We stayed here June 12-14, 2013 and I was glad we brought sweatshirts and jackets. The wind was cold at times but we couldn't stay away from the beach. The grounds of the museum clear out after closing time, and we felt like the whole place belonged to us. Very comfortable accommodations and it was almost like a B&B except far more peaceful. First night there was only one other couple in the house; the second night we were all alone. It stayed light outside until almost 10 p.m. and so we explored all over. Had our bikes with us and never used them -- so much to see and do in the area. We stayed on the second floor and had a room with a lake view but I think any room will be good. May need to close the blinds and open windows to keep cool but that wasn't a problem. Lovely, relaxing place off the beaten path. The room furnishings are solid and stately and very cozy. I loved the furniture, too!
