OUR STAYPosted Oct 18, 2013
Pros: B & B very nice and relaxing
Cons: Lights by the front entrance.
Location: very nice. only less than 5 miles from the T going into Boston
It was very nice, at first we werent to excited because we were put in the cottage and the accomdations werent what we expected. We told Joan about it,and she was very gracious to move us to the room in the main house that we were told we were going to have. Private bath room and whirlpool tub. Than was very nice. The grounds are very nice and the staff made great breakfastes. They need to put lights out by the front entrance, very hard to see at night when your coming home.

Great location and staff, ... but lackingPosted Sep 18, 2013
Pros: location and innkeeper
Location: very near historic areas; also a quiet place in the middle of populated area
This is a wonderful house in a very nice location. The innkeeper is pleasant and prepares an excellent breakfast. The grounds need more attention and the room was just too "busy" with accessories everywhere. There were little items missing; no towel rack near shower or lavatory; steps to large hot tub/bath not safe for older adults. Our room was the largest and possibly best room in the house - still not quite worth the price paid.

I would not recommendPosted Jul 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
I was not very pleased with my stay, I have stayed in several B&B for pleasure so when this was the only accommodations I could find while traveling on business that had availability I was not concerned. I found the out-of-the-way location to be a disappointment. I did not have cellular or internet connection from my room (although they said they provided WiFi - I noticed even Joan struggled to keep her connection from down stairs). The location was such that I was not able to walk anywhere for dinner my only option was delivery from Gino's Pizzeria which was awful. The room condition was in poor condition and in need of a make-over. There were nicknacks EVERYWHERE, not a spare surface space anywhere. Unfortunately they were in dire need of dusting or removal from the build up of dust. The water facets had built up hard water deposits and did not work well. I was so glad I only had to stay one night.

Shabby Chic at The Horse FarmPosted Jun 23, 2013 on Hotels.com
The Inn on the Horse Farm - a ramshackle old main house with an addition of an independent cottage - is a delightful place to unwind, even on a business trip. The Innkeepers were happy to serve a delicious breakfast (usually featuring FRESH eggs) at the ungodly hour of 7:00 am (perhaps that isn't an ungodly hour to farmers, but then, I'm not a farmer.) I noted other reviews that mention the tub in the cottage was uneven and the farmhouse needed updating. To really enjoy yourself at The Horse Farm, with the rooster, the horses, the ducks, you have to give yourself over to the experience. It is an OLD house and has the aches and pains of old houses. If, like me, you find that charming, delightful and adding to your adventure of being "somewhere else" - this is the place for you.

Small inn with great hostsPosted Nov 7, 2012 on Hotels.com
Stayed here several times, as this Inn is convenient for visiting family in the far Boston suburbs. Inn sits well back from the road so it feels private and quiet. Rooms are very comfortable and decorated with a horse theme that many will find charming. Full breakfasts are well prepared to order.

Authentic New EnglandPosted Oct 25, 2012 on Hotels.com
This historic and well-maintained small horse farm is in a grand old house right off the main road, but set back far enough to be quiet and peaceful. Hosts were totally accomodating: we had to leave at 6 am and they made us bagel sandwichs to go and gave us travel mugs for our coffee. A good base camp for leisurely days and weekends. Doing business in Boston or Cambridge from here would take discipline, and patience with traffic. But what a place to come back to.

Historic place.Posted Oct 23, 2012 on Hotels.com
It was lovely. Very nice location. Breakfast exceptional. The toilet dripped all night, but the people were very happy we reported this. It is a very old place and leaks can happen. I'd go there again.
