Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Tom

We all enjoyed your friendly hospitality.

Your home is warm and inviting.

Thank you for the fire Sat. night.

We sat there for a long time while Connor and Keely played with Duke.

We learned a lot about maple syrup and were happy to buy some to take home to family.

All in all it was a perfect place to celebrate Connor's 12th birthday.

We hope to return again.

Thanks from all of us

Perfect Location For a Festive Occasion

  • 5 of 5

I searched for the perfect spot to stay for my Granddaughter's Graduation Event. I could have found no more perfect location! The country atmosphere was beautiful. The home was cozy and large enough for several groups to gather in different locations. This is the perfect venue for any gathering from weddings, to reunions, to a fun family get away. The kitchen was well stocked and the furniture was very comfortable. All was clean and well supplied.

Thanks Terry for the perfect venue for Sienna's special day!

Wonderful & Homey

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Maplewood Farm during our son's graduation. The farm is very welcoming, the beds comfortable with plenty of amenities. Charming location, great view of the working farm. The host was gracious and accommodating.

It was delightful to sit on the deck and watch the birds.

We enjoyed sitting around the living room in the evening and sharing family time. Something that is very hard to do in a hotel.

Thank you for making Maplewood Farm available through HomeAway.

Great place for a family get together

  • 5 of 5

The place has a great setting. The kids loved fishing in the lake, and the entire family enjoyed hiking through the woods. The kitchen was large for eating and the preparation of meals.
