Actual stay in May 2009
We stayed at the Driftwood after driving from Dayton, OH - just an overnight before starting interim help at a B & B on the island. The rooms were newly updated and very nice, including bathrooms. The restaurant has been a favorite of ours for years (usually after several hours driving). Try the whitefish dip! It's made at Manly's just up the road.
