Honeymooned here and returned for our 25th anniversary. Great location. Quiet with beautiful open view. Owner and staff very friendly and accommodating. Great champagne breakfast. Only negative is that our room was somewhat dated. We stayed in the Ball room.

The bountiful breakfast sered at the 1661 Inn was a special occasion any time or day. The staff, both year round and the "kids"summer help were friendly and helpful. Made you feel like it was your own home....

Always pleasant, the Inn is cosey in the Fall. The food is quite fine, but the lobster mashed potatoes are spectacular.

Memorial Day through Columbus Day the 1661 Inn serves its renowned full champagne buffet breakfast each morning. The breakfast buffet features an omelet station, homemade corned beef hash, eggs, pancakes or french toast and a whole lot more! During the quieter seasons, a smaller version of our buffet is available as well. For the 2016 summer season, we will be introducing a small appetizer menu, desserts and flaming coffees at the new 1661 bar starting at 5:00pm.
