I stayed at the Open Hearth Inn last night, and it was a bit like stepping back in time--they have old fashioned cottages much like the ones I remember as a very little boy in the Wisconsin Northwoods. The outside of them show some wear and peeling paint, but inside they are as good as new, knotty pine construction and all. Everything inside the cottage was very clean, and everything worked well. Check-in was very pleasant and starts relatively early (at 2 pm). The flipside of that is that checkout is at 10 am--earlier than I have seen in a long time. They apparently once offered a continental breakfast, but signs in the lobby and in the rooms note that they don't anymore. Food is not hard to find nearby; there are two lobster pound/restaurants within a short walking distance and there is a supermarket about a mile up Rte. 3. My cottage (#8) had both a microwave and a small fridge; the fridge came in handy. As a postcard writer, I was very pleased that they are old-school in having postcards of the property for free (some friends will be getting some soon!), like all lodging used to do. The wi-fi and small TV both worked just fine. There can be some noise from Rt. 3, though what was loudest were some airplanes landing at the nearby airport--one came in very late at night. Best of all, Open Hearth is reasonably priced in an area where a decent deal in the summer is hard to find. I was glad I chose this old-fashioned place and would gladly do the Time Warp again.
