Although we didn't stay at the Inn, we toured the grounds, rooms and actually used the spa. The spa staff were very nice and friendly. The prices for their services were pretty good. They were very accommodating and thorough. The Men's locker room was great. Everything you needed right at your fingertips. Both my wife and I got massages and...

You cannot beat this location - we looked at several options and kept coming back to two criteria: 1) want to be as close to the water as possible and 2) don't want to have to drive to dinner/town. BHI fit the bill perfectly. We stayed in the Oceanfront Lodge which was right on the walking path. Our luck did...

We were here for 5 nights in May around memorial day. Nice rooms, big but not too modern. Good continental breakfast - great personell there but they try to sell you the breakfast specials in another restaurant. Much too expensive for what you get but still ok. Check in ok

While touring area stopped 2 nights in the lodge. After checking in we were directed to the back car parks near lodges so was a bit apprehensive when looking at the outside view, it has a motel look to it. Maybe further into the season they have a bit more 'curb appeal'. Nevertheless when we opened the room door all...

Right in the village, walking distance to shops and restaurants. Spectacular views from our room, very nice restaurant on the property, good continental breakfast.
