The inn was lovely and the receptionist helpful, but we think that we should have been told some things before our stay. Construction was going on in the hotel from 8 am and the restaurant was closed. Also, in the off season almost NOTHING is open on Tues. Our dinner was limited to a local pizzeria if we didn't want to take the ferry. Ditto for breakfast. Also, we should have listened to the review that said to avoid room 6--the bed was awful! Plus, since the place was almost empty, why put a family directly next to us?
