my husband booked one of the cottages - the Kestrel, to be exact - which is right on the cliff with a private deck overlooking the water/cove. this particular cottage has been updated, so while the other reviews indicated their rooms were "rustic," that was ABSOLUTELY not our experience. the room was absolutely beautiful - like something out of a magazine ad. it is not a large space - but i found it very cozy...this cottage does not come with a tub, but the standing shower is quite nice...and roomy enough for two :)
the service was wonderful - the dinner at Bridget Dolan's pub was perfect - just the right portions - I had the scallops and shrimp with dried apricots and roasted almond slivers...and the Bridget Dolan beer they have available is actually quite good.
the very friendly owner handed us a bottle of wine when we arrived...and they brought us our breakfast to the cottage in the morning - french toast, coffee, and fruit.
if you are there over the weekend, check out the local museum down the street (open 11-1 i think)...its interesting to see the history of the area - and then go back to your cottage and use the binoculars that the Griffin House will lend you to check out the rock outcroppings and see the remnants of the old business.
all in all, this was a breathtaking and romantic experience.
