Vacationing in Ribbons at Captain Jack’s Wharf is stepping back in time with present day amenities. Tennessee Williams found “his true love, Kip “ while staying on the Wharf and Tennessee is said to have worked on Street Car and Glass Menagerie in various places including Ribbons.

With a king and full sized bedrooms, and a twin size bed in a sleeping nook, large living/dining area, two baths, fully equipped kitchen, new appliances, Ribbons offers the most unique combination of past and present. The owners have updated Ribbons with new windows and four new skylights that open and close with the touch of a finger. You will enjoy everything Ribbons has to offer beginning with the Commercial Street parade , the bedrooms’ views of roof tops and gardens, the moon and stars over your king bed. Take your morning coffee and walk 10 steps from your door onto the wharf for spectacular sunrises over Long Point or take your cocktail to enjoy the ever-changing breathtaking skies at sunset. Sit on the wharf meeting new and old friends, or simply read the latest novel, or lean against a piling and watch the fish and horseshoe crabs pass below you. In addition to Ribbons itself you’ll have the charming West End for walking and you’ll have all the Wharf amenities: WiFi, bonus private outdoor shower, beautiful flowers, comfortable outdoor furniture, association stairs to the beach, a dingy dock to drop off or pick up friends by sea, and the adjacent beach.

Ribbons was built originally as an icehouse in 1885 and has a long captivating history, Tennessee Williams being just a part.

And, if this isn’t enough you can bring your well-behaved pooch and walk the tidal flats at low tide. It really doesn’t get better!
