We have wanted to stay here for many years and decided to stay when we saw their very affordable packages for off season. This Inn is one of the originals and while it has been updated and many rooms added to the grounds, the inside of the main inn dining room still hold the beauty of a bygone era. The desk staff that greeted us was genuinely welcoming. The gift shop manager was welcoming as well. Our room was very clean and while a little outdated in the color and furniture department, was comfortable and clean. Bed was comfortable and had plenty of warm blankets and duvet that allowed us to leave our deck door open at night to listen to the sounds of the ocean and not be cold. We ordered room service for our breakfast and it was delivered hot and delicious. Dinner in the dining room was beautiful, delicious and very enjoyable. While there is no "dress code", a nice night of dressing up makes the evening that much more special. The package deal we had included the room (we stayed in the Ocean Front Lodge - directly on the ocean with a private deck, dinner for each of us, breakfast in the dining room (we had room service at no extra charge). Dinner and breakfast included ANY choice on the menu, not a select few items. We did a one night package and added an extra night separately so we could eat at another intown restaurant we enjoy. The continental breakfast is wonderful - fresh fruit, cold hard boiled eggs, assorted fresly made muffins and quickbreads, bagels, assorted breads for toast, cereals, juices, coffee,etc. You will not be hungry. Overall a very enjoyable stay and a great bargain in the off season. Within walking distance to shops, restaurant, and sits directly on the Shore Path trail. It is kid friendly, though there were not many when we went, but we would not hesitate to bring our children with us to enjoy this as well. Well behaved of course!
