My husband, golden retriever and I spent 2 nites at the Inn while completing business in town. Julie greeted us with enthusaism and warmth. The room was delightful. Our dog was a welcome addition and the house rules were reasonable and appropiate. We look forward to spending more time here as we complete our business.

The Inn views the harbor and is a short walk to town. The owner is most friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good and was available over a period of time. Rooms are quite nice with adequate space. Inn has a number of common rooms available to meet other guests.
