    The Waiwinet was a first class hotel. It is charming with the best of service. Very relaxing! Great where it is located if you want peace and quiet. Steps from the beach where we took our jeeps and went to the lighthouse!

    No, dogs are not allowed at this property. Their sister property, "The Cottages & Lofts at the Boat Basin" does permit pets. Great place for them too - very welcoming with special treats for your extended family.
