We flew into the airport for the weekend. Jim picked us up at the airport in the Inn's golf cart, although the Inn is just a short walk away. Actually on this island, everything is a short walk away! Accommodations were private, quiet, and comfortable. Our room was cozy, not fancy. Wi-fi was available in the main house (on this island, having internet available is rare! The fact that the Bay View Inn had it for guests was a definite plus). The wi-fi was spotty in our room which was in a separate building. Breakfast was cooked every morning to order, and a number of choices were available. I highly recommend JIm's eggs over hard and fried potatoes. Jim and Maureen made us feel right at home.
