The only way to describe the experience of staying in this place. We paid more than 300 dollars for a tiny room which showed signs of neglect and lack of care. An ugly orange extension cable trailed down from the wall mounted television, but you could see the owners had once cared about trying to hide the wiring. Little things like this tell you a lot.
There was also a very loud birthday reception taking place all afternoon on the main lawn, which drove us out of the inn to escape the music and announcements. Apparently they have functions most weekends over the summer and the inn is too small for both. Obviously the comfort of their guests comes a slow second.
Finally- breakfast not included because it is an "inn." Perhaps all hotels which charge 300 dollars a night and include complimentary breakfast should think about a rebrand!
The service was ok, but the overall feeling of being taken advantage of left a bad impression

I stayed in this place the end of July 2011 with my husband. A friend who has a house in the area sent me the link, but he had never stayed in the hotel before. The rooms are very small although we stayed in one of the largest rooms (one double bed plus a single one). The sheets were cheap and old, the place had no real towels but some type of sheets you find in old cottages in England but most importantly the it had no charm, no taste and no quality whatsoever. The "villas" as they called them on the website are a huge disappointment and the price (more than 300$ per night) is too high for what they offer. I was so sorry to realized that these 2 women who own the hotel aren't ashamed of making a living of this. I won't stay there again that's for sure.

Having read other reviews I have mixed opinions on this place. The staff were very courteous and helpful there is no question, but for $280 you expect more. No breakfast included, no extra facilities that I was made aware of (pool/bicycles etc), and the "villa" to me is a bit of an over statement. Though perfectly clean, it was extremely compact!

Having said this the restaurant had a lovely view out to the water, and offered plenty ambiance. Again though, I think the food was overpriced. I had a main of sea bass on boiled rice for which they charged $30. A capuccino in the morning cost $6!

Summing up, I'd say that service, cleanliness, food quality were all fine, but if you're going to charge more than a hotel in Manhatten, then you should at least offer something special in return.

It was by chance that we came across the Inn Spot. What a gem! And how lucky and blessed we felt when we settled in. The bungalow was fine with a lovely view of the bay. We ate exquisitely ,discovering each time some new dish. Highly recommendable to those who like the peace and quiet of a naturally beautiful setting coupled with the creativity of a fine cuisine.

We stayed at the Inn for the first time this summer when there was a mix-up with the reservation at our regular hamptons place. The owner/host, Pamela, could not have been nicer or more accomodating. In fact, all of the staff were wonderful. Everyone made us feel quite at home. We stayed in one of the cottages (no rooms available in the main house) and although it could use some updating, it was clean and it covered the basics. We will probably stay over at the Inn again sometime in the future, but will opt for one of the rooms in the main house as we believe they are probably a little more comfortable and more of what we kind of like. We had a perfect dinner on the wrap-around porch in back of the main house...delicious from appetizer to dessert, pleasant and efficient wait staff plus moon beams over the bay (pretty romantic stuff). Upscale menu without the pretense. We will go back again.
