Aside from the location, the sunrise and sunsets, the beach, what brings us back each time is the warm and genuine welcome. AnnMarie, Patti, Ed, and Anthony run the Inn as it were... More

Ed and AnnMarie are two... More

Had a nice visit with other guests and owners at a campfire at night. Definitely would recommend this place to anyone looking for... More
