We checked in right away no issues which was great. Ocean view room was a bit small. Complimentary breakfast was a good way to start your day! Overall I would definitely book a room with Mac Rae again!More

Our family hotel was built by my great-grandfather in 1920. The rooms are typical of the island from that time period and are smaller than modern hotel rooms. I am glad that your breakfast was a good start to your day. Please contact us once...More

Our rooms are exactly like the photos on our website. We do have hot water and have painted the rooms numerous times since the 70s. Don't be silly. Thank you for complimenting my staff. They do a great job. Karen Biery 4th generation "Mac Rae"...More

We are located directly on the beach. Our building covers our entire property so we do not have a pool.
