I've only been here in the winter, when it's a great place to cozy up to a fire with some hot cocoa or tea and a good book, or just watch the dramatic weather unfold over the ocean. The rooms are old fashioned, filled with fascinating books, journals and decorations that suit the style/time period of various famous authors. There are well-appointed common areas (games, puzzles, books, journals, comfy sofas, kitchenette for making hot drinks, etc) The guests are usually very interesting to talk to during the communal breakfast or dinner. I'd give it 5 stars except the bathrooms are a bit too cramped and old fashioned for me - no space to put anything, poor lighting, and occasionally no stand-up shower.
