    Great location!

    We stayed in the Dolphin Room, a nice room that comfortably fit three of us and our dog. The outdoor seating had an area with a covered fire pit that was a cozy, warm place to enjoy the complementary breakfast and evening wine and cheese. It had a friendly, helpful staff and dog bowls, dog beds and blankets. The outside dog shower was convenient after a walk to the beach. Location is a short walk to the beach and town. We will definitely come back here.

    Love this Place!

    We went on a 2 week road trip and stayed in numerous hotels and this was our favorite hands down. One of my favorite spots ever! The cute rooms, the wine and cheese, the great breakfasts and the patio and plants were so nice. The outdoor shower for bathing our dog after the beach was perfect as well. So pet friendly!
