nearly everything a resort should be. we stayed in - 481 and 483 in the cottages near the spa w/views of the public golf course. both had two comfy queen size beds and were nicely furnished with tons of seating (2 benches, 3 lounging chairs, 2 other chairs, window seat), game table, large desk, bose CD player, bathroom, built ins that would be great for longer stays, an extra sink and prep counter outside the bathroom great for families, large than normal hotel refrigerator. lounging around the room was in itself a pleasant activity. the main inn has great welcoming lounge spaces throughout and beautiful huge porch.
we were leery of dining in the inn due to huge numbers of negative reviews - ignore them. food was good to excellent. yes a bit pricey and restaurant service can be a tad slow but they were all nice professionals wait staff. we had the breakfast buffet ($20/pp) in the tavern and had the easter brunch ($88/head). Easter brunch in the main restaurant was pricey but included 4 kinds of caviar, lobsters, oysters and beautiful views.
our only disappointment was that the pool wasn't open and we weren't told when we made our reservations for easter weekend (so we bought a lot of swimwear), despite weather forecast in 70s. it only stayed in the low 60s and it was very breezy. bring extra warm clothes when visiting.
hotel beach was across the street; beautiful, waters looked nice and calm. would be great for children
