This place is adorable and special. First of all, it's right on the water with a lovely patio and dock. A great place just to sit and enjoy the day, complete with comfy couches. Everyone is laid back and friendly and . . . did I mention, there's a lovely view! The ladies who work in the kitchen are very sweet and helpful and the food is VERY good. The rooms (I had a private but peeked into the dorms) are very nice and reasonable. You do get some neighbor noise but since everyone is pretty calm and laid back, there was no late night noise. The dorm is adorable, spacious and charming and some of the beds have privacy curtains - the whole dorm has a beautiful water view. I should also mention that the place is spotless - the shared baths are very nice - they actually have places to put your stuff and hang towels and lots of space. And they're cleaned all the time! LOVE THIS PLACE. It's amazing and a great value!
