Four of us, spouses and in laws, came up to Massachusetts for a family wedding celebration on Webster lake. I located the Red maple Inn online; when I spoke with them I immediately found them to be a most accommodating Inn; Arrangements for two adult couples were easily arranged. We arrived much later for check-in than initially expected; all at the Inn were asleep. Off street parking was available to us; clear instructions for us were taped to the door; inside we found an inviting lounge area; cookies; having driven from PA, we actually sat for a while. The bedrooms were delightful and spacious; decorated with nice bedding, comfortable beds and a private bath and seating inside the room. Outside was a drip coffee set up for the early morning riser to enjoy before breakfast. At breakfast, (served at the time we selected) we found the presentation lively, the preparation careful and the flavors reminiscent of days gone by now when eating a good breakfast was expected. Clearly, this innkeeper knows his way around a kitchen. This satisfying experience was repeated throughout the weekend. More about the "lounge"; it is a living room with small service bar set up where we enjoyed our adult beverages (purchased ourselves) met and mingled with other guests and in general had a most cordial stay. I am keeping the Red Maple Inn in my portfolio because I would like to return for another stay to further enjoy the general area sans wedding obligations. Jack Hetherington
Stayed last night and the room on the first floor called the Rose e zroom. Comfortable bed and ver clean room. The bathroom was a little small. The breakfast was to die foe and the Host Lynn was so friendly and and helpful. I would recommend this to our families or friends.
Nice place in a somewhat remote area. Nice host and good food. This was on a busy road, Rt 9, and for some reason, I expected a quieter, more tranquil area. Worcester is about 15 miles east of here with a decent amount of sites and some great restaurants. Spencer is a quiet town and really a landing space for visiting events /activities outside of Spencer. Nice B & B with a very nice host.
A beautiful oasis, the Rose room so romantic with furniture and furnishings holding me in the the spirit of more connected times when things were built with care, dependability and a shared sense of worthiness. The Rose room's charming bathroom set up did not have a bathtub, but did have a very fine shower with solid tiles. The nights were quiet and peaceful. The breakfasts were a delight (with my choices made the day before from a clear list of options), with a warmth of conversation with owner John who was both respectful and friendly and brimming with thoughtful caring responses to any questions about the surrounding area. I had communicated that I would be arriving late the first evening, and everything was arranged for me to be able to enter and settle in easily and comfortably.
We spent an evening in the Duck Room of this 18th Century B&B. It was a totally warming and charming experience. The room was exquisitely decorated and functional. The morning breakfast was wonderful, and the Inn Keeper very gracious. We'll definitely stay there again if the opportunity presents itself.
We've been to the Sept Brimfield show twice (2015 and 2016) and stayed at the Red Maple Inn both times and we love it! It's so cozy and the Rose Room is amazing - comfortable, charming decor, clean, and quiet. Brimfield is about 15 minutes away (a pretty drive) and the "brown bag" breakfast is perfect for getting an early start. The Mexican restaurant just down the road (walkable) is excellent. Shari and John are so sweet and accommodating - the perfect hosts!
The innkeeper/staff at the Red Maple were most accommodating, and made our 2-night stay both stress-free and delicious. Aside from being very clean and fully decorated in period pieces, the Peach room was well equipped with full-cable TV, hair dryer and air conditioning. If you had read other reviews and like me, gravitated toward the few that mentioned spotty wi-fi or airplane-sized bathroom of this particular room, FEAR NOT! We needed in-room Internet connection (business never seems to stop) and it was strong and free - we never experienced any problems. And the bathroom is fine - it's quaint and the shower is fully stocked with built-in options of quality (not the typical hotel goo.. our hair was noticeably bouncy). The room is wonderful and although a noise cancellation device is provided for anyone super-sensitive, it was plenty quiet without it. We were provided breakfast options and could set our own time which was nice. Everything was fresh and good - a great way to start a day of antique shopping and a night at the local drive-in. Thank you so much for the getaway, Red Maple Inn team!
Greeted by John after a trying drive from Logan Airport, he showed us to our room and directed us to an excellent place for supper. Comfortable night followed by a first class breakfast set us up for a visit to Old Sturbridge Village near by.
Wow! Wow! Wow! My friend Suzanne and I biked the rise room for two glorious nights and this haven exceeded our expectations. After hours of scoring amazing Brimfield finds we got to come home to the coziest room that just put a smile on our faces from the minute we parked the car. Beds were super comfortable, spacious, well kept and elegant old world charm. Loved the honor system in the hallway snack bar, morning coffee, wine and chocolate in the evening as well as the products left in the room for our use. Including face wipes my favorite and ear plugs which I needed because my beautiful friend slightly snores. I didn't want to leave and will forever stay at Red Maple Inn for every Brimfield adventure to come. Thank you!!!!!!!
Nothing but great things to say about the Red Maple Inn. Especially loved the 40’s Jazz in the sitting room, the delicious food, and the comfortable rooms. Could not have been happier with our stay.
Shari and John are the consummate hosts. We stayed in the Rose Room on the first floor...it was charming. The restored home is lovely and the stay very comfortable. Great restaurants and interesting historical sites are close by and Spencer is a beautiful little New England town. Highly recommended.
We were very surprised at this great find. Our first trip to the New England area and I decided on this location to view the western part of Ma. The area was beautiful and the Inn was very interesting. John and Shari made us feel like family. It is out of the way, but well worth the stay.
The room was beautiful. The home was stunning. Walking into the inn you take a step back in time. It is charming, the food is fabulous, and the surrounding towns are such a joy! We will absolutely return!
My recent stay at The Red Maple Inn was wonderful! The location convenient to all the locations I planned on visiting, and in a nice safe area. The home is beautiful, staff welcoming, caring and helpful. Bathroom a bit small for someone of my size, but in the room, which was all I was looking for. Food was wonderful and plentiful, caringly prepared with fresh ingredients. I would stay again.
We enjoyed our stay at the Red Maple Inn. Our host was pleasant and attentive. Breakfast was tasty, and enjoyable. I was disappointed with the cleanliness of our room. Corners were dusty, as was the cloth decor / drapes near the bed. For a B&B, it should be sparkling and spotless, but it was not. They could (and should) do better.
I wanted to emphasize the outstanding dining experience and amazing service, but didn't want to give fewer than 5 for the other categories! In your head, please add two extra stars for both service and dining. And value. Two extra stars each for service, dining and value. You should also add "Melida" in the listing after the owners. She runs the Inn on her own from November to May and provides the service, cleanliness and dining! Her breakfast was outstanding and we love chatting with her. This is our second New Year stay at the Red Maple and we plan on booking again for 2014 ASAP. Beautiful, fabulous, snuggly, sophisticated, invitingly creaky! It's a beautiful bed and breakfast and it's perfectly run.
"Our stay at the inn was very romantic, comfortable, clean and well appointed. If your journey takes you off the beaten path, this place will suit your needs. Centrally located to either explore central or western MA and romantic enough to stay indoors. The Innkeeper, Melida, was very gracious, informative and accommodating The breakfast she prepared was imaginative and "yummy." We plan to return.
We were looking for a couple of nights accommodation and the Red Maple Inn fitted the bill perfectly. I had viewed the You Tube videos about the inn before I booked and was happy with what I saw. I was not disappointed and I would recommend the Red Maple Inn without hesitation.
