It was close to where I needed to be, there was ample parking, and the room was spacious for a historic home. The back yard and porch were beautiful. For starters, I have never stayed anywhere before that I couldn't lock my door! That meant that I took my computer every time I left the room. The overall look of the place was rundown and shabby. The sheets had holes in them, the vinyl window shades were ripped, and every time you pulled them down, you knocked the cafe curtains down, because they were just propped up. One of the window sashes was difficult to open and close, and I was encouraged to leave my windows up, and only run the a/c unit when I absolutely needed it. It all seemed very makeshift. The room was full of kitch! I also wasn't impressed with the quality of breakfast. I love historic inns, and have stayed in several, but was very disappointed with this one. And to top it off, I have stayed in better hotels in NYC for what I paid for this place!
The staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating. The Inn itself is gorgeous with plenty of space to sit and relax, a fireplace, coffee, cookies and hot cider in the afternoons and a very nice continental breakfast in the mornings with coffee, fresh fruit and fresh baked goods. Wine glasses and openers are available as are a small fridge, hot chocolate packets and assorted teas. They have board games and a library. We were upgraded to the Sunrise room - a lovely surprise! Since it was off season we didn't take advantage of the many outdoor spaces to sit and relax but I'm sure it's lovely on a warm summer night! No shades/blinds on the windows. Shower curtain on the shower rather than a door.
The inn is very cozy, with a relaxed atmosphere. It is tastefully decorated with Cape Cod nautical theme, using authentic antiques, but is understated, not overdone. The breakfast is ample, with fresh pastries. In the afternoon, they have fresh home baked cookies and coffee, and provide the makings for some-mores if you want to make a fire in the outdoor fire pit. Each room is different, in keeping with the Inn's history. The building itself has been restored, with careful attention to all architectural details, inside and out, which added to its charm. The staff were all extremely friendly, polite and helpful. We will definitely be back. Because the building is old, the A/C had to run constantly to keep the system balanced, but the temperature was comfortable. There was just a constant background noise from the duct work.
