Japanese Culture. New England Tradition.
Jason and Makiko returned from Japan and opened KAEDE (Ka-eh-day) Bed & Breakfast in August of 2006, overlooking 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 tasteful fusion of Japanese and New England hospitality, savor a hearty western breakfast or sample some traditional Japanese fare. We are here to host you for your stay in Ipswich.
-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 cooked to order from a menu of western options or you can try the Japanese breakfast (7:30am to 9:00am unless otherwise arranged)
-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 and tea always available in the dining area
-plenty of space downstairs to enjoy a good book or a stimulating conversation
If you are interested in tasting a bit of Japanese fare, try one of Makiko’s delicious Japanese breakfasts:
Or maybe you would prefer an omelet, pancakes, waffles, our stuffed French toast, you are free to choose anything that you find on the menu. Or menu varies daily, but there are always 4 or 5 items to choose from, and if you like it simple we can always serve any kind of egg w/some fresh homemade bread and a couple slices of bacon on the side. Breakfast is important!
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 certainly hope you have the chance to visit us in Ipswich in any season, and we look forward to the opportunity of hosting you.
