Perfect anniversary getaway!

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!

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!

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast

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!

A great 4 night get away

One in a Million

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.

The above ratings should say it all! This Inn completely changed my opinion--based on previous experiences with other b&bs--to the positive.

Always perfect

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!

Great place to stay to get away from everything . The owners were outstanding.

Barnard Return

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.

Memorable Stay

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.
