Description

Circa 1893. Located in the heart of New England in Westborough, Massachusetts this three-story Eastlake Victorian bed and breakfast is in the Boston Metro-West area. It was built as a Christmas gift in 1893 by Forrest W. Forbes, a prominent sleigh maker, for his wife. The company became the largest local manufacturer and America's oldest. Relax on the wraparound porch with refreshments. Snacks are available any time. The needs of both business and leisure travelers are provided for at this inn.

Two Scrumptious Breakfasts

Thank you Deborah and Jim. Our second stay was as delightful as our first. The room (especially the tub) were wonderful. We thought we stumped you with our various dietary restrictions buy you made two scrumptious breakfasts for us. If we return to the area next year, we will definitely return!

Best B&B in the world

Our stay was for 14 nights an every minute we were treated like "Family". We cannot express our gratitude for the excellent accommodation, breakfasts and to stay in these magnificent rooms was truly wonderful! This is definitely the best B&B we have ever stayed in anywhere in the world.

This B&B was truly a delight.

My husband and I came from South Carolina to attend a wedding and this B&B was truly a delight. Never have I felt so much more relaxed and "at home" than while here for vacation. Yes - The jacuzzi is great and WoW! the breakfast too! But the hospitality of Deborah and Jim I feel are what set the mood for our entire weekend. Words cannot express my gratitude for showing us such kindness and welcoming us as if we were family. Hotels can be so cold - its defintenately worth staying here. Much love and blessings

Romantic and Nostalgic Return Home

My wife and I recently stayed at The Sleigh Make Inn B&B during a vacation to the town of my youth. Both of us, now recently retired, have been planning this trip for many years. Returning to Westborough, the town I loved growing up in, was one of several highlights of the trip. The Sleigh Maker Inn is absolutely fantastic. The food was delicious, the rooms warm and accommodating and the innkeepers...well, they are the epitome of the modern day innkeepers. Deborah and Jim are warm and friendly, easy to talk to and make you feel as if you have known them for years. If you are looking for a short/long term stay..romantic or otherwise, you need to consider this B&B. We had a great experience and are already planning to return in the future for another Fall or Winter getaway.
