This trip and stay was a anniversary surprise for my Wife.
We have stayed in many various hotels /resorts over the years and I have a few constructive observations to comment on.
Overall the Irwin Inn is a beautiful location and is very rustic in its setting.
The rooms (we stayed in the newest section) section are generally clean and well presented.
Little details such as repairs not completed ie hole in bathroom and wall patch in bedroom take a little away from the quality as well some of the detail finishing with tile and door jambs.
The food was very good, well prepared and presented.
The service was very prompt and professional.
That being said looking out the windows over the water and looking through windows that appear have not been cleaned in a while along with general exterior painting maintenance that is lacking takes away from the overall ambience of the dining experience.
All individuals we dealt with on site were very friendly,and more than willing to answer any questions that were asked of them.
Top marks for the service and Staff.
Overall a nice spot, but definately not a high end resort and addressing the small estetics throughout both interior and exterior areas would go along way to improving the experience and quality of the Inn.
