This was our weekend away from work, school, roommates, and the rush of Boston. We were greeted by Jackie, the lovely, most-knowledgeable-about-wonderful-things-to-do proprietress of this stunning old inn. Ask her for suggestions and she's got a pocket full (actually, a large 3-ring binder!)
The building itself, although an old mansion, had lovely features, such as: spacious common areas (several outside seating areas, tv room, sitting rooms, etc), beautiful hardwood floors, up to date windows, old-timey looking, but well-working - door, window & bathroom fixtures and views, views, views.
We picked a room with a balcony and it was well worth it. The rooms are a bit small but only compared to resorts or large hotels. If you want a resort room or large hotel, go elsewhere. This place is all old-style charm and old-style charm is cozy, not huge or lavish.
The linens were clean and crisp. The water had good pressure. But, really is this why you're here?! NOPE.
The view from our room was breathtaking and I hated the thought of leaving it. With my head on the pillow of The Point room - I was awed by water, sand, sailboats, seagulls, and ocean breezes.
Our balcony view was perfect - we gazed peacefully across the small inlet to a wee island (Wicket Island?) and eventually just swam across the water to it to explore.
The balcony was shared with another room - and equally enjoyed.
Breakfast was simple but filling, quiche, coffeecake, fresh fruit, yogurt, coffee, juice, etc... shared with other relaxed guests.
The Point had a full bathroom that was at the end of the hall and a 1/2 bath inside the room for midnight relief.
Jackie has a little gift shop in the front office which made our cat-sitter thank you gift easy to find.
Spa staff was skilled and sweet, topping the whole weekend off with a nice foot rub!
We were happy to have this little get-a-way, it was a slow, easy, relaxing pace - just what we needed.
I contemplated bargaining with Jackie to hire me on as a toilet scrubber just so we could stay...
We will go back, hopefully soon!
Love love loved it.
Choose a room with a balcony, for sure.
