We were looking for a place to get away for a few days, and decided to stay at the Inn. We were not disappointed. We were greeted by one of the staff who was friendly and charming, and we were shown to our room which was clean and comfortable. Outside our door were chairs on the porch with a view filled with flowers, and the harbor. The location is just a minute or two walk to the wharf's, restaurants, and shopping area.
We met our hostess (Inn Keeper) at breakfast the next morning.She is most charming, and panders to her guests. The breakfasts were outstanding, and we looked forward to them each morning. There is a large dining room where guest could sit to eat their meal as well as tables on the porch which are perfect to enjoy the outdoors as well as your breakfast.
Breakfast is a great place to meet and interact with the other guests. Sharing stories and information. We had a great group and made new friends.
There are chairs near the water as well as on a dock which are perfect for watching the activity on the water, or reading a book or paper, or all three.
Our visit was most enjoyable, and it seemed like we were saying good bye to family instead of checking out.
We may try to make this an annual event. It is a beautiful area, and even more beautiful Inn.
