The Oceanic Hotel is the centerpiece of Star Island, one of nine Isles of Shoals about seven miles off the coast of New Hampshire. It was built in the 1800s and became a haven for artists and other creative thinkers. For the last century, it has been owned by a nonprofit organization. It is kept much the same way that it was 100 years ago. It is not a place to go and sit by the pool and sip Mai-Tais and get massages. It is used for conferences and personal retreats. Meals are served family style in a central dining room. While all the rooms have electricity, not all have outlets. Take a step back in time and enjoy.
