The Inn was built in 1830 for Henry Harding, a renowned whaling captain. In the early nineteen hundreds it became a gentleman’s farm, known as Whalewalk Farm, then owned by the Kent family of PR Lorillard tobacco fame. With a cow and horse still living in what is now the Salt Box Cottage, the farm was purchased in 1953 and turned into an inn. Since that time it has been authentically restored and creatively redecorated. The common rooms are filled with the Innkeeper’s extensive Waterford Crystal collection, 19th century country antiques from England and France, fresh flowers, and oriental rugs for a warm welcome to start your stay.
"If we had to choose a summer home away from home, the Whalewalk Inn would most definitely be on our list. In fact, we paid a visit to the innkeepers to learn just how they succeed in pleasing their guests so thoroughly."
The Carriage House 5.
This room has it all – romance, romance, and more. Decorated in pale green and lavender, spring abounds with blooms of wisteria on the wallpaper. Open the French doors onto your private patio overlooking the meadow while savoring a warm cup of coffee or tea, write a note while seated on your window seat, or relish the warmth of the gas fireplace from your winged back chairs in the sunken sitting area.

Wind down from a day of sightseeing in your Jacuzzi for two with our bath salts, and a glass of wine chilled in your own refrigerator, served from your own wet bar. After a long soak, wrap up in our bathrobes, or snuggle down into the four-poster king sized bed where you can enjoy the fire, or watch your favorite TV program or movie from the Inn's collection.
Carriage House 3.
The rich plaids and flowers, in red, yellow and olive green give this room a bright but sophisticated ambiance, making it appealing for all. Relax in your four-poster queen bed, while enjoying the fire in your gas fireplace, or just watching a favorite old movie or one of our newer ones that you may have missed in the theatre. Sit in your wing back chair, while reading a good mystery or mapping out the day’s activities. When the day is done, or even before breakfast, take a nice Jacuzzi to ease the tensions of your other life.
Main Inn Room 4.
Relax in this ivy garden motif, either in your four-poster queen bed or in the large sky-lighted soaking bathtub for two. You can feel the warmth of the gas fireplace from either the bed or the bath. The wrap-around windows make this an exceptionally bright room.
Main Inn Room 1.
This truly unique room has a newly renovated bath/spa, a cozy sitting area in front of the fireplace, and a king spindle four-poster bed. Here you can customize your bathing experience in your Brisa whirlpool tub or Jacuzzi steam room.
Breakfast, the most important meal of the day, starts with a bread, juice and coffee or tea. Then it is followed by the main course -- a sweet or savory breakfast dish. Pictured are our own Whalewalk Inn Eggs Benedict served over Proscuitto.
After a long day of hiking, biking, kayak trips, or the excitement of whale watching, take some time and relax in the hot tub. If you had a quiet day and feel you need more exercise, a brisk swim against the current in our resistance pool will give you that much needed workout.
Take time out to enjoy nature from the view in the gazebo. Join the innkeepers for a hors d’oeuvre hour, and decide which restaurant best suits your mood for the day.
