Lovely place, very comfortable beds and relaxing environment. Only wish we could have stayed longer - absolutely will be back. The inn keepers were very accommodating and easy to contact. Great location near town, but not too near.

Joey and Bill are wonderful people who obviously thoroughly enjoy people. The rooms are clean and lovely the beds are very comfortable and the breakfasts are scrumptious. We got together with our kids (30's) who live in Chicago. We live in Pittsburgh so it's nearly halfway. The Anchor Inn is right in the middle of things so walks to restaurants... More

Wonderful, homey, quiet place to stay while at the Bay. Spent three nights and three breakfasts at the Anchor and all were great. Spacious room with attached bath, comfy shared areas, and breakfast that was perfect each morning after a night of fun. We stayed in the Stateroom in the front of the house. They will be doing some renovations... More

This was our third year staying at the Wee Anchor on Put in Bay, the week after Labor Day. The cottage is in the perfect location as it is in walking distance to almost everything. Very well maintained and very clean. The kitchen has everything you need to cook the food you bring. There is a gas grill on the... More

This property is close to downtown but is a nice quiet place to stay, if you like to collect your thoughts and relax for a while. It has rooms overlooking a scenic backyard, and an "indoorsy"-feeling gazebo in the backyard. The rooms are air-conditioned but the one I stayed in allowed opening the door to a balcony to let fresh... More

The breakfast hit the spot, eggs, sausage, choose of breads and bagels. Had a cheese and meat tray with juice and... More

Right next door to Anchor Inn is their Single unit cottage, "Wee Anchor Cottage". Two bedrooms, one bath, living room and full kitchen. Talk about privacy, this is the place to be. Ideal for a small family. We were able to relax and sleep comfortably, (knowing that the EMS station was right next door). Little known hide-a-away. Ask for it,... More

We searched many places before we decided on The Anchor Inn.... we definitely weren't disappointed. We were made to feel right at home and the turn of the century home has been transformed into a place you would want to stay again and again. Its right by the downtown section so walking isn't a problem to see it all. The... More

Joey, Bill, and the staff along with their pup, Boomer, at The Anchor Inn are TOP NOTCH at making you feel comfortable and right at home. It was our first trip to the island and my husband and I stayed in the "State Room" upstairs, which is tastfully decorated, clean and very comfortable. Our stay consisted of 3 mid week... More

This is the perfect location. Close to everything, but just far enough from the noise. The owners are very nice and breakfast was great. I would recommend this bed and breakfast for people who appreciate a clean place with very comfortable beds.
