Would definitely recommend this B & B if you are looking to stay a couple of nights on the island.
Mac Is. was our final destination on our 10 day trip fall trip we take with another couple every year. (We pick a state every year). We took the fairy over in the morning, and two hours later after dropping our luggage off at the Inn, we were off biking around the island in beautiful weather. (On the recommendation of the innkeepers, which was good cause it rained the next day). After biking, we came just in time for treats and got settled down in our top floor suite, where we and the other couple both had beautifully decorated and comfortable bedrooms, and then a relaxing sitting room that was perfect for the four of us to converse and play cards as we choose our dinner plans.
Mornings are nice, as we like the laid back atmosphere, nice large tiled, rain style shower, listening to the clip clop of the horse drawn carriage as we savored those great egg casseroles and fruit.
Since we were sharing the suite, it was good that the sink was located outside of the closed bath and commode part. They have it equipped with large fluffy towels and hair dryer, etc. I really liked that it had lots of windows so you don't have that claustrophobic feel of hotel rooms, nice and light, oh, and it had a fridge for our left overs from the restaurant we had for lunch the next day.
If you go towards the second or third week in Sept., and during the weekday, it is usually good weather, better rates, and less people, and we found that true. So, two days and three nights was adequate for acquainting us with this part of our trip, and we were glad we stayed, so keep up the good work innkeepers. We will be returning the next time we go north.
