The stay was even better than expected. The grounds are beautiful, wild flower gardens everywhere, shade trees, kept immaculate. The rooms are spacious, with amenities I have not seen in a while such as doorbells, ceiling fan, 5 excellent pillows per bed, comfortable beds, flatscreen tv, balcony overlooking the bay, even still had the little latch that says do not disturb when you turn the deadbolt lock. The ice machines are real ice machines with plenty of ice. Cont breakfast had many choices and all fresh. The staff was very helpful and courteous.
The two restaurants were both outstanding. The terrace right above the dock was nice, but also had very good food with excellent waitstaff, try the wraps and blueberry pie. The reading room food was oustanding. The lobster bisque was as good as I have ever had, lots of chunks of lobster. The food was cooked perfectly, the presentation was great, the value was good, and from the maitre d to the waitstaff, it was a wonderful experience.
Quiet, peaceful, great view, exceptionally clean, helpful staff, close to everything you need, what a great place to stay. I just wish we did not have to come home.
