We spent a night a the Tidewater and had an incredible harbor view from our room. The bed was comfortable but the bathroom is extremely small and diffiuclt to negotiate. The light fixture over the sink didn't work and there was some strange metal thing attached to the wall that looked like a cup holder and was full of something that looked like soap scum. It was really nasty looking. There were no gluten free or dairy free choices for the breakfast which is stated as a deluxe continental breakfast. There were 2 cold cereal choices, instant oatmeal, 1 banana and one orange at the breakfast bar. No one was there to refill anything and we were there at 6:30 am. We read that breakfast is from 6-10. Maybe we arrived too early. While we found the staff very friendly, it was obvious that they need more help. The building is in need of repair and is not very clean. It was nice to have use of the bikes and a plus that they shuttle you to and from the ferry.…
My wife and I spent a few nights here and enjoyed every second! We went bike riding to the quarries for swimming, went kayaking in the basin and Carvers Harbor, we also walked and walked and walked. We wished we stayed longer. The island is truly beautiful. The staff is awesome. We found the facility clean and very comfortable.
We had a great stay. The view from our room/balcony was incredible. The room had everything we needed. The breakfast was nice. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Bed was comfy as well. They have bikes you can use and kayaks you can rent.
Two very nice folks are lovingly and energetically restoring this great motel. It is really more of a B&B made out of a one-time stonecutting mill. Now the tidal mill dam provides ambience for a thoughtful, affordable inn with small rooms but great amenities. The harbor is literally under the rooms, so the view of Bruno the Seal at breakfast was front row.
Really enjoyed our memorable stay here, living over rushing tidewater. Loved being able to take a short walk to/from the ferry and local restaurants. Great base to go biking around the island. Owner is very knowledgeable about the island and gave us great tips.
