I had the chance to visit the Newcastle Inn yesterday and just loved it. I've never been to an inn that had so much common space. I think there's just about a living room for each guest! The sun porch has a great view of the water. The pub with its adjoining living room is really welcoming, and how nice to have a pub right on the premises. There is a parlor with a hand painted floor and not one but two dining rooms too. The deck has the best view of the cove, and is a great place for breakfast in the morning.
I had a chance to see a number of the guest rooms, which were beautifully decorated, in keeping with the historic inn, but still offering great modern amenities like gas fireplaces, TVs and AC. I think I liked the cottage suite the best - it's multi-level and so cozy, and pet-friendly too.
Julie, the new owner, is wonderful. She makes the very best chocolate chip crunch cookies I've ever tasted. She understands the need among we cookie monsters for BIG cookies. You must try one.
