We booked the Rose Farm Inn for our Aug 2010 stay after a recommendation from a friend, and we were not disappointed. We were very happy to be staying away from the hustle and bustle of town and the ferries- and while it was a walk to town, it is a very pretty walk! At night it is very quiet, and you can just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. We rented bikes at the place adjacent to the Inn which was definitely the way to get around. The continental breakfast was adequate and a nice touch- it was nice to just wake up and walk to breakfast, and then start our day. We took a taxi to the Inn from the ferry, but ended up walking with our bags to town when we left. Very easy. The Spring House and the Atlantic Inn are right next door and also beautiful. Be warned - no air conditioned - but great sea breezes. No air conditioning is just part of the BI charm. You are not going to BI to spend time in your room! Hoping to get back this summer and would not hesitate to stay again.
