We had three wonderful days at the inn. The room had a beautiful view of the Bay and the grounds were gorgeous and great for walking. On the day we left, we saw a pair of bald eagles.
We stayed in the D'Oench room, and had a great bed. It felt too soft at first touch but we slept very well! Jennifer the innkeeper was a great host, a wonderful cook and an informative guide to the town and the area. She sent us to JR's bar for cream of crab soup and crab cakes, and we will be forever grateful.
On the less happy side, the building is looking a little tired, and some of the amenities were not up to par. The tub and shower in our room were old and past prime. A chair was stained and badly worn. The storm window was broken. Some decorating looked outdated as well, especially where they used plastic plants. We ranked the value as just average because of these issues.
