Excellent property - serene atmosphere, perfect welcome from friendly manager. Greeted with true warmth and given an informational tour of room. Something many properties miss. The room was excellent, generous amount of towels (including beach towels) which is really good. Hot tub, (well - cool tub - but great for a cooling dip.) Can see why place is so highly rated. Say hello to Spencer the dog from me.

Quaint Lodge Style Hotel- Close to Everything
My dad and I had a great 2 night stay here. The owners were so tentative and friendly and they gave our stay a real personal care. The hotel is quaint, rooms are comfortable, clean, and beautifully decorated for a real lodge feel. We loved the access/use of the outdoor general kitchen and the hotel's location in this part of town made it quiet and private, yet close to walk to the beach and everything in town.
