Family loved this property! Felt like trip back to the 50's. S'mores around a fire, boating, golf, biking, dining....all had a feel of yesteryear. Our room was spacious and the amenities kept my family occupied all weekend. Highly recommend.

We just got married and arrived at the Inn the next day. From the start you could tell the staff was friendly and caring. Earl was a big help. All the staff was great, Faye in the dining room was gracious and kind. We wanted to go on the cruise but initially we were too early in the season. However... More

The Tides is lovely -- our suite and view were really nice, staff very friendly, breakfast was nice and quick -- but unfortunately the weather was cold, gray and wet, so we didn't get to take advantage of all the outdoor amenities of the resort. We'll have to return when the weather is warm so that we can go on... More

Beautiful facility, thoughtful helpful staff, wonderful food - really magical pillows. Highlight was the green smoothie delivered to the room at 7am!!! Personal outreach by the GM shows that guest attention is the priority throughout the ranks. Loved it thru and thru.

Stayed here ove Easter. The view from our room was wonderful. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. We had Sunday brunch at the restaurant and everything was delicious...quite a variety. Everywhere on the property, the views are spectacular. We had a glass of wine in front of a roaring fire on the patio overlooking the river. Service was... More

A very inviting environment! The staff was courteous, helpful and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. The property has an excellent, scenic location with a ton of traditional and unique (Frisbee golf) activities available. However you decide to spend your time you can't help but relax. The restaurant is top notch - we ate every... More

Thank you for your feedback. It seems you were here for a meeting and we take pride in offering facilities for groups from 10 to maybe a complete takeover of the property. We always try to balance the needs of our business and leisure guests but in all honesty everyone seems to have such a good time it is sometimes... More

Great, if a little pricey, place to relax on the water. This is a top notch hotel/resort and they aim to please. Great rooms, fabulous amenities (bikes, tennis courts, fire pit, spa). The food is beyond amazing and the service is fantastic. Beautiful views of the water from almost anywhere on the propery. If you are in the area, this... More

We had a wonderful visit to The Tides Inn this Christmas. The property is beautiful. The rooms are nicely appointed. And the staff is just incredible. They're friendly, always willing to help, and adept at anticipating needs. We love taking the bikes out for a ride around town. It's gorgeous nearby and definitely worth exploring. We look forward to returning... More

The Tides just speaks to the heart of a perfect escape, waterfront location, small town charm and excellent service, unmatched and consistently superb...all within the confines of personal care. The daily activities are diverse, the dining room and bar are trendy with creative meals and beverages, and the on site spa and dock allow for complete enjoyment. You find yourself... More
