For several years I looked somewhat longingly at this location, but always felt it was more than we could afford. However,a gift of money from our children made it possible last fall. We were impressed with the beauty of the area and the meals were spectacular. Unfortunately, a number of little things left us with a less than favourable,warm impression.... More

Our king bed was comfy (actually 2 twins put together to make up a king), although I would have preferred down pillows and a duvet to the puffy... More

We stayed as a couple and really enjoyed our visit here. The location is lovely and the staff are great. The property is nice and goes for a classic rustic, olde world vibe, with plenty of wood, pictures and books. The site has a lot of space, fitting in a beach, pier, trail, putting green, pool. The restaurant has scenic... More

Inga and her staff/ family were amazing! I have been planning this conference with Westwind since January. Inga went out of her way to... More

We found the inn by accident while driving in the area. The young lady, Abagail, at reception went all out to make us feel welcome and contacted her manager re:price. Her enthusiasm made it hard for us to say no so we signed in for one night. We have never been treated so well. The dining staff of Karen, Maegan... More
