My husband and I finished off a tour of the tri-state region by staying 3 nights in this beautiful Inn.
It is conveniently situated only one street away from the shore and very close by to all the main restaurants and shops in the town. This did not mean, however that our stay was anything less than perfectly peaceful!!
The Innkeepers and staff are perfect hosts and have thought of everything to the final detail to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
The Inn has had several lives including being a hotel. This has affected the authenticity of the interior, however the hosts have completed the rooms with appropriately tasteful furniture and decoration.
Our room was beautiful with a very comfortable bed and en suite bathroom with a stand alone enamelled roll top bath with shower.However we both found the completely encircling shower curtain a tad claustophobic, and the bath (which had been recently repainted but not re - enamelled) sat on a failry high plynth with only a narrow edge which made it difficult to step in and out ( although a handle was placed on the wall to help with this)
Air conditioning was quiet, with centrally controlled from floor vents which made the room sufficiently cool at night to enable comfortable sleep however during the day the room tended to be somewhat stuffy and warm.
Guests had access to several facilities including communal fridge ( from which you could also purchase wine, soft drinks etc at a very reasonable price),refreshments served in the afternoon, a large reception room complete with piano, a balcony with rocking chairs and ceiling fans, and a library of books, magazines and dvds.
Breakfasts were well catered with a cereal, fruit juice and bread selection, with the option of a freshly cooked hot entree ( which was mainly egg -based the 3 mornings we were there).
The staff and hosts were very helpful and willing to recommend places to visit and eat and were always at hand to book tables, ferry tickets, etc.
We would highly recommend the Sunset Cruise at the Okefenokee Swamp - memorable, informative and romantic. Great value too, only $25 per person for almost 2 1/2 hours.
