One recent Sunday in March found us enjoying the Spring special ($99) for a charming room at the Inn. The main floor has lovely fireplaces, patios, a basic continental breakfast, a bar, and unusual English grounds and gardens. The location affords quick trips into the city, or a short stroll to some gorgeous oceanfront parks. Our room had an ocean view, very comfortable bed, windows that let in the sound of the gulls and the smell of the sea in the morning, and above the bed there was a skylight to star gaze. The breakfast was very basic but can't complain for the price. The Inn itself looks like an old mansion, some buildings had thatched roofs, and the outdoor space was kind of wild in late winter. One must be able to manage stairs, and narrow passageways, and wish to peer in nooks and crannies to spot the many unusual architectural aspects hiding around many of the corners. It would be a great spot for a mystery party. On the Sunday night the doors were closed early and no staff appeared to be on site. It was a bit dark coming in the back way at night, it would have been helpful to have a flashlight to navigate the path or have better than just solar lighting in the winter. We enjoyed the unique and original character for a relaxing overnight.
