Built in 1746 – this Colonial inn allows guests to step back in time, with all the comforts of today. With wide-planked floorboards, candlelit breakfast and a fireplace in every room, you’ll feel transported to another era. For those seeking the creature comforts of today – we offer flat-panel TVs, air conditioning, whirlpool tubs with Tommy Bahama soaps and shampoos, and wifi throughout the house. Have a nip of sherry in the parlor – or a chat with the innkeeper in the kitchen – then retire to your room.
JOIN US FOR AFTERNOON TEA!
Served in our formal dining room on fine English china, our Afternoon Tea includes a selection of local teas from Simpson and Vail, homemade scones with clotted cream and locally made preserves, tasty finger sandwiches, decadent chocolates and homemade desserts. Eat and chat while THE DEACON takes care of everything!
THE DEACON offers five elegantly appointed guest rooms – each with its own private bathroom. All rooms offer a fireplace – choose from wood burning (we provide the wood!) or gas. Some rooms feature a whirlpool tub for bubbly relaxation, some rooms offer a separate sitting area for quiet reflection. Complimentary bottled water and chocolates grace every room. Let us know your travel needs and the number in your party, and we’ll make a recommendation.
Wander up and down gas-lit Main Street. Visit the quaint little shops and the historic district. Ride one of our bikes along the scenic, coastal bicycle loop. Go to the beach – ask us for free parking passes. Browse our Wellness Library and put your feet up with a book or two. Pop next door – The James Pharmacy has freshly made gelato, cappuccino, and espresso.
