    Great place with a sense of history. Friendly staff recommended very nice restaurants, and we also enjoyed two evenings of drinks and dinner on the back porch, with wonderful ocean views. We highly recommend the Emerson Inn for a fun or romantic getaway.

    Hi! Apologies for the late reply! The property is wheelchair accessible, but unfortunately all bathrooms at the property are shower/tub combinations, not a true "step in shower". Hope this helps!
