We stayed 3 nights in a ocean front room. The view was amazing and ground was well kept. The room was clean but it was little dated. Their continental breakfast was really good. All the bake goods were so good, especially the pistachio muffins. The breakfast area looks out to the ocean. You could sit outside. The front desk messed up out bill. I called a year in advance to book over the phone because the online was not available for the date. When I checked in, they charged me at a higher rate. I showed them the email confirmation so the manager fixed it. We didn't know they serve cookies in the hotel lobby in the evening. When we came in there were only one cookie left. My husband asked the front desk. They gave us a full plate to bring back to our room. It was very nice of them. We also dined at the Reading Room restaurant, and the Grill restaurant outside. The food was good and great service. They had live pianist played in the Reading Room at dinner. I would like to come back one day.

We stayed at room 115, inside the main building. The view is terrific, especially early in the morning, we got a great view of nearby islands and the cliffs covered in snow. They have a fireplace in the room, with everything you need. The staffs are super nice and informative, and the shop inside has 75% discount on all drinks.

We have stayed here over 10 times in the past 12-15 years & are still in awe of this place. We usually visit during off season & this visit was no different. They are doing some renovations which we were kindly made aware of by an e-mail prior to our visit. Some 'perks' (spa, pool) were closed but we weren't concerned about that. Unfortunately we were looking forward to having a nice dinner in the Reading Room but discovered it had closed for the season the day before we arrived for our 3 night stay. Confusing as to why the restaurant closed prior to hotel closing for the season...Gayln's in town saved the day. We stayed on the 2nd floor of the ocean front lodge & room was comfortable with expected jaw-dropping view. This building does not have an elevator which would be greatly appreciated! Bathroom has an individually controlled heater which is so appreciated in cooler weather. We like sleeping in cooler rooms so having the bathroom warmer is a real treat. Expanded continental breakfasts had multiple, delicious options in a beautiful oceanfront setting. From the initial reservationist, to front desk, to breakfast room & house-keeping, staff was friendly & courteous. One of our "Heaven on earth" places, still....

We splurged on an oceanfront room and were not disappointed. The view of the Frenchman's Bay and the Porcupine Islands was breathtaking. Our room was spacious, comfortable, and included a coffee maker and fridge. The balcony had 2 chairs and table and there was another table and chair in the room. Fresh coffee was available in the lobby at all times. The continental breakfast was plentiful and included a wide variety of pastries, cereal, yogurt, boiled eggs, oatmeal, coffee, tea, juice selection. The dining area was rather small but there were tables outdoors that can be used in warm weather. There are 2 dining rooms on site. We recommend reservations for both of them. The hotel is within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. There is a spa and pool on site but we did not use either of these amenities.
