Not having been on the east coast for years, I wanted a memorable visit. I did research on the net and I kept going back to this little hotel. Not getting a response via email from the owner, I called him personally. I asked a few pertinent questions about his hotel and he informed me that it was "the center of the universe". Well, I thought this guy is so "full of it" or he has described a wonderful unique place to stay. I thought, what do I have to lose? Well, he was right. I could not have been more delighted, the location is FABULOUS. I ran down the stairs in the morning for my java at the Coffee Grinder, set on the deck watching the beautiful boats, fireworks, etc. I took a picture of my foot propped up on a baluster with nothing between me and the water. Shopping, restaurants, all sorts of activity was just below me. I cannot say enough about this wonderful gem in the rough. The room is very average but clean and bright, has all you need and the wharf makes up for the lack of extras in the room.
