8/10 Very Good

Location great, accommodations ok.
Convenient to town & shopping. Quiet, nice view. Stair to second floor had very narrow treads and was difficult to get luggage up and down safely. Room was a nice size and had an ocean view, but it needed a little cleaning and touch up painting.

A nice overnight stay.
We had a very nice day at the Anchor House. It is within walking distance to the main part of town. Also the breakfast is very good at the 1661 house which is a slight walk up the street. Highly recommend
