Very enjoyable stay! After checking in we were ready to eat. The maitre d' was very gracious and accommodating to us. Especially with our indecisive start to dinner! Our stay encountered terrible weather, which is to say it was very hot and humid without a whisper of wind, unusual for the island. Well we first thought of eating on the patio, but as mentioned the weather was less than ideal, so we asked the maitre d' if we could move inside. He graciously accommodated us, we chose the bar area where the Detroit Tiger game was on which suited our eight year old baseball crazy son just fine. However a couple of other gentlemen arrived and their talk was a little loud and we again asked to move. Without a second thought, the maitre d' moved the fussiest family at the Inn to the main dining room which was quieter and actually near a portable air conditioner!
And let's not forget about my son! The most awesome bartender on the island came running into the dining room and gave him scoring updates from the Tiger game as they happened!
Do stay in the summer house for the air conditioned rooms!
