The oldest part of the Whitehall is an 1834 white-clapboard sea captain's home, and much of the rest of this historic lodging was built in the early 1900s. The Millay Room preserves memorabilia of the poet Edna St. Vincent Millay, who grew up in the area and read her poetry at the Whitehall. Some baths have been updated with walk-in showers, while others have original claw-foot tubs. Look for white bedspreads and many original furnishings, like dark-grained headboards.
The restaurant, Vincent's, serves traditional and creative American cuisine, including seafood specialties.
