We have stayed at the "Chip" the past three summers and have been thrilled with our accommodations. We stayed on the 4th floor in a two bedroom suite that was amazing. The beds are comfortable, living room is very spacious and the hotel had a perfect pack-n-play for my two year old! The nautical decor makes you feel like its your island home away from home. The view of the water and boats on your private balcony makes you never want to leave your room. I highly recommend this hotel for families or for a non-children getaway. The Pink Pony is a "must visit" bar and in my opinion it has the best Blood Mary on the island. We also had dinner in the main dining room of the hotel and loved it - recommend dinner or breakfast during your stay. But the best hidden secrete of the Chippewa Hotel is the "back bar" of the pony.....the outside bar overlooking the water, boats and hotel hot tub, a perfect place the have an island cocktail! My entire family has stayed at this hotel and we can't say enough nice things about the staff, accommodations and location on Main Street! We'll be back again this summer.
