Stayed for two nights in an upper level corner room with views of the cove... Blue Heron Room. Had very nice weather which allowed us to use the outer deck, otherwise being confined to the room would have been crowded & there was just myself and hubbie. We are not large or tall people. First impressions was that we had found a great accomodation, but as the two days unfolded there were minor items that added up to a just average stay.
Rooms were small and rather tight for moving around in. Very comfortable queen sized bed and two bedside tables with a tiny desk and a huge chest of drawers which took up an extra-ordinary amt. of space. Bathroom very small with regular tub and shower combined. The room was bright and sunny with two large windows (one being the sliding door to the deck) which felt more spacious. This would not be a comfortable room in rainy or even overcast weather.
The inn itself is very small with 8 rooms. It seemed to be minimally soundproofed and it was easy to overhear conversations in rooms down the hall and next door...and very loud as people left their rooms and came back. The front desk actually closes in the evening and there is no one on the premises to deal with problems. There was also a very bright light left on in the hall outside our room and the light shone into our room all night through the wide spacing between the door and its frame. Between the noise and the light, it was difficult to wind down at night.
There are no ice or vending machines..we were directed to a convenience store to get ice, which cost us $2.50. Not much, but for the prices we were paying, this was annoying.
Views of the cove were interesting as this is an actual fishing village with boats moving in and out frequently. This whole area has been gentrified to appeal to tourists and most of it works. The boardwalk on the other side of the cove is lined with the typical tourist type of shops with trinkets, snacks, and souvenirs. There were several restaurants in the area, but we did not not try these and can't comment. The continental breakfast offered by the inn was ok..had a muffin and coffee the first am, but had to leave at 5:30 AM the next day and breakfast wasn't available until later.
This seemed to be the only newer accomodation around this area, and I don't think they've been open too long, so maybe in a few years and with other competition, the operation of things will smooth out.
