Lavender Inn was chosen for our 2-day family group gathering, based on TA reviews and it did not disappoint. Wonderful amenities for such a small scale operation...full breakfast selections, wine &cheese, cookies, and complementary bubbly in the fridge. Front desk personnel were all super helpful with room assignment rearrangements, late check-ins, and complicated checkouts. Our people stayed in a variety of rooms, and all were pleased with their comfort, decor and condition. We agree this place is a fine value...location, amenities and attitude. We used our Suite 2 as a hospitality room because it has a really nice fully equipped kitchen plus direct access to a quasi private back patio with table and chairs. Cold wet weather prevented us from enjoying the pool and bikes, so we'd like to come back for that as well...and, it's just such a great convenience to be within walking distance of the beach and wharf. And for car-free travelers, it's just a short walk from the Amtrak station. Nearby restaurants...Brewhouse has great grub and ambiance, Rudy's Mexican restaurant is passable, and there's the famous Sambos if one wants more than one breakfast.
