The historic, white-clapboard Island Inn, built in 1901 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, really shows its age. Basic rooms attract history buffs and budget-minded travelers, while units in the modern villas across the street are clean, spacious, and great for families or groups of friends. These one- and two-bedroom villas, with full kitchens, living rooms, and laundry facilities have lovely porches that overlook an outdoor pool. They rent by the
night ($$$$) but are a better deal by the week.
