Had a great stay here in the Nature cabin - we barbecued on our verandah, enjoyed the hot tub and the firepit, and saw deer just outside the cabin. The accommodation is really well done with lots of thought and attention to detail. Just be aware that there is some highway noise.

Thank you so much! It sounds like you did it up right, and took advantage of all The Andiron has to offer. Hope the rest of your trip went equally well. Come back soon!

Andiron is one of those places that tries and almost gets it right. In an attempt to be cute they try to put posters on the wall and recycled material in the room, but sticking posters on the wall without care makes the room look cheap and sloppy. With a little more care and effort this could have been a...

Hi Jerry! We are sorry you didn't have a good time at our place. We're also a little surprised! Since you added an additional night to your stay, we sort of assumed you were perfectly satisfied. We so wish you'd mentioned your unhappiness - we would gladly have moved you to another room more to your liking or recommended a...

This place is like stepping back in time. It has an excellent location. The grounds are rustic as are the "cabins". We stayed in the "Here" and "There" cabin. The floor in the "here" cabin feels as though there is no support, the "There" bathroom has absolutely no place to sit your toiletries, and there is so much "stuff" sitting...

Hi! We think "unique experience" is a good thing! But maybe you don't? That's okay. The Andiron is not your regular motel-on-a-road-trip kind of thing, and that's just how we like it. It isn't for everyone! Rest assured, that squeaky floor board isn't hiding anything but a squeaky floor board - typical 55-year old cabin stuff. And speaking of "stuff,"...

We stayed at The Andiron for two nights as quite a big group, which was fabulous. But it would have been just as awesome as a couples-destination (many honeymooners here, people!). The cabins are unique, well equipped and fantastic in design as well as function. The reception area needs to be experienced as the unique little slice of heaven it...

Still thinking of our wonderful time at the Andiron.. Every contact we had from the booking process to checkout was handled with care and attention.

You guys were great guests, and that sweet Foxxy pooch of yours stole our hearts. Thanks for staying and for your kind review. We hope you'll visit again soon. Oh! And you're totally right! Calling Kate is the very best way to choose a room - she won't steer you wrong.

In the interest of full disclosure, Mrs. Andiron is my cousin. Nevertheless, our overnight stay was everything we hoped for and more. We stayed in the two-room suite (Milly and Bill) dedicated to my aunt and uncle, Mrs. Andiron's parents, and decorated with memorabilia from their World War II-era courtship and marriage. For me, that sealed the deal right there,...

Why thank you, cousin! We knew you'd love the suite, and not just because it was about your Aunt Millie and Uncle Bill. It's pretty riveting. Come back soon. Seriously.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Andiron Inn. We arrived late but our room information was waiting for us in the box by the lobby. The room was small but cozy with a patio outside the cabin. The owners have thought of every possible comfort. Each room has a theme. We stayed in "Write." From the old typewriter,...

Hi there Pamela! Sounds to us like you did everything right at The Andiron! We do tell people the hot tub is a little bit magical, but we've never heard the environs described as a fairy glen...and we like it! I'm sure our little beggars (those rascally goats!) loved visiting with you. They love people and treats. If they could...

Cabins are quiet and spacious enough with amenities that are useful for vacation travel, including games, movie rentals, books, and in our particular cabin, a telescope and binoculars. Management staff was kind and helpful, the room was clean but is not maintained everyday unless requested. Our only complaint was the specific location of our cabin (unit # 11), which is...

Thanks for your nice review! I'm sorry the highway noise bugged you - what were planners thinking putting the highway right next to the ocean where all the inns are? It does get pretty quiet at night, perfect for using that telescope to see the stars. Hope you enjoyed that. Oh! And we just hit up an estate sale and...

A simply wonderful place to spend a few days. My wife and I stayed in the 'Read' cabin, which we loved. The decorations make it feel like a little cottage and there is a little kitchen to make breakfast or what have you. Each cabin has a little deck to sit out on and have a drink. There is also...
