We arrived at high tide during a surge from Hurricane Jose and were blocked by knee deep water to get to the Inn. The owner's son found us on the island and carried our bags over to the Inn while we had lunch and waited for the tide to go out. The hospitality was exceptional and the breakfast delicious. Bacon, eggs, toast and coffee or tea. I would go back.
