A great place to stay
This quaint out of the way hotel is a great place. The friendliness of the staff was a refreshing breath of fresh air. The fact that is out of the way makes for a quiet and pleasurable stay. The breakfast was home cooked and delicious 😋

8/10 Very good

this is a lovely Inn, close to the ocean. the service is wonderful. for me most importantly, it is very peaceful place to stay. for skin sensitive people, the bedding and towels are not as chlorinated as other hotels, soft and nice but mildly scented.
