Like anyone reading these reviews, I was very skeptical at first. After all, how many online reviews can you truly trust these days? Rest assured, I am not a robot or affiliated with the Inn. Anyways, I was nervous to drop a lot of money (more than I had ever for a hotel room) on our first bed and breakfast.... More

We had a great time at The Inn. The food was plentiful to say the least. It was also fun to be invited to the family farm - wish we had the chance to check it out. It's an easy walk to downtown. Our back room had a tiny shower but the water temp and pressure were great. We would... More

We stayed at The Inn one night with our eight and ten year old. I was a little nervous since this was their first B&B. We were greeted at the door and had such a warm welcome!! If you are leaving early on the boat they have a 7am breakfast otherwise at 9 am there is a breakfast that you... More

We came straight from the ferry, which I would think happens all the time. A young woman greeted us, pretty space and vague. Ends up our room was the one on the first floor. DO NOT STAY IN THAT ROOM. You are basically in a walled off part of the parlor. No privacy at all. Hear everything happening. As my... More

I ran across this B&B while looking for a place for my wife and I to stay on the way back home after visiting friends further north, and we had a great experience! Even though it was just the two of us, we stayed upstairs in the loft, which would be great for a larger group as well! There was... More

Dear Nate S. Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking the time to write a review! We are so proud of that room you stayed in, The Studio (Loft) Suite, we spent over $25,000 on that room this past winter putting in a complete new set of stairs and a new air-conditioning system. We do indeed... More

We loved our stay here!!! The hosts are very friendly and personable, the rooms are beautiful and they serve an incredible breakfast! We would stay here again in a heartbeat. The room on the top floor is very unique and can accommodate a lot of people. Our family loved it! This was a highlight of our vacation!!!

We spent three nights here over Memorial Day weekend. The hosts were extraordinarily friendly; the breakfasts were gourmet and absolutely delicious. The location is fine -- just five blocks from city center and another couple of blocks to the beach. The home is old, so there are a few issues here and there, e.g., the bathroom facilities are not very... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night. We were warmly welcomed by the innkeeper, Ola. We had a room on the first floor and thought it was pretty nice. The bed and bath weren't bad. The claw-foot tub in our room would have been better for a bath, but we used it as a shower, which was a... More

I have seen some of the reviews on here and they surprise me. This is a beautiful old house and if you want modern looks and amenities you should go to a hotel. The caretakers were so friendly and the breakfast was outstanding. The house is old and creepy and wonderful. I loved every cracked paint and aged smell. It... More

This was everything my wife and I were looking for in a bed and breakfast. A historical classic with polite and intelligent staff. The location was great and the food was beyond anything I have had. I have no complaints at all. If you're into having to have everything perfect (e.g. no cracks in the walls or ceilings or no... More
