pronounced ‘Foëk sul
Just a short distance form the parking area, and off the stone terrace you will find the private outdoor entrance of the Fo’c’sle, a lovely lower level accommodation built in 1997. Fo’c’sle is a shortening for the nautical term “forecastle” – an area at the bow of the ship and often the sleeping quarters of sailors on square riggers. The Fo’c’sle is a lovely, room with solid beams and wide pine floorboards. It’s two-person Jacuzzi tub overlooking a woodburning fireplace makes it one of The Inn’s most popular accommodations. A comfortable bathroom is on the left with a pedestal sink, bidet and shower. The guest room’s bed is a queen, with night tables and reading lamps on either side. A hanging closet and spacious shelves behind the fireplace provide storage for guest clothing. There are a set of doors which adjoin The Fo’c’sle and its neighbor, the Captain’s Cabin, which can be opened to create a suite. This accommodation, while not built to ADA specifications, is quite easily accessible to a handicapped person who is not wheelchair-bound, and the common areas of the Inn may be reached with a minimal number of steps.
As with all our guest rooms, The Fo’c’sle has a private bathroom, air conditioning (in-season), cable television, a DVD player (we have movies for all ages), clock radio. You will need to come upstairs to access WI-FI – the room is too far from the wireless. All beds have special reading lights or side tables with reading lamps. Firewood for this room is provided at no charge.
