Cozy hidden gem in woods

4.8 on January 17, 2018

This truly is a hidden gem “ in the woods” I enjoyed the surrounding area and all it had to offer. This lodge is a delightful place to relax and enjoy nature ! The hosts are charming and very knowledgeable!


Unforgettable stay

5 on January 08, 2018

My (now) fiance and I had an unforgettable 1-night stay here. Christina & Abbott were the most welcoming and gracious hosts, and served up a delicious breakfast in the morning including home-made honey and bread and much more. Snowshoeing around the premises was a blast. Their two dogs are adorable and friendly. The radiant heat from the floors was amazing especially given the 2-degree weather outside. The room was spacious and comfortable. And most importantly, my fiance and I got engaged here. The Lodge at Honey Maple Grove will always hold a special place in our hearts and we look forward to coming back again some time!


Toasty floors

4.8 on January 01, 2018

The heated floors were wonderful & Abbott allowed me to plug in my Toyota Prius Prime from the regular household current outlet on the porch.Stayed 1 night in one of the upstairs bedrooms.Other upstairs bedrm was my bro & sis-in-law.Was kind of odd that the owner space is not completely separate from guests but did not bother me.2 large dogs & cat were pretty quiet.Wish there was small fridge with water/juice on 2nd /flr.


Wonderfull B&B

5 on November 05, 2017

This place is amazing, the building and most of all the hosts. Abbott and Christina could not have been more welcoming. Besides taking great pains to be sure I was comfortable with their two dogs and three cats, they were a mine of information on people and places in the area. By the time I left, I felt like they were old friends. I would suggest arriving before dark, as it is a little difficult to find the driveway if you are here for the first time.


Quiet, Clean, Comfortable BNB Tucked Away in the Woods

5 on September 19, 2017

Beautiful location tucked away in the woods and way better than staying in a motel (which was other option in the area). Welcoming owners who do everything they can to be sure you are comfortable. Loved the smell of pine from the wood used to construct the house and all of the historical pieces of furniture. Felt partly like a museum. Really felt like a country inn- we were greeted by 2 big dogs when we arrived and there are some cats on site who are shy so hide away. Abbott keeps bees and is happy to show you the honey (and serves it for breakfast). Amazing home-cooked breakfast made to order. We stayed in the King bed downstairs which has its own bathroom and opens onto BNB patio and is peaceful and has a very comfortable bed. Very private and all updated and well maintained. Our friend stayed upstairs in a Queen which has a shared bath with the other Queen and was very nice as well (all rooms have nice linens and furnishings). I stayed with my 5 year old which is really the youngest child I would recommend (and is permitted)- even on the young side and unless you have both rooms upstairs I would not recommend staying upstairs with younger kids since other guests will be in other room with a shared bathroom and you want to be sure your kids don't disturb other guests and are well-behaved (whereas if at a motel or hotel they if they whine or have a meltdown it isn't a big deal). Also many beautiful and breakable furnishings which can be hard to resist touching (they do have some great kids toys which are a good distraction)! This is a great place and I hope to return. Thanks to Abbot and Christina for the hospitality!


excellent retreat

5 on September 18, 2017

Talk about the best of both worlds. Abbott and Christina's place is incredible. It is hidden and quiet and so restful. We loved the fresh air. I really wish my husband and I had been able to stay longer so I guess we'll be coming back. Abbott and Christina are wonderful people. We were also fascinated by the bees; Abbott generously gave us a tour of the bee hive area and told us a lot about bee keeping. We spent a few days in NYC then rented a car at LGA and drove up, then returned to LGA to drop the car and fly out. You definitely need to rent a car to find it, but you're still really close to trains if you want to visit NYC. Loved it!


Peace and quiet in the country, lovely hosts!

4.6 on September 02, 2017

What a gem! This is a country setting in a small, beautiful town, but with easy access to the city and so many things to do in between. Abbott and Christina were wonderful hosts, seeing to our comfort and needs. Musicians to boot - they have a piano that you're welcome to play plus a nice guitar selection. Also, really important -- the wifi works (but don't use it because presumably you're on vacation!). My husband and I look forward to staying again when we're in town to visit family. Thanks, Abbott & Christina!


A true treasure!

5 on August 23, 2017

We were so thrilled to have found this amazing bed and breakfast tucked away down a dirt road in Bedford. It's a true log home with acres of land. The hosts Abbot and Christina were warm and welcoming and made us feel at home right away. The room was large and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast was fresh and very satisfying. We had a great visit and plan to return!

Can it be THIS good?

4.0 on August 07, 2017

Yes! We wanted a place to stay near the NYC Botanical Gardens so we could go see the Chihuly Glass Exhibit in the Bronx but also wanted some peaceful retreat time. We got both and more at the Lodge at Honey Maple Grove. Our room and bed was comfortable, we had an upstairs balcony where we could have coffee in a beautiful wooded setting, and I even got to play piano and talk music with the hosts, Abbott and Christina. There's so much more to say but you just have to come and experience it for yourself. There's places to go and things to see nearby and if you want, the train to NYC is only 10 minutes away! And... they make their own honey and maple syrup, so breakfast is always a treat! Gives this place a try. It's worth it!

Innkeeper Response
Robert & Thaila, Thanks for your great review. It was our first on BnB.com. We look forward to having you as guests again. The piano will be tuned by then ... and we'll be able to play together. Hopefully the floors are perfect. Wishing you an easy birth and a healthy boy ... even if he won't be Jr. Christina & Abbott
