“Great Unique B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2010

Great location right in town (which is a quiet getaway away from more touristy MA areas). Owners laid back and friendly, rooms comfy combination of New England/Japan with a/c.
Any breakfast choice is great, but try the Japanese breakfast at least one day of your trip.

Stayed August 2010, travelled as a couple

The breakfast was amazing! Pumpkin pancakes, fruit bowl, and they were willing to mix and match from entree's offered. The innkeeper and his wife were very sweet, and hospitable.
The accomodations were just okay. Being an old building, there is little sound barrier between the rooms/hallways/other rooms. We heard other guest come in at 1am, and you can hear anyone walking down the hall. It didn't bother my husband, but i couldn't sleep well. They would benefit from a fan or other device that creates white noise in the room to buffer the other sounds. Our peach room was okay...the bathroom could use some revamping from the old linoleum and a new bathtub(although clawfoot was cool it was rather beat up). The bed was rather hard, not to my preference, but fine.
All in all, i'm not sure i'd stay here again. It's hard to find affordable places to stay on the north shore, and for the money it's worth it. If you like the home style of B&B's i'm sure you'd do fine here, But i have stayed at better B&B's(for more money that is)

A charming B&B. The hosts are generous with their time and offer helpful suggestions. Just a 3-minute walk from town and right across from the Ipswich public library. Also a 10-minute drive to Crane Beach, which is clean, 4 miles long and was sparsely populated on a late-August weekday. A good area for cycling and kayaking. Thursday night summer concerts at the Crane Estate.

Rooms have a Japanese decor, a refreshing change from the usual fussy Victoriana of B&B's. The only (minor) negative was a window-mounted A/C unit that filled half a window. Not a biggie.

We were in the area for an engagement party and stayed only one night. I found Kaede B&B on Trip Advisor and after reading all of the positive reviews, decided to book a room.
My husband, who in the past has not enjoyed B&Bs went along reluctantly.Well, I must tell you that we both absolutely enjoyed this experience and highly recommend it.!
Jason and Makiko and their adorable baby are absolutely delightful. They have created an atmosphere that is aesthetically pleasing as well asextremely clean and comfortable. East meets West at its Best.! The option for a Japanese breakfast was not only unique and authentic,but truly delicious.
Although it was such a short stay, we felt as if we had been a wonderful adventure.We plan to return and will spread the word.

I stayed two days at the B&B and enjoyed the american-japanese atmosphere the nice couple has built in their home. The breakfast was great, most of the ingredients are from their own garden. It's a quiet place and you'll get easy and fast to Crane Beach, Greater House, Rockport, Gloucester, ...
