We reviewed our options here on TripAdvisor. Those remarks were more than right. The room was very clean, the bed comfortable and the staff friendly. The morning scones, fruit & coffee were more than enough to get our day started. Just as the name says, this is a historic old farm home converted into guest housing. So the rooms are not huge. The bathroom and shower stall are snug.
Our family of 4 stayed in a cabin, which has characters, lots of discovery and entertainment within, meticulously kept. Convenient location to a local grocery store and an icecream shop. We were comfortable and had a wonderful relaxing stay. Steve, the host, was knowledgeable of local places to shop, eat, and hike. The scones were out of this world. A must-have. Another bonus about stopping at the lobby for some scones before heading out is meeting the guests. Each morning we were there, we had enjoyable chats with people we've never met. Perhaps the place attracts that kind of guests. Everywhere we looked, there was a story to tell and waiting to be told. The place is full of characters and history. This beats the five-star Hyatt hotels and the like, definitely.
Glenacres Inn was meticulously clean, charming, and cozy. We stayed in a room upstairs.The king size bed was very comfortable. Steve the Innkeeper did not miss his calling. He was very pleasant and engaging. He even sent complementary dessert to us at our restaurant when he learned we were celebrating a birthday. I would definitely recommend Glenacres to anyone who appreciates a lovingly cared for historic house.
If you looking for a more down-to-earth experience with a homey feel with individual character, this is a great spot with most of the amenities such as wifi. The bed was very comfortable and nice. All is well kept. The morning scones and coffee are great and we enjoyed talking to the owner about the local economy and development. If you want more of the typical hotel/motel bathroom, the showers in some of the rooms may seem small. Each room appears to be slightly different. We were there for part business with an extended pleasure days.
We arrived and our host Steve was there to meet us. The inn itself is old but that is the draw to it. It was very cool to enter the house from being out and about and hear era music playing as you enter. It was truly like a trip back in time with all the comforts of home. I have stayed in hundreds of hotels with work and I know a comfortable bed when I feel it and this one was certainly one of the more comfortable beds I have slept in. The grounds are spacious and nice for strolling around. We took advantage of the great morning coffee and fresh fresh fresh scones for the mornings. They have a nice horseshoe pit on site and our host even offered to loan us his kayak if we wanted. I am not that kayaking guy but the offer was very generous and take a couple minutes to chat with Steve. Filled with great recommendations for local restaurants and things to see and do. Nice guy!! Inn centrally located in Westport with easy quick access to all Westport has to offer. Was an amazing few days and I feel lodging had a lot to do with establishing a feel of getting away and doing something different. We would definitely return and would not hesitate to recommend this place. Well done!!…
This place was really quite nice. The owner Steve was a wonderful host. The place is very old as the "historic" name would imply but it is well kept, clean and functional. They are quick to upgrade if they have room. They are pet friendly but only on the lower level rooms. Really nice upper level rooms are not accessable if you have pets which was a little dissapointing. This is a huge property however, so you have plenty of room for your canine friends to frolic out doors.
We had a great night in the Glenacres Historic Inn. We've arrived late and had to leave relatively early the next day, but the owners accommodated all our needs in a very friendly and helpful manner. The hotel itself is full of character. All rooms are individually decorated, and the general feel is a bit like a historic English manor -- with all the amenities of modern times, of course. Overall, we have had a great stay and deeply regret that we only stayed one night.
We spent only one night, but it was a delightful Inn in a nice quiet setting. The beds were comfortable. The host was very helpful about places to eat and things to see and do. There is a back deck that if it hadn't been misty would have been a great place to sit and relax.
We had a great stay here. This is not your ordinary hotel; our key had a painted rock attached, the reception area looked almost museum-like, the staff was very friendly, our bed had a homemade quilt, we had a spacious deck in back of our room. They offered homemade scones, and fruit for breakfast, with coffee and tea available. We had a nice breeze through our open window, we could hear the fog horn on the water, and it was a short drive to the waterfront. There were some hiking trails in the back, but the mosquitoes made short work of that adventure! A great, almost B&B experience.
The lodging in the Westport area seems to be catered more to the visiting fishermen. Ones we looked at were clean and adequate. Opted for Glenacres, which is a cross of a hotel and a B&B, without the the breakfast. Clean, more than adequate and nicely furnished. We stayed in the cabin (#15) and have very few complaints. TV selection sucked, they subscribed to Direct TV but offered no premiums. Most channels consisted o shopping networks, lots of spanish stations, and some local outlets. They have NFL channel but not espn, not much in children's selections. For very few dollars this could be upgraded and become a much nicer stay. I realize people don't travel and vacation to watch TV, but at the end of the day it is nice to have a choice. Pillows were exceptional but the bed I chose needs an upgrade to the mattress, as the middle is starting to sag. Overall, excellent accomodations.…
