    Electric fireplace in room was very cozy, liked the small breakfast, ocean just across the street

    The rooms all have fires which was a lovely touch as it was quite chilly when we visited. The room was lovely, spotlessly clean and the bed was so comfortable. For me it was like sleeping in a big white marshmallow I slept for 11 hours it was so...

    We had an ocean view room, which cost more but worth it. Very comfortable, large room with table and chairs, large lounge chairs in room, comfy chairs outside. Lovely bathroom/shower/tub. Cookies on arrival were great!
