Very nice

  • 5 of 5

The rooms are spacious and comfortable. You can see the ocean from the bedroom and living room and the outside area is lovely. You can easily see the sunset over the water (on the other side) from the parking lot or take the short walk to the famous cribstone bridge. The pebble beach is terrific.

Seacoast Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed are time at Orr's Island and the Anchor was a well arrange, cozy, nicely furnished base for our holiday week. Tim was very helpful in getting us settled and full of helpful suggestions regarding the area. We especially enjoyed watching the sea and boats while eating breakfast and dinner from the dinning table and walking the rocky beach early in the morning. What fun to watch the fog roll in! Thank you for a special place to stay and wonderful time!

Wonderful vacation

We enjoyed our week at the Anchor. It was perfect for my husband and I and our 6 month old twin boys. We are planning to go back next year or the year after.

Everything for a great stay

  • 5 of 5

The Anchor was cozy, clean and complete with everything I needed for my recent stay. It was in my favorite area of "the islands" with a number of places within easy walking distance. The deck off the living room, with dining table, chairs and barbeque grill was a favorite spot to enjoy breakfast with a view. The shady fire pit area was pleasant during hot afternoons, and a very short walk brings you to a lovely rocky beach. I especially appreciated the fact that Cheryl and Tim let you know if there is an opportunity for early check-in. I will definitely look to return next year.
