We can't say enough amazing things about the Balance Rock Inn. From the minute we walked in the front door, we were greeting with the warm and welcoming scent of the perfect destination by the ocean. The staff immediately greeted us and gave us a tour. The breakfast area boasts amazing smells and a beautiful setting to enjoy your early morning coffee or tea. The piano was almost always playing, providing the perfect backdrop to the amazing views. Alice, our bartender was quick to pour the best pino noir and makes the perfect gin and tonic. She is super friendly and made our experience even more enjoyable. If you are looking for the perfect restaurant, find Greg before you make any reservations. He knows the area better than anyone and each of his recommendations made our trip that much better. We truly appreciate the attention to detail everyone at the Balance Rock provides and it made our honeymoon more than we expected. We plan to return each year, but in 5 years for sure. Our most sincere thanks to you all and we look forward to seeing you again!
