We went for brunch. Lovely spot to hang out outside or sit inside and enjoy the view or walk around by the water and wait for a table. Very nice and simple ethnic (Finland I think) breakfast food. They serve until 11:00 am and you order on menu cards. Simple and good with an outstanding location and view. We did not stay overnight in the rooms - just went for brunch

This resort was a little gem we found on the west (Green Bay) side of the island. We stayed right before their "official season" began, so had our pick of rooms. We chose one upstairs, with a harbor view and king-sized bed. All the bedrooms had eclectic furnishings and decor, which just added to the resort's charm. Our room was very clean and the bed was quite comfortable. The vanity (sink) area was in the room, with the toilet and tub/shower combo located in the attached bathroom. It was hot and stuffy upstairs (no A/C) so we just opened the window and used the table fan (supplied in each room) to cool things down to a comfortable temperature. There are no TVs or phones in the rooms either, but ours had a clock radio, hairdryer, ice bucket, glasses, and a small cache of toiletries. They do have a large screen TV and phones located in a lounge, along with an assortment of books and games, and are now offering free Wi-Fi. Hanging throughout the resort are many old photographs and some interesting maps of the island. Their kitchen wasn't open yet (we were told they do serve breakfast during their official season), but the owner kindly offered us use of the smaller appliances and refrigerator. In the morning, they offered coffee, tea, and an assortment of fresh-made breads and pastries, buffet-style, in the dining room. We found several Adirondack chairs and a delightful log-wood swing sitting on the lawn between the hotel and shoreline, which were perfect for relaxing and watching a beautiful sunset, or enjoying morning coffee. The owner was very friendly and accommodating, and was happy to share with us the history of the resort and his family. This place provided a very romantic atmosphere; more so because there was only one other couple staying there at the time. It's style reminded me of the "resorts" of a bygone era. We'd love to stay there again someday.
