Had a very relaxing time.

We like having a large room with sofa and fireplace. By having a kitchen for lunches we were able to save even more and enjoy some of the better eateries in the evening. We loved being so close to all the shopping that we could walk anywhere we needed to go.

Very nice

The room was larger then expected, very comfortable. The fireplace and jacuzzi made this room feel cozy. Having breakfast at your door every morning made for the perfect start to the day.

Best professionalism of all employees

Sitting by the fireside in the evenings meeting other guests while having a cookie! The room was extremely comfortable and clean. Parking was ample and convenient. Breakfasts were ample, delicious and almost like home. Location of the Inn is perfect.

Close to town, reasonable price

A great destination

Since our husbands have passed away, we try to make it there twice a year and just love it - particularly the location. It's close to Ocean Avenue. You can walk to good restaurants easily. It's just ideal and we are constantly recommending it.
