Item Description

The Craignair Inn and Restaurant

Set on a granite ledge rising from the sea and surrounded by flower gardens, Craignair was built in 1928 to house workers from the nearby quarries. Little has changed here since the turn of the century, and you can still feel the mood of a once lively and active working town. The union hall still stands, as well as the old general store and post office. The chapel, where the stonecutters and their families once worshipped, is now an annex to the inn. Evidence of the quarry-workers' time is also portrayed in the beautiful granite causeway that stretches across the water to Clark island, where a great quarry was once the center of this picturesque village. Clark island granite was used in the construction of the central park bridges and gate houses, and in the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, both in New York City, and the Library of Congress in Washington, just to name a few.

Just a three and a half hour drive from Boston!
