I would have to echo the review written by norcalite of her July 2008 stay. My husband and I stayed for three nights at the Coast Guard House in the Boat House, which is a cottage detached from the main house. I thought the pictures on their website made the property look a lot nicer than what I found in actuality. As norcalite stated in her review, the property looks a bit dilapidated and at first I told my husband that I did not think we had pulled up to the right place. There were wine stains on the curtains in our cottage (not a lot of them, but noticeable) and markings on the wall across from the bed where someone's suitcase may have worn away the paint. I could see a handprint above my bed in the right lighting; however, I should say that the bedding, floors, bathroom, and jucuzzi tub in our room were kept very clean. The "view" advertised on the site is barely a glimpse of the water from the "private porch." It was because of the tub and the "view" that we splurged and spent extra to have this detached cottage. On the upside, the Innkeeper, Mia, was very personable and made nice breakfasts each morning, brought to our room. I also enjoyed the ambience from the wood burning stove in our room. However, I wished I would have stayed at either of the two other properties I considered, which I passed by car, which had far better views coupled with lower rates. I would have been very disappointed had my stay been to celebrate an anniversary or a honeymoon.
