The rooms are quaint and comfortable (Beds were a tad stiff) and the setup overall is very homey. The staff are so friendly and the pub/hotel bar is great. They serve free breakfast buffet in the morning and offer free shuttle rides into town until midnight. This allows you to enjoy a beautiful evening out and not have to worry... More

We just finished a weekend stay at the Nonantum Resort. The room was spacious, food excellent, and the staff very pleasant and helpful. The grounds were particularly beautiful; I can imagine this resort would be a great place to stay in warmer weather!

My husband and I spent the weekend here for a friend's wedding. The resort is quaint but not too small. There is adequate space to relax.

Stayed here with my girlfriend over the weekend for a wedding that was to take place on the grounds. The Hotel itself is very beautiful and nicely situated on the water.
