This was a wonderful place to stay on the island. It is fairly close to South Baymouth where the ferry unloads. The rooms are clean and very functional. The owners are very friendly and full of good recommendations. They were so nice that they even mailed my my agenda back to me that I had forgetfully left in the room....

I suppose this would have been better if it hadn't been off season. As it was, everything was closed and it was too cold to swim at the beach which was really only one block away. The room was clean and neat and had a coffee pot, fridge and microwave. Also, if you wanted to cook outdoors, they had a...

I booked a room based on all the other reviews and I was not disappointed. OMG Michelle is really as friendly as everyone says, the room really was as clean as they wrote and the room was sooooo cosy. Would definitely stay there again.

We had to come back to this quaint place! It has been a couple years, and though we loved it before we come back to find the new owners really doing an excellent job at making the stay wonderful. Thank you Steven and Michelle. Until next time :)

Nice property, well done interiors in the rooms, and excellent use of space. We had everything we needed for a spring retreat. The couple operating the property treated us like family, providing assistance and advice. We look forward to staying here again during peak season.

Very friendly people. The rooms were clean and tidy. very adequate and efficient for the price. Since we were only going to sleep and rest of the time go around the island it suited us well. The proprietor was helped us with the restaurant since it was a long weekend - very kind of her.

We were attending our NOHA tournament in Little Current, which was just a short scenic drive down the road. The rooms were extremely clean from top to bottom. The beds were very comfortable which was great so that our players could get a good nights rest before games. The in-room coffee and tea was very convenient for parents and the...

Not much choice for accommodation if you're waiting for the ferry, but this turned out to be a nice little motel. The owner, Michelle, was super friendly, the room was a little small but clean, good and the bed was comfy. There's no breakfast, so you have to find a restaurant down the road.

A very nice smaller motel style accommodation run by a charming couple. The rooms were clean and updated. Just met my expectations. There are only a few motels in this immediate vicinity and I think this is the best. Best to pre-book as the rooms go fast.

Wonderful place to stay for a few days, very warm and accommodating hosts, who seem to genuinely enjoy what they do and the people they meet. The property is clean, attractive, the room I stayed in clean, very comfortable bed, amenities one might find in a boutique hotel rather than an island motel ("fireplace" unit, spa lotions, etc). Michelle was...
