The good: This is a wonderful location. The clean park and waterfront are steps across the quiet street. The Mac is at the left and the Island the right. The grounds are immaculate and pleasant to relax, whether to use their free wifi, to gaze across the water, or read. The place has a feel of a B&B, unique and friendly. Room service continental breakfast a nice touch, though unremarkable fare. Allowed to check in early, gather key upon our evening return, selling us discounted ferry tickets and calling us a ride in a snap-very helpful.
The bad: The queen bed was just 4 to 6 inches of foam over a standard boxspring. I thought there was a rock at the center of my back, and my husband left with sore hips and buttock after two nights. I was unable to use shower/tub 1st day when I found body hair all over the tub. Yuck. Washed tub with shampoo and got up nerve to use shower the next day. We will not be back. Too bad, cute place. Had booked based on Tripadvisor recommendation.
