Runaway Hill Inn Review

Set on gorgeous rolling grounds, this quiet seaside inn feels far removed from the rest of the island, which is precisely the point. This is not a place you'll be waited on hand and foot. Rather, longtime guests appreciate the lived-in quality of this rambling 1938 New England–style beach house, where you have the run of the place and can be left alone to mix a drink at the honor bar, relax poolside, or head down the steps to the beach. The lobby and rooms were renovated in 2009. Guest rooms are simply furnished in a comfortable contemporary style, and bathrooms display colorful tile work and Fresh bath products. Request Room No. 2, where you can savor the breathtaking view of the ocean while lying in your bed. At dinnertime, Chef Luc Castilloux serves French and Bahamian cuisine with modern fusion touches.
