Agree with others in terms of the Inn overall, so will focus on our room, the Coveside suite. It has two open floors. The upper is the bedroom with full bath (although there is no door, it is visually separated) and the lower contains the kitchen, living area and 1/2 bath (with a fold-out sofa). It is one of the most spacious "rooms" I have had at a B&B. The suite is at the far end of the building, so completely private, with large windows looking across a lawn through birches to the cove. We were there on a cold weekend, but a gas stove heated the space nicely. Furnishings are simple, but detailing of woodwork is extensive, making it an attractive space. It was lovely for our family of four (two girls shared the fold-out), and it would also make an attractive romantic retreat for a couple.
One comment about the breakfast, which some have criticized. Perhaps not the best ever, but pretty good, and served quickly (presumably partially pre-prepared, which might explain both aspects).
