Martin House Inn is where we are staying for 3 nights. We were greeted by soft piano music (recorded) upon our arrival, together with Tiki (a Maltese) and Skye, the innkeeper, offering freshly-baked cookies. Common rooms are spacious and our room modestly decorated. Love the attic area and the Widow's Walk, where we are able to see a bird's eye view of the town and the sea beyond.
At night the fireplaces are set in the common areas, bringing a welcoming glow and warmth in the house. Wine and pastries are set out in the afternoon for tea time, while muffins, oatmeals, loaf bread, fruits, jams, juice, coffee and tea are laid out in dining area from 8:30 to 9:30. It just so happen that this Friday morning we got carried away with sharing stories about each other's dogs that we stayed on the table until 10 am. Such a lovely morning before we set out on an island tour with Gail.
The second night there were more people coming in the Inn. We had short chit-chats with some but Ron and I clicked quite well with this mother-and-daughter tag team. They were there with us this morning over breakfast chitchatting over our pets which even made Skye emotional remembering her Westie who recently died. Then we had this awesome conversation about our travels when they got back from their dinner at Dune's and Ron and I are having our tea and coffee at the dining area.
Ron and I decided to try the Nantucket Merlot and Chardonnay before we retired for the night. I must say, they are pretty good.
