Quick history...stayed here last year. Had a room on the first floor - right across from the "old" reception window. The room was small, yes, but loved it so much we came back this year. And that was BEFORE we even knew things had been renovated. This year we rented the penthouse because their prices are incredibly reasonable and weather forecasts were iffy. Figured we (2 adults, 1 child) would need some room to spread out if it rained a bunch. First of all, as you'll see in other reviews...can't say enough about John and Laura. Sweet, helpful, funny, attentive and overall lovely people. They are truly there to make your stay enjoyable and they make themselves completely available. Secondly, holy cow! The renovations are beautiful. We took a sneak peek at our room from last year and the bathroom was unrecognizable. They did a wonderful job. I never saw the penthouse pre-renovation but if it's makeover is anything like the others, then you'll be blown away. Spacious/open kitchen/dining/living area. Big flat screen tv. Air conditioning. Plenty of closet space. Stunning view of the ocean from the expansive front windows. There are 2 bedrooms. Each has a window. One of them has a washer/dryer. Small bathroom but has 2 sinks which is nice. Shower, no tub. Serious water pressure in the shower! We were one of the first guests in the penthouse since the renovations so they had a couple of little kinks to work out, but nothing big and they welcomed (no, encouraged) feedback, most of which was already in the process of being addressed. Other notes: awesome muffins/coffee in the morning and treats in the evening. Big fluffy beach towels available by the front door and easy drop off into baskets when you're done. Rain umbrellas available there too. Location can't be beat. Relatively short walk to beach. Close to everything and anything else. This year we ventured out to see the York Zoo, Kittery, Ogunquit Playhouse, etc. Even though the weather didn't cooperate, we had a heck of a time anyway. I love it at the Inn. I have no interest in staying anywhere else.
