What a great place for anyone looking for a relaxing retreat with historical charm and breathtaking scenery. My husband and I stayed in the Cherry Tree Suite for two nights. Very comfortable queen bed, kitchen with modern appliances, eating area, and a sitting room with a huge picture window overlooking the bay. The suite has its own private area on the huge front porch with rocking chairs and table. (Think Grand Hotel without the crowds and cost.) Angie and Bruce were so accommodating without being intrusive. We could tell that they have put their heart and soul into renovating the Inn back to its original 1860's charm. (But with all the modern day creature comforts.) Quiet location at the top of the peninsula, but within easy reach of all the Old Mission Wineries. The lighthouse and beach are just a short distance away. I can’t recommend this place enough.
