Eat any meal here. You will not be disppointed. We stayed in the rooms here, but the food is what I loved. The main building is lovely and right in the heart of town. An easy walk to everywhere.

This is an elegant place for a summer dinner when you don't want to be surrounded by lobster bibs, noisy children, and cell phones tourists. A most excellent happy hour where drinks on the special menu are $5 (usually 10), makes it worth while to...More

The location as well as the amenities they offer make it a great place to stay. We had a small room. It it worked well and was designed for a few day stay.

We stayed 2 nights at the Inn. We enjoyed the room and looked forward to the great breakfasts. Mary Jo was very helpful with our travels and very organized. We loved the location and would definitely stay there again.

As others have said, it is difficult to get attention when arriving, and we had to go back into the restaurant to find someone to seat us. However, we were comfortable at our table, and it certainly wasn't too noisy for us to converse well....More

Thank you for your feedback! Our front entrance is a challenge for us… Our dinner service typically accommodates 25-30 diners which doesn't produce enough activity at the door to warrant a "hostess" and with the layout of the 1835 building if arriving guests are standing...More
