The inn came to be after four charismatic Bostonian ladies paid $400 for the 1816 farm in 1902. ‘The Cottage Girls’ became island legends through their independence and eccentricity and not since their purchase has the property changed hands for money.....

.... The equally feisty Laura inherited it from her mother, who had herself co-inherited it. As you bump down the narrow lane to the cluster of old buildings overlooking the sea, you are instantly struck by a sense of those bygone days when the ‘girls’ shocked islanders with their new motorcar and the ferry only went once a week. The sitting room is ‘untouched since 1816’ with a painted wooden floor, hand-hewn beamed ceiling and open fireplace; the bay window is made from parts of an old shipwreck; old books and antique Shaker furniture complete the effect. The bedrooms have that unmistakable seaside feel and are fresh and invigorating with bright wooden floors, crisp linens and sea breezes. Even the claw-foot tubs are a jaunty yellow. This is a place to come and re-charge the batteries and revel in nature, to enjoy the prolific birdlife and amble down beautiful trails. And also to feast on Laura’s wonderful cooking which is an attraction in itself. Great hiking trails, beaches, birding and whale-watching. Call 506-662-3724 for ferry schedules from the mainland.
