms and a relaxing atmosphere. An inviting place to relax and enjoy the Vermont countryside!
5 on November 01, 2011
We found the Maple Leaf Inn to be a wonderful "get away" destination. The inn is charming, immaculately clean, luxurious, and everything one could hope for in a Bed & Breakfast. The location is convenient yet sufficiently isolated to offer tranquility in a natural setting. One could breathe the sweet fresh air and no matter how hard you might try to hear any sound of distant traffic you will only hear the "sound of silence". We loved every minute and recommend it to anyone who wants to escape the craziness of daily life.

This place was incredible in every way. The breakfast's and rooms were excellent. The only advice I would give is too make sure you have good directions before going (available on website). There are many detours from all the road damage caused by the hurricanes and the GPS did not work well finding this place. There is also no cell phone coverage in Barnard. This is definately the best B&B I have ever visited!

The innkeepers, Mike and Nancy have a wonderful property on a beautiful parcel of land just 15 minutes from Woodstock. They provide an excellent service and know what it takes to please their guests. The food was excellent, the large rooms beautifully appointed and their service style was complimentary but unobtrusive. If you want the true Inn experience as it should be, Mike and Nancy and the Maple Leaf Inn will not disappoint. If a good night's sleep is a must, stay no where else.

We stayed at 4 B&Bs on our recent trip thru New England. By far, this one was the best! Mike and Nancy are outstanding innkeepers. The Inn is beautiful and the rooms are perfect! Nancy's breakfasts are delicious and truly a work of art! Mike was so helpful with giving us directions to great places to eat and sites to see in the area. We were very pleased and highly recommend this place to all travelers!

We stayed at the Maple Leaf Inn for two nights in early October. We've stayed at B&B's about six times before. We were really impressed by the innkeepers Nancy and Mike. They are very welcoming and helpful - really trying to make us feel at home. The food was wonderful each morning. Our third floor room was quiet, clean, and very nice. Overall we were very happy with our accomodations and service and we will probably return the next time we are in Vermont.

Just got back from my second visit to The Maple Leaf Inn and I'm ready to return any time! The Innkeepers, Mike and Nancy, are so personable and ensure a pleasant, comfortable stay without hovering. They are also very informative about the area. Gourmet breakfasts are absolutely wonderful. Rooms are comfortable, inviting, and spotless. (And the bed linens are to die for!) I've stayed at many inns and just can't "gush" enough about this one.

I planed a weekend getaway with my boyfriend to celebrate my birthday at Maple Leaf Inn. I guess I had a quite high expectation after my B&B experience before and also from reading the great reviews on the Inn. Despite the fact that the hosts are very welcoming and helpful, and the rooms are very clean, I don't think the room we got and the breakfast we had are as great as we would like it to be. Overall, it is a nice stay but not awesome.

We were given a gift certificate to stay at the Maple Leaf Inn by our son and daughter-in-law. We had wanted to go back to Vermont as we hadn't visited since our boys were young. We had no idea where we were going, but our son scoped things out on the internet and found this lovely oasis. The inn is beautiful with all the amenities anyone would want. You are in driving distance to so many attractions and stores, but the best is the way you are treated while there. We loved it so much that we went again this fall. The food is fantastic and you could not find better innkeepers than Mike and Nancy. The Frasers'

We had the PLEASURE to be staying at the Maple Leaf Inn during tropical storm Irene! As the storm was pummeling Vermont with 7-10 inches of rain, we were holed up at the Inn. We could not leave, due to the flood waters. Nancy and Mike were so kind as to take in a local family who had gotten flooded OUT of there home when they left to have lunch and when they tried to return, the flood waters had blocked access to their home! Mike and Nancy cooked us all a delicious dinner as none of us could leave the Inn. We have stayed at the Maple Leaf three times, and look forward to our return!
5 on September 03, 2011
We stayed at the inn during Hurricane Irene. We had a great stay. The inn keepers prepared extra meals for us and two local families who could not get to their home due to flooding. They had back-up power when commercial power went out. They kept spirits high and still had fresh cookies in the afternoon!
5 on September 01, 2011
My wife and I had the opportunity to spend three nights with Nancy and Mike in August. They provided us a very peaceful and enjoyable stay. Their attention to detail put us in touch with dinner reservations when we had not thought of them. We will certainly return in the near future.

My husband and I spent four nights at the Maple Leaf Inn during our summer vacation, and couldn't have asked for a more relaxing getaway. Mike, Nancy, and Anamaria made everything so easy -- we were truly able to relax and enjoy our time away from the city. The value here is incredible; the rates are a steal for the level of comfort and care that the Maple Leaf offers. We will absolutely return on future trips to VT. Lauren & Scott, Philadelphia, PA

This was our first trip to Vermont and we chose the perfect bed and breakfast to begin our journey...The Maple Leaf Inn. The inn is peacefully surrounded by hundreds of trees and visiting hummingbirds. The room was clean and tastefully decorated in beautiful oak furniture and many windows that over-looked the well-groomed grounds. The food was so well worth waiting for each morning, served in a charming dining room by the innkeepers. We found the innkeepers to be kind and friendly and aware of our needs, giving us tips of local eateries and places to adventure to. This inn was the best stay-over of our trip. We are looking forward to returning!
5 on July 30, 2011
We had a wonderful time at this Inn. We will certainly return. After staying at this Inn, we would not stay anywhere else when we return to visit Vermont oin the future.
5 on July 26, 2011
We had an amazing time here. We couldn't have asked for more. It was beautiful, Mike and Nancy were fantastic and the foot was outstanding. It was the best Anniversary trip we've taken.
4.8 on July 25, 2011
We stayed at The Maple Leaf Inn at the end of April (a bit late at posting a review!) and found it a wonderful place in every single way. We enjoyed its location, loved our room, and Nancy and Mike couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. And the breakfasts were delicious. We'll definitely be back! Boston, MA
5 on July 17, 2011
B&B's don't get any better than this, the site, the amenities, the wonderful Vermont breakfasts, but mostly for the efforts of Nancy and Mike. We're repeat guests.
4.8 on July 14, 2011
My wife and I stayed for one night. Mike and Nancy made us feel right at home for our short stay. The room was very nice and our breakfast was delicious. The grounds are wonderful and we saw a fox travel through the property a couple of times. Very relaxing stay. Thanks Mike and Nancy.
4.8 on July 11, 2011
This was our second stay and just as wonderful as the first. There is nothing else we could have hoped for...it is all perfect! Thank you, Nancy and Mike; you are excellent innkeepers!
5 on July 02, 2011
Maple Leaf Inn is by far one of the nicest B&B's in the country. We absolutely loved the location, lay out of the Inn itself, and the Innkeepers. Anyone considering opening a B&B should be REQUIRED to take a course from Nancy and Mike in order to become licensed! They are so good at their jobs because it is evident that they think about EVERY detail, no matter how small. From the afghans draped over every chair, including the rocking chairs on the porch (we had a couple of delightfully chilly days at the end of June), to the complementary snacks, coffee/tea/hot cocoa, wine/beer, use of the laptop, extensive library, peaceful and tranquil location - everything is perfect at this Inn. We highly recommend it to anyone needing a getaway because the minute you cross the threshold of the Inn, you are escorted into a different world! We can't wait to return! The cost for our room, which had a fireplace, Jacuzzi tub/shower, comfortable bed, heavenly sheets, two recliners, TV with cable and VCR and 6 windows (wonderful on the chilly days to let the fresh air in!) was very reasonable. We have paid more and gotten much less for our money. Add in the fabulous breakfasts, Nancy's cookies and small gifts left for you at turndown and you have one of the best places to visit in the US!
5 on May 18, 2011
The Maple Leaf is the nicest B & B that my husband and I have ever stayed in. The rooms are spacious, sparkling clean, and very comfortable. The delicious food is surpassed only by the warm generosity of the innkeepers, Mike and Nancy. They make guests feel very welcome and happy they chose to stay at the Maple Leaf!
4.2 on April 06, 2011
This lovely Inn is situated off the beaten path yet close to attractions. A great place to find peace. The innkeepers are lovely people who are very welcoming. We enjoy going to Inns where the inkeepers are present and take personal pride in their work. Nancy and Mike are great. Would return.
5 on March 30, 2011
We spent four nights and enjoyed every minute of it. Nancy and Mike could not have been more attentive. After we mentioned to Mike and Nancy that it was our wedding anniversary, we returned to find red roses, chocolates, and a card waiting for us in our room. When Nancy discovered I loved to bake but had been unable to schedule a class at King Arthur flour, she taught me how to make croissants--a long process! Nancy also sent us home with a bag of home-made granola. And the breakfasts were three courses and to die for. We can't wait to come back!
5 on March 27, 2011
My wife and I spent two nights for our 20th anniversary. When we arrived we were met at the door by the innkeepers Nancy and Mike who were friendly and attentive. The room was fabulous and the breakfasts were spectacular. Mike and Nancy were the perfect combination friendly innkeeper and informed concierge. We felt like we were staying with old friends who offered the right suggestions for places to eat and things to do, all of which turned out to be just what we wanted. As we spent our days in the surrounding towns we were informed that we were staying there in what is affectionately known by Vermonters as mud season (which should be know as the it's nice and quite here season). This turned out to be the right time for us as the towns are accessible (parking was easy) and the local shopkeepers had time to visit with us as we shopped. We would encourage anyone who is looking for a place to relax to head to the Maple Leaf. We have already heartily recommended the inn to our best friends and think this would be the perfect place for a two couple getaway. My wife is planning on taking each of our daughters up for a special night away with mom and there is no doubt that Nancy and Mike will make those perfect stays also. We will definitely be heading back up ourselves. If you get the chance head up and spend a few days with Mike and Nancy you will not be disappointed.
5 on March 23, 2011
We stayed at the Maple Leaf Inn for a brief one-night getaway. Mike and Nancy were welcoming and very gracious. We were planning to go snow-shoeing around the area, but it turned out that there is a cross-country ski trail just 100 meters from the back of their house, and Mike was nice enough to lend us their snow shoes. We also greatly enjoyed their fireplaces (both on the main floor and in our room), which were each prepped with firewood and just needed the strike of a match to start. Highly recommend!
5 on March 19, 2011
My wife and I traveled to the Maple Leaf Inn from our home in Texas. We wanted a nice get-a-way. We were greeted by Mike and Nancy as we entered the front door. They were very gracious and very helpful with information on what to see in the area. The room was beautiful and relaxing. The breakfast was outstanding and very enjoyable. We were pampered the whole time we stayed at The Maple Leaf Inn. Mike and Nancy do an grea job taking care of their guests and any needs they may have. We truly enjoyed our get-a-way. We will be going back to The Maple Leaf Inn in the future. This was our first B&B to stay at. We picked the right one for our first stay.
4.8 on March 12, 2011
Food was outstanding and ample. Very friendly hosts. Beautiful property, good privacy. Highly recommend.
5 on February 28, 2011
The warmth you feel when the front door opens isn't just from one of the many fireplaces scattered throughout the house. Nancy and Mike make you feel right at home from the moment you step in. From the constant smell of something wonderful cooking emanating from the kitchen to the little gifts left on your bed each day, you feel like this house is a home. This was the cleanest B+B we have ever stayed at. My wife and I haven't slept this soundly in years. You fall onto the king sized bed and wake up a different person. No alarm clock needed. You will wake to the smells of one of Nancy's famous breakfasts. The memories created at The Maple Leaf Inn will provide you a warmth no hearth could ever match! You must stay here but be careful, you may never want to leave!!
5 on February 27, 2011
We had a beautiful and memorable stay. The Innkeepers were so welcoming. We felt right at home. Our stay was very romantic. We will definitely be back.
5 on February 27, 2011
This B&B was the perfect romantic getaway for Valentine's Day weekend. The innkeepers were always attentive and made us feel at home. Our room, Morning Glory, was clean and spotless. The bed sheets were so soft and comfortable that we are considering purchasing a set for our home. The breakfast each morning was delicious and so filling. We would definitely stay here again! Two Thumbs Up Mike and Nancy!!
5 on February 23, 2011
the maple leaf was the perfect choice for the 4 of us to celebrate our 10th year visiting b&bs.mike and nancys pride of ownership is ever-present.every room was spotless,well appointed and comfortable.the food was great and well presented.the owners were always there for you and your needs,but not overbearing.the turndown service and all the little "gifts"are an example the special touches that sets the MLI apart from most inns.we also enjoyed sitting with them,getting their feelings on ownership of an inn.we will definitely return to the MLI soon...
5 on February 22, 2011
but I love this place too much not to write something. Everything about the Maple Leaf is great but my favorite things are the comfy sheets, the fireplace in the bedroom and Nancy's breakfast (homemade croissants by way of example!)
4.8 on February 09, 2011
Staying at the Maple Leaf Inn is an incredible experience, from the moment Mike greets you as you open your car door to your farewells as you leave with homemade cookies and maple syrup as parting gifts. After being there for just a few hours, we felt truly at home, as Nancy and Mike are such gracious and friendly hosts--Let us not forget Nona, the amiable inn dog. The rooms are lovingly decorated with family memorabilia and cozy furniture, and the fireplace and comfy chairs in our bedroom were a huge plus as we warmed up after a day of cross country skiing. Nancy and Mike have snowshoes available for guests wishing to use the wooded trails at the back of the inn. Of course, after a day of outdoor activities, it's always important to refuel, and breakfast is a high point--from a starter of fruit creatively prepared followed by warm scones and finally a yummy stuffed french toast. Maple Leaf Inn is definitely a place to return to every season!
5 on February 02, 2011
Returned here last weekend for a special anniversary and I just have to admire the consistently outstanding hospitality afforded us. Mike & Nancy are so welcoming, it's like visiting family (only with no 'baggage'). Incredibly helpful, warm, and endearing hosts. We usually get here 1-2 weekends a year and just can't get enough of the peaceful environment and the luxurious, quiet, and completely relaxing accomodation. Already looking forward to our next visit!
5 on January 20, 2011
We would definitely stay at this B&B again. Mike & Nancy were incredible. Breakfasts were excellent, beds were comfortable.
4.6 on January 11, 2011
Our ninth visit to Maple Leaf Inn was as memorable as the first! Nancy and Mike are the most welcoming and congenial hosts; the inn is super comfortable and impeccably maintained; we love the personal touches like home baked cookies "for the road"; and the breakfasts are exquisite. You couldn't ask for more.
5 on January 08, 2011
My wife and I have been staying at the Maple Leaf Inn at last once a year for over 10 years. We love it every time we stay. Mike and Nancy are wonderful hosts. The rooms are beautiful and very clean. Breakfast is delicious. There's lots to do in the area. We can't wait for next year's stay.
5 on January 03, 2011
My husband and I have been going to the Maple Leaf for about 12 years. We love to spend New Year's weekend at the Inn and have never been disappointed. There is so much to do in the area whatever the weather. As far as the Inn goes, it is beautiful and so well maintained. Nancy and Mike are welcoming hosts and make every effort to make our stay pleasant. Nancy is a wonderful cook and the breakfasts are exceptional. We look forward to our next visit. Kathy and Bill Tamborlane

My husband and I have stayed at many Inns and B & B's over the years and this is definately one of our favorites. It is warm and welcoming, immaculate yet charming. It is picture perfect to drive up to and the inkeepers, Nancy and Mike have always been there to welcome us on the walkway and help us carry in our luggage. We also appreciate a warm welcome from Nona, Nancy and Mike's dog. Each room is decorated beautifully and the beds are heavenly. Nancy and Mike's attention to detail is apparent in every room of the inn, in the service they provide and especially in each scrumptious breakfast that they prepare. The homemade cookies for an afternoon snack are always yummy. Well I guess it is very obvious...we love this place. We can't wait to go back!!!!!
5 on December 01, 2010
My stay at the Maple Leaf Inn exceeded my expectations. The Inn is beautiful. Our room was clean and cozy, the bed was a comfy dream. We loved having a fireplace! Nancy and Mike were warm and welcoming. They left us special treats on our pillows for our anniversary. Even the other guests were very friendly. Nancy is an excellent chef...we had delicious breakfasts! The area in VT is very beautiful as well - a perfect fall getaway. Woodstock is nearby. We had excellent meals at the restaurants we went to near the property. I would love to go back again next year. Thank you for a relaxing anniversary weekend!
4.4 on November 03, 2010
Just what we were looking for for a Charming Vermont Inn Weekend Getaway. Just off the beaten track enough. Just quaint AND modern enough. Mike and Nancy are gracious respectful hosts. They provide unexpected little personal touches to make your visit uniquely for you.The food is gourmet, local, and healthy.
5 on November 01, 2010
The Maple Leaf Inn was the best of all the B & B's we have stayed at. The innkeepers are so very gracious, the breakfasts are DELICIOUS and the rooms are extremely spotless and clean.

One of my wifes life long dreams was to stay at a Bed and Breakfast in Vermont. With our 26th wedding anniversary and her 4? birthday less than a week away she finaly got her dream. This was our very first time ever staying at a bed and Breakfast and Mike and Nancy made sure that it was perfect. From the time we walked in the door until we walked out the door to head back to Indianpolis. The room was great and the food was even better.
4.8 on October 26, 2010
The innkeepers offer all the extra touches that made our stay so delightful. The room was large and going to sleep with the fireplace aglow was a treat. Breakfast was delicious so come hungry. Nancy and Mike were so helpful with where to dine and what to see. They helped us with our luggage and upon our departure, Nancy gave my husband some homemade chocolate chip cookies she learned he loved. Their friendly manner and attention to detail made it an exceptional place to stay.
5 on October 25, 2010
The Maple Leaf Inn is a beautiful property. The rooms are very clean and the beds are extremely comfortable. We were made to feel like family from the moment we set foot in the door. Mike and Nancy are wonderful innkeepers. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay and our first visit to Vermont. I highly reccommend the Maple Leaf Inn.
5 on October 22, 2010
We arrived at the Maple Leaf Inn in the early afternoon, Mike and Nancy both greeted us at the door. They had warm oatmeal chocolate chip cookies waiting for us. They both gave us a full tour of the Inn. Our room was at the top of the stairs and was just beautiful! The bed was so comfortable! Our bathroom had a heated floor and a bathtub big enough for two! My husband was not feeling well and decided to take a nap. I went downstairs to the Library and checked my email. (they have a computer for guest use) and read my book for awhile. I then took a walk to the local market. (only 1/4 mile down the road). When I had made our Inn reservations, Nancy had recommended dinner at the Simon Pearce. She had confirmed our dinner time for that night for us. Dinner was amazing and I would highly recommend going to this restaurant. Breakfast the next morning was amazing~ vanilla yogurt with fresh granola and berries, homemade blueberry/banana pancakes with fresh Vermont Maple syrup and bacon. Mike and Nancy truly LOVE what they do and it is obvious when you stay at their Inn. We stayed in 4 different Inns while in Vermont and New Hampshire and I would HIGHLY recommend staying at the Maple Leaf Inn!!
5 on October 19, 2010
You wonder that a Victorian mansion could be so perfectly maintained, then discover that it is less than 20 years old -- thus, lots of old-time charm and the advantages of a modern inn. We loved our recent stay because Mike and Nancy were wonderful hosts, the facilities were impeccable, and the other guests, lots of fun. We definitely hope to return.
5 on October 12, 2010
Maple Leaf Inn has an outstanding location in the countryside near Woodstock, Vt. The innkeepers are gracious, there are too many amenities to name and the breakfasts are, indeed, gourmet. We hope to return soon.
5 on October 10, 2010
My wife and I booked a stay at the Maple Leaf Inn after reading online reviews for several B&B's in the Woodstock area. Our interest was in photographing the fall foilage and scenic New England towns and farms nearby. We found the Maple Leaf Inn better than we expected. The inn itself is spotlessly clean, well maintained, beautifully decorated, and the bed and linens were exceptionally comfortable. Breakfasts were excellent all 3 days of our stay and hosts Mike and Nancy could not have been more accommodating. By far the best B&B experience we have ever had. M. A. Bray

This was our second stay at this lovely inn at a beautiful time of the year. The room, service, cleanliness, breakfast were all just wonderful and delightful. Nancy and Mike are great innkeepers, and make you feel so welcome and special. Little special touches made for a wonderful weekend together with our friends. We can't wait to return to this special inn in the woods.
4.8 on September 27, 2010
A B+B as they used to be. Hosts who live there and can give you recommendations w/o being intrusive. Liked the small details like the maple syrup gift and the cookies for the road. Very nice location away from the road. Hope to go back.
5 on September 23, 2010
My husband and I spent two wonderful days and it was the highlight of our two week trip through New England. The Inn is charming and our room was very cozy and nicely decorated. The gourmet breakfast was delicious and the Innkeepers Nancy & Mike were very gracious and welcoming. We can't wait to go back to Vermont and The Maple Leaf Inn.
5 on September 21, 2010
Having stayed at many B&Bs, we can say that the Maple Leaf Inn is truly exceptional. The rooms are large and attractively furnished, but also very cozy. The gourmet breakfast was a real treat. Mike and Nancy really know their business and provide a warm and very welcoming environment.
4.8 on September 18, 2010
My husband & I just returned from a wonderful four night stay at the Maple Leaf Inn. The Inn was all we had hoped it would be and more! Perhaps what made it even more wonderful was meeting Mike and Nancy. They are two deeply caring individuals that have mastered the fine art of gentle hospitality filled with random acts of kindness and genuine thoughtfulness. We came as total strangers and clearly felt we left as friends. Thanks again Mike and Nancy!
5 on September 17, 2010
Room was spacious and exceptionally clean with comfortable chairs and a heavenly king size bed, with plenty of extra pillows. Even the fireplace had an authentic Persian rug in front of it. Mike & Nancy were very gracious hosts and patiently answered all of our questions. And their restaurant recommendations were outstanding and on the mark! The Inn is secluded and away from the road, so the only sound you hear is the rustling of leaves and the myriad birds that make this property their home. This is definitely a repeat stay for us if we are ever in the greater Woodstock area again.
4.0 on September 12, 2010
From the moment you enter the grounds you realize you are in a special place. The hospitality is second to none from arrival until you depart. Every detail is and has been tended too. Nancy and Mike welcome you like they have known you for many years and look to create relationships which will be renewed through future visits. Special touches include personal notes, a full tour when you arrive, nightly turndown with a special gift, and a room which is immaculate. Breakfast in the morning is served in three courses which include a fruit, bread, and entree selection. We are looking forward to another wonderful stay and can't wait to arrive at the Maple Leaf Inn. Thank you Nancy and Mike - wher hospitality and expectations are always exceeded. WEndy and Bob - Guests on Sept 11, 2010

We had our best stay ever in The Maple Leaf Inn ! Thanks to Nancy and Mike for all their kindness. Everything was perfect : the landscape, the house (which is so lovely), the bedroom, the hosts, and the breakfast... We hope that we can come again !
5 on August 31, 2010
Thank you so much for the most wonderful weekend. Besides the weather being perfect, Nancy and Mike were the perfect hosts. It was the best experience we've ever had at a B&B. There was not one thing that I would change, except I hope we will be able to go back again.

This was our second visit to the Maple Leaf Inn. The previous visit was under different management/ownership, 4 years ago. Obviously we enjoyed our first experience and sought out the inn again even though we live across the continent. The new owners have continued with the high standards set by the previous owners. We chose the same room again. We have and would highly recommend this Inn to anyone visiting the area.
4.8 on August 24, 2010
After spending a whirlwind week in New York City the beauty and quiet of Vermont was a welcoming experience. Nancy and Mike were there to meet us when we arrived and from that moment they made us feel as though their home was our home. From a welcoming glass of wine to enjoy on the front porch to making dinner reservations for us they were always aware of our needs as well as the needs of the other guests staying with them. The room was spacious, nicely decorated and very well kept. The bed was extremely comfortable and we were able to sleep with all six windows open and heard nothing all night long. After a very peaceful sleep we were given a wonderful breakfast to set us on our journey home. Our stay was truly a great experience. The chocolate chip cookies a sweet treat. We will definitely be going back and will take friends with us.
5 on August 22, 2010
Outstanding is the perfect description. The rooms, subtle decor,spotless conditions and comfort alone would bring us back. Add the warmth, courtesy attention to every detail ,three course breakfast, hummingbirds and friendships made put Maple Leaf Inn at the top. Bob and Shirley Conroy
5 on August 18, 2010
Mike and Nancy have created a truly special place that is a reflection of who they are.... warm, friendly, bright, cheerful, and accommodating in every way. Their place is simply beautiful and the breakfasts are absolutely scrumptious!!!!
5 on August 13, 2010
Where do I begin ?? The Mapel Leaf Inn is by far the best B & B we have ever stayed in. Nancy and Mike certainly know how to do it up right. They are the best innkeepers.....no...wait.....they made us feel more like family than guests. The attention to detail is unsurpassed!!!! The gorgeous rooms and furniture and colors schemes were perfect. EVERYTHING was perfect!! I will recommend anyone wanting a wonderful peaceful comfortable stay, The Maple Leaf Inn is by far the place to go. We will be returning again for leaf peeping. I can only imagine how spectacular that will be........until next time, Nancy and Mike keep up the good work...you are masters at this. You wrote the book on Innkeeping!!!!!
5 on August 10, 2010
The Maple Leaf Innn is an amazing place to stay. Mike and Nancy are wonderful hosts from arrival to departure. The property is beautiful and our room, The Country Garden, was lovely. Each breakfast was memorable! The attention to detail was admirable!! Can't wait to visit again!
4.4 on August 08, 2010
Our favorite B&B. Mike and Nancy make you feel like you are home. The breakfasts are wonderful. I have a gluten intolerance and Nancy creates gluten free items for me. Just ask and she will accommodate just about any food issues you may have. Afternoon snacks, coffee, and lemonade are a treat. You couldn't find a more peaceful and relaxing place to unwind.
5 on August 07, 2010
My wife and I spent two beautiful nights at the Maple Leaf Inn and were absolutely delighted with our stay. Nancy and Mike made us feel right at home and the room as well as the breakfasts were outstanding. We were able to totally relax at the Inn and really enjoyed sitting on the wraparound porch in rockers just taking in the clean air and the view. Literally everything was perfect and Mike and Nancy set the standard without a doubt. We look forward to returning next year and spending more time at this beautiful inn.
5 on August 07, 2010
The Maple Leaf Inn met much more than we expected. It is a beautiful and relaxing destination to unwind or to hike and tour to your heart's content. Mike and Nancy do their utmost to help you feel welcome and have anticipated almost every need. How wonderful to feel so pampered! Breakfasts were just amazing and wish I had taken photos. Stay at least 3 days.
5 on July 15, 2010
Mike & Nancy Boyle are unequalled in terms of accomodating all guests wishes and needs. This is perhaps the most relaxing inn anywhere - rocking on the porch - walking to the nearby country store - it doesn't get much more laid back. The food is great and the attention to detail terrific. You will come back.

My friend and I stayed there for 2 nights and the inn keepers could not have been nicer. It is a outstanding inn with modern luxuries yet old quaint charm. It is top rated on my list for comfort, value and friendliness. A must visit.

Outstanding hospitality and comfort. Mike and Nancy were the ultimate hosts. The food was superb!! If you are a golfer, be sure to ask for the "go low" scones!! We would stay here again anytime.
4.8 on June 16, 2010
This B&B is beautiful, impeccably clean, and the breakfast is fantastic (the tea selection is impressive and the quality and variety of breakfast selections was a treat). Nancy and Mike are extremely friendly, welcoming, and helpful when it comes to planning local outings. The grounds are lovely and the bikes provided on site were top notch. Reading on the porch alone was a definite highlight! Our stay was perfect and we highly recommend the Maple Leaf Inn.
4.6 on June 15, 2010
This is an excellent B&B off the beaten path, but well worth the drive. Extremely personable proprietors and all the right touches makes this a must return spot.

Hello Mike and Nancy, Wanted to thank you again for your hospitality. I really enjoyed my stay at your inn and also enjoyed our talks. The room was very nice, clean and cozy. The atmosphere at the Maple Leaf Inn is inviting and comfortable and that is due to all the thoughtful touches you include for your guests. I wish I could have enjoyed the full experience of your breakfasts but my business trip required that I leave too early. I appreciate that you accomodated my schedule. It was nice to see that the rooms look as great on site as they do on the web. Everyone knows that is not always the case. Thanks again for your hospitality and thoughtfulness. Hopefully my next stay will be for a get away with my husband so that he can also have the pleasure of meeting you and staying at a wonderful B&B.

Mike and Nancy go out of their way to make your stay at their beautiful and comfortable inn outstanding. We were relaxed and well taken care of during our stay. They provide many personable touches to your stay while at the same time you enjoy a relaxing quiet get a way. We stayed their on our "baby moon" and enjoyed a relaxing retreat in a modern comfortable inn that exceeded our expectations. Also, breakfast was amazing. We will be back. Thanks Mike and Nancy :)

This is our second time at The Maple Leaf Inn. Nancy and Mike have been just wonderful in making our stay as memorable as possible. This Inn feels like our home away from home! The rooms are extremely comfortable with radiant heated bathrooms a welcome feature when days are cold. The breakfasts are as delicious as they come. The fireplaces in some rooms are perfect for cozy evenings in. Nancy and Mike are the most thoughfull, kind and generous people you will ever meet and our needs are always met. Housekeeping is wonderful too, leaving our rooms beautifully clean and fresh day after day. We look forward to our next stay with them.

We were surprised to learn that the inn had changed ownership a few years ago but were delighted to find that everything was just as nice as our stay a few years ago. Mike and Nancy were gracious and personable and all the amenities add up to a great stay. The snack cupboard and fridge came in handy when Stan needed his bedtime snack and although we didn't have a chance to use the always available coffee machine it was nice to know it was there. They also included a very welcome glass of wine when we arrived. The property is as beautiful as when Janet and Gary first built. As they say, Try it, you'll like it. Jill and Stan

Spending a few days in Vermont in mud season, was made pure pleasure by Nancy and Mike at The Maple Leaf Inn. We'd go back anytime. Hitting maple syrup season was the a bonus.

Mike and Nancy really go the extra mile to make the Maple Leaf Inn a place of comfort and welcoming. They don't just provide and serve, they anticipate. My wife and I honeymooned there and have revisited and we'll go back again. The rooms are comfy and calming and quiet. The breakfasts are excellent. And they do so much more. It's obvious that Mike & Nancy love being innkeepers and it'll be obvious to any guest.

The Maple Leaf Inn in Barnard VT is the Best Bed and Breakfast we have ever stayed at . The breakfasts are delicious and it is very hard to leave. The inn keepers go out of their way to make you feel right at home and can't do another for you. It is truely the BEST!!!

We spent 4 days at the Maple Leaf Inn and really didn't want to leave. It is so comfortable and the innkeepers are so caring. The breakfasts are outstanding and Nancy's afternoon cookies are delicious. The rooms are spotless and absolutely charming. Mike and Nancy do everything to make your stay totally stress free and enjoyable. You could not find a better place to stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Maple Leaf Inn and would definitely go back for some more time in front of the fireplace, and to enjoy more of the wonderful service provided. The rooms are clean, the beds are very comfortable, and the breakfast did not dissapoint. The website is great for viewing and selecting the room you want, and for booking online. Overall, the best bed and breakfast we have stayed at.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Maple Leaf for one night. We were looking for a quiet and secluded place to relax. When we saw the Maple Leaf in on the website it looked perfect! In arriving to the Inn, it exceeded our expectations. Our room had a wood fire place, huge jacuzzi tub; everything was lovely. Mike and Nancy were so kind and thoughtful through out our entire stay. They accommodated our every need. I highly recommend the Maple Leaf Inn, we will surely be back.

My wife and I stayed at the Maple Leaf Inn for three nights for a much needed getaway. From start to finish this was hands down the best B&B we have stayed at anywhere. Mike and Nancy were so welcoming and friendly. We felt like quests in a friend's home. The morning would start off with a delicious breakfast that seemed to get better each morning. (The breakfast pizza is terrific) The room was quiet, private, and just what we needed to unwind. Mike and Nancy were great with providing information and advice for dinner plans, sight-seeing, places to shop, etc. When your bed is turned down each night, a little gift is waiting for you. With so many choices for lodging in the Woodstock Vermont area we a are so pleased that we picked the BEST. It's the little things that make a difference and Mike and Nancy cover all the bases and more. If you are looking for a place to stay in the area look no further.

This inn is wonderful. Setting is idyllic. Charming public spaces. The innkeepers, Nancy & Mike, are friendly, helpful, lovely to chat with. Their dog Nona is wonderful. Each room has its own thermostat. Each bathroom has heated floors. Mike was sure to stock our supplies for our REAL wood burning crackling fireplace multiple times per day. Both the bed and the bedding were amazing. The breakfast each day was creative, prompt, & delicious. Snacks and beverages are readily available for any guest at any time. We recommend this inn to everyone!

We had a great stay at the Maple Leaf Inn. We enjoyed walking through the wintry forest and skiing at nearby Killington. We loved our room, the scrumptious breakfasts and especially the chocolate chip cookies! Nancy and Mike were excellent hosts.
5 on February 07, 2010
Nancy and Mike made me feel so welcome. The room was beautiful, the bed so comfortable, the fireplace so easy to start. The bathroom was so modern -loved the whirlpool tub and heated floors! The food was delicious. Nancy told me about a hiking trail right out back of the inn. I totally enjoyed my stay and look forward to returning to the Maple Leaf Inn.

We stayed at the Maple Leaf for a long weekend in January 2010, and it was a simply perfect weekend from start to finish. Mike and Nancy were so welcoming and friendly, gave great recommendations on dining and shopping, and made sure we had our our own space. The room (and inn) was gorgeous and so comfortable (the sheets alone deserve their own reveiw!), and we loved the bathroom with the big tub and fireplace - perfect for January! The food completely exceeded our expecatations - each one was completely unique and delicious. Nancy - when are you going to come out with that cookbook? I'm still dreaming about the fruit salad... All in all, this is an amazing inn, and I'm so glad that we found it. We were sad to leave, and can't wait to come back for another visit. I think that the Maple Leaf Inn has spoiled us for any other B&B - I can't imagine going anywhere better!

Mike and Nancy are "HANDS DOWN" the best host. Beautiful Inn, Beautiful Property. Far above our expectations and our expectations were very high. Mike and Nancy go way out of their way to make you feel welcome. They are head and shoulder's above their competition. The MAPLE LEAF INN sets the bar for ANY Hotel, Bed & Breakfast or resort. There is not one detail they have overlooked............and Nancy sure can cook........Thanks so much and we hope to see you in the near furture for another wonderful getaway

We stayed there the first week in October 2009 to catch the Fall foliage (and we were just in time). Not only is the Maple Leaf Inn a picture perfect Vermont B & B, Nancy & Mike were very personable and made wonderful meals. The rooms were absolutely beautiful and the fireplace was always prepped every night, ready for us to use. I hope to return again and again and again.

I have stayed at the Maple Leaf Inn 5 times now and each time I enjoy the experience more and more. I love the location, the beautiful house, the warm and inviting atmosphere. It is truly a magical place!!! I can never stay at another bed and breakfast anywhere!!!

We've been staying at the Maple Leaf Inn at least once a year since we first experienced it in 2003. The rooms are beautiful and clean. Nancy cooks a very tasty and filling breakfast. Mike and Nancy are wonderful hosts who maintain a beautiful inn. We also look forward to seeing Nona.

My husband and I spent a fabulous weekend at the Maple Leaf Inn in September. Nancy and Mike are amazing hosts with just the right amount of attention balanced with privacy! We unforunately had some allergies to the down comforter, which they immediately rectified for us! The breakfasts were so yummy. Nona is just the cutest pet and a joy to have around. Can't wait to go back!

Wonderful, thoroughly enjoyable experience. No negatives!!

We went to Vermont mid-October to see the Fall leaves. Our stay at the Maple Leaf Inn was the highlight of the trip. The hosts, Nancy & Mike, go out of their way to make everything perfect for their guests. The room was comfortable and clean. We would definitely stay there again.

We started out seeing the fall leaves and awoke to snow. This was such a delight! Mike and Nancy go out of their way, helping preserve my fall leaves with wax paper and an iron. Would go back in a second!

The Maple Leaf Inn is a wonderful place to spend a few quiet nignts. The breakfasts were outstanding. Mike and Nancy were very helpful in pointing out interesting places to visit and dinner recomendations. We will go back for sure.

of warmth and family. We had never been to the Inn before but by the time we left, we were one of the family. Mike and Nancy went out of their way to make us feel welcome, right down to the ever-present cookies at the bottom of the stairs. And the room! The best bed in an inn we have ever had. We even ordered a set of sheets that they use on the beds, the best ever. Can't wait to go back.

You are treated like an honoured family member. Nothing is to much trouble and the relaxing quiet surroundings are outstanding. The perfect chill out to charge your batteries our celebrate/share an occasion with someone special.

We were fortunate to stay at the Maple Inn for three nights in September 2009 and would highly recommend this as a five star bed and breakfast. Rooms, food, service, ambiance and most of all our hosts all exceeded any expectations we could possibly have. The superior linens alone are worth visiting again. The extra touch of leaving little "presents" on the pillows at nightly turndown makes it feel like Christmas each and every night. Can't wait for our next visit and many more future visits to The Maple Leaf Inn.

We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary weekend at The Maple Leaf Inn. It was our 3rd visit and each time it just gets better and better. The wonderful rooms, delicious breakfasts, personal touches and warm hosts make this truly a very special Inn. We look forward to when we can return for another getaway!

Outstanding. Couldn't have been better.

Every August for the last 4 years, my husband and I savor a two-night stay at the Maple Leaf Inn. The hosts are more gracious than any guest could hope for, and the inn itself pulls you into a relaxed state just through its ambiance ... and the ever present baked goods and glasses of iced drinks! We sit on the porch, reading and planning our dinner and next day's activities and just enjoy being together without having to worry about kids, cooking, cleaning, or whose turn it is to take out the garbage. Mike and Nancy provide a refuge for the harried and stressed, and turn us into relaxed people who remember why we love each other. If you're looking for that kind of experience, stay here.

The Maple Leaf Inn is the perfect get away. It was so relaxing, and the owners Nancy and Mike were so gracious. I throughly enjoyed my stay and would recommend it to anyone. Perfect location, and the rooms and breakfast exceeded my expectations.
5 on June 27, 2009
What great hosts! We stayed in a lovely room - lots of room and clean. The excellent bed with absolutely heavenly linens made sleeping an event. We were treated to great breakfasts and were catered to throughout the day if we had a request. The house is located far off the road and is surrounded by wooded areas yet restaurants and shops were easily accessible. We will be returning to the Maple Leaf Inn in the autumn and have shared this place with our friends.
5 on May 19, 2009
We can't say enough about this inn and the innkeepers. This is a gem of a B&B. The highest standards are met in comfort, elegance, service and value. We can't wait to get back for another visit.

My boyfriend and I came to the Maple Leaf..our first bed and breakfast experience..last march..and to this day that has been our favorite experience. The accomodations were exceptional, the food terrific, and the most gracious hosts, Nancy amd Mike. That place holds a special place in our hearts and hopefully we will make it back there soon!

We recently experienced a fabulous 3-day winter stay at the Maple Leaf Inn, which is located in a magical part of Vermont. The Inn is beautiful and impeccably clean, and the hosts Mike and Nancy immediately became two of our most enjoyable friends. There were lots of fun touches and treats. Nancy's cooking is out of this world, and she was more than happy to accommodate any special dietary needs such as gluten or lactose-free recipes. Our room had a fireplace, bathrobes, fine crisp linens on the big comfy bed, a heated bathroom floor, jacuzzi tub, and much more. The breakfast dining room is lovely with beautiful place settings, and each table has its own perfect spot in the room with window views of the scenery outside. We loved the area….there is so much to do. We visited the towns of Woodstock, Quechee, and Hanover (home of Dartmouth College), with their art galleries, general stores, covered bridges, historic buildings, rivers and gorges, local crafts and industries (such as cheese, maple syrup, pewter, hand-blown glass, etc.) and some fantastic restaurants and cafes. We tried and fell in love with snow-shoeing on the trail right behind the Inn, which was a highlight; also there is ice-skating, and there are many more winter and summer activities. We hope to return to the Maple Leaf Inn as often as we can, and recommend it highly!

Mike & Nancy were excellent hosts -- adding all the small touches for one of our best B&B stays!! Delicious, filling breakfasts each morning along with yummy cookies and spiced cider in the afternoons. A well-stocked library with interesting current books as well as classics. Service was great and we enjoyed spending the time chatting with our hosts. The room was cozy, clean, and comfortable. In addition to suggestions on fun activities in the nearby beautiful VT countryside, we also received discounts to local activities/stores. We will definitely be back!

We have been to many B&B's, but never had such a gracious and considerate hosts. The inn was immaculate, charming, and beautiful attention to detail. It was a New Years we will always remember!

This was our 3rd stay at the Maple Leaf Inn and it met all of our expectations once again. It was a restful weekend away from our 3 small children. The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. We love the New England area and cannot wait until we can make our 4th visit sometime in 2009.
