We stayed here for two nights, in the Sun Room. It was a fun and fantastic stay overall and a much better room than I was expecting: clean, beautiful furniture and fabrics and in part of the property that was packed with history and sympathetically kept in a traditional style. I found it charming and rejuvenating to be away from bland hotel-style decor.
The breakfast was good and filling, people were interesting and helpful, the beach is great, the wifi worked well for us (turned off at night, which was fine).
If you like old stuff and can deal with some imperfections (a bit musty in places and clearly a work in progress in some of the shared spaces in the barn), you should definitely come. It's rare to have access to such a special place which is a real labor of love and a testament to the hard work Of the owners.
Thank you for having us!
