The first was that my husband used to stay there as a child and second they had just done renovations.... More

Our family rents a cottage there for a week each year. The location is great and for a family looking for a place to stay and play, it's nice. The cottages show some wear and tear but are a nice getaway with full kitchens. Beds are a bit small for larger guests but decent overall. The hotel rooms are older... More

I am currently staying at the Sea Latch... Been coming here for over 25 years... They added a new building in the middle of their property that books for $325 per night in season that is way too much for families. They also lost many of their parking spaces and they do not have room assigned parking so you could... More
