My boyfriend and I want to take a weekend trip to see the fall foliage in New England. Any suggestions on where to stay (maybe in MASS or VERMONT) and specifically where (like hotel/bed and breakfast?)

THANKS! :-)

You need to book accommodations NOW for a fall foliage weekend (in VT anyway). Many places get booked months in advance so you may have a little trouble finding availability. If you can come mid-week you'll have much more choice.
Good luck!

Any time frame for your visit, or how far north you want to go? We're in northern NH and our colors change before other parts do. Some of the trees up here are already starting to change, nothing major, but different colors are starting to show in various places. Like VTER said - the sooner you book your accommodations, the better - places fill up fast.

I've recently noticed that trees under stress, such as maples found in or along side of a swamp, are starting to already turn colors in my location.

I would stick to VT or NH over Mass. North Conway or Lincoln would be your best bets in NH. I don't know too much about VT. NH's mountains are more spectacular....more rocky and jagged peaks compared to the rolling tree covered peaks of VT (but trees are what you're coming for). Either one will offer amazing views though. Just remember, it happens much sooner in the mountains than in the lowlands, or even areas just a little south.

I didn't get the whole leaf thing when I moved out here until I actually went up and saw it. It's truly an awesome time to get outside. I can't wait to hike this fall. I'm already seeing some color change on the coast.

The big difference between VT & NH are the trees - Vermont's land, corner to corner, border to border, is covered with almost 100% deciduous trees (the ones that turn) whereas NH (well, Northern NH anyway) has a lot of evergreen - as can be seen in a photo above. The Monadnock Region of NH looks more like VT. Vermont's landscape is more rolling hills/mountains and agrarian (lots of open farmland), whereas NH (again, speaking for the north) is more ragged/rugged/forested like fishnfool mentioned.
They are both good destinations. If you choose to stay in area such as Littleton or the St. Johnsbury, VT area, you can visit both!

Why are those trees stressed?
