This hotel is right on Main Street facing the cove an easy walk to the ocean. Lots of shops and nice restaurants close by. Hotel was built in 1878 and it has a lot of Victorian charm but a bit dark. Our room 208 was in good location but very Spartan. Showing its age a bit with small rooms and... More

First and foremost - this is a charming location right across from the park and the water, an easy walk to anywhere in town, with expansive views from the restaurant and lounge areas. 1880s historic styling, well-preserved in the woods and design elements for this inn. Well done and attractive. Drinks service was very good, nice bar, parking a breeze... More

Planned for a nice solo retreat on my birthday. Arrived at 4pm to learn the road I had just traveled from the Bay Area was now closed due to storm. Had beers in the hotel, very nice, and a good sandwich to go. Walked around the small guiet town then went to my 2nd floor front room. When I woke,... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night on valentines day. There was a whole reservation debacle after we booked on booking.com. They told us that the hotel was overbooked and we were transferred to their sister hotel the Hill House Inn with not much of an explanation. This was of course upsetting. After a bunch of emails over... More

This is a historic inn. As such, it has atmosphere but one has to tolerate the rather small rooms and dated plumbing. It's robutness left something to be desired - a windstorm knocked out the electricity, water and Internet ! In fact, the whole place felt like a fire trap waiting to happen.

I love historical places and this could be truly charming. The main building was built in the 1870s and it would be wonderful if the walls could tell tales of the people who stayed there over the years. BUT...sadly, we found it sorely in need of renovations. We didn't get the room we were promised (sea view) because it was... More

It is a beautiful old building that is full of history and character. The location is magnificent but the rooms are small and only a few expensive ones have good views. The restaurant and bar are great as long as you don't expect anybody to know anything about your dinner reservations. The food makes up for the delays but some... More
