Tide Watcher suite is a dream. The ladies of The Commons have thoughtfully provided every creature comfort one could want. We were cozy during the blustery storm and today is picture perfect. As many others have written, I hope to return.

Back for our second visit to The Commons! Our first trip was an exceptional long weekend last fall, during which we stayed in Water's Edge. We loved Eastport so much we immediately began planning to return this summer. This time, we stayed the entire week, really experiencing all the town has to offer. A wonderful corner of the world -- hope to return!
