This place is a little bit off the Cabot Trail but a wonderful way to either begin or end your journey. The rooms are modern and feature designer touches. The views from the balcony are unparalleled and are perfect for watching the sunrise or sunset....More

How are the upstairs room accessed? Is it necessary to climb stairs?
January 13, 2018
  • Response from 973deborahReviewed this property
    There is a short set of interior steps from the front entrance to the rear door (the property sits on a hill) but you will access the upper rooms from the back parking lot so there is only one step up into the rooms.
