This stately old colonial home, filled with antiques, West Indian relics, and family flotsam and jetsam, is overseen by owner Ronnie Lockhart, who grew up here. It has plenty of old-world personality, with elegant and airy parlor rooms, some with walls lined with early-19th-century stonework. Rooms are oversized and high-ceilinged but not particularly fancy. Three of the five accommodations have shared facilities in the corridors; of the two rooms with private baths, one is downstairs and the other is up (both have queen four-posters). Stay here if you appreciate old-school languor…or look forward to soaking in views of the harbor from the veranda while sipping a cocktail from the honor bar.
