Alas, The Beach Rose Inn is Permanently Closed to Guests


This was the The Beach Rose Inn's website until it closed just before the start of the  2014 season. The owners announced that a local nonprofit organization had leased the property to serve the needs of their very worthy families.  For those of us who stayed there over the years, I would like to say that we will miss you.
The content below is from the site;s archived pages and other sources. Please consider this site a tribute to the The Beach Rose Inn and consider the information in its historical context.
