We stayed here in August 08 to celebrate an anniversary. The previous reviewer's comment about staying at a rich uncle's house was right on target. It's as if you are a guest in someone's home with the run of the house for the living room, porch, library, yard, kitchen etc. The staff is not visible at all times but helpful if needed. When you arrive, you are given a tour of the home and grounds, but then left to your own devices. There are interesting touches everywhere - insect repellent, an outdoor station to wash off your shells, small coolers to carry water, beach chairs, umbrellas, bikes, lots of porch chairs, constantly available fruit, cookies, drinks and books.
This would be a great place to stay if you appreciate history, antiques, conservation, unspoiled surroundings, independent activities, quiet, relaxation, beaches, biking, walking, reading, birdwatching, shelling, introspection and a helpful but inobtrusive staff.
Don't go if you need to be on the computer/phone or watching TV constantly or if you want staff to fawn over your every need or want. Also don't go if you can't appreciate the charm and beauty of an old house with low water pressure, slow to heat water, musty old books and stairs to walk.
