Great place to cool down from work and daily headaches. The hotel is a b&b establishment with a great restaurant. Everybody at the front desk were very helpful. I little far away from the city if you stay for more than a weekend . Overall you will enjoy nature and peace . Don't come in winter :)))))

A fabulous place to get away for a few days. Top service, beautiful rooms, lots of amenities .. We felt we were part of an artists picture looking at the spectacular scenery on both the bay and ocean side.we can't wait to come again next year!

Service very poor, many mistakes on the order. Very hotel restaurant like experience with no smiles or interest in what the staff is serving. The lounge chairs are great to sit on after eating, but next time I will bring my own cappy from downtown and skip the food. Dated too…..

Coffee and freshly baked pastries are provided free from 7 and we took back to our deck to start the day. Cheese and port at 4 is a nice touch. The views from the front lawn are fabulous... More

We had dinner on the patio on a cool rainy night. The heaters kept the patio at a very comfortable temperature but I would recommend the indoor dining room if celebrating an occasion.

The drink outside at the sunset is just unforgettable moment. The cuisine is sophisticated and the best dish is the lobster.

Visit the Wauwinet just to see the fall arrangements they have in the front of the building. If you are not staying there.. stop in for a drink , cozy bar and welcoming host Eric love to see people enjoy the property and the facilities.
