It was my bday weekend and my boyfriend and I wanted to do a weekend away. More specifically, we wanted to find a place that was close to our NYC home where we could take our dog that would be our "home away from home". We found it. Ruth & Skip were absolutely amazing. They are absolutely friendly without being overbearing. The Inn is just steps away from the water and the kayaks are right there. Guests also have complete access to their bikes. Both were so much fun.
We stayed in the Sea Breeze suite the first 3 nights and it was really nice. It was extremely comfortable. The bedroom and sitting room are separate from each other and the shower in the bathroom has amazing water flow.
We decided to stay an additional day last minute and moved to the Lighthouse suite. Fully equipped kitchen, beautiful private roof deck as well as side deck; this suite was 10x better than our Manhattan apt.
All of this plus Ruth's bfast made us not too happy to come home. Before we left, we made sure to book a few more weekends next year so we know we will have something to look forward to.
Oh, and I didn't mention that you will find soda, juice, water and snacks fully supplied in your room!! With some sherry.
My boyfriend and I plus our dog absolutely recommend Seagull Inn.
