We just spent 2 nights at the Summer Cottage Inn and it was wonderful. We stayed in the Wicker Garden room which is to the back of the house and has it's own entrance, and small porch with wicker rockers. The room was a tad small but non the less comfortable and cozy. We understand the the room is going to be enlarged. Patrick and Jean the innkeepers were so personable and made you feel right at home and it was as if you'd known them forever. Patrick is a great storyteller and can tell you about every resturant and sight to see. The food at breakfast was beyond words, the first morning Jean prepared baked pancakes and the next Patrick made a mac n cheese casserole without the mac. Tea time was another treat, with various teas and cookies and cake. The Inn is located within walking distance of Washington St Mall, the beach and many restaurants. They also have bikes you can use and even chairs for the beach.
Our room had a refrigerator in the room, but in the mail house there is a small kitchen that all guests can use that has a microwave and fridge and is stocked with tea, hot chocolate and coffee.
The only downfall is NO parking which is not mentioned on their website. Being off season we only ended parking about a block away but my companion is handicapped and often in a wheelchair so during the height of summer parking would be a big problem. We would recommend the Inn and can't wait to go back.
