My husband stayed here twice previously under the old management and were quite pleased each time; we were worried that the new owners would have changed everything we liked about the Inn. We were delighted to find that the new owners have made quite a few, much-appreciated changes.
The photos on the website do not accurately reflect the decor of the rooms, since the new owners have redecorated. We loved the coastal contemporary design of our room (Thyme) and appreciated that the new curtains completely block the light and the door was easy to open! The last time we were here, it took some muscle to get the lock to work.
We also very much enjoyed the new breakfast format, with a choice of hot dishes. Our made-to-order omelets were delicious, as were all the little pastries and such offered in the buffet area at breakfast.
This would have been a five-star review, except for the following: the heater in our room is actually a gas fireplace. We have always loved it, but this time it came on at 1am and made a loud, constant ticking noise. It would not stop and was too loud to allow us to sleep, so we had to turn it off. We, therefore, woke up to a freezing-cold room. We told Rowyn about it before we left, and she seemed genuinely surprised and concerned about it--I have no doubt that the staff here takes pride in the Inn and in the comfort of its guests.
Overall, it was yet another wonderful stay, and it will be five stars if the heater doesn't keep us up, next time!
