Our “Personal Touch”


Many of our guests tell us that their staying with us is the first time they have stayed at a bed and breakfast. We try to put our guests at ease by showing them the all the wonderful things they have access to and can use. One of the things that our guest tell us they really appreciate about staying with us is all our attention to detail and our personal touch. Our personal touch is our effort to make every guest feel welcome and appreciated.

When our guests arrive we accompany them through the home our living room, dining room (we show them the coffee maker they will have access to during their stay), screened porch, and beautiful grounds. All of these are open to our guests for their use. We escort them to their bedroom and walk with them around the second floor common spaces, our sun room and large deck.

We take the time and effort to make sure our guests experience our personal touch. We want each guest to feel welcome and that they can find everything they might need to make their stay enjoyable.

We would love to have you stay with us allowing us to make your stay memorable.

A Great Place For Business Travelers!!

travel

Hotels often advertise that they business traveler “friendly,” when in fact they really are not. Hotels often offer small cramped rooms with limited space for the business traveler to spread out and do their work. Who can forget the nights of kids running up and down the halls making quite a racket? Relaxing? Not very.

The Maple Knoll Inn is a great place for business travelers. Our weekends are usually busy, but you can usually get room weekdays. We get a fair number of business travelers staying at the Inn. They appreciate the spacious common areas’ the Inn has to offer. Why stay cooped up in a small room at a hotel when you can spread out in our spacious living room, dining room, sun room, deck or screen porch. Take advantage of our free WiFi while enjoying a cup of coffee or tea in our quiet stress free environment. Enjoy everything the Inn has to offer. Oh and no noisy kids running up and down the halls!

Travel is stressful enough! Where you stay the night should be a quiet relaxing haven.

In the area for business, how about staying with us?
