The location is fantastic! The staff is very helpful and friendly. Kate took extra steps to make little details special. Great view and just far away from town for some nice peace and quiet. I wouldn’t stay anywhere else!

Customer service was top notch. Loved the staff. The building itself is under construction (didn't know when I booked) so it was noisy. Room itself was sub par- the back of my bathroom door has smears, and "runs" of grossness. Found a long dark hair on my pillow. Ick!!! Then there is the beach.....there are only steps to access it, so taking a wagon of "stuff" is a bear!!!! Then you encounter the burm....which is a nightmare with little kids, older folks or anyone with mobility issues. Great staff, less than great accommodations! (oh! There's only 1 pool, not 2, as advertised, and the signage says 10 people at a time max) Sadly- we won't go back. We spent a lot of time driving to better beaches nearby (zero entry- no mountain climbing) that suits our family better.

Room was very dated looking. Bathroom shower head looked gross and shower grab bar was cracked. The staff was nice. Secluded feel to the inn like you have your own private beach.
