Wonderful location across the lane from a peaceful cove & bay. Very nice gardens with a fish pond & waterfall. Amazing home cooked breakfast, one of the best we've had in the USA! Breakfast on the sunny verandah overlooking the fish and bay was such an experience. 1st class inn.

The inn is perched across the street from a quiet little rocky cove with pretty views of the ocean. There is a nice water feature with a fish pond and waterfall on the grounds, and a wrap around porch to also enjoy the views or eat your breakfast.

My wife and I returned to this delightful inn for a second time last week. Chris and Beth are excellent hosts who go out of their way to be helpful to their guests. e.g. My wife and I, who are in our 80's, were originally booked in a 3d floor room because nothing else was available.
