First and foremost, staying at this bed and breakfast exceeded my expectations. Bill and Joey are like family, they made my husband and myself along with 2 other wonderful couples (family) feel like we were at home and extremely comfortable, it was like staying with your favorite relatives for the weekend! The bed and breakfast is gorgeous and it is...

Awesome little cottage. All updated with everything you need-towels appliances etc, Says sleeps six, but is more suited to four due to one bathroom. Steps to all the action but quiet. Very clean. Bicycles included.

We liked everything about this B&B. Clearly professionally decorated. Staff very courteous and helpful but not obtrusive . Breakfast Buffet was excellent and coffee great. Well located, we walked to most of the attractions. I suggest the " Goat" for dinner. We will absolutely be back!

My family and I spent a week housed in the cute Wee Anchor this July. Various updates on the property were a nice surprise! The cottage is exceptionally clean, beds are super comfy, and there's plenty of seating for everyone to relax in the front room. This was our second year at Wee Anchor and we continue to feel at...

Wee Anchor Inn is in a perfect location! Close enough to the action, yet far enough to get a quiet nights rest!! Stayed with my husband and 2 adult daughters. The cottage was a great fit for us. We enjoyed grilling & having the kitchen. Extremely Clean, Private & Comfy.

We recently stayed at The Anchor Inn. It was a pleasant and very clean place. Joey and Bill welcomed us into their home and at times were around to socialize. You can tell that they love this place. We stayed in the stateroom which was large, had a king size bed and a private bathroom. The view was great to...

We had a great time staying at Anchor Inn. We stayed on a Sunday night so we avoided some of the weekend nonsense. The Garden Balcony room was clean and had a decent amount of space. The balcony was nice however I believe they recently built a garage behind the home so we were looking into the second floor windows...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Anchor Boutique Hotel is a quirky, one-of-a-kind hotel, with light-hearted, 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. You won't find a party hotel at this location. There are no crowds here, no loud music, no slamming doors, and no noisy hallways. 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. Each guest room or suite has been thoughtfully designed with handpicked elements and furnishings, a touch of whimsy and all the comforts of home. Our guest rooms are appointed with the finest bed linens on a super plush but firm king bed, and four pillows of your choice (feather, soft, firm, or foam.) Your room is complete with french doors leading to your own private balcony to enjoy those afternoon cocktails or reading a book. You control the A/C and heat to keep you at the perfect temperature and each room has a full wrap of insulation, creating a quiet sleeping space. Extra fans are located in the closets if you prefer 'white noise.' Generous in size, our well equipped rooms include a refrigerator with cold bottled water, a pod coffee and tea maker, a large digital TV, a plush chair for relaxing and reading, robes, slippers, beach towels, and all the other necessities including an iron, ironing board, hair dryer, and extra blankets. An iPhone/iPod dock and jack are available so you can hear your own music. Safes are in the room to keep your valuables, well......safe! The en-suite bathrooms feature an oversized rain-head shower, plush towels, and several full lines of luxury amenities and toiletries. We have lighted mirrors, towel warmers and a clothes line for drying swimsuits and delicates. Toiletries include artisan soaps, shower gels, shampoo and conditioners. Amenities include sunscreen, bug spray and laundry spot removers for those 'oopsy daisy' moments that invariably happen while on vacation. Checking in or out, it's never been so easy or effortless. Our professional front desk personnel will make it quick! Drop your bags in the lift, and they will arrive at your room before you do. Wanting to store a bag or two before checking in or leaving the island? Our locked storage and baggage ID system will make your bags safe and secure. Your security is important to us, and we take it seriously. Exterior doors are locked at 6pm until 10am to eliminate un-registered guests. You will be given a code upon check in so that you may access the hotel. The hotel has a built in 24 hour monitoring system in place to keep an eye out for your safety. A full, hot breakfast is available and served buffet style. Menus change daily. A partial list of our breakfast items may include eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, pancakes, breakfast sandwiches, bagels, baked goods, meat and cheese trays, fruit, juices, freshly ground and brewed coffee and an assortment of teas. Breakfast is available from 8:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. A breakfast in bed option is available (as an add on item). Our staff is friendly, fun and always professional. We say hello, pay attention to the details, and will resolve any guest issues with prompt attention. Management and the owners will go out of their way to help you enjoy your stay. Let us give you a warm WELCOME to Put-in-Bay's boutique hotel! ... more   less
