I can't rave enough about my two stays at the Kangaroo House. The rooms are extremely comfortable and inviting. Two of the bedrooms also have an internal adjacent sitting room that almost demands that you settle in there to read or schoomze. I used and enjoyed the hot tub daily.
Each morning, I would look forward to the next fabulous breakfast. The proprietors are very knowledgeable about the local area and incredibly focused on answering questions and meeting all the needs of their guests. The Kangaroo House is a terrific place to relax and unwind.

Peter and Helen (Owner/Innkeepers) are perhaps two of the loveliest people (and terrific cooks-featured on PBS) on the island. They have created an ambience of hospitality and warmth that many other Inns on the island have failed to achieve. The Inn itself is a wonderful craftsman-style house which they have recently renovated so that all bedrooms have private baths. The decor is victorian/rustic and all furniture and finishes are well maintained. Beautiful large fireplace in the great room - Bose stereo with CD's available at your choosing.
Fabulous place for families or for those singletons or romantic couples seeking a place to hide. It is next to the small (cessna-type) airfield, however, you would never know it. Easy walking to downtown shopping, restaurants and waterfront. A happy experience. You will leave with a smile on your face and money in your wallet.
