My wife and I booked our first trip to Sea Mountain back in October 2013. We did not know what we get ourselves into but for that reason we booked 4 nights to see how the slower weekdays and the busier weekends are. And what can I say, we became regulars and try to spend a long weekend there every... More

Place is not cheap. The surrounding area of the town is like a ghost town. Once your inside though it's a like a cool bunglaow compound. We met good people, had a fun experience. Oh did we. It was only a Sunday and Monday but we had a relaxing time. I can only imagine a weekend night.

Words can't describe how much fun my wife and I had at Sea Mountain. What an incredible place! We were first greeted by one of the wonderful female staff who introduced us to all of the folks around the pool, then given a tour of the grounds. Our room was impeccably clean and the bed was very comfortable with quality... More

We just came back from what was going to be a one week stay at Sea Mountain. We had read some of the other reviews and expected a small but high class place. We rented a week at the Dew Villa. The villa was fantastic and we could not say anything about it, it was beautiful, very well maintained and... More

Thank You for you candid thoughts on the world class Dew Villa conveniently located right next to the sparkling clean Sea Mountain Spa and Resort. We are thrilled you loved the villa and our incredible awarded spa therapy. Sea Mountain is also very aware of the time these guests departed and the emotional problem they were having with each other.... More

I am a frequent user of Trip Advisor, but have a new account for this review for privacy. We just got back from one of several trips to Sea Mountain and had a great trip as always. Dewey does an excellent job running this place and has an amazing team who keep it together. The place is super clean and... More

My girlfriend and I went for the first time this last weekend. We were greeted by the owner who was very comforting and made my lady feel safe seeing as it was our first time. We checked in, went out to the pool and everyone was very welcoming, the staff was great and we had the best time ever. We... More

Someday, they'll make a movie about this place and, like Woodstock or Studio 54, it will be the hip thing to say that you were part of the magic. While those other cultural icons belong to days gone by, you still have the opportunity to get to Sea Mountain Inn. If you’re on the fence about going, just do it.... More

We love going to SMI. The place is totally clean, management is amazing, people are super nice. We love going when we can and meeting new fun couples. We don't understand why people hate on this place. Maybe they just can't have fun like the rest of us ;) anyways we love this place and recommended to anyone

We have been to Sea Mountain Inn 6 or 7 times over the past two years and every time we have to leave, we are very sad! The staff is amazing, the water in the mineral pool and hot-tub feels great and the atmosphere is one of love, sensuality and good times. There are happy people all around and new... More
