Better than any Inn or hotel. Walls are filled with art, rooms authenic period furnishings, the finest linens and bath appointments -- doors open for warm, hospitable welcome. When I was there, the owners were away and left operations in the hands of an extremely capable staff headed by the vivacious, knowledgeable, professional Alexa. The food and service was impeccable . . . and made-to-order, served to your table inside or on breezy porch overlooking the water. Down to the water glasses in the bathroom, every thing was shined (no waterstains, no finger prints). So relaxing. Ample, on-site parking. Beautiful grounds, abundant flowers (from which cuttings are taken for inside arrangements), firepit, easy access to cliffside walk and pleasurable stroll to town. My five-star recommendation with no disclaimer!
