In the most charming seaside town full of beautiful Victorian era properties, stands the breathtaking Mainstay Inn. Located on a beautiful tree-lined gas lamp illuminated street, this building is impeccably maintained.
The staff are pleasant and most helpful in dealing with requests or with regard to chatting about the property's history as well as the surrounding area.The morning breakfast selection is quite good and the meal is hearty. Special dietary requests can be accommodated with a short advance notice (my wife has a gluten intolerance). The rooms are beautifully appointed and the grounds are well landscaped. A short three block walk east takes you to the beach and ocean, along with some restaurants and shops on the promenade overlooking the sea. A four block walk south brings you into downtown where you'll find numerous fine dining establishments in addition to galleries, clothing boutiques, confectionaries (serving up the most delicious fudge, salt water taffy, chocolates) and souvenir shops.
The only noise that could disturb a pleasant nap on the lovely wraparound veranda/porch, after enjoying your afternoon tea and sweets, would be the clopping of a horse drawn carriage passing by.
