Our inn keeper, Chris and his assistant Isiah were gracious, entertaining and helpful with all our needs.
Breakfast was relaxing and fun with other inn guests. The food was wonderful. Tasty treats each day fresh from the oven. The dining experience is part of the special atmosphere in a B and B. We've been going to this Inn for many years and took our young Brazilians friends with us this time. They had a great time.
Due to the usual weather the view room didn't extend a view to the ocean on this trip, but the ambiance of the inn grounds was well worth a look. Birds and deer fed in the lovely garden and there's a goat to visit nearby.
Any number of novels could start with the heavy fog that greeted our arrival the first evening. The mossy fence pickets and soothing water feature added to the charm.
The rooms are aging and comfortable, ours by the garden was quite large. If plastic or modern is your thing this isn't the place for you. All have gas stoves for a quick touch of heat and ambiance. The complementary bottle of wine in from a local winery.
The game room has lots of information, games and a telescope. The other common areas boast a piano and guitar for your use snacks and port for refreshment. All common areas have great windows onto the garden, and on a clear day great views out to the sea beyond.
