A very special place.

5 on January 03, 2017

My wife and I often avoid bed and breakfast establishments, mainly because we are not big breakfast eaters and do not necessarily seek socialization with short-term acquaintances. But Maple Shade is a very special place for us. The hosts are wonderful people, the house is remarkably sited and wonderfully maintained, and it is situated next to the historic battlefield on which American Independence was assured. Maple Shade is outstanding in every respect. I am sure that we will continue to find reasons to stay there.

Simply deligtful

From the moment we arrived at Maple Shade, we felt welcomed and at home. The property, set in a corn field, is beautiful and serene. Our room was comfortable, quiet and meticulous. Breakfast was delicious and we appreciated having a snack area stocked with coffee and goodies. We have already booked our next visit!

Warm and inviting

We have already booked return trips to Maple Shade. Jo Ann is so lovely and helpful and Tom makes delicious breakfasts. We found the setting to be bucolic and yet close to the action of Saratoga. Maxine and Jimmy

Our only regret was not spending more time here! The rooms are immaculate, very elegant dining, very lovely hosts. Will most definitely stay again!

Wonderful Anniversary Get Away

We had a wonderful time making this a home away from home with all the comforts. The house was extremely clean and the linens very comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious with a different homemade muffin for each day of our visit. The extra's were left in the guest kitchenette for snacking on later with a cup of tea or coffee. Our hosts were helpful with finding interesting things to do during our stay and some of the favorite local restaurants. We plan to return in the near future!

Best Place for R & R

Our family spent several days here at this lovely retreat, renting the entire inn for a family reunion. All of the guest rooms were very clean, unique and tastefully decorated. Homemade muffins were served every morning as was a different breakfast. Nice presentation and best of all everything was HOT! Would highly recommend this location for a couple's visit or for a family reunion. You won't be disappointed.

The Best Choice for Comfort and Relaxation

5 on July 31, 2013

Our stay at Maple Shade B&B was the best experience we've had with bed and breakfast accommodations. We were so glad we chose to stay there. The setting is so relaxing from the wrap around porch with magnificent views of the mountains to the beautiful perennial gardens. The food was excellent and JoAnn made every effort to ensure the menu suited our tastes. The muffins were great! I loved the kitchenette they provided for the guests to use. Tom and family members did an excellent job of renovating the house. I'm looking forward to our next visit.

Amazing Inn and Hosts

5 on June 18, 2013

Our entire experience was outstanding! The inn is beautiful. The common areas were very welcoming and our room was charming (and spotless). The bed was so comfortable and the linens felt great to sleep in. We had a lot of rain while visiting and the temps were cool. The fireplace kept us cozy. Our breakfasts were enormous and were lovingly cooked by Joanne. We felt so well cared for. The property is breathtakingly beautiful. I HIGHLY recommend the Maple Shade Inn!

Innkeeper Response
To everyone who has taken the time to write a review a sincere thank you from the both of us. We would like all of our guests to feel welcome and special during their time here.

Absolute 5 stars

My husband and I had a wonderful and relaxing time at Maple Shade and thoroughly enjoyed our time there! The house is in a beautiful setting not too far from downtown Saratoga Springs and has some of the most beautiful rooms we've seen. If you're looking for a place where you can sit back, relax, and feel at home without all the kitchy B&B stuffiness of some other places, this is the spot. We took a drive downtown for dinner and it wasn't far at all. Breakfast was incredible as well, and Jo Ann even offered to give us the rest of our muffins in a "doggy bag" to go as we continued our trip. Thanks, Tom and Jo Ann for a lovely stay!

Our Favorite B&B

5 on March 29, 2013

Ross and I have been to many B&Bs over the years, but Maple Shade Bed & Breakfast is by far our favorite getaway for rest, relaxation, fabulous breakfasts and the most welcoming inn keepers. We always look forward to returning and do so approximately 3 to 4 times per year with family and friends and everyone falls in love with the beauty of the B&B, its location and of course Tom and Jo Ann.

If you want peace and quiet, THIS is the place to be !!!

5 on November 13, 2012

Unquestionably the most relaxing stay ever. The peace and quiet was just what we needed. The made to order breakfast, the immaculate and beautifully decorated room, the authentic black and white photos of Tom and JoAnn’s parents and grandparents, the amazing porch swing (complete with blanket) and the gluten free muffins that Tom made just for us (doggie bag included) were just what the doctor ordered. Tom and his Golden Retriever “Cosmo” were nothing short of terrific. This was a real life postcard. We'll absolutely be back. Our best to Tom and Cosmo. Can't wait to meet JoAnn. PS: The beautiful city of Saratoga Springs is only 15 mins away. We never made it there :D Sincerely, Vince and CaroleAnn

Countryside Experience!

The Maple Shade B&B offers the comfort of a five-star hotel in a country setting. You are treated like royalty by the owners.

Maple Shade B&B

This is a beautiful Victorian farmhouse originally built in 1875. The owners have completely renovated it. You have all the modern conveniences as well as atmosphere of 18th century. They are great hostesses -- friendly and accommodations. In the 3 weeks we have been traveling, this was our favorite place to stay.

All the amenities of a small luxury hotel, with the comforts of home. Pleasing to the eye, restful for the body, and comfort for the soul. Delightful hosts and wonderful food.

Maple Shade B&B Worth It!
