We stayed at the Dan’l Webster Inn the Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving. The property is very nice, lovely landscaping, an attractive front entrance, ample parking to the side and rear. The site was a tavern/inn for many, many years and was rebuilt in the 1970’s after a fire destroyed the historic original structure. As such, it is a modern shell with period touches to reflect the original and the setting in Sandwich. The business is owned by a Southern Massachusetts hospitality group that also operates 2 other hotels and several restaurants.
Reservations were made via the Inn’s website at $159 per night/$175.92 with taxes, fees. You are charged for the first night at the time of reservation. Should need to cancel, you must do so 4 days prior to your arrival.
We booked a double bedded room and were given #31, on the second floor of the main building. Stairs only, no elevator. We enjoyed the benefit of a corner room with windows on 2 sides and a view from the front of the building. Both windows were equipped with screens and were openable. Come November the level of evening activity must be much less than summer, but it was absolutely dead quiet each night.
The room was comfortably furnished with quality pieces. The bed very comfortable. The bath more than adequate. Everything was very clean. A TV is hidden in the armoire with movie and other choices if desired. A Keurig coffee maker with the needed supplies is provided.
We ate each night in the Tavern (our intent was another place the second night, but they were closed) – there are 2 restaurants, and upscale one and the Tavern. Wood paneling, open fireplace, quasi-period pub-like decorations. The dining room had booths and open tables, adjacent to a bar area with a few more tables. A wide variety of menu options – salads, burgers, pizzas, to full meals and daily specials.
Every member of staff we encountered – front desk, housekeeping, restaurant, gift shop was friendly and made you feel welcome. The Dan’l Webster Inn projects the feel of a very traditional New England establishment, quiet, solidly traditional and comfortable in a grandmotherly sort of way.
