  • Maplewood Inn is Beasley's home. Well-behaved small dogs (under 40 lb.) are welcome in Brookside but must be crated when left alone in the room and must be leashed in common areas and on the grounds. Dogs are not permitted in the dining areas while meals are served. Guests bringing a dog accept all liability and responsibility of their pets and any damage they may cause to Inn property or to other guests. Please, for the comfort and safety of all guests, we must adhere to a one dog limit. If you are traveling with your dog and would prefer to board, Beasley recommends Woof Pack. A pet waiver must be submitted to us within 5 days of making a reservation.
  • Maplewood Inn is best suited for children aged 6+, but we defer to parents to know what is manageable for their child. Keep in mind that guest rooms are close to each other and breakfasts are served with other guests. We want all of our guests to be able to relax and enjoy their stay. While the inn is child-friendly, it is not "child-safe" or child-proofed. If booking with children under 6, please call the inn so that we can determine if an appropriate room is available.
  • If you have food allergies, please let us know in the comments section when you make your reservation, or email the inn prior to your stay. Kindly provide as much information as possible so that we may plan accordingly. We take allergies seriously and do our best to limit exposure to allergens. The inn is cleaned regularly but other guests may bring in their own food, plus the inn is also our home. We cannot promise to not serve/prepare certain foods or to offer "buffer zones". We strongly encourage those with allergies to take all necessary medical precautions.
  • Due to state and local regulations, as well as our own ability to appropriately tend to guests, we are unable to accommodate more guests than the number listed on the room description or on the reservation form—children count toward the maximum occupancy for each room.
  • Breakfast is served from 7-8:30 am. Should you wish an earlier or later breakfast, please let us know.
