Two-Day Stay at Maple Leaf Inn

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.

Definitely outstanding!

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!

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-Star Hospitality

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

Winter Wonderland

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!

Great place to stay on business

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.

This is a lovely property. We really enjoyed the in-room fireplace and the delicious breakfast. The Boyles are very accommodating hosts.

Another amazing stay at the Maple Leaf Inn!

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!
