The tidewater motel was fantastic. My wife and I went away for our anniversary here and it was incredibly relaxing. The room was very clean. We were greeted with a happy anniversary card that was signed by the entire staff, a bottle of wine and fresh flowers. The owner was very nice and actually drove us himself to a beautiful kayak spot. The view from the room was amazing! The sound of the rushing tide helps you have one of the best night sleep of your life. For the view and rushing tide alone the stay is worth the price. The bathrooms are small and so are the rooms but the reason for staying here is the decks. Off all the rooms are decks out to the harbor and they are beautiful. While you could relax, you could also be very active. This is a great place for those who like a nice walks, bike rides, kayaking, hiking, sunsets, and very friendly people. Our stay at the Tidewater was fantastic but the island is what will make us come back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Tidewater Motel is built on a bridge separating Carver's Harbor to the south from Carver's Pond, its tidal estuary, to the north. The same rush of ocean water coming and going right under your harborside room once powered a blacksmith shop and grist mill on the site. Few views can equal those at the Tidewater and few places are as relaxing; the ebb and flow is nature's own sedative. Still, the world's most productive lobster fleet, anchored right outside your window, gets an early start, so you may not want to sleep in. Open year-round, the Tidewater is the island's only motel. If you want to be closer to the water, you'll have to get wet. ... more less
