It was cold and windy outside, and I just wanted clam chowder. In a town full of seafood restaurants, you'd think that would be easy to find, but when you're eating gluten free, it can be a serious challenge indeed. The cute guy out on the sidewalk by the menu was super friendly and told me and my SO that the clam chowder was gluten free -- hurray! He also mentioned how the lobster knuckle sandwich could be made into a salad instead, and he pointed out the sorghum beer on the menu. Beautiful! In we went. Sadly, our server was not nearly as knowledgeable about the menu, and told us that the clam chowder was not GF after all.  What a heart-breaker! I pouted for a while; we eventually ordered the Parmesan fries with truffle oil, which could have stood to be a little crispier, and the shallot fondue with rice crackers, which were boxed rice crackers and just okay. The decor was kind of nice if you like a clean and modern twist.  Didn't try any of the drinks but they looked pretty interesting. We were hungry afterwards and ended up next door at Karoo instead. No clam chowder for me.

We loved the Sage Lounge! The food was incredible... I ate half a dozen raw Wellfleet oysters! Everything was delicious. We actually spent a couple of hours and chatted up the staff. Everyone is incredibly warm and friendly. The customer service is spot on. We had heard about Sage from our friends in CA... and it does not disappoint. Just so you know, it's off Commercial.. so you simply have a look a little harder for it. We will definitely be back the next time we're in Ptown!

Here for six weeks and enjoying the restaurants in this town. I have been to Sage on many occasions and have found the food wonderful. The chef has done an amazing job creating dishes that are unique and can serve two people as small bites. Crab cakes delicious, clam chowder different but great tasting and sliders tasty and just cooked to perfection. Also recommend their chocolate dessert with brownie squares, vanilla bean ice cream and chocolate syrup. Kudos to the women who own Sage and the chef who runs a terrific and on time kitchen.

The Sage Inn is tucked away from Commercial Street but in the center of everything! Our room was extremely clean and the bathroom with the tub was lovely. Sit on the community deck and eat your continental breakfast. I'm so happy a place like this exists in P-town. There is also an outdoor herb wall! I hear the cocktails are delicious here.

Sage Inn and Lounge is incredible.  It's right off Commercial Street, but tucked away so it's peaceful, serene, and beautiful.  The ambiance is incredible, and who wouldn't love oysters served on lemon meringue clouds and clam chowder served tableside?!  The chef had training in France and the menu is full of creative twists on modern favorites.

The rooms are sparkling clean, modern, and spacious.  To top it off, they let you park onsite which is a HUGE bonus.  I can't wait to come back to this little spot in October.  It was fabulous!

Wow!  A friend had told us about this spot so we thought we would give it a try.  I have never considered Provincetown as a great foodie place.  We really come here for the cool weather and the beach.  I was absolutely stunned at the great quality of the menu and the food at the Sage Inn & Lounge.
When we walked in the door the vibe was calm and hip.  The staff was very accommodating, it was raining outside and they offered warm thick beach towels.  Our server recommended the featured cocktail for the evening, a cucumber infused vodka martini with a lemongrass simple syrup, fresh squeezed lime juice, chili threads and a lime twist.  It was delicious.  
The menu style has a variety of small plates similar to concepts we see in Austin. The Sage  uses local, fresh ingredients, farm to table concept. We asked the server how many items we should order for the two of us; she recommended starting with two and we could order more if we wanted more. We ordered the Knuckle Lobster Sliders to start.  The buns were so fresh, soft and warm.  The large pieces of lobster were  cold and very flavorful, yummy beet chips were served on the plate as well.  The Pork Belly was next for us, OMG, really really good.  For dessert we had the Key Lime Parfait which was a perfect, light way to end our meal.
I really hope people will get out and try this place, the chef is young and very talented, the interior is very soothing and most incredibly if you are a member of many of the non profit organizations in Provincetown that they list on their menu they give back a percentage of your check to that organization.

I was looking for a place to take my mom out for her birthday, and we spotted this place on the list of events for Holly Folly. It sounded nice, so we decided to check it out. It's where the Vixen used to be. They were listed as closing at 7 p.m., and we got there at 6:30, but they were super kind about that, and didn't kick us out - I think we finished up after 7:30. Mom got a coffee drink, I got the bloody Mary without shrimp, and we split some olives (the chef's choice yelp appetizer offer), a cheese plate, and eggs Benedict. The decor is pleasant - we sat right next to the fireplace. When we were finishing up, the owner came over to ask how everything was. We started chatting and she showed us around a little - she's just moving into their second year. This is her first time in the hospitality business, but she's off to a good start. On our way out, our server laden us with gingerbread men and coconut macaroons to take with us for mom's birthday. It's in a nice location in that it is both centrally located, and at the same time tucked away off of Commercial St. I will definitely keep this place in mind for my future trips to P-town.

My review is mostly for the drinks, which were really spectacular.  The decor and feel is amazing here, and I will definitely return for more food in the future.  Love the variety of vegetarian options on the menu - we had the Mediterranean flatbread which actually wasn't great, but everyone's food around us looked amazing.  The flatbread was really bitter and not super cheesy, so the bitterness didn't get subdued by anything else on the plate.  We had the Celery Inferno and the Ptown Super Juice... wow, the Inferno was amazingggggggggg.

Lived up to expectations based on other reviews. Rooms are nice and clean. Spacious for Ptown. Location is really excellent within walking distance to everything and very close to main pier for the shuttle back to Boston . Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Nice tapas style. The service was great. I liked the casual atmosphere of the chairs around a long coffee table. Most of the food were good but the lobster slider was amazing. A little pricey but it's PTown, of course it's pricey.

Consider me pleasantly surprised.
The Sage Inn is a great little spot off of the main drag in PTown. In fact, as you're walking down Commercial Street, you're likely to miss it.

The rooms are small, but quaint. The furnishings are just fine having been recently renovated.

Booking the room was also a breeze, with the staff being very accommodating and helpful.

The lounge and bar is nice. They've got great cocktails and even fun twists on their beers. I ordered a simple stout and the bartender suggested sprucing it up with a Chambord Floater. It added a lovely fruit essence to what would have been an ordinary beer.

Parking is limited, so be sure to book early so you can snag a parking spot for yourself.

I stayed during family week and had a really wonderful experience here at Sage. The rooms are beautiful and super clean and the staff is incredibly kind and welcoming. Sage also served as an event location for some of the family week festivities. They were always accommodating for whatever size group we had and seemed genuinely happy to have us there. Can't say enough good things about it and I can't wait to come back!

We visited Sage for a friend's birthday while in Ptown for drinks and snacks. Although they don't serve large entrees, there's enough good stuff on the menu that you good easily go here for dinner. The lobster sliders, beef short rib, Wellfleet oysters, and truffle fries were all excellent, but the flatbreads were a bit boring compared to the rest. The meza trio (goat cheese, hummus, and tapenade) was delicious! The tapenade was the best with a bright, lemony taste, and refills of toasted pita were brought over so we could scoop up every bite. Finally for dessert we had the Sundae Gone Rogue: vanilla ice cream rolled in crushed potato chips, with chocolate sauce and bacon--wow! Absolutely fantastic. And throughout the meal the service was friendly and warm. Definitely recommended.

Lovely property & excellent service.  Sorry we didnt get to try the happy hour (we were there on Tuesday), but the rest of the staff were fantastic!  This property is right in the middle of everything & has everything you need.  We will definitely stay again when we are in Ptown!

Sage is set back from Commercial Street and you would go right by it without noticing it, but it is a bit of a hidden gem.  Spent two nights here and had a very enjoyable stay, complete with tasty drinks from the lounge, which were some of the best we had on our trip.  The lobby and lounge area is great; modern and chic yet warm and inviting.  The hotel room was great for the price.  It was big by Provincetown standards and came complete with a couch, table for two, mini refrigerator, et cetera.  The room didn't feel cramped and was spacious.  The staff were also friendly and uber accomodating.

The only draw back was some SUPER obnoxious creeking/ticking noise in the wall that slowly and painfully drove us to insanity whenever we were in the room.  Luckily we didn't spend too much time there but trying to sleep with tick tick tick tick tick happening every single second was a bit of a challenge.  I think I can still hear the ticking even now.

Sad for this spot, it's hidden off the main drag and was dead on a Saturday at 8:30pm. A needed addition to our town, a restaurant/lounge with a spiffy renovation and a varied menu of small plates. Hope it catches on...

Beef sliders, clam chowder, olive tapenade, asparagus salad, malt and herb fries, and fish tacos. Pretty good stuff and not wildly priced.

Maybe they need some cool background music (wasn't on the outdoor deck seating) to liven things up?

And the waiter was helpful and quirky and kept making goo-goo eyes at my dining companion. Sorry, honey, he's my hubby--taken!

Possibly the most delicious, buttery lobster roll sliders I've ever eaten. You definitely help make sure Massachusetts is known for them! The drinks were also really fantastic--I got the sage cucumber and the sage julep--SO good. And great service too.

Sage was an amazing find!  The atmosphere was perfect with a lounge feel, great live music and a relaxed vibe.  The menu was sophisticated yet offered just the right variety of comfort good mixed with seasonal dishes.  The American flat bread with fried Mac n cheese was amazing!  Also we enjoyed both of the beef sliders and collectively decided they were some of the best burgers we have ever had!  The flights of wine and beer offered a great variety as well.  The staff was attentive and gracious!  We would return in a heartbeat!  Fantastic dining experience!

I want Sage to be a 5 star establishment  because the food, space and service has always been 5 star.

However, to me, it lacks something very important: an identity. It is stylishly sterile. When I bring friends there they always ask " what is it?"... A lounge  a bar, a restaurant?? In general people do not want to eat and drink on couches and coffee tables. It's awkward, messy and does not make a good impression for a first date.

Hands down - Best food in town. The menu is interesting and fairly priced. You'll find some unique ideas and foods here unlike a lot of places in town that are basically glorified fish fry's. You won't walk away from here with a stomach full of grease and butter and shellfish.

The chef can accommodate any dietary restriction which is a huge step past many places who have a salad with bacon or microwaved veggie burger for vegetarian options. The drink menu is awesome. The cucumber infused drinks are great.

The lounge setting is relaxing with nice couches and comfy chairs. Perfect for two person dinners or a group of friends.

Highly recommended.

I loved this hidden gem, tucked back off Commercial Street. For our fifth visit to Ptown, we were looking for a new spot to try, and we stumbled across Sage. My only complaint is their hours-they don't open 'til 5, and sometimes you just want a snack and a drink a bit earlier than that. The staff has a bit of sass (which I love!) and the drinks are incredible; very imaginative and well presented with fresh herbs (including but also beyond the namesake sage).

We had a light dinner, and the plates are all a wonderful size for sharing. Four of us ordered 6-8 items and snacked our way through a delicious dinner before a show.

Some reviewers have commented on the lack of traditional tables-it's true, this is lounge seating, and you're eating off cocktail-height tables. For a five-course meal, it would be a drawback, but for sharing small plates, it works well.

I look forward to making Sage a regular part of my Ptown visits.

I think they named this place Sage because after they took over the Vixen they had to burn ten million bundles of sage to get rid of all the bad karma and heebie jeebies that Vixen had. That, a couple coats of paint, and some very nice upgrades to the front bar make Sage a spot worth checking out.

On my recent visit, I didn't spend any time in the fancy front bar, with a classy gas fireplace showcased prominently, cool light fixtures and modern sofas and chairs. Instead, I opted to watch football in a camp chair in the back bar. Which was awesome, btw. They had this tailgate-themed thing where they showed the game on a projector and sold corn dogs and stuff like that. The place was pretty packed with lesbians, considering it was October and Ptown was winding down for the season.

The new look says, "Relax and enjoy some Chardonnay or an infused cocktail while you discuss independent films with your friends," where the old Vixen was more, "Drink 6 shots in an hour and vomit in/near me while your friends are doing blow in the bathroom." I don't drink wine, but I'll take that scene over the latter. Sometimes anyway.

Pros: Off season it's quite affordable. It's in the center of town so everything is an easy walk (make sure you go across the street and try the burgers at the Squealing Pig). Nice decor.

Cons: Maybe because it was off season it wasn't as clean as it should be. There was dust and some things that should shine and sparkle didn't shine and sparkle. Noise really carries in this hotel.

Neutral: The continental breakfast. It was decent but lacking in things that weren't sugary. Putting out some hard boiled eggs could easily remedy that. And, perhaps. having some greek yogurt that isn't flavored.

Would I go back? Probably, just to give it another chance. But I'd ask for a room at the end of the hall on the third floor to get away from noise.

I really liked the Sage Inn.  It's the old Pilgrim House, refreshed, repainted and re-imagined, and it pretty much works.

The rooms are above the loungey small plates and events space with access through there until 1am, or at all hours from outside overnight via an elevated walkway from Commercial Street.

The rooms are small, tidy and clean, and a nice bathroom. All more than adequate if not spacious or exactly luxurious. For the money, it's perfectly nice.

I don't love the bath products in pumps, as much as a laud the environmentally friendly nature of it, there  is too much risk of someone tampering with the products, and who doesn't like itty bitty shampoos to take home? :)

My biggest issue about the place is the lack of a public area for guests to hang out in. Since he entire downstairs is given over to a lounge and public spaces, there is no place to just hang out and read, have coffee, etc.  There is a small upstairs lobby area and smaller function / overflow bar. Those need to be turned into space for paying hotel guests to hang out, with 24 hour coffee service (and an ice machine -- as nice as they are about getting you ice, it needs to be available around the clock.)

So that's why the 1 star off perfect -- invest in some public space for the guests and you'd be a 5 star place.

Quality towels
Comfy bed and pillows
Clean modern rooms
iPod clock radio
Tv with cable

Lack of individual bath products, no mouthwash or lotion
No fridge
Skimpy bfast
No DVD player
No common area for guests

Came here in the off-season to experience the new place that I've heard so much about.

It has a little bit of a small-town charm meets upper-east side elegance to it.  Everything is manicured with neutral tones of mushroom, taupe, and sage.  The tables are low to the ground and are more meant for a quick bite to eat - they are a bit uncomfortable if you are planning on staying for a full meal - as you need to hunch over to eat.  The drinks were very delicious.  The food was yummy - served tapas style.

Went to the Sage Lounge on the advice of some friends. Service was chaotic and disorganized. Our waiter was very attentive and pleasant but the bar staff was a nightmare. My fiancé has a gluten allergy and asked for one particular drink, specifying she wanted it with potato vodka instead of the wheat-based lime vodka.

The server checked with the bartender who indicated that the vodka listed was gluten free. A simple google search confirmed that it was, in fact, not. After mentioning it to the server, the bartender refused to make the drink with the substitute vodka, acting like the entire world would crumble if he had to sub out a vodka and his ancient and noble craft would suffer a horrific injustice. All this for $12/ drink.  

To top it off, after the 35 minutes of haggling for drinks- they weren't even that good- try Victors on Bradford and avoid the attitude and get better food!

I love this place. Me and my fiance had our first visit to the Sage during Memorial Day weekend and now refuse to stay anywhere else. We are planning a second stay for Columbus Day weekend next month and are excited to be visiting again. The staff was very personable and accommodating. The room was comfortable and appealing. Breakfast was a bit boring but a nice free perk. This visit we plan on trying out the food and drink they have to offer. The location is absolutely perfect and set back away from the hustle and bustle of Commercial street but you can still sit up on the deck and people watch from a safe distance. I highly recommend this Inn as a "must stay". We will not stay anywhere else.

If you are looking for a unique take on clam chowder, Sage will not disappoint. The deconstructed chowder was one of the best chowders I had in Ptown. The only criticism is that I wish there had been more than two clams. Other than that, the broth was seasoned beautifully and wasn't too thick. In addition, their cocktail menu is to die for. I would definitely recommend stopping in for a drink if nothing else.

Sage looks great on paper. Convenient location, tapas-style menu in the bar, off-street parking (for a fee, for overnight guests). But the reality was a letdown.

My visit was in the off season (early spring). I phoned Sage twice before my visit for details about services and amenities. The rep was uninformed and somewhat dismissive. I got conflicting information each time I called -- and was told something else altogether when I arrived.

Parking is in a very cramped gravel lot behind the building, with a steep and narrow entry. It is impossible to find unless you have directions to it, which the hotel failed to provide in advance.

My room was not ready until over a half hour after check-in time. I had been driving for a few hours and didn't appreciate the delay.

I settled into my room, and the bathroom sink was clogged. Thom, the on-site caretaker, took care of it promptly and graciously.

The room (not a "select" one) was clean enough but quite small. The single window looked out onto a building a few feet away. No fridge. Mattress and pillows weren't terribly comfy.

The continental breakfast consisted of hardboiled eggs and fresh fruit (the only edible items), sweetened fruity yogurt, sweetened cereal, small muffins, juice and coffee/tea. The addition of whole-grain breads or unsweetened yogurt would be welcome. Judging by the decor and its "green" aspirations, the hotel seems to be going for a hip spa vibe, but the food choices for breakfast are a disconnect.

The front desk is manned only until the bar closes. After that the doors are locked and guests have to enter through a second-floor bridge entryway. Thom's number is posted for any after-hours needs.

For the final night of my three-day stay, a couple had checked in to the room next door, and I discovered how thin the walls are. I was kept awake all night by conversation and snoring. At 1:30 AM I actually considered packing up my car and driving home, but I was too exhausted. This was the final straw for me. I won't be going back.

Went here 10/17/14 from Austin, TX during Women's Week and we loved the beautiful relaxing environment and small plates selection.  We also had the wine flight and every tasting was good.  The teriyaki green bean salad and pork sliders were so tasty.  One of the owners came by to check on us and even gave us the recipe.  This was my favorite restaurant and we are very picky foodies!  Loved it.

My wife and I went here for dinner on a Saturday night. They had live music that was very nice and relaxing. We sat at the bar and had a few drinks and a couple different sliders. There wasn't one thing that wasn't anything short of amazing. The mixologist working the bar knew exactly what he was doing with inventing drinks and being a server. Next time we are in town we will definitely be coming back at least ones, probably once per day.

They had, some of the BEST cocktails I've had in years (and I lived in Boston for 10 years)!!!  We had, "tales by the campfire," "lime light," "cherry blossom" and an espresso martini.  All were spectacular! The campfire drinks is a must try - they smoke their own bourbon w/wood chips - I've NEVER tasted anything quite like it.  Lime light was creamy - like key lime pie and the cherry blossom was a smooth, tart cherry flavor. The espresso martini and kitten w/a whip was just your average good drink but the other 3 blew us away. I also had the goat cheese platter - an award winner I was told and it was also amazing. No hard feelings its footprint stands where vixen night club used to be.  We also had great service and the staff was very friendly and polite, like they had time for us - sometimes difficult to find in ptown.

Fantastic food, terrible service, mediocre atmosphere. Everything we ate was tasty from the cocktails to the tapas-style lamb sliders and fried pickles, but the drinks took FOREVER (and it wasn't crowded), our waiter screwed up our order and then ignored us the rest of the meal, and it was so bright in the restaurant, and sitting in the middle of the room we felt very exposed. Still, delicious beet soup and yummy (albeit too salty) flatbread pizza.

Should first state I'm reviewing the restaurant/lounge not the hotel.

Nice place to hang out and have a cocktail, decor is very nice. Sat at the bar and staff was a little snarky but it's Ptown. Shared a bottle of white wine and the bartender was keeping it cold for us but then never served the rest of the bottle to us. Trust me I would've drank it with my food. Oh well, on vacation.  

Also ordered flat bread and short rib sliders. Sliders were awesome...understatement....they were absolutely amazing. Kale and goat cheese flat bread was super salty.

Returned for the Calamari Sisters Comedy (drag) show and it was highly entertaining for a reasonable price.

This review is mostly about the "Inn" side of this business. We stayed in room 307 for 5 nights during Bear Week.

Chris C. (review dtd 11/15/2012 quoted below) and I agree 100% on the biggest negative issue:

"the lack of a public area for guests to hang out in. Since he entire downstairs is given over to a lounge and public spaces, there is no place to just hang out and read, have coffee, etc.  There is a small upstairs lobby area and smaller function / overflow bar. Those need to be turned into space for paying hotel guests to hang out"

We were allowed (and even encouraged) to hang out in the space IF (big "if") no other paying function is scheduled. There were 4 semi-comfortable chairs in the space and 2 user friendly 4 person tables. No place to "lounge"; i.e. put your feet up and lounge . All the chairs on 2nd floor balcony are hard and straight back. There is a comfy outdoor lounge area with comfy cushioned furniture on the 1st floor BUT (big "but") you can not take alcoholic drinks out there. (I am betting that is a legal, nonnegotiable, restriction.) Note: Room 307 has 2 straight back cane chairs and a wooden round table. That is why this shortcoming is important.

Room 307 has a small refrigerator also (unlike Chris C.'s room). I was glad to see that. That saved the 1/2 of a huge pork chop I had left over from one meal. There is no microwave in the room or "make-your-own" coffee service tray. The breakfast is is no protein/high carbohydrate; which is typical inn fare. Only fruit I saw was grapefruit. I need protein to start my day right so that was a none starter for us.

(Mostly) Good stuff:
Friendly, helpful staff and owners. Everyone we came in contact with was 100% customer oriented.

Location. Location. Location: Set back just enough off Commercial St to dim the noise. You can still people watch from 2nd floor balcony. Quiet rooms. No problem with noise even during Bear Week. It is about as close to the "heart" of the PTown action as you can get. Ideal if you are using the Ferry.

Free parking for 3 of our 5 night stay. Moved to Private Parking for 2 days ($26 daily).

Pets allowed (apparently). There were a few friendly pets in other rooms.

Restaurant: The bartender and drinks are killer good. The food is excellent. We had a SPAM slider (with Kimchi) that was surprisingly excellent. Yes the portions are small-ish and the prices PTown high. Nevertheless, we will eat here when we come back to PTown even if we do not stay here.

Summary: I would stay here again for a shorter stay (no more than 3 days). After hitting all the spots for 3 days you body wants to "lounge-out"  but you don't want to be cooped up by 4 view-less room walls either.

Been coming to Ptown for 30 years and this is one of the most unique places I've seen come to town. Came for a happy hour drink and some nosh, enjoyed the small plates and cocktails so much we cancelled our dinner reservations and ordered more! The eggplant fries were to die for! Also noteworthy was Mac &cheese flat bread.
Fun crowd the night we were there. Nice lounge seating, great feel!

We LOVED the Sage lounge - the classy, low key vibe (sage color scheme, of course), the way sage and other herbs (grown on site) work their way into fragrant, potent cocktails, and some pretty damn amazing customer service.

We started off with the sage cucumber cocktail (gin, cucumber, ginger, fresh sage, lemon juice) and the celery inferno with cucumber vodka, celery juice & bitters, ancho chili, and black pepper syrup. For a hotel lounge, the cocktails are downright POSH.

We continued with two dessert cocktails, a Reese's martini with house infused peanut butter vodka (sounds odd but it works) and a coconut lime cocktail with Kaffir lime vodka.

Alana was our server and it wasn't long before the conversation evolved into photos of our pets and chat about recipes. She's awesome.

We're here all week so we will be back for drinks and some apps. The entire menu is fabulous.

We couldn't get away from this place fast enough.
We sat out on the upper patio because it is pet friendly. We asked a passing waiter (perhaps busboy?) who was clearing the neighboring empty table if there was any music. His response was, "if there was music you would hear it."  We had already ordered our drinks and appetizers so we felt obligated to stay. Moments later, a manager (host?) was setting up a table for a family (who decided not to stay on the patio with no view) about the music and he said he would turn it on right away. It never did get turned on.
Although we were the only diners, we didn't get any utensils or napkins when the food arrived so we ate our olives and chips & dip with our fingers and wiped our hands on a cocktail napkin.
We had one beer, a small glass of sangria on ice, a tiny bowl of potato chips with ranch dressing and some olives for $30.

Beautiful place, very friendly people. Sorry but I wouldn't stay their again. Walls paper thin, could hear the guy next door snoring and talking very softly. Pipes banged ever time someone turned the water on and the bed was horrible.

Review for the lounge:
Sage was such anise thyme, I can't wait to cumin again. I sat at the bar with my bf where we split the potato and caramelized onion flatbread and a flight of wines. Both were delicious and the bartender, Jason, was friendly and did a great job. The bread was flat and the wines flew--what more can you want?

I love big chain hotels in some ways -- you know you're getting a decent room, standard service, etc. But I also love B&Bs -- you get to feel like you're really meeting people in the community, you meet other guests, etc. I felt like Sage Inn was really the best of both worlds.

Things I appreciated:
-Warm, genuinely friendly customer service. Dan (house manager?) was always around to chat and help people out with tips on where to eat or what to do.
-Nice, clean, well-appointed rooms without "quirks" -- I am not a fan of the victorian style of many B&Bs, so I loved how the room had simple decorating, white linens, and IKEA furniture
-Great wifi! Was able to stream stuff without an issue
-Good breakfast -- granola, dried fruit, yogurt, milk, fresh fruit, mini muffins, coffee, and tea
-Fantastic hot water. Should be a staple of all hotel rooms, but... sometimes isn't!
-Shampoo, conditioner, and body wash dispensers in the shower. Loved it!
-In-house lounge! Great for when you don't want to (or can't) leave the hotel. They were happy to let me take things up to the room.

We stayed during a blizzard, so I can also add that the staff did a great job of communicating with guests about potential power outages, and that they were lovely about bringing out board games and hanging out when you pretty much couldn't leave. They really were doing all that they could to make it a great experience for guests. Also: I came with a 6-month kid, and they were great about answering my questions (no, they didn't have a crib, but yes, the room would be big enough for a pack-and-play, and yes, they would be happy to move out an extra chair in advance to make sure).

Things I would recommend changing:
-The breakfast was quality, but for those of us who get bored easily, a little variation would be nice from day-to-day. Things like oatmeal, bagels, different fresh fruit, PB&J, etc would be relatively easy to rotate inn to periodically switch it up.
-It was a little tricky to see the rooms on the website -- you could see pictures of some rooms, but it would be nice to know, "OK, here is what the select queen rooms look like," as you're booking.

I cannot even begin to express how wonderful our stay has been at the Sage Inn and Lounge.  This was our first visit to PTown in 20 years and the warm welcome we received from each and every staff member has been remarkable!

The rooms are super clean, tidy and beautifully decorated.  This location sits back off Commercial Street in the middle of all the action.

The Lounge is perfect for any time libations and small bites of goodness.  The owners have done an amazing job with their renovation project and I highly recommend this  venue for any visit to PTown and for any reason... They can accommodate wedding parties, receptions etc.... Very happy with my experience here, can you tell?

Thank you Dan for your conversations and sharing memories of life and travels.  Bethann, John, Corey and Jeff ~ you make Sage memorable.....Cathy, thank you for going above and beyond.....this has been a priceless experience and we look forward to a return visit.

Robin & Lauren
