The walkway from the main inn parking to the street level door is really steep. The top step is crumbling and a major safety issue.

Property is centrally located in Boothbay Harbor. The negatives are: Bad WiFi and the through the wall A/C was noisy the first night. I complained and they immediately repaired it. All else was great. The staff is very accommodating to your needs

The room view was amazing. The front door was one side of the bay the slider was the other side of the bay. Absolutely beautiful. Parking was great. Didn’t have to move my car for 2 days- everything we wanted to do was in walking distance.
