My family spent a week at the Tuck Inn. Liz and Scott were friendly, accommodating and dedicated to making sure their guests have a good time. They were especially helpful in recommending local eateries, shopping, beaches and historical sites as well as how to use the nearby public transit system, which came in handy for our trips to Boston.
The inn is very well located, a five minute walk to Bearskin Neck with its many quaint shops and restaurants. You can easily spend a day there. Our two-room suite (Room 9 - The Eagle's Nest) was spotless and maid service was above average. Directly adjacent to the room was a large, beautifully furnished private outdoor deck. The bathroom was very small (as advertised) and had no window, exhaust fan or lock. If you are a large person, be aware that the shower is about 2 ft X 2 ft. There are supermarkets nearby but our room did not have a fridge (although you can use the inn's). The two room air conditioners worked very well.
Regarding breakfast: There are varieties of fresh baked breads, muffins and cakes, rhubarb, fresh fruit, granola, yogurt, boxed cereals, coffee, tea and juices. They do not offer anything in the way of eggs, pancakes, French toast, waffles, breakfast meats, bagels, etc. Their literature said this was due to licensing restrictions.
If you intend to go to Boston from here, it's a twelve minute walk to the train station and an hour and ten minute train ride to North Station. You can drive from the inn to Salem in about thirty minutes. Both places offer plenty to do. If you like the beach, Good Harbor in Gloucester (a short drive) is spectacular.
