Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The grounds are very nice and the harbor view is very picturesque. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. We enjoyed being able to walk to dinner at Rhubarbs. The staff was friendly and helpful. Although not noted on many sites, there was a complimentary continental breakfast available at the office building.

This review is a little late, but there is no way we could get away with the experience we had without raving about it. My husband and I had the pleasure of enjoying our wedding rehearsal, ceremony, reception and even a relaxing “day after” with Oceanstone. From the very beginning planning stages to handing in our keys at checkout, each...

We were very pleasantly surprised to discover that we were actually in a cabin. It was very nicely furnished with antiques as well as new rustic furniture. The bed was really comfortable. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. There wasn't a/c, but you didn't need it; there's a beautiful breeze blowing off of the ocean.

This was really a resort, with swimming, activities - a great place for a couple or a party or reunion. The people staying there when I did had a marvelous time.
