Victorian Charm with Today's Amenities

At Maplecroft we pride ourselves on our warm hospitality, memorable breakfasts, attention to detail, and comfortable Victorian charm. And our ideal location in the heart of the state makes Maplecroft the perfect place from which to enjoy all Vermont has to offer.

Maplecroft Bed & Breakfast is a grand 1887 Victorian home built by Scottish immigrant and prominent Vermonter George Mackie, and features a circular tower, carved wood trim, high ceilings and period furnishings. Lovingly renovated, George Mackie's "Scottish Castle" is the perfect place from which to enjoy all that Barre-Montpelier and Central Vermont have to offer.

Owned and operated by innkeepers Dan Jones and Yasunari Ishii, who both speak Japanese, Maplecroft B&B offers three well-appointed guestrooms and two comfortable suites, all with private baths. The largest suite, located over the carriage house with a private entrance, has a full kitchen and living/dining area—making it perfect for longer term stays.

Guests feel at home at Maplecroft Bed & Breakfast and enjoy meeting our gentle West Highland White Terrier, Barney. We serve a full hot breakfast in our comfortable dining room and invite you to relax in the parlor by the fireplace, play board games, read or play the grand piano. In summer you can sit on our wrap-around porch and enjoy a gentle breeze and a good book. Staying in touch with the office or loved ones while you're away is easy. The entire house is Wi-Fi and cell phone accessible.

From Maplecroft's original granite steps, it's just a short walk to Main Street Barre's shops and restaurants, the Vermont History Center, the historic Barre Opera House, the Aldrich Public Library, the historic Old Labor Hall, and Studio Place Arts Gallery and Art School. Barre is also home to the Rock of Ages Granite Quarry and Visitor's Center, Mill Stone Hill Touring Center, and the nationally known Hope Cemetery where you can take a walking tour of locally-carved granite memorials. Innkeeper Dan Jones, in his role as the Executive director of The Barre Partnership, knows the area well and is happy to help you decide what to see during your visit.

Maplecroft Bed & Breakfast is a favorite of visitors to Norwich University in nearby Northfield, the Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier and Goddard College in Plainfield where visitors, alumni and parents enjoy Maplecroft's relaxing atmosphere and the restaurants and attractions in the Barre-Montpelier area.
