I rated the Rose Farm Inn three stars namely because of its location. The Inn is slightly off the beaten path (far enough from the ferry to be in a quiet part of town, but still an easy bike ride or walk to everything). My fiance and I stayed in a room at the Captain Rose House that had a back patio overlooking a meadow. It was the perfect setting to sip some rosé and relax prior to dinner after a hot day at the beach. The reason it is not a four or five star stay is because the rooms were definitely less than perfect. They were a bit outdated and actually a little dark and dreary. Breakfast in the morning was fine but nothing spectacular.
If you are mainly looking for a quiet and relaxed setting, this may be a good stay for you, as you will certainly get that here. For the price, however, I would be expecting just a little something more.
