We had a very nice stay at the Inn. Given that it was the New Year weekend we were fortunate to get accommodation. We had Lookout Room #1, which was quiet and warm. Our next door neighbors were quiet - we could hear them a little but not too intrusive. The bathroom is small and cold unless you leave the sliding door open to the bedroom to heat up. The windows have rollblinds as curtains, which keeps out some light at nighttime, but unfortunately the Inn signpost illumination lights can be a problem being turned on all night - some light sneeks into the bedroom and can keep sensitive sleepers awake. Would recommend better lightproof blinds/curtains.
The bed and pillows are very comfortable. The breakfast is delicious, comprising organically grown fruits, yogurt, and a freshly baked muffin/scone or similar, all delivered to your room at a time you select.
As we visited in Dec/Jan the town was surprisingly quiet for New Year. Several of the hotels/restaurants/businesses close in January for a few weeks or more. Be aware of this - perhaps you may prefer the peace and quiet. Also, the roads in the area are very twisty - take them slowly and your car-sickness will be minimized.
We would happily return to this Inn - the owners are very helpful and offering of local information and tips. The coastline is unforgettable and the forests/wineries and local artists are excellent.
