Columbia Inn
Bed, Breakfast, & Bocce


Owned and operated by Tom & Pam Grady, one Yahoo reviewer called Columbia Inn "...the best kept B&B secret of Boston's North Shore." {807 Summer St., Manchester-By-The-Sea, MA 01944 - Phone: 978-526-1000}. Click the photo for more Yahoo reviews.


I can personally recommend this inn, and not only because it features a 10' by 60' stone dust bocce court covered by a trellis and grape vine. During our stay there we played some good bocce and enjoyed the company of some terrific people (as you probably know, bocce lovers tend to be some of the friendliest people on the planet).

The proprietors relax courtside. Tom told a great story about a couple from the Canary Islands (Malcolm and Rosemary) who came to Columbia Inn for a one-night stay. Lawn bowls players who had never experienced bocce, Tom and Pam introduced them to the game and the couple ended up staying two weeks at the Inn. "We couldn't get them off the court" said Grady.


Another view of the court. If you are looking for a place to stay in Massachusetts, away from the hustle and bustle of Boston, check out http://www.columbia-inn.com.


We enjoyed our stay and will certainly schedule a return visit.
