We and another couple stayed at Dolphins Resort in May. It was our third time there, the second in Cabin # 1. We prefer that cabin for its privacy and the great view from the deck. About our only complaint is that the lighting in the cabin is very dim, even in the kitchen which made for a hard time... More

We had dinner at Dolphins Restaurant-but didn't stay at the resort. The food was good and the service likewise. The pork was a bit dry and my friends black cod was good but not outstanding. The location is special and we watched a cruise ship sail by. Overall a pretty decent dining experience-but nothing outstanding

This lodge is a great place! Recently visited with my boys on a fishing trip and we had a great time! Each accommodation is a separate cabin varying in size. We where a group of 4 and stayed in cabin 1 which was great. Very private, ocean front, just the right size. Accommodations are simple (this is after all a... More

Just a great stay! Amazing food, super service and spectacular view. We hosted my husband's 40th birthday and have to say the time spent exceeded my expectations. Wished we had known about this spot for my wedding.

This was our second visit to Dolphins Resort. The restaurant is small and delightful. Service, quality, value is superb. You will not be disappointed. PLUS If looking for an absolutely rest full place to lay your head down this is the place you need to find. Quiet. Peaceful. Relaxing. Says it all. A real gem to stay at..

hidden little gem! Rented the Beach front Cottage - PERFECT for a romantic get-away. The property itself has a few other rustic cabins, and they all seem fine - but NONE compare to the location of their beach front cabin!

I stayed at Dolphins in early April, with my husband and parents. We did not have a reservation, but the resort staff could not have been more accommodating. They showed us two cabins to choose from. We stayed in cabin 7, and were impressed with how spotlessly clean it was. Comfortable beds, lots of wood for the fire, excellent water... More

Quaint property with rustic cabins (log walls, knotty pine ceilings, wood grained flooring). Place was spotless and well equipped. We had cabin seven which had four separate rooms with a gaggle of beds. The bedding was great as were the beds. Place had three bathrooms. Great price for what we got as it included a breakfast at the Anglers restaurant.... More
