My wife and I have stayed at this B&B several times over the years and have also brought friends there when traveling together and have recommended it to others. We live north of Boston. It is an ideal place to rest on the way to NYC if one is going there for an opera or a show, allowing you to arrive in NYC rested without having to spend a night in the city and pay city rates. The owners, Steve and Susan are friendly, interesting people. Steve is a master furniture builder, commissioned by the Boston Symphony to build a new organ enclosure, and has build all of the fine and comfortable canopied beds in the inn. Breakfast is served at a large common table that invites friendly conversation over delightful baked goods, fruit, cereal, and coffee. I am an early riser and have often sat by the fireplace with coffee and computer, relishing the quiet, traditional surroundings. Susan's family was in the inn business on either the Vineyard or Nantucket...can't remember which. But she and Steve have it down, as it were, and we always look forward to seeing them and sharing their hospitality.
