We were welcomed to the house with a glass of wine and appetizers on the terrace overlooking the bay. Not more than ten minutes went by before I asked Patty and Jerry what was that creature running across the lawn. Turns out it was an otter; we later spotted two swimming just offshore. Then the herons and eagles made their appearances, followed a little later by the kingfisher, who entertained us by diving off the dock piling into the water multiple times. Next morning we saw a doe and her spotted fawn in the yard.
Patty and Jerry are very warm and generous people who love to share their home and island with all. The place is away from town and main resort--just what I wanted. The first night I could not sleep because of the absence of urban noise and light, but quickly adjusted and slept like a rock the following night. The room was roomy, clean and nicely appointed. Bathrooms are across the hall, but not a problem as the two guest rooms are assigned separate bathrooms. As for the breakfasts, absolutely wonderful. Wished we could have stayed a few more days to kayak and just hang. Next visit.
