This was our 2nd annual anniversary weekend spent at the Inn. The location is wonderful as Shem Creek offers plenty to do within walking distance. We highly recommend reserving your room on the top floor facing the creek. Sitting on the balcony offers a spectacular view of the creek, dolphins and all of the boat activity. The rooms offer plenty... More

My boyfriend and I came to stay in the middle of the week. I had booked online for a hotel with a waterfront view. This is better than I hoped. Our patio looked out on the creek. Also there were a bunch of restaurants right beside it and on the water
