Enjoy a relaxing visit to a romantic Victorian home. Located in the Berkshires village of Norfolk, Connecticut, a 2 minute walk from the Yale Summer School of Music and Art and music venue Infinity Hall, this classic features private rooms decorated with original watercolors, new queen Leesa beds, free wi-fi, a shared bath with clawfoot tub, and three fireplaces. Outside, you will enjoy a shared wrap around porch overlooking mature gardens, and a cozy sleeping porch with beautiful sunset views.

The space
Yours is a private second floor room in a large Queen Anne Victorian with a bath shared with one other guest room.

Rates include a continental breakfast. We put coffee, tea and juice out at 8:00 am and serve continental breakfast between 8:30 and 10am. Guests are invited to join us at our beautiful Shaker dining table, or weather permitting, on our 75-foot-long shaded porch stretching the length of the house.

Norfolk has been known for more than 100 years as a wonderful escape from the stress and heat of the city. Consistently 10 degrees cooler than surrounding areas, Norfolk has become a haven for artists, including painters, sculptors, photographers, writers and musicians, many of them associated with the Yale Summer School of Art and Music located across the village green from the Maple House. Noted watercolor artist and instructor Pamela Harnois keeps her Maple House Studio on our third floor.

We were weekenders here in Norfolk for 24 years, and are thrilled to be living here full-time.

We welcome guests arriving between 3 pm and 10pm and are happy to share recommendations for restaurants and activities.

Rate is for double occupancy.

Discount for stays of 5+ nights.

The entire Maple House, which sleeps up to 8 people, can be booked for groups, wedding parties, writers retreats, family reunions or group retreats.

Other things to note
Ask us about our private and semi-private art lessons with watercolor artist and instructor Pamela Harnois, as well as artist retreats and painting parties. Pamela's work is also featured at the Norfolk Artisan's Guild, steps away from the Maple House in downtown Norfolk, just opposite the Berkshire General Store.
