Addy Sea is always a great get away but they have made some important changes to allow guests to feel safe during COVID. We have some health issues so we have been very careful to protect ourselves from infection. We spent 2 nights in early October & thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room had a new memory foam bed that was very comfortable & the ventilation system had UV lights to sanitize the air. The breakfasts are still delicious but are now plated rather than buffet & can be eaten in the dining room, porch or your room. The other guests were respectful of the mask rules & staff were attentive to details. The weather was wonderful while we were there so we we able to spend time on the beach, walking in the surf & we caught some lovely sunrises & sunsets. We found nice hiking trails close by at Fresh Pond & James Farm Preserve. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay at Addy Sea Rooms are spacious with nice views of the beach and ocean. Breakfasts were more than ample (maybe a bit too ample). Nice selection of food Tea time snacks were yummy. Nice to be able to eat outside. And perfect to be able to walk right onto the beach

Great location and breakfast! Room is funky and overly expensive. Love the grounds and porch. Biggest problem was climbing the shifting sand dunes to get to the beach which threw my back out. Other access points had mats that solved the problem elsewhere.

Thank you so much for your review. You are right, Room 6 is rather "unique". That happens when trying to fit a bathroom into a 100+ year old house. Room 6 is slated for renovations to make it less "unique" in the future. The dune can be a bit challenging sometimes, but since it is not part of our property, theres not a lot we can do about it. Mother nature seems to be building it a little higher each year. There is a beach access point with a matte right next to the house for easier access. We're glad you chose to stay with us and we're grateful for the feedback. We hope to see you again.

Beachfront with historical ambiance. Outstanding breakfast included along with an afternoon sweet treat. Clean, well kept. Not all rooms may have a view of the ocean, but those that do it’s worth it. Looking forward to staying again sometime.
