Recently I was fortunate enough to stay in a one bedroom harbor facing villa which was attractively decorated, well priced, and had a magnificent view of the harbor and Greenport. The reason that my visit was so memorable was that I left the top down on my convertible which was parked in the lot behind my villa. Although there was "no chance of precipitation", needless to say, it did rain. I received a call from Barbara (assistant. manager) telling me that it was raining and that I would need to hurry and get my top up. Although I would have eventually noticed the rain, it was a tremendous gesture and shows the personal attention that one is afforded at the Dering Harbor Inn. Hats off to Barbara and the entire crew. I will def. return. Thanks again.
