    Inn keeper Tom was great. Breakfast was sufficient. Room was spotless & daily service was top notch. Sights are breathtaking. Hadn't ridden a train in 30 years. Plenty to see in the area. Seafood goes without saying. Watch fishing boats come in within walking distance....More

    This is a pleasant inn and the location is very convenient. THe inn keeper is friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was small. You have a choice of having a bathroom in the room or in the hall. Breakfast was adequate.
