“There are some experience in life where you can just feel yourself relaxing, your mind expanding, your stress draining away. A stay at Maple House is like that. It's a brief interlude in a wonderful place and time completely separate from the rush, traffic and hassles of city or suburban life. Leave your cell phone at home - it won't work here! Instead of texting and checking messages, you'll find yourself wandering the grounds, watching the humming birds, or the ice shimmering on the tree branches. Or hiking one of the many paths through the woods, maybe to the lake shore, or into the mountains. Or sitting watching the fire in the cozy sun room. The beauty of the Berkshires surrounds you; the peace and quiet is so complete that it almost takes getting used to if you haven't been out of the city for a while.
The rooms at Maple House are beautifully appointed and very comfortable. Becky Bradley prepares fantastic and huge breakfasts. The coffee is hot and strong and good. The Bradleys are very accommodating and laid-back hosts - you will consider them friends by the time you leave.
I have returned to Maple House again and again, in all seasons. I highly recommend Maple House as the place to stay if you're looking for accommodation in the area, or as the ideal destination for a weekend or week-long getaway in the Berkshires.”

“We stayed at the Maple House B&B for a weekend in October. It was a perfect time of year to be in western Mass. The house is super sweet and the room we stayed in was great. I would stay there again in a heart beat.”

“Over the 4th of July, 2010.
After three days I left relaxed, relaxed, relaxed, in spite of two full days of day hiking. My life is too busy and too full of artificial stimulation.
I looked forward to a night of peacely quiet. Hear myself breath. When I first shut off the light, it struck me how dark it was. No, stare out the window and there are million more stars than I could possibly see at home.
There is much more to do that one might imagine. Some went rafting on the Deerfield, I went hiking to Monroe and Catamount. The absence of masses was strikingly a pleasure. Others wen to the town beach. I visited the historical society in Heath. Oh, just the country drive, meandering, turning, weaving was a beauty. My GPS helped me discover roads I might not otherwise take. Bring your camera.
Innkeepers Becky and Mike think of everything and essentially open their entire house to you. Sitting in the yard, sleeping in the hammock, reading a book on a hot day, just a pleasure. Becky is a terrific cook and the breakfast is excellent. The beds are comfy - in the summer sleep with the windows open, ah, the fresh air.
After a day or so, you stop thinking about a schedule and begin to appreciate the hills, the farms, the fields. I've brought home some amazing photos.
Read a little about arguable "The Line of Forts" that once protected early settlers from the French/Indians.
Concerts in Charlemont, skiing (a different trip) too in the winter is low-stress.
Dinners are a bit of a drive, but hey, who's on a schedule. Enjoy having the road to yourself and driving under the speed limit.”
