Well, the Tidewater is an institution of Vinalhaven. It sort of reflects the essence of the island - unassuming, sturdy, clean and just want you want. The loudest thing is the sound of the tide going and coming that flows under the bridge. You will just love this little place. It is run in a laid back way - don't be surprised if your key is left with a note on the counter in the office when you arrive. They have bikes to rent and lots of wonderful stories. And make sure you check out the museum at the historical society - it is wonderful.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Tidewater Motel is built on a bridge separating Carver's Harbor to the south from Carver's Pond, its tidal estuary, to the north. The same rush of ocean water coming and going right under your harborside room once powered a blacksmith shop and grist mill on the site. Few views can equal those at the Tidewater and few places are as relaxing; the ebb and flow is nature's own sedative. Still, the world's most productive lobster fleet, anchored right outside your window, gets an early start, so you may not want to sleep in. Open year-round, the Tidewater is the island's only motel. If you want to be closer to the water, you'll have to get wet. ... more less
