very nice inn! Romantic room and lovely grounds! The attention to detail was appreciated. Continental breakfast was great and the coffee was excellent. The surrounding scenery was lovely. Great place to pass through, as it is quite remote and not a lot of local activities.

We expected a slightly more 'boutique' place, but glad it wasn't. Run by a nice, helpful couple, this inn is authentic, clean, with fresh sea air and heartening views on the cove, fishing boats and wharf. It has a tucked-away, coastal ambience. Room was comfy, balcony nice, breakfast okay, wifi worked, and the general 'feel' of it was very good.

We stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. We were in the romantic king room with electric fireplace and Jacuzzi tub with partial ocean view. We really liked our room, it had an interesting look and it did not feel like just another hotel room. The partial ocean view was really nice, the ocean was pretty calm so we faintly heard... More

Great location on a bluff overlooking a working wharf/harbor. Room had been recently renovated, with tasteful décor. One complaint.....the mattress was very soft and uncomfortable, resulting in a 3 day backache after one night's sleep. Outside of the inn needs updating. Parking is limited but adequate.

Looking forward to your return and in making you as comfortable as possible. In the... More

Deborah has to be the nicest innkeeper we have ever met. She was so pleasant, kind, and helpful. She provided information about where to eat and what to see. She gave us a coupon for $10 per person free play at a local casino and a bottle of wine for my birthday. She was always smiling and seemed genuinely glad... More

Quiet and cozy. Bed was comfy and the staff very nice. I would recommend to any couple wanting to get away for a day or two. Parking lot is pretty narrow and steep, but that just adds to the charm. Would be nice if there was a hot tub on site.

We stayed in one of the Lookout rooms and it was very nice. From the private balcony, you are looking right out over the tiny wharf below and westward for the sunsets. There are couple of restaurants right at the bottom of the hill. A nice, quiet location.

The location right on the water is great, the grounds are well kept, good coffee in the room and the included breakfast was quite good. Being able to walk down the hill to the Chowder House was a definite plus. While our standard courtyard view, shower only, room was good sized and tidy it was definitely not worth $100+ per... More
