This is a very old family friendly inn with lots of charm, located just across the street from Nancy's Restaurant in Oak Bluffs. We stayed on the third floor (Room 5) facing the harbor. The room was very tiny with an old queen bed that took up most of the room. The room had a window-pane door that opened up to a balcony (which you can't sit or walk on) to a beautiful view of the harbor. There is no a/c (there is a fan in the room) and no t.v. (not that you'd need t.v. with the beautiful ocean view but for those who can't go without it there is a t.v. in the main living room of the inn). The bathrooms are old looking, but kept clean, and they were always running out of toilet paper and hand towels. Also, if the bathroom on your floor is occupied (which ours was most of the time) you can always use one of the other many bathrooms throughout the inn. The inn provided shower towels (no beach towels provided) and face cloths, but they smelled a little bit like mildew (like they had been left wet in the washing machine for too long). The matress was clean but broken down and I'm happy to say no bed bugs, which was a big worry of mine. However, I suggest that you bring your own towels, sheets, pillows & cases if you're going to stay more than a weekend. There is a great wrap around porch on the main level of the house with a dozen rocking chairs for guests to sit on and enjoy the view at any time of the day or night. You can also bring a bike and lock it up on the porch. The only problem we had at the inn was a group of college girls (in the room next to ours) who smoked all day & night in their room. The smell reaked through the entire second & third floors and the innkeeper ignored it - even though it's clearly posted that it is a non-smoking establishment. My problem wasn't what they were smoking, but the fact that they were smoking in their room. The inn is very, very old with very old fire alarms (and who knows if they even work), and I didn't want to get stuck on the third floor during a fire with no fire escape ladders! The bottom line is, the price is great if you can put up with a few non-comforts of home and the possibility of rowdy rule-breaking college kids. The innkeeper is a very nice old lady. I'd certainly recommend the inn despite a few things that bugged me personally. We definately plan on going back again next season 2009.
