My two nights at the Seafaring Maiden were wonderful. The breakfast is absolutely delicious, homemade and using many local ingredients. The hosts are the kindest, and most accommodating people, who will give you tourism tips, hiking info, and good conversation. Will definitely be back.

Ann Marie and Bill are exceptional hosts, making us feel so very welcome and special.

With that turned on low, plus flannel bed linens, we did not need...
