On this island, everyone says "hi" to everyone, small, nothing to do and really nowhere to go, nothing to see. Pick up from the ferry by a dusty van. Enjoyed the hotel, a classic 1900 structure, timber, decent rooms, spacious bathrooms, well kept. Especially nice the one evening when we were the only guests in the restaurant (and probably the hotel, although the staff wouldn't admit that). Good variety of US wines, had a good Oregon pinot noir, the menus are good, excellent chef who deals professionally with any last minute obstacles such as allergies.
You must enjoy a glass of white and a few oysters on sunny evening on large the porch: spectacular! Try to sit through the sunset.
Staff is mostly young, refreshingly helpful. And of one the more senior waitresses remembered her grandpa shooting it out against Annie Oakley.
