My stay at Alderwood B&B was wonderful. The Ablesons are terrific hosts. The room itself was comfortable, the room was clean, orderly, and the bathroom was also clean and supplied all necessary amenities. The highlight of the stay was Myra's wonderful home cooked breakfast, and the chance to visit around the breakfast table at a leisurely pace. Myra's paintings also...

I stayed a couple of weeks ago in this beautiful house, hosted by the charming Myra & Richard. Everything was just perfect !!!! Even before i arrived Myra's communications lead me to believe that I had found a rarity, a caring host . Alderwood is the most delightful house in wooded & quiet surroundings (well apart from the wonderful concert...

Ditto all those other excellent reviews! Myra and Richard manage to be at once gracious, elegant and down to earth. Each morning they serve up a delicious and healthy breakfast along with warm, witty and often hilarious conversation. They were helpful and available yet unobtrusive and were genuinely concerned about my needs and wants. Alderwood is set into the wooded...

The Alderwood B&B couldn't be a more peaceful, inviting, and enjoyable place to stay. After searching online for the right spot, I contacted Myra about a three night stay with my boyfriend. From the start she was kind and accommodating, and I booked our nights with ease. Upon arrival, the beautiful wood home was tucked away into a quaint neighborhood...

My husband, younger son, and I stayed here in May for my older son's graduation from Boston College grad school. Myra and Richard were so warm and accomodating.

I went to the big city, a woman with two children, to bring my teenage son to football camp at Boston College.
