The Robert Ruark Inn is more of an experience than a place to just lay your head. From the moment we got there, we were greeted at the door with kindness and a vast knowledge of the history of the Inn. Apple & Pear Crumbcake was enough to make the trip for... but what stood out most was the "Nothing to much to ask for attitude", the service was top-notch, recommendations of where to go and what to see was geared toward personal preference, and not just a generic response of what's local. Trust David, when he tells you where the best walk on the beach is. Desserts are as good as it gets, and don't be shy, sit at the island/bar in the kitchen for great conversations. It's nice to go away for the weekend, and find yourself surrounded by calm and sunsets, truly a place touched by the hand of God. Before we left, we had cake-to-go wrapped up and waiting. We are going back...SOON! I almost for the "Sugar and Spice Bacon", it's the ultimate breakfast food, they should have to put an addiction warning on it.
