Pros:
Cons: The Inn was understaffed at Breakfast and at dinner making waits long and service sloppy at an otherwise first rate dinner. For the price I expect more.

Pros: Under new ownership the Emerson has made some vast improvements while still maintaining it's majestic charm and views of the sea that Ralph Waldo Emerson saw when he visited 100 years ago ( see photos.) The room was exceptionally clean and comfy. We enjoyed an outstanding full buffet breakfast created by chef Gail. The front desk staff, which included Carol and Julie where nothing but inviting smiles. As well as the evening staff lead by Meagan. Live jazz music met our ears on the front porch when we arrived on Wednesday evening. We where even lucky enough to meet one the owners of the property a "steward as such" Phil. From my perception every other guest had the same outstanding view as myself. Nice job...that's 5 Stars in my book!
