As we booked over the phone the person was nice and did allow us to max out the room and bring a therm-a-rest for one person. We took the Casco Bay ferry to the island, once we got there the shuttle to the inn was not there. A fisherman told us that they were supposed to be there whenever the ferry got there but they never are. We called the inn and they got there within 15-20 minutes. When we got there I found out that the main entrance was around the hotel and we were using the back door. Where the shuttle pulls up is really a back door and the main door is on a path on the other side. It did not make a good first impression for me as I have been to many hotels. They let us check in at 11:00 AM which was nice. We had the 2 room suite and it really was just a room with a smaller room attached. Everything in the room was white and I mean EVERYTHING except 3 things, a table and 2 closets were the only non-white things. I found it very odd. They did have games in the lobby and that was nice because we were there on a rainy week. It was nice to have turn down service. In the other room the set up was a person on the day bed, me on the pull out trundle bed in the middle and a person on the therm-a-rest. The wheels on trundle bed I was sleeping on were NOT LOCKED and I ended up rolling over the person sleeping on the thermarest 3 times. Everyone was okay. This hotel has the best afternoon cookies. (I had to say that) Our waitress was very quiet and all business and seemed to want us out of the restaurant although there were only 2 other people eating. There were some kids playing a game outside that afternoon and they were out playing at 3 AM! Look out for that if you are in room 302. Overall the inn was nice and I would return. It is a real taste of Maine. There are no TV`S and Wi-Fi only in the lobby. No phones. A good place if you want to spend quality time with your family. There is a golf course and a beach in walking distance. Also, there is a door to the hallway is the smaller room that would not lock.
