We stayed here for 2 nights in The View suite, and loved it. It was decorated beautifully, and the floor-to-ceiling windows provided us with great views - the room is certainly aptly named! The View has access to 3 outdoor decking areas, one of which has a bbq, which was actually one of our highlights! Harold and Marianne were so... More

Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 older teens) feel so, so lucky to have found this absolute gem of a property. The decor is so beautiful and polished. As you step through the door and look at the view, it takes your breath away. The views through the walls of windows are simply stunning. We spent many hours... More

"Amazing" is such an overused word these days but in this case, I feel justified. I'm so thankful I stumbled across this paradise. My mom, son & I had the pleasure of spending 3 nights in "the view" suite. My son has been talking about "Mr. Harold" ever since, one of our wonderful hosts. He and Marianne were caring (when...

This was our first stop on a 3 week trip to Canada from Sydney, Australia. Definitely a peaceful and friendly place to get over a doozy of a jet lag. The owners are lovely, the room very well thought out and probably more comfortable than our apartment at home! We stayed in the newest room, the View Suite. Canoes available... More

After staying at several locations around the world you tend to accept the website photos are staged to look better than the usual aging reality provides. HOWEVER! this property by far exceeds any expectation you may have. Amazing views of the estuary, eagles, dear, humming birds etc directly outside of the floor to ceiling windows, if this was not enough... More

My wife and I had a relaxing three day stay here. The setting is very pretty, and the owners have put a lot of effort into the landscaping of the property, which has fresh water ponds, all sorts of plants, as well as lazy rivulets to the ocean. You'll see wildlife -- we saw blue heron, quail, and many redwing... More

Not to sound like a braggart, but I have stayed in some of the most beautiful hotels in the world and "Inn The Estuarty" is by far one of the best. We had a lot of choices on the island, and narrowed it down to the Inn, and upon arrival we were completely blown away. The owners Howard & Marianne... More

If you ever get the opportunity to stay here I'd jump on it. It's magnificent, and like no other place. You literally feel like you're right in the marshland but in the comfort of an ultra modern home. The landscape is breath taking. I must've seen half a dozen different types of birds during breakfast alone. Hosts, Marianne and Harold,... More

This is the most memorable place we've ever stayed - and we travel a lot. Our room was beautifully and thoughtfully furnished - right outside our glass door and wall of windows was a pond and view of the bay. Our first afternoon we just sat on the patio and watched the wind surfers in the bay. Living room area,... More
