I first stayed here in late June, early Jul 2006 on my own. I returned this Jun (2010) with my husband. Carol & Bogdon - owners/proprietors - are very friendly, kind and helpful hosts. Delicious cookies in afternoon, ,and delicious breakfasts with variety day to day. They're also willing to accommodate dietary restrictions within reason - you just need to let them know in advance. Any suggestions about the accommodations - they are open to hear, just let them know.
In 2006 I stayed in Pelican room which is very spacious. This time we were in Egret room which is less spacious, but nice. The bathroom in Egret is notably smaller than Pelican. There is a larger shared bathroom in hallway which might be an option too?
Both are upstairs rooms with a nice balcony and view -- we saw a bald eagle!
I like the West Sound location because it is peaceful, but it is a drive to East Sound or the other side of the Island.
I like the tea/coffee and small refrigerator that's available just outside our room.
