About the property

5 room, 3 bedroom apt, living room with queen pull-out couch

Come stay in an apartment in the Maple Grove Farmhouse built in 1823. The house is surrounded by 140 acres of fields and woods for great hiking. Take a walk to the beaver pond that sits at the foot of the hill; if you get up early enough you will see the beavers. Swing under the huge maples or walk through flower beds and vegetable gardens or just sit and write. Cozy up inside with a good book or whip up a great meal. This is a wonderful place to get away from it all. Whether visiting family for a few weeks or viewing the magnificent colors of our New England fall foliage or on a romantic winter escape, enjoy your own five rooms of tranquil space.

Visit Brimfield, the Antique capital of the world, Sturbridge Village, see life as it used to be, Quabbin Reservoir with hundreds of acres of trails, Wauchusett mountain skiing or disc golfing at the Barre Falls Dam. If attending a wedding at Allen Harding Estate, Hartman's Herb farm, meditating at Barre's Buddist Insight Meditation Society, or visiting your student at Eagle Hill School, Maple Grove is right nearby.

Why Rebecca Southwick chose Barre

I love our small New England town, stone walls, and beautiful town common. The townspeople are the best! When we had a fire in 1963 and half the house was gone, Barre townspeople volunteered and helped my Dad rebuild. That's why I love living here!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Nice, clean, cozy place to stay while we visited family in the area. Kitchen was very well equipped including many pantry items which saved grocery money. Enjoyed walks in the nearby woods and also several antique stores and restaurants. Very friendly owner. Would definitely stay again.

Quiet location

  • 3 of 5

We arrived admittedly on a wet day but the whole apartment felt and smelt damp. There is a hole in the bathroom floor that has clearly been there a long time and water comes in through the kitchen ceiling! A very unpleasant odour came out of the bathroom sink when you ran the hot water, the fridge was not turned on and had quite a few condiments from previous guests in it (4 bottles of mustard for example). The bathroom is downstairs, but does have a brilliant showerhead. Saying all of this, we only slept there as we were out from early in the morning until late in the evening and it proved a good base for our travels.

The area is very quiet and pretty.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry that this guest was not as comfortable as possible at our house. They did come at an especially wet week in which we had an unusual rain and wind storm that ripped a corner of the roofing off. We have just finished replacing the whole roof with new plywood and shingles. Hopefully, we will never have a leak again! The hole in the floor was a small knot hole that had fallen out but had two layers of sub floor beneath it. It is now filled. We try to make our place as comfortable as possible for our guests, and when there is a maintenance issue, we like to take care of them right away.

Wonderful place to stay in the countryside

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in one of the farmhouse apartments for 3 nights and loved it. It was clean and had all amenities we could ask for. Rebecca warmly welcomed us when we arrived. We had all we needed in the kitchen, enjoyed the BBQ and deck and had dinner at the picnic table in the garden. We visited with 3 generations and everybody were very happy with the stay.

Thank you Rebecca!

Comfortable House in a Beautiful Country Setting

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Maple Grove Farmhouse was very nice and comfortable. Very clean upon arrival and had everything we would need for our stay (we were here for 3 months). The property is gorgeous and close to town. We will definitely be staying here again when we come back to Massachusetts and we highly recommend that you do too.
