We were only spending one night on the island, and spend a while looking for a reasonably placed inn. The States Inn and Ranch was, compared to the other lodging options, an enormous bargain. It does require a car to get to. We arrived and the host was extremely friendly. There are a couple nice public rooms in the middle of the house, and we were given carrots to feed the Llamas. Surprisingly fun! I can not explain why. We then bought some homemade ice cream from the country store, also on the farm. The room was small, but the location was beautiful - even walking around the farm was enjoyable. We really wish we had planned a couple days to relax here.
