“A lovely touch of Japan in beautiful Ipswich.”
Reviewed 29 October 2012

At a friend's recommendation, stayed here on Oct 26th. Booked the Kaede (Maple) room and was pleasantly surprised. Room was well-appointed and the bay windows add to the ambiance of the room. Felt like I had gone back to Colonial times with a touch of Japan to boot! Trip's first good night sleep. I had the windows slightly opened and, it was so quiet outside, you could hear a pin drop. Being from Hawaii, the Japanese style breakfast was purrrrrrrfect and addressed my cravings for home style food. Located within walking distance of downtown Ipswich, which is a gem of a town. Be sure to check out Crane Beach and nearby Russell Orchards. Dined at Ithaki which is a Mediterranean styled restaurant. A bit trendy but food was good and I enjoyed the local Ipswich rum. Jason, Makiko and Asuko (daughter) were the epitome of what great hosts should be. I also had the honor of meeting Makiko's okasan (mother), who was visiting from Japan. Long story short, strongly recommend Kaede's and will definitely return. A Hui Hou! :)

A lovely B&B located right in the center of Ipswich. The Museum and restaurants are a short walk away. The hosts are delightful and helpful. The rooms tastefully decorated and clean. Te breakfasts, both Japanese and American were delicious.

We booked this place only one day in advance looking for a place to stay on our way to Maine. It was reasonably priced and much more enticing than staying at a budget hotel. The Japanese influence can be seen in the décor and smelled throughout the home, probably due to the cooking. It is a very large home, the owners were extremely friendly and we were able to sit and talk with Jason during breakfast. It was a very relaxed and casual environment. His wife cooked us up some breakfast, which we picked off of the whiteboard menu. Coffee and fruit were served and my friend absolutely loved her omelet.

At first I liked the extremely hard bed when I first lay down but it was not so kind throughout the night for either of us. Although everything was clean the house is definitely felt its age, and the bathrooms and towels looked quite tired. There was plenty of parking behind the house and the little main street in the town was right down the street.

This is a place with history and the owner knows it! It was a well-kept property, nice grounds, and beautiful interiors. It was clean and comfortable. I will come again. The breakfast was great! It was close to downtown. The owners were very friendly.

My husband and I were looking to spend 2 days at Crane Beach and just wanted a place to rest our heads for the night. We had stayed at Kaede before and knew it would fit the bill. There is nothing fancy at the inn, but the innkeepers are very welcoming and we felt very comfortable. The room was pleasant and the bed very comfy. The breakfast in the morning is hearty and good, and you can even request an authentic Japanese breakfast. (The innkeeper's wife is Japanese.) If you are looking for a quiet, hospitable B&B in a quiet area, this is the place. We plan to return the next time we need a place to stay when we go to the beach.

The owners are friendly, welcoming and attentive. The rooms are clean and quaint. Good parking, very safe, close to shops and beach. And the food is absolutely delicious! I highly recommend this inn, and would definitely stay there again.

The Kaede was my first stay at a B&B. Mixing Japanese decor with a New England area was unique. Lovely photos, furniture and artwork throughout the home. Due to bookings, I actually stayed in 2 rooms: the Willow and Chestnut. Both very clean, comfortable beds, private, quiet. Jason & Makiko were great hosts, friendly and helpful. Be sure to indulge at their wonderful breakfasts. The stuffed French Toast with apple jam was marvelous! As a solo traveler, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Kaede.

Room Tip: Both my rooms were at the back of the house where there is a separate entrance -- easy access to par...
