We stayed in the honeymoon "cottage". It is an old house, with a seriously outdated kitchen and bathroom, old and faded furniture, questionable plumbing, overgrown landscaping, door locks that don't want to work. The bathroom was not very clean, had patches on the walls that were not painted, and the house had a generally musty smell. it included a dispenser of generic hand soap - and not even any coffee for the coffee maker, or offer of coffee at the main house.
Owner does not take credit cards, insisted on prepayment.by check for first night, and payment for the second night before we were even done checking in. We didn't even stay the second night - even having paid for it, it wasthat bad. Given how anxious he was to be paid up front, I'm guessing we are not the only people to leave early. The "private beach" was not useful - full of rocks and mosquitoes. He sent no directions on how to get there after getting off the ferry and it was not on the gps.
Also, no breakfast is included with the cottage. This is not stated anywhere, with the exception of a scratched out section on an outdated brochure sent to me after I mailed him the deposit. It is false advertising to call yourself a B&B and leave out the breakfast. Charging $160 per night for this is ridiculous. When I commented, he agreed to breakfast on one morning, because he had a cancellation.
On the positive side, the breakfast was good, and the location is good, away from all the drunken nonsense in the center of town ( unless you are under age 30 and like public drunkenness, i wouldn't recommend being in town after 9 pm). The bed was comfortable and there were a couple of nice antique dressers in the bedroom. The owners are nice people and the main house seemed fine, but I would not recommend the honeymoon house.
