          Booked two rooms for two nights for $1,000. Arrived to find we were the only occupants and that the restaurant was closed. Hotel would not allow us to cancel ($500 deposit) and instead put us into a B&B they owned. They never checked to see...More

          Visited in the off-season, but got a clear sense of the charm and style of this historic hotel. The Victorian-era building retains that feel, with careful decorations and lots of inviting seating and rocking chairs, especially on the expansive porch. The staff were incredibly friendly...More

          We just booked for 7/14-7/16. A queen room. We would like to have a room with access to the balcony on second floor please. Also away from stairs with tv if possible. Hopefully it has a larger bathroom we are big people. Is there parking available on premises. Beach chairs? Bikes? Thank you and can't wait to hear back from you. Michele & Mark
