This inn was such a lovely surprise. The first good omen was talking by phone with Colin the proprietor who is warm, relaxed and helpful. The second one was when Colin picked us up at the airport in his vintage London taxi cab. The inn is a newly restored building that extends out over the water. We stayed in the Chief Takush "water queen" room and woke each morning and ended each day with a full 180 degree ocean vista. Spectacular. The deck outside our room had big comfy chairs to sit and read and watch the sun go down. The room furnishings have creative driftwood legs and the beds and linens, kitchen and bathroom are all fresh as a daisy. Our room had good self-controlled heating which we used in the cool mornings.

The room had a small kitchen and was stocked with coffee and tea to start the day. The Siene Boat Inn is a real find and we will definitely be back.
