Everything was perfect. We were treated so well; breakfast was delicious; loved the Wine & Nibbles time to chat with other guests. Rita and her staff were so very helpful with recommendations for us to fully enjoy the quiet beauty of the island.

We actually stayed at Dewey Cottage. The breakfast and wine is served at the 1661 Inn. We walked from the cottage.

We walked. It was around a mile or so. There is a bit of uphill. It rained one day and the 1661 sent a van for us. There is parking at the cottage. We did not brind a car, but did rent one for a day.
