      Beautiful ocean view walk up

      Beautiful ocean view, comfortable bed and clean room and bath. The room listed was a third floor walk up, no assistance with luggage. Limited staffing at this time and maid service for towels upon request. Bathroom clean, good water pressure but very small. The inn borders a quiet residential neighborhood for walking with footpaths leading to the ocean. Dining in the area limited at this time.

      Lovely updated Inn from the 1800s with fabulous breakfast and wonderful dinner options. Owner and staff are very accommodating and provide the perfect ambience for a family, group or a romantic getaway

    • 4.0.Fair

      Amenities and service seemed very stingy considering the very high price. No drinking glasses. No maid service. Except for the comfortable bed, it was a motel experience at luxury hotel rates.

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      It was a wonderful get away for my husband and I. The staff and guests were extremely warm, helpful and made us feel at home. The vista was dreamy--definately get an ocean view if you possible. If you open the windows at night, you can hear the ocean waves crash upon the rocks (ocean side, not street side). We stayed an extra night on streetside and the rooms were still just as wonderful, albiet missing the great views. We didnt mind too much because all we had to do was go downstairs and drink coffee or wine on the veranda.😊 My husband and I stayed for dinner one evening, and the clam chowder was still the best I had on our Boston/Coastal MA Vacay. (Dinner 1st course soup was different than the small bites chowder...which was still pretty good). We would be delighted to stay here again if we are ever in the area. Thank you for making it a wonderful & memorable stay!

      Stunning ocean views, gorgeous overall property. Great staff! Breakfast had scrumptious raspberry pancakes as a highlight! Bed was comfy and the only suggestion would be a small fridge to keep drinks/snacks.
