Great location on a bluff overlooking a working wharf/harbor. Room had been recently renovated, with tasteful décor. One complaint.....the mattress was very soft and uncomfortable, resulting in a 3 day backache after one night's sleep. Outside of the inn needs updating. Parking is limited but adequate.

Deborah has to be the nicest innkeeper we have ever met. She was so pleasant, kind, and helpful. She provided information about where to eat and what to see. She gave us a coupon for $10 per person free play at a local casino and a bottle of wine for my birthday. She was always smiling and seemed genuinely glad... More

Quiet and cozy. Bed was comfy and the staff very nice. I would recommend to any couple wanting to get away for a day or two. Parking lot is pretty narrow and steep, but that just adds to the charm. Would be nice if there was a hot tub on site.

Ok reasons we came 1. on the water, 2. single night on the weekend, 3. on the water. We decided to give this place a try and I expect we will be back again sometime soon. If you want hip, don't come here, if you want a night near the ocean and the sound of surf this may work. It's... More

We stayed in one of the Lookout rooms and it was very nice. From the private balcony, you are looking right out over the tiny wharf below and westward for the sunsets. There are couple of restaurants right at the bottom of the hill. A nice, quiet location.

The location right on the water is great, the grounds are well kept, good coffee in the room and the included breakfast was quite good. Being able to walk down the hill to the Chowder House was a definite plus. While our standard courtyard view, shower only, room was good sized and tidy it was definitely not worth $100+ per... More

Thank you for writing such a detailed review. Your stay consisted of our least expensive room which is usually reserved by guests that just need a quick nights sleep who are working in the area or just passing through. It is definitely a "no frills" room, usually not reserved unless needed for the above purpose(s). Next time, request a full... More

If you want a break from the typical beach resort, this is your spot. The Inn overlooks a really interesting fishing pier. You can watch the fisherman come in with fresh catch from your deck. The innkeeper's are welcoming and the restaurant below offers a great selection of tap beer and wine with some decent pub food. The decor at... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for two nights in late April this year, Room was lovely if perhaps little dated. Bed was super. Nice bathroom with Jacuzzi (unfortunatley it only worked at certain times so was no good to me) Nice views from the balcony. Parking was iffy (very steep) Breakfast was really good. All in all...

Not enough parking on the top level by rooms and if you get one of those coveted spots to get out you have to back out down a long, steep curving driveway. The ADA room is a hike from the parking for someone with mobility issues. If you come in late, you have to park on the lower level and... More
