I stayed at this B and B for one night while on business in Sudbury. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and Peter's hospitality was bar none. The guesthouse is close to downtown and some good restaurants. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone passing through Sudbury or staying for a while. Thanks Peter for making my...

This is a gorgeous B&B, with relaxed hosts, king size beds, beautiful wood work in all the rooms, and walls painted in Caribbean pastel colours. Oh, and a delicious breakfast on the balcony overlooking the garden comes with the package. The wind sculpture turns in the breeze while you sip on great coffee and learn a little about Sudbury. What's...

We spend a Night in Sudbury and had a wonderful night at the Artisan Guesthouse. The Guesthouse was easy to find and the owner is really nice. He made us great breakfast in the morning and told us a lot about Sudbury. We enjoyed the time at the Guesthouse.

This guesthouse was everything I had hoped for...a quiet place to collect my thoughts before presentations. It was spacious with a sitting area in the bedroom, a separate adjoining room with sofa and even an outdoor patio. All great places to check and respond to emails, write etc. I loved all the attention to detail (having a bathrobe available was...

Three of us stayed at the Artisan Upstairs last month, although there were initially to be five of us. Our hosts were quick to let us change the reservation after booking. They also rolled with the fact that one of us has food sensitivities. And they just seemed like down to earth people. The B&B part of the house is...

Excellent time - warm, cozy and inviting - wanted to stay longer but life calls - it is a hidden gem of the norht for sure. This was our first B&B experience and so glad it went so well. The King Size beds offered were so comfortable - it made for a great nights rest - so glad the owners...

We had a two week stay at this B'n'B and enjoyed a Gourmet breakfast every morning. Pete & Linda gave us an upgrade to the two room suite which was excellent to work from (although missing a desk). The location of the B'n'B is a residential area, which is an average area. What makes this B'n'B ideal is the proximity...

Our arrival was delayed till 9pm due to a road crash so we arrived in the hours of darkness and left early the next day. Disappointing as this was in a lovely location. The host was really friendly and cooked up an amazing omelette for breakfast with fresh herbs and pancakes with an incredible delicious strawberry jam. There was a...

I'd been meaning to make a return visit to Sudbury for many years, but wasn't sure what to expect (since I lived there back in the '60s). I found the Artisan Upstairs Guesthouse online, so I booked my room based solely on the online reviews and photos. I was more than satisfied with everything at the Artisan Upstairs! While the...

Who knew you could find the Caribbean in Sudbury! Came to Sudbury for the first for a sad occasion but this warm, clean and friendly B&B made us feel like we were on a mini vacation instead. Spacious and cozy , tropics-inspired, rooms and unbelievable, healthy, breakfasts. We absolutely recommend this place!
