Rooms on a working water front. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. Can buy your fresh seafood on the water front or walk to near by resturant. Rooms with decks and views. These rooms are fully equip.

We had both positive and negative experiences reserving multiple rooms for our family. However, things ended on a bad note as the management of this place is very poor. We dealt with a number of issues. The owner, Jane, who also does the booking, is not present whatsoever. I've seen other reviews on Tripadvisor in which people never hear back... More

Matthew and Rachel, I am very sorry that you feel this way about our Inn and about me personally. This was an unfortunate situation. In all of my paperwork, you only reserved and paid for 5 of the rooms that you used for your wedding weekend. I could have and will in the future be more detailed in cost and... More

This is our third time in two years staying at the Quahog Bay Inn. I really can't say enough good things about the Inn. First off its not really an Inn, they are a series of suites, we're in the same one bedroom suite as last year The Gull. I don't know of another place we're you get so much... More

Dated but roomy accommodations. Off the beaten track location, far from amenities. virtually no service. Phone number doesn't route to the main office so you can never reach anyone. We lost our key and tried for two hours to find someone who could help us. Did not live up to the positive reviews we'd read on tripadvisor.

Marcia, Thank you for staying at Quahog Bay Inn. We have been running the property as an Inn for 6 years, during which time we've done a lot of improvements. We have guests that stayed our first year and have come back every year since, sometime numerous times in one season. I'm sure the Inn is not for everybody but... More

We had a vacation where everything had to be rescheduled, cancelled, or delayed. The owners of Quahog helped us throughout these problems and provided a wonderful place with a great view of the water. After a full day of cancellations and delays, it was worth it to walk into our place and see the water. The place is quiet, with... More

My husband and I stayed at the Quahog Bay Inn for six nights in June. We brought our small fishing boat along to explore the coastline and kept it on a mooring ball in front of the inn. The scenery was lovely! We stayed in the Crow's Nest, which is on the third floor. The unit itself was extremely clean... More

Thank you very much for your lovely review and thank you for staying at our Inn. It was sad to see your boat bobbing around on the morning during those rainy days, but so glad you took advantage of what the area has to offer. Also glad that you had plenty of other beautiful days to be out on the... More

My family and I stayed here a couple years ago and loved it. Unfortunately, we stayed again recently and it appears to have gone a bit downhill. The view is still amazing and the staff is still personable (if a bit lackadaisical) but little service things have slipped and when you add them all up it equals a subpar stay:... More

My husband and I decided to change directions this summer and look for another weekly rental other than a cottage on LSL. I FIRST started to send our reservation request in Feb. No answer. I sent two more before asking about the lack of response on their F/B page. The response was simple. "Try Again." I did try once again..... More
