Great family, fun spot. Walking distance to town, offers a variety of activities such as kayaking, shuffleboard and ping pong, has a pool on property and a wonderful lawn to just hang out on overlooking the water. Looking forward to going back!

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

We stayed for four nights. The complimentary breakfast was amazing-eggs, quiche, waffles, bacon etc. Hotel was a short walk to town but there was also a hotel shuttle that guests can use which was very timely. We took the shuttle to Gooches beach, and to/ from town. Our room and the grounds were clean. We had a water view which... More

Traveled with husband & 1 year old. Loved the location- we walked into town for dinner every night. The breakfast was incredible (book directly with inn to get it included)- so many options and everything was delicious, even the coffee was decent. We asked for a room with outside space if possible and were moved to a portside king (handicap... More

Grounds and upkeep seem on point, Pool bar menu and drinks were excellent.

We only stayed one night. Would definitely go back there. Our room was cozy and cottage like, very special. The location is lovely. Breakfast was very good and substantial with a lot of choices. Easy walk to the ocean and into the downtown area.

Not that you need me to tell you that, since it seems like there's a wedding held there every day. But. It was perfect. We were blessed by ideal weather, so the outdoor ceremony didn't have to be moved at the last minute. But the folks who were working all night to make the reception wonderful were SO sweet and...

Packed up the family and headed north for The Nonantum Resort. The building itself is older and the hallways remind me of an old tires ski resort...that said, everything else was terrific including the rooms. The Nonantum takes service very seriously and I would be hard pressed to find a single staff member that wasn't excellent. From bell staff to... More

Beautiful location for a full service facility with fantastic activities for families. Our son loved the crabbing class (the staff was kind and fun), the pool was clean and comfortable (although not huge), and there was plenty to keep kids occupied (ping pong, soccer, crafts, shuffle board, etc) while we relaxed in comfortable Adirondack chairs!

Dear Eileen: Relaxing in an Adirondack chair watching the boats slide by while kids are running around having fun. Life just doesn't get much better! My guess is that crabbing is the most popular thing Activities does! (closely followed by the singalongs and marshmallows at the campfires!) Please come back and see us again soon!
