My wife and I spent 3 nights at the Castle B&B. We were in the Katie room on the second floor. The view out our window was of Silver Lake. The room was spotless. It had enough storage space for our clothing and beachwear. There was a large corner garden tub in the room.
We enjoyed breakfast every morning but we both really liked the French toast and scrambled eggs. Bottles of water, soda, and lemonade were available around the clock.
This B&B has a nice pool for an afternoon dip. There aren't but a few pools on the island. The landing on the fourth floor provided a panoramic view of the area and the island lighthouse.
Bicycles were available free for our use. You could bike to almost everywhere on the island. A short walk put you into the heart of the 'downtown' area.
We enjoyed our afternoon drinks at the Jolly Roger watching a local fisherman clean the catch of the day. The Back Porch served up a great meal for my wife's birthday.
We had to leave the island two days early because of a problem with a bad toothache. The castle gladly refunded our money for those two days. I'm not sure how many other B&B's would have done that.
