We've been fortunate enough to stay at the Thorncroft for two anniversary trips. On both visits, we've stayed in the private cottage directly behind the Inn. The cottage is a nice change of pace from a hotel room - very comfortable ambiance, an abundance of windows, and a back door that opens onto a relaxing deck.
Lynn and Karl are incredible hosts. They can answer any questions that you have about the island, including its history, and will share off-the-beaten-path attractions with us tourists. They're very willing to make suggestions and help you plan your day, if you would like them to. If you decide to eat breakfast at the Inn, bring your appetite! Karl's breakfast creations are amazing, starting with a warm muffin in the flavor of the day. Lynn and Karl also offer smaller breakfast options but you have to go with the daily special at least once - we did it for three days, and felt that we could pretty much skip lunch!
The location of the Thorncroft is ideal. It's a very short walk from the downtown shops, and if you go left instead of right at the front sidewalk you'll find yourself in a charming residential area - fun to explore on foot.
We hope to return soon to this beautiful Inn and it's gracious and accommodating hosts.
