This is a small lodge with about 9 rooms. The location was just around the corner from the boardwalk so it was close enough to walk, but far away enough to be a quiet retreat. Parking was on the street, but we never had trouble getting a spot. The breakfast was always good and the coffee was amazing. My husband and I took advantage of the fire pit on the balcony the first night we were there and roasted marshmallows. Cine and Tammy are wonderful hostesses, making us feel like family. I also liked how we had the opportunity to chat with some of our fellow travelers over breakfast and such. This lodge has a B and B sort of feel to it. We found ourselves going out and bringing our dinner back to the lodge every night to eat outside on the balcony. Overall, nothing fancy, but the people you'll meet at this place is what makes it special.
