Welcome to the Maple Shade Mansion

A Charming Bed and Breakfast Located in Brockway, Pennsylvania

Surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens, this stately Queen Anne Victorian mansion offers the perfect setting for a romantic getaway, business trip, relaxing reprieve or social event. The home was built in 1889 in the heart of Brockway, a charming town in Western Pennsylvania, as a private residence for lumber baron, R.L. Buzard.

In 2014, Brockway natives, Sharon and Peter Varischetti, purchased the then deteriorated home with a mission to return it to a place of grandeur and elegance. After nearly three years of restoration, and with many of the original details remaining intact, in 2017 the doors to the Maple Shade Mansion were opened.

The magnificent home welcomes guests from around the world to enjoy five elegant guestrooms and suites all uniquely designed and filled with stained glass windows, rich woodwork, antique furnishings and modern amenities.  Each of the rooms are named after prominent townspeople who played a part in the history and growth of “Brockwayville’s” early years

Large verandas offer the ideal spot to relax and take in the beauty of the surroundings while reading a book, savoring a glass of wine, or planning your itinerary.  Victorian-inspired gardens surround the Mansion and offer picturesque trellises, arbors, exotic plants and thousands of breathtaking flowers.

Together, Innkeeper Sharon Varischetti, and Manager Karl McCall, take great pride in delighting guests with superior accommodations, delicious breakfasts, special events, and can’t miss culinary experiences. We hope you’ll join us!
