Our Bed & Breakfast
Maple Rock B&B is a newly constructed five bedroom bed and breakfast located in Potsdam, NY. Owned and operated by Audrey and Jake Roberts, Maple Rock is surrounded by meadows and maple trees, while only being a two-minute drive from the village of Potsdam. In addition to the B&B, Audrey also offers cooking classes for guests and the local community in their cherry and slate inspired kitchen. Cooking classes focus on using local, seasonal ingredients to create a delicious and nutritious meal that easily can be replicated at home.
During the fall, guests can sit on the back deck or lounge in the screened-in porch while watching the leaves change. Winter brings guests indoors to enjoy the warmth of the fireplace in our great room while watching the snow fall. Whether your day takes you cycling on a country road, golfing or skiing, you'll enjoy your stay in the spacious rooms each with a private bathroom, and of course, a delicious breakfast featuring local ingredients from North Country farmers.
Our Property's History
Maple Rock Bed and Breakfast, owned and operated by Jake & Audrey Roberts, is situated on over 100 acres of land which has been in Audrey’s family for over 50 years. Where the B&B now stands was originally the home of Audrey’s Great Grandparents. In 2008 the entire house was engulfed by fire, but leaving the foundation unscathed. Almost seven years later, Audrey decided to pursue her dream of a bed and breakfast and the existing foundation provided the perfect location for Maple Rock Bed and Breakfast.
We arrived at the name "Maple Rock" due to the plentiful maple trees that line the property, and a large boulder deposited by a prehistoric glacier in the center of a grove of maple trees on the property. Growing up, Audrey and her brothers fondly recall the days that their Grandfather (who lived nearby) would walk with them to "Big Rock," where they would spend the day climbing and jumping off the rock. The very large piece of glacial erratic can be seen near one of the property's many walking trails.
