Inn keeper is accommodating and very knowledgeable about the area. Romantic setting; hubbie and I took moonlit walk on the beach. Small beach right across the street and a short walk from the clean,... More

My wife and I stayed here because we had a wedding in the area. The Inn is beautiful and the location – nestled right on a lovely bay – couldn't be better. The owner, Cheryl, went above and beyond the call of duty in making us feel at home. We accidentally left some clothes behind, and she generously boxed them... More

We found this place by accident and now we try and come back every 4th of July and hopefully more often in the future! Very nice, clean rooms with good showers. Short walk to a free, very clean beach where the water is very warm and inviting! At least 4 excellent restaurants within walking distance make the stay more enjoyable.... More

Right next to the beach, this newly renovated hotel is in the perfect location. The rooms have been designed with clean, simple decor which we loved. Plenty space to put away clothing and a desk/dressing table for all our gadgets and papers. Great kitchenette and fridge, this area was more than adequate for our needs. Opposite the beach and the...

Stayed for one night for a wedding up the street. Great location for shops, places to eat, and bay and park across the street. Our room was just redone and in the front overlooking the bay. Room 206.....spacious and clean. Ceiling fan and AC was great. Shower big and clean. I don't think I would have enjoyed my stay as... More

I loved this place. Crisp clean linens and spa like colors were very soothing. The bedroom had a small kitchenette and a newly renovated bathroom. It also had a beautiful view of the bay and beach and was within easy walking distance to restaurants and shops. Cheryl, the innkeeper, was warm and friendly and provided me with good suggestions for... More

I came here recently for a business retreat. I didn't stay over night, so I only saw the beach house. The retreat started in the "conference room" of the house, which is the renovated garage on the bottom floor. Cheryl was participating in the retreat and she sensed that people needed more space as we started to work so she... More

The view of the bay is delightful. In mid-September the room was very warm. No heating control. What looked like a dehumidifier was actually a free-standing AC, but there was no control for it and we didn't figure that out until halfway thru our stay. It didn't help much. This isn't really a B&B, as coffee and a little wrapped... More
