Fodor's Review

Stand on the verandas that encircle this old, three-story, cedar-shingle inn and admire the ocean views. Two rooms have wet bars and kitchenettes; others have four-poster or canopy beds, handcrafted armoires, and English antiques. All rooms contain extras, such as heated towel bars and English toiletries. Beach towels, beach chairs, and beach umbrellas are provided to guests. The story of this landmark's near demolition, its rescue, and the move to the present site is told in framed photographs, letters, and news accounts lining the sunny dining room.
