Gazing out my rear french doors this morning, sipping my coffee, the only sounds being waves lapping, seagulls cawing and the cry of a hawk. A small rabbit which was nibbling on some freshly dewed greens skittered away into the safety of the sea brush. A small muskrat slinked quickly out of and then back into the same rustic, thorny, shorline.
I felt a thousand miles from home, abiet just an hour and a half from my starting destination.
We stayed in one of the Harbor Houses which was clean a richly appointed with comfortable linens and cozy surroundings.The semi-private deck is the very nice amply sized for two with comfortable furniture.
We enjoyed a tasty lunch on our arrival date. Service was excellant, the lobster roll and chowder as good as it gets, the chicken also cooked perfectly on the romaine salad.
We also enjoyed a soothing massage therapy session in their spa room at the inn.
Overall the Castle Hill Inn provided us with excellant service and we will return
If any suggestions I would make to give a 5 star rating. Here are some small but I think important features, at least to me, a contractor about 50.
In my room just about every wall fixture, ie. light switch, plug plate, telephone jack CROOKED, some laughably.Ok maybe most don't notice but like I said I am a contractor and I notice the fine points in a building. Also the bathroom sink water stop woud not stay down and the shower faucet control albeit fully funtional, clearly needed a little attention. Again almost over picky but then 5 star is 5 star!!
