Japanese Culture. New England Tradition.

Jason and Makiko returned from Japan and opened KAEDE (Ka-eh-day)  Bed & Breakfast in August of 2006, on Town Hill atop the downtown of historic Ipswich, Massachusetts.  Located in what is known as the Coburn Home (1845), KAEDE combines a touch of Japanese culture with New England charm in this historic Federalist building.  Come enjoy a simple and tasteful fusion of Japanese and New England hospitality, savor a hearty Western style breakfast or sample some Japanese fare.  We are here to host you for your stay in Ipswich.

Amenities include:

-10 individually and tastefully appointed rooms, all with private bathrooms (all the bathrooms are en suite except for the SAKURA(Cherry room) which is located across the hall- still private to the room)

-Full breakfast every morning

-All rooms include air conditioning, access to hair driers and irons, wireless Internet, 5 rooms also include a full line-up of cable TV channels (and 5 do not have TVs for those of you who find bliss to be a less digital experience)

-Softdrinks, water, and tea always available in the dining area

-Plenty of space downstairs to enjoy a good book or a stimulating conversation


Relax in the den on the tatami sitting area:


Take a look at the rooms, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.  We hope to have an opportunity to host you on your next visit to Ipswich, and we look forward to hosting you.
