EXPERIENCE VERMONT FROM ITS HEART
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.

The largest suite, located over the carriage house with a private entrance, has a full kitchen and living/dining areamaking 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.
