A Quiet Beach Vacation with Baby

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 24, 2006

We spent 6 nights at the Anchor Motel in mid-September and couldn't have asked for a more perfect place for a quiet beach vacation with our baby. The owners, Gene and Gail, were friendly but unobtrusive, and went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Gene was on-site 24/7, and they were both always cleaning outside and in.

The room was spotless and kept that way through the week. Towels were relatively small and the only toiletry provided was soap, so bring your own shampoo, etc. Our room, #6 (of 13 rooms), had a king-size bed and plenty of room on the side for the portable crib; however, one corner was at an angle to allow for the office doorway next door, so other rooms were probably slightly bigger. The bedding was homey - a flowery fitted sheet with a pink and lacey top sheet - like staying at a favorite aunt's. Our room and the one on the other side of the office didn't have a separate deck like the rest of the rooms - *maybe* we would have spent more time on the deck if it wasn't sort of part of the office entrance.

Unique Quality: The location was absolutely perfect - literally steps away from the beach. No need to worry about parking, using public facilities, etc. We were able to even get onto the beach to see the sun rise one morning - just threw on some clothes and stepped out. Since this is a quiet residential area, be aware that you do have to drive or take a cab to get food (the fridge provided is a good-size one, enough to hold groceries). There's no microwave (yet - hint, hint, Gene). Coffee and doughnuts are provided in the morning, but I would suggest getting some doughboys from Iggy's at least once as well. Share some with Gene - he likes them. :)

We'll definitely be staying here again!

Directions: right across from Scarborough State Beach, intersection with Burnside Ave.
