The Higgins Beach Inn stands prominently on the right at the bottom of the hill the pride of Ocean Avenue. You are a mere block away from the breathtaking sights and sounds of white capped waves and the incredibly picturesque shore that extends from beautiful Higgins Beach. This three story colonial revival structure includes a common first floor with dining and two floors above housing 21 sleeping rooms. The current innkeepers of almost 14 years have spent their busy tenure as owners striving to preserve the uncomplicated charm and history that warmly fogs this building. Their careful balance of historical respect for its 1897 origin and the concerns of the present is remarkable. While each room and area is individually and tastefully adorned much of the Inns coordination relies on the age of computers. The lobby is a charming welcoming gateway to a large handsome stairway heading upstairs the two adjacent dining rooms and another area. This area features a cozy comfortable sitting room with television a quaint and quiet sun porch and a sunny cocktail lounge that doubles as an ideal place for reading or leisurely conversation during its off hours. The guest rooms are divided among those with private bathrooms shared baths and with either queen or full sized or two twin beds.The 8 rooms without bathrooms include a sink area and share 4 bathrooms along the corridors. Several of the rooms have connecting capability that allows for greater flexibility for family accommodations. The Inns enviable location along Ocean Ave from Rte. 77 is nestled between glamorous Prouts Neck and the family friendly Crescent Beach State Park. Other beaches are very proximate and among other activities available many people enjoy the scenic coastal ride towards Fort Williams another pretty park with a small beach and acres of nostalgia to walk and ponder.
