Nice big room with sitting area, comfortable bed and pillows. Good size bath. Breakfast was a little lacking but probably due to COVID. Didn’t care for the egg sandwich. Great location walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants, Ungunquit playhouse, Perkins Cove, marginal way. A pretty far walk to the beach.

- Scott Eberle

We enjoyed an ideal holiday season weekend getaway at the Hartwell House Inn. The room was elegant and oh so comfortable; and the breakfasts delighted us. It's just minutes by foot to the shops, restaurants, walking trails, and the beach. The innkeepers and staff clearly take great pride in their hospitality and attention to detail.
