We loved our two night stay here. We could easily visit sites nearby or sit, relax and enjoy, the view from our patio. Our room was spacious with a comfortable king-sized bed, and sofa area. A choice of breakfast items were selected at check-in and brought to our room each morning. Only room for improvement was that their wi-fi was “slow”.

This was our first stay at this particular hotel and we could not be more pleased! The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. The view was incredible and all the staff so helpful and friendly. The restaurant had limited outdoor seating, however room service was available. We ate at the restaurant one evening and it was excellent. Room service meals were packed thoughtfully and everything was delicious. All deliveries were no-contact. Heritage House used to be our go-to, but that property has gone badly downhill. This is our new favorite!

Room Tip: We like the room with the gas fireplace as it is easy to control the temperature.

This is a tough one to review under the Covid circumstances. If it is just about the inn that's one thing, if the restaurant is included that's another. This is about the room. My wife and I were in cabin 20 for two nights. The price you pay here is for the location which is great, otherwise it is overpriced, although you do get a lot of square footage in the bathroom area and there is a well stocked wood burning fireplace. Where they fall short is they don't update their website. There was no Covid 19 update indicating the restaurant was closed, as in no take out including the "included breakfast", so breakfast turned out to be a checklist you fill out that was 3 kinds of juice, granola with 4 milk/yogurt options, hard boiled eggs, toast and/or the muffin of the day and butter, jam and/or honey. Apparently you could indicate as many as you wanted. They delivered every 15 minutes to ONE unit, so order early if timing is important. Anything you would expect to be warm/hot was not. Also, turns out, the website pictures have not been updated in years. When I thought my 93 year old mother would be coming and was looking for a unit with a shower she could easily access, turned out one of the duplex units had burned down several years ago and been rebuilt so it would have worked, but the pictures had not been updated! Really! On the plus side, the unit had a wood burning fireplace which was set up on our arrival and we enjoyed the first evening. There was extra wood, kindling, matches and newspaper provided which we used our second evening. Also used it our departure morning to warm the cold butter on the cold toast. Nice ambiance each time. (We did get lucky. When we checked in the front desk person told us the restaurant was closed. Poking around we discovered the day we checked in was the first day since the Covid shutdown began the restaurant was opening for outside seating. We had a 5 star meal. But that is a different review. Hard to believe they don't tell the person at the front desk the restaurant is opening.) Also, be aware there is a foghorn on a coastal buoy that can be heard in the unit, although we did not find it disturbing. Stay here again???

Stayed 3 nights, overlooking the river and ocean. Views were amazing as usual. The staff have taken precautions for Covid. Breakfast is delivered to the room. Highly recommend this hotel. Everyone was masked.

As mentioned in other reviews, the Inn is remotely located, which makes it a relaxing escape. The people that helped us, from front office to cleaning staff, were very friendly and accommodating. We stayed in #9, having picked this based on the furniture and room set up. We quickly discovered that the on line room picture did not match the actual room. The chairs were different, easily 30 years dated and dirty. When the room is closed for more than 6 hours, the smell is musty and sour. The deck and chairs are very enjoyable, but maybe trim the hedge right in front that blocks the ocean view. We would stay here again, but probably pick a different room, and hope it matches the picture.
