Beautiful Inn, with great views of waterfront. Ended up with rooms away from the main Inn. The rooms were decent size with access to the waterfront, however the bathrooms were dated and moldy. As well as the carpeting. Service in restaurant and spa was great as was the included daily breakfast. Walking distance to theatre and restaurants. Would not recommend...

Thank you for your review and for mentioning our location. We are fortunate to be on the water and convenient to major local attractions. I'm so sorry you didn't enjoy our pub. It remains popular with both our local guests and visitors alike.

We stayed in one of the waterfront cabins. The room was clean and well-maintained with rather dated decor and fixtures. The grounds were beautifully kept with many places to sit and enjoy the view. The inn is rambling with additions over the years. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast in the lovely dining room.
