In a quiet part of town, just a short walk from the lively quayside area, the Lodge is a traditional-style two-story gabled house with off-street parking. Inside, it is cozy and unfussy, with pine floors, leather armchairs, and walls painted mostly in rich reds and warm yellows. It makes a comfortable, friendly, and convenient base for a visit to Westport and has much repeat business—and also some self-catering accommodations. The most sought-after bedroom has a four-poster bed and an open fire, but all are spacious, with pine furniture and coordinated striped curtains and spreads. Rooms have flat-screen TVs and refrigerators, and there is a computer for guests in the lounge. The small backyard has been given over to a flock of hens, which you can watch through the dining-room window while enjoying breakfast. Don't forget to say thank you for the eggs.
