In 1993, The Sullivan House was lovingly restored by Ellen Ball O’Brien whose grandfather, Simon Ray Ball, built the house in 1904.  The Sullivan House continues as a family business. The Sullivan House commands unsurpassed views of the Atlantic Ocean and Great Salt Pond. Each room features an ocean view, four-poster bed, and private bath. Private, yet walking-distance to the beach and town.
