We had stayed here a few years ago and chose to return--we were, at our request, given the same room in the secondary building. There were two changes we did note--the afternoon wine and cheese social did not come with unlimited glasses of wine this time--each additional glass is $5--BUT, the glass of wine you are given is quite plentiful. You also have to wait to be served--last time we did help ourselves. The inn was bustling and very busy this stay(thanks to all of us writing nice reviews, I imagine) so the crackers, cheese and fruit disappeared quickly and needed to be replenished just a little quicker--but--4 PM is a busy time for check-ins so the desk person is quite busy trying to accomplish everything. The second change was definitely a positive one--involving the breakfast. One can personally grab a breakfast of fresh fruit, cereal and the usual carbohydrate fare--toast, muffins and such(try the yummy apple butter and apricot jam). OR, one can have the chef prepare the specialty of the day (there were usually two) or eggs any way you want them. That was a positive change from our previous trip when the chef only offered one breakfast specialty. Of course, the "eggs any way" are cooked after you order, and with a full inn and only one chef, this is not a breakfast for those in a hurry. We experienced the cooking of two different chefs--they alternate days, and both do a great job! One guest actually ordered poached eggs (not too many people do that these days) and I believe I heard her say they were very good. We love room 17 in the secondary building, usually the porch affords a nice view of the water just a few blocks away---but our stay overlapped a very foggy, misty week--not our innkeeper's fault!
Again, the inn was full just about every night so the parking lot gets a little tight--I believe you can park overnight on the street. We managed a spot in the lot each night. Oh, the cookies---again, because of the number of guests, the cookies seemed to run out each night--not sure if they were refilled after i went to grab a couple for each person in my family each night. Try the chamomile tea--the brand they use is very nice,
If the parlor gets too full for the afternoon social, take your wine out on the front porch and watc...
