My husband and I stayed here for our first anniversary (intended to be more of a honeymoon) and it was wonderful! The room was clean and well appointed, the staff was very accommodating (we had a late check-in and check-out), and the complementary items from the other shops were wonderful!

Checkin person was nice and personable. She didn't tell the wifi password and most places do, but we found it in the room. Had the Great Bay room, which is in the main inn building.

I have eaten lunch here more times than I can count. For today's lunch, my sister and I enjoyed the fried tomato appetizer. They're not green tomatoes served Southern style. Rather, they're red, sliced thick, breaded, fried, served over greens, with cheese, roasted peppers and a balsamic drizzle. Dee-lish! Next, I had an expertly cooked piece of salmon (moist!) over...
