The overall experience was wonderful. We wanted to relax on our vacation and Carpe's commons area provided a quiet, comfortable ambiance. The social breakfast and wine and cheese hour were great to get to know our fellow travelers and our hosts.

Great room, great patio, great spa, great hosts, incredible breakfast. My boyfriend had to go to an appointment in Boston the next morning and didn't want to leave. The whole stay was lovely. You really didn't want to go into town.
