The Anchor Inn Boutique Hotel

The Anchor Boutique Hotel is a quirky, one-of-a-kind, couples hotel with lighthearted, mildly rebellious room details and a designer décor. With only 9 guest rooms we are small and intimate in size but we express our singularity with our quirky touches and winsome features. We are independent, eccentric with a sense of humor, and all for the surprise and delight of our guests. The 'Anchor' is a luxury hotel. Intentionally not stuffy, we stand out from the crowd because we challenge the common 'party island' beliefs. Our guests get to enjoy a quiet, classy and over-the-top place to stay that's close to everything. We pride ourselves on providing a quiet, secure, residential location without the party - the kind of place where you go to enjoy a nap, a good book, the company of friends, drinks on the patio and the beauty of an island sunset. Our casually elegant rooms are the sweet spot of the hotel.

My first trip to the island was for the opening of the Reel Bar on Friday, April 6. I tried the drunken mussels that were steamed and served with a beer and garlic sauce. Yummy!

It’s cold again today.  Every once in awhile I swear I see a bit of white stuff floating around.  Last week we had rain.  Torrential rain, as if we were in a rain forest. I look around the back of the construction zone of the Anchor Inn Boutique Hotel.  There is siding, windows, and a port-a-john behind the cottage.  Workmen are EVERYWHERE.  And mud. ...
