We loved our stay here. We arrived late due to our wedding's late finish, but everything was set up and ready for us when we arrived. It was a beautiful stay and super friendly. A+
I'll start out by saying that the proprietors are very friendly and responsive. I had many questions before arriving and my e-mails were all promptly responded to. That is where the good part ends. This place is dirty and so cluttered that you can't even find a place to sit in the room. The house is in bad need of repairs and paint peeling everywhere. The breakfasts were fair-to-poor. You can have anything you want, as long as it's eggs. It seems as if the owners are not really serious about running a B&B. It also appears as if they have not bothered to go and stay at other B&B's in order to benchmark their offering. Bottom line: Poor!!
I arrived 11 PM Saturday night and found an accommodating letter directing me to my room with an invitation to an upgrade at no cost the following 2 nights. The breakfast the next morning was a mushroom/cheese omelet with bread and marmalade all made from ingredients on the farm. The rooms were charming with comfortable beds. I plan on staying here next time I visit Boston.
My husband and I decided to stay last minute. We had an amazing stay - comfortable bed, clean room, great Jacuzzi bathtub and warm hospitality. Fresh farmhouse breakfast in the morning made the trip. Can't wait to return in the Spring.
A group of us stayed in this place for a weekend,for our many years after high school reunion :)..The cottage was warm and cozy and we really enjoyed the little kitchen there..Rooms were well decorated and breakfast was really delicious ( the home made omelette specially). We also visited the area in october, what I would call the "best time of the year in New England". The routes and nearby places offer great sceneries of fall foliage; we enjoyed walking through a nearby trail as well..overall a great place to stay, owners are friendly and ready to help and the price is reasonable..
Our daughter and I had a lovely stay at the Arabian Horse Farm Inn. It was truly an amazing and unique experience from our arrival to our departure. We thank you, Rick, for sharing your wonderful home and grounds with us. Tranquility at a time when it was needed most.
The proprietor was very helpful and friendly. The power had gone out, which was beyond their control. However they were still able to prepare a wonderful hot breakfast despite there being a power outage. Good stay & would definitely recommend staying in the main house.
We stayed at the charming inn for a weekend in October 2014. Our suite was spacious and well equipped. From the bedroom with it's king canopy bed, fireplace and seating area to the wet bar with refrigerator. There was a lovely large balcony with lounge chairs leading off the wet bar area. The bathroom facilities are broken up into two rooms past the wet bar. The first room contains the toilet, double sinks and vanity. The second room has the glass shower stall and oversize whirlpool tub, plus two chairs. Our breakfast was cooked to order and was delicious with bacon, sausage, eggs, English muffins and more. The nine acre property has a trail around the perimeter that passes the horse pastures and we were able to feed the horses with the carrots supplied by the hosts. Our hosts Rick and Joan were warm and welcoming and happy to recommend a nice place for dinner. I would highly recommend staying here and we will probably return.
This is a wonderful little bed and breakfast with a cozy fireplace, friendly hosts, and a convenient location. We dined at Blue Ginger for my husband's birthday. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience and we will definitely be back.
This year was the third stay I have had at the Inn on the Horse Farm. I will stay there whenever I am in the Boston area. Seven acres of peace and serenity. I discovered the Inn is less private in the winter. My previous stays were more secluded by the leaves covering the perimeter of the farm. Being able to see surrounding properties was fine, but I did miss the feeling of privacy the foliage provides. My room was wonderful. Four poster bed, sitting areas, and wonderfully decorated Inn period pieces of memorabilia. Last year I included a trip into Boston and found it very convenient drive. This year my stay was just in Sudbury and my sight seeing and dinning experiences were just fine. I love the Horse, Farm, and Inn pace as a chance to relax. Looking for fast paced stress, don't stay here. Larry Earl Wraight
The Inn on Horse Farm is located on a beautiful setting with plenty of places to wander and sit outside. My one and only complaint is the amount of perfumed air fresheners or cleaning products. I have allergies and could not breath well in the morning.
My husband and I stayed on our wedding night in the room with the whirpool tub. We felt like we had stepped back in time and really enjoyed the experience. Our only complaint was that the bed was not comfortable at all. The pillows were so firm we could not use them and would have liked a bit more comfort so that we could sleep after such a long and exciting day. Breakfast was by far the highlight - Absolutely loved the homemade jams. We would stay again except that it felt a bit pricey to not have a comfortable sleep experience. I would definitely recommend it for a fun and quirky short stay.
Thought I would try some alternate lodging on a recent trip to the Boston area. Inn at the Horse Farm was charming. Was upgraded to the best room on site. The bed was superb. Be careful which way you turn the faucets. Homemade breakfast...don't miss the pepper jelly. Spent the next morning working until noon in peace & quiet with blazing fast Internet and two Arabians meandering in the paddock below.
We were in the middle of a week in which we had been celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. We stayed in the Waldorf-Astoria the first two nights and then proceeded to drive around New England staying in B&B's. I must say our two nights at The Inn on the Horse Farm were most memorable. The atmosphere was one of calm and so much fun! Extraordinary hospitality and TLC were apparent throughout!
Nice furnishings, the host is very pleasant but was not there to greet us this time (envelope on the front door with the key inside). The king bed was comfortable. The room was large with a sitting area in the bay window. There was a window unit for cooling and radiator for heat. The shared bathroom was small (shower only) and had a strange elevated toilet! There were very few electrical outlets in the room and in the bathroom, I had to dry my hair sitting on the floor in front of the bedroom door! Breakfast ended at 9:30 which was too early for us as usual. (Who wants to get up, shower and get dressed early on vacation??) Overall a pleasant enough place. Add points if you like horses.
Beautiful, outstanding grounds. Best room in house has beautiful patio / view, excellent tub. Clean but expect pristine for rates. Good food but sparce for B&B expectations. Great jams / teas / farm fresh eggs - would have been nice to have some availability of afternoon / evening snacks.
My daughter and I had a wonderful stay at the Inn on the Horse Farm. Everything was as wonderful as it was last year when I stayed at the Inn. I had forgotten how much my daughter loved horses. She pampered all four of them and the hosts provided her with carrots to feed the horses. I missed seeing the wild turkeys that call the Inn home. Last year I saw ten of the twelve living there at the time of my visit. Just a wonderful home base for a New England get away. I am looking forward to returning again next year.
It was the perfect romantic getaway for my stay here for New Years. After spending three nights in a standard hotel it was the perfect transition to finding peace and serenity for the last two nights of my vacation. The horses were so friendly; they would walk right up to the fence and wait for you to come. The room was amazing; since we were the only guests they had upgraded our room free of charge. The hospitality was impeccable; a very nice couple runs the inn and they were always attentive to our needs. Breakfast was amazing; there is nothing like fresh eggs and a hearty breakfast to start your day. It never felt like we were staying at an inn; it felt like a home. I will definitely be spending many more romantic getaways at the Inn on the Horse Farm!
The Hosts treated my husband and I very well. Shared the history of the house with us and we even got to meet the majority of the farm animals. We decided to stay at a bed&breakfast after we found out that the average hotel stay in Boston was approximately $250-$300/night (on a good day). Although its located about 20-30 min from the City, its well worth the drive! I only wish we could have stayed longer. The horses were so friendly. The breakfasts were AMAZZZINGG! And it always felt like we were home... Strongly recommend it!
We just returned from a brief visit to this inn, a celebration of our 10th wedding anniversary. We stayed in the Tanah suite, which is beautifully furnished for comfort and grace. From the sheer bed curtains to the large jacuzzi, we felt well pampered. The rest of the inn, including a cozy looking parlor, is similarly well appointed, with just enough personal touches to remind you that this is a b&b, not a corporate inn. Joan was the perfect host, friendly yet respectful of our privacy. She prepared a fantastic breakfast for us before we headed out to visit the lovely town of Concord for the day.
We stayed in the bedroom with its own private bath. It had a nice balcony overlooking the rear of the property which was gorgeous. It was fun to feed the animals and walk around the lot. The food and owners were great. The English breakfast they made was amazing.
It was a little cluttered/busy for my taste - lots and lots of pictures on all the walls, knick knacks on almost every surface, floral curtains, floral bedspread, floral upholstery. Cons - very busy decor, a bit dusty (due to all the knick knacks), carpeting in the bathroom. Pros - the owners were nice and friendly; quiet and secluded setting; pretty easy drive to the T for a day in Boston.
Room was very comfortable and very nice. Breakfast was delicious. Coffee and tea were always available. Joan was delightful and very accommodating to my tight schedule. Horses were a joy and the farm was delightful. House was very comfortable.
