We just finished 3 nights at the Nonantum and had a wonderful time. We stayed in the Carriage house and our third floor room had a view of the river. The room was good size and the bed was comfortable. I did not find the lack of a "regular" elevator to be a problem. Staff was very friendly and helpful at the front desk and in the bar/dining rooms. The front porch is large and has a row of rocking chairs. It was very relaxing to have a glass of wine and sit in a rocker. Facing the river are adirondack chairs. Landscaping around the property is well maintained. The breakfast buffet was large and offered a bit of everything. If you stay for dinner or are looking for a break from seafood, the Chipotle Blueberry ribs were exceptional. You can easily walk downtown or to the beach. All in all, a very relaxing visit.
