The reviewer who called this inn romantic must have been high on something. This inn is way past its prime. I have stayed at many inns that I would call romantic, but this isn't one. The best thing I can say is that it has a beautiful view of the harbor.
We stayed in the Meeting House, a musty, decrepit, unsafe excuse for an inn. When we checked in, we were given a key that we were told would only open one outside door and the door to our room. That entrance has a stairway without a railing, not only dangerous but probably illegal in a residence of that type. My husband managed to make it to the second evening before he fell on the stairs.
The parking lot for that building has NO lighting (not even burnt-out bulbs), and the "ramp" to the ground level from the parking lot is a series of ramshackle boards with loose railings--and, of course, it has to be maneuvered in total darkness (except for a full moon). The second night after my husband's accident we noticed another entrance because the light happened to be on through the window. I tried the key and found that it worked. And wonder of wonders, there was a staircase with a railing there.
As for the room itself, it had some kind of ugly shabby flat carpeting that also was in the hallway, covering uneven floorboards. The pillows were what I can only describe as "gross." They must have been around for at least 20 years. The bathroom was so small, one could hardly close the door when inside. The fan provided because there was no air conditioning didn't work (and it was very hot when we were there). The bed had a decent mattress, and some of the furniture, notably the dresser and the bed frame, was in a sturdy Victorian style. The included breakfast was tasty but nothing special.
The biggest complaint was the safety issue; there is no excuse for those shortcomings. I mentioned them to the "manager" and the only thing she said was she would tell Tim, the owner. No concern, no apology, and the best poker face I have ever seen. She said she wasn't aware of those issues, but she had clearly been working there a long time; she was the one who had recommended the room to me when I made the reservation. And it was not inexpensive for what you get.
I would not recommend any rooms in the Meeting House.
