Enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing stay in early November. The location is terrific - you can easily spend a few hours in nearby Sag Harbor or Greenport for lunch/shopping before getting on the ferry to Shelter Island.
The woman at the front desk was incredibly friendly and helpful from check in to check out - answering questions about dinner reservations, bikes, fresh pastries and more in between.
We had a nice dinner at the restaurant - the service was attentive and friendly - and enjoyed an excellent cappuccino on the front porch with the Sunday papers.
We had plenty of room on the second floor and was pleasantly surprised by the abundant natural light. Very comfortable bed.
We found an excellent deal on Jet Setter, but in season rates are high if competitive with other places on Long Island.
