I stayed at one of the Inn separate lodigng locations, Reefnetter, with another couple I knew. The house and location were fantastic....just a short distance from the main Inn. However, no change of linen was tacky and inexcusable for the prices charged. All else was more than adequate, i.e. space, rooms, wi-fi and a beautiful memorable view.
The Restaurant was fantastic with exquisite preparation, beautiful presentation and flavors that defy description. This is a destination or any foodie and was well worth the price. The service was equally great with the actual chef giving descriptions. Chef Blaine Wetzel is worth the visit. Unfortunately, the wine selection and service leaves much to be desired. With a little effort on the part of managment, this place could be a destination without equal in the Northwest.
Also, breakfast is served in a small restaurant close to the Ferry Dock. It is charming, and has excellent food. The service was fantastic and we were well supplied with coffee!
