Autumn Colors and Fall Foliage
The autumn colors and fall foliage at bed and breakfasts can be remarkably beautiful to take in this time of year. We would like to feature one B&B known for this season’s splendor, the appropriately named The Maple Leaf Inn of Barnard, Vermont. They are ten miles north of Woodstock, Vermont on a beautiful lake. It is an elegant Victorian style farmhouse nestled within sixteen acres of maple and birch trees.
The friendly owners, Nancy and Mike Boyle, welcome you to come anytime of the year since they are open year round. In fact, four of their bedrooms are named after the four seasons: Autumn Woods, Winter Haven, Spring Hollow, and Summer Retreat. They have seven guest bedrooms (six are pictured below) that are spacious and luxurious with all of the mattresses recently upgraded to king-size pillow top mattresses. Five of the rooms have wood-burning fireplaces and four of the rooms have whirlpool tubs.

Between the two of them, Nancy and Mike speak the following languages: English, Russian, German, and Italian. They enjoy conversations with guests from all over the world. Now is the perfect time to enjoy a fall vacation. If you need to hire an interim innkeeper for your bed and breakfast, you should. Nancy and Mike welcome everyone to their lovely and quiet inn set in a scenic area with lots of fun activities. See them talk about The Maple Leaf Inn in the video below.
