27 room brick Federal home built in 1808. This home is surrounded by 320 acres of beautiful views in the center of Shrewsbury. All rooms are very large and most have a double & single bed in each. Some have wood stoves. Guests enjoy walking & hiking on the farm. Much to do in the surrounding area within 40 mins. drive. True Vt. hospitality, a visit to the past at Grandma's House.

I've stayed here many times through the years. Feels like visiting a favorite auntie in the country. Room for kids to run and play and explore. Get to know real Vermonters and learn about farming and maple syrup production. Robert Frost stayed here. Peace and quiet and star-filled nights, board games by the fire, walks in the woods.

Loved it! Very comfortable, wonderful historic home. You must take time your time to enjoy it! Donna is quiet, but if you are not in a hurry she has some incredible stories of the house and area. She was very helpful with pointing out key stopping places as we made our voyage north. We will definitely book again.

Donna was a very nice hostess. We had an enjoyable stay, but unfortunately the furnace wasn't working properly. We were refunded our one night that we decided to go elsewhere, but were not refunded anything from the cold showers and little heat that we had during our time there. Although the breakfasts were very good and the hostess, Donna was very sweet, we were disappointed in our weekend. These things happen without warning. One never knows when a furnace will go bad, but the failure to offer more of a refund, in my opinion, was not good business. I know this may be a deterent to some, but as long as you check ahead of time to make sure there is ample heat, I am sure the stay would be more than worthwhile. The price was right!! God bless you Donna! You are a wonderful lady.

Most pleasant. I stayed in the room requested, which was a big plus. It was like going home.

I stepped back in time to the mid-1800's. This is a beautiful home on a working farm, tucked away on the side of a mountain. The views are breathtaking. Maplecrest is a place I will go back to, to experience all seasons.

Beatiful! That word describes a spotless, antique filled but not pretentious B&D inn surrounded by mountains. Donna and Bill Smith make you feel so at home, I was sorry to leave. But will return to enjoy another delicious pancake breakfast with the BEST maple syrup, made in the premises, I ever tasted.

We've been staying at Maple Crest for years. We have endless happy memories of hiking the hills and enjoying "Donna's farm", as we call it. A step back in time. Feels like going to visit a much-loved aunt in Vermont.
