We have stay here before and will come back again. Lovely property, friendly staff, spacious rooms, ocean view through the trees, and away from the hustle and bustle of town but still within walking distance. We had a wonderful time.

Staff are great. Breakfast is really nice. The room let me down. It needed renovation. For the price we paid and the fact we didn't pay for just any old room I was disappointed. The bathroom looked dirty.

Love the location, property was clean, friendly staff. Rooms need to be upgraded/updated... We felt the room we stayed in was too small, especially the bathroom. We have been here twice before, but the Terrace seems to be showing it's age a little.

Love it when rates are good - very nice staff, love the outdoor fireplace and proximity to beach! Great sitting areas and love the décor in the main lobby. Bathrooms in some rooms need to be updated but usually good deal for the rate when under $200. Nice continental breakfast in AM. The 2 larger decorator suites are great for... More

The property was clean, picturesque, and close to the beach. Rooms need to be updated, however. Lobby and common grounds were fantastic. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a fantastic time!

Wife and I have stayed here for several years in a row during "car week" in August. I understand the concept of supply and demand, but it's still stings when you have to pay so much with a min. 4 night stay.

Lovely grounds and shared spaces, very close to the beach and a short 10 minute walk into town. Very helpful staff and good selection of breakfast. The room we had looked like it needed an upgrade and the sofa bed was very uncomfortable so we didn't use it.

Friendly reception both check in and check out. Rooms were nicely decorated. Reception area was cozy and there were outdoor spaces where you can sit and relax. The beach is a block away and the Inn can provide beach towels and chairs which was great. In the mornings, they serve light breakfast and in the afternoons, cookies, coffee or tea.... More
