"...We really enjoyed our stay in Elliston! The Anchor House is a little piece of heaven in an absolutely gorgeous location! The house had everything we needed and provided a relaxing atmosphere during our stay. We watched whales from the comfort of our own porch and were within walking distance to the puffins. Fantastic location to many hiking trails and many quaint towns. The community was very welcoming and friendly. Definitely recommend staying at The Anchor House!..."

"... Beautifully restored and appointed saltbox house with incredible views! From our patio we watched whales from 150 away! Anchor House was a peaceful retreat, with an authentic period outport feel. 3 generations in our family all enjoyed the accommodations. We would absolutely stay here again, and recommend to others!..."
