The staff was very accommodating and helpful to all of us (grandparents, kids, grandkids). The beach was just a short walk away. We especially appreciated that we got a call way before our arrival date to inform us...

We will definitely return! Super friendly staff and apartment type room made our trip with 3 small children easy and comfortable. My parents met us there and the front desk staff upgraded our rooms free of charge so we could be right next to each other. Enjoyed feeding the deer each day and listening to the waves crashing at night...

The property was well appointed, clean and comfortable. There was a nice assortment of dishes and cutlery to use, which was great for hosting happy hour and eating breakfast in our room. The staff was especially friendly and helpful. Sadly the insulation is thin, and we could always hear people outside our room.

The staff was profesdional and friendly, went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. They are pet friendly and put a doggie towel , blanket and treat for your dog in the room. This was wonderful!
