This was our first stay at Pressey House B&B. Sharon made our college drop-off easy, relaxing and fun. This is our new home away from home. Breakfast is delicious, plentiful and always flexible. The view is spectacular and the house is spacious and comfortable with plenty of books, magazines and games to enjoy along with the warm fire. The location... More

The Pressey House is a very nice B&B in a beautiful setting at the end of a lake. Sharon is a friendly hostess who provided delicious breakfasts and good conversation. There was lots of seating available on the lawn and dock from which to admire the view, and plenty of watercraft and toys were provided. Overall this was a lovely... More

This was my wife and I first stay at a bed & breakfast. The location and the hospitality are perfect. The inn sits right on the lake. You can swim, canoe, kayak or just relax on the dock or lawn and enjoy the view. The inn is well appointed with all the modern conveniences with just the right amount of... More

Great location and rooms, and wonderful people! Location on the lake with access to water toys made our college dropoff stay relaxing, picturesque, and lots of fun! Couldn't ask for nicer hosts...local knowledge and flavor , and very comfortable rooms! We will be back!

The Inn is right out of a movie - warm, welcoming with just the right amount of creeks and squeaks. Comfortable and abundant sitting areas, seemingly unlimited extras - kayaks, games, books, paddle boats - for your enjoyment. Breakfast was decadent and the Innkeepers treated us like we were family. Well, better than family, actually. I am already planning a... More

A simple B&B with great breakfasts and a beautiful location. We very much enjoyed reading by the lake, swimming and taking a canoe ride. We were visiting our sons who are working at a near by Boys Camp (Pine Island Camp) and found Pressey House to be comfortable and clean and the owner (Sharon) to be very friendly and helpful.

We stayed here while visiting our sons at a nearby camp. The location was ideal. It is right on the lake and there are all sorts of water toys: canoes, kayaks, tubes. We also enjoyed just sitting by the lake reading. Nice room and great homemade breakfast as well.

I feel so lucky to have found Pressey House. We were visiting New England Music Camp and wanted to find a place to stay on the same lake. My husband and I stayed in the loft; it was really roomy, had a kitchen, and a great view of the water. Sharon and Henry were warm and friendly. They have all... More

The Pressey House is a wonderful place! My son and I stayed here for a night before heading off to summer camp. It was so fun to be right on the lake, and we had a great time kayaking, fishing, and swimming off the dock. The room was lovely and comfortable, and the homemade breakfast in the morning was fantastic.... More

If you're looking for that "SPECIAL" relaxing or romantic get away, this is your place! Not like any B&B you've ever experienced. They treat you like family and the surroundings are absolutely gorgeous. Way more than I ever expected!! Treat yourself to an AMZING get away
