We stayed in Clarke, which is one of two bedroom suites (the other is Barnes) in the Reefnetter House. Picture a larch 3-bedroom beach house where the two upstairs bedrooms that are for rent have been converted into little bedroom suites.
Reefnetter is an easy 15 minute drive from the Willows Inn main property. Across a small two-lane road is a rocky beach. Very East Coast beach feeling.
The Reefnetter feels like an nice beach house. Comfortable, but not very upscale (as is true for most beach houses). It feels like families over the years have spent a lot of time running through the house. We had the whole house to ourselves during our stay, but how you feel about the common area will probably depend on the guest staying in Barnes.
Internet out; dishwasher out during our stay.
