Arrived for a mid week stay at the height of the busy season. Were given a fantastic oceanfront room with a stellar view (rm 315). Ocean views from both windows. The corner room was clean and tastefully decorated. The wallpaper was victorianesque and fit the period of the hotel. This is an old-style hotel, with furnishings and flavors to match. Modern-lovers beware...this Inn is a classic. Although there was no jaquzzi by the pool, the inn room jaquzzi tub made up for it. Don't miss the Atlantic Trail just outside the inn that goes right along the rocky shoreline and continues up to the popular Halubit Point State Park.
In the dining room, we were treated to tuxedoed staff who were nice and attentive. The restaurant was well-staffed. I asked our server to have the Chef prepare whatever he wished for me. Chef Flannigan prepared pan seared scallops with a citris demi-glaze. Fantastic! The risotto, which can often be poorly prepared, melted in my mouth. The only issue I had was I was unable to have a glass of a favorite wine- I didnt want the whole bottle. The dessert, molten lava cake was deserving of the name. For the quality of the food, and the quality of the service, the bill was reasonable and fair. For breakfast, which is included, be prepared to eat! Eggs, ham, french toast, potatoes,egg sandwiches, and a full slate of breakfast breads and pastry. This buffet is easily $20 in any metropolitan hotel. This Victorian Inn is a true gem and we are planning to go back.
