I took my wife here for a birthday weekend trip. We were there in the off-season, but aside from the cool weather, we were still able to enjoy this pretty New England town and all it has to offer. The inn is centrally-located in a town that is very walkable. There are a number of great shops and restaurants all within a quick walk.
As for the inn itself, the decor is fresh and comfortable, the staff was very friendly, the facilities clean, and parking was ample. We had access to a carport in case it snowed, but we opted to leave our car around back, which worked out fine. We also loved the Keurig machine setup in the lobby. They carried a broad selection of teas and coffees, which we made effective use of. I would recommend the Keurig over the coffeepot in the room.
Our room was a One-Room Suite with a gas fireplace and jacuzzi in the room located in the building next door to the main building. It was nice to be able to lounge in the jacuzzi and still watch tv. The gas fireplace was very convenient. I see the benefits of using an authentic wood fireplace, which they offer in their other suite, but this fireplace went on with a quick flick of the switch. The bed was extraordinarily comfortable and cozy.
The last thing I would add was kind of a personal preference. The suite had a great second-floor view overlooking the historic buildings on Center Street. The history and architecture of Newburyport is what really appeals to me, so I thought that was a nice perk.
