We booked a room at the Bentley Hotel for seven of us celebrating a bachelorette weekend and were horrified at the state of the place upon arrival - we were completely mislead by their advertising. After calling everywhere to try and find an alternative, someone recommended we call David and check out the newly renovated Drake. As soon as we arrived, we felt at home. David was warm and welcoming and toured us around the lovely modern accommodations. The rooms had brand new kitchenettes, modern seating areas, and crisp white bedding (the website does not do it justice, more work has been done since then!) The grassy picnic areas and canal are beautiful. We told him about our pickle at the Bentley and he lent us his landline to call and try to get our money back. As soon as we convinced them to refund us, we reserved the rooms at the Drake.
The rest of the weekend was heaven. David sent a bottle of wine over for the bride-to-be and brought us warm zeppolis from the local bakery in the morning. His golden retriever, Osito, visited us when we hung out on the grounds. We had one of the toilets clog and someone was right over to fix it. In fact, upon our departure, David promised us he would be replacing much of the old plumbing system in all the rooms to ensure the problem would be solved permanently . Ponquogue Beach is a 5 minute drive and there's a great breakfast cafe at the end of the block. By the end of the weekend, we felt we'd found a home away from home. The Drake is the perfect place for a charming weekend away from it all; you will feel comfortable and well looked-after. Lovely accommodations, lovely grounds, and above all, impeccable customer service. Thanks, David! You saved our weekend from disaster!
