One of the striking things about Pilgrim's, of relatively modest size, is that there are three public rooms (lounges): one for reading, one for TV and board games, and one on the eating level where you can linger before and after meals. It makes for relaxation and a sense of community even as guests and locals (in the evening) stream in and out, and for a cozy refuge in bad weather. The Inn is situated on a gorgeous salt-water "pond", more like a lake in size, where water fowl take off and land, and the wind and sun play on the surface. Helpful staff and better than decent food.
