The Story

Nearly 200 years of hospitality have unfolded within the shingled walls, dating back to the 1830s, when Captain Calder built the Coastal Federal-style mansion. In 1870, the doors were opened to travelers, inspiring the design narrative of a nonchalant innkeeper's humble abode. The House reflects her nostalgic musing for the Island's native botany, fostering a retreat for holistic wellness.
