Want a big bang for your buck? Look no further than the Liberty Hill Inn. The former 1825 whaling tycoon’s home sits on a knoll just off Route 6A in Yarmouth Port and features five comfortable rooms in the elegant main house and four in the adjacent post-and-beam-style carriage house.
The rooms in the main inn have lofty ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and restored bathrooms. Next door, rooms might have a whirlpool, fireplace, or canopy bed. Each is spotless, light, bright, and airy, with crisp white linens, spreads, and towels.
Guests rave (for good reason) about morning muffins, fruits, scones, quiches, waffles and free-flowing hot coffee served in the café-style breakfast room.
On my last visit, all the guests were delightfully plied with cranberry scones, broiled grapefruit and spinach strata. Oh and unlimited espresso from the Miele machine!
Super friendly and accommodating innkeepers, John Hunt and Kris Srihadi, know the area well and are a font of recommendations. Don’t miss the nearby Edward Gorey House or the Bass Hole Boardwalk down the road. Better yet, also ask John for some ideas that (mostly) only locals know about!
Oh: Got a hankering to settle in for a week and need some more space? Ask about their completely renovated 4-bedroom, off-site cottage.
Oh, and one more thing: I dare you to only eat one afternoon cookie…
