          The Hotel is not for everyone-you got to be a minialist and like lots of wood-floors, walls celing fans, breeze coming in through the windows, rockers on the veranda, etc. I really love the breezes slowly blowing the floor lengh curtins across the hallway. Just...More

          This Hotel is a must see! Very, very quaint and in its original form. It has that incredible smell that you smelled as a child when you stayed , as we say, "down the shore" back in the 60's. The Fried Chicken is really good...More

          We just booked for 7/14-7/16. A queen room. We would like to have a room with access to the balcony on second floor please. Also away from stairs with tv if possible. Hopefully it has a larger bathroom we are big people. Is there parking available on premises. Beach chairs? Bikes? Thank you and can't wait to hear back from you. Michele & Mark
