With its distinct red mansard roof and great lawn overlooking the sea, this venerable hotel is one of BI's most beloved, and VERY popular for weddings. It's also been THE place for visiting celebs, including Mark Twain, Ulysees S. Grant and many members of the Kennedy Clan. Town is steps away, and rooms are big by island standards, and pretty if a bit rustic. On the grounds is a swimmable pond. If you can, try and nab a corner room facing the ocean. Thursday-night martini nights are very popular.
