Have you ever wanted to getaway without actually going too far from home? It seems that you can actually do just that all while staying at some of the coziest stays in America, but right here in Massachusetts. As it turns out, there are five of America's top 20 best bed and breakfasts in the Bay State.

TripAdvisor has revealed their Traveler's Choice Awards, which include their Best of the Best in 2023. One of their categories happens to be their 'Best of the Best B&Bs (bed & breakfasts) and Inns. They are those spots that give you that nice and cozy home away from home type of feel.

While we'll let you know where these spots are so you can experience them yourself, you should also know that New England had a total of 11 of their best bed & breakfasts in their national top 25 list. And while we're feeling kind of uppity, Massachusetts technically had five in the top 19 (including the top two). So, technically, that's what we mean by 'Top 20'. But there's actually a 'Top 25' that made the full list.

So, where are these best bed & breakfasts in Massachusetts? TripAdvisor's Traveler's Choice had some things to say about each of the following spots that made the list:
