We thoroughly loved our stay at Smuggler's Cove! The room was great and the view from our deck was amazing! The pictures online do not do the inn justice. The restaurant and bar are great, the many amenities are super and the sunset views are fantastic! Go see Riley at the bar! We will be back!

Smuggler'[s Cove Inn has everything for all ages, interests, and abilities...except for those with walking challenges. Kayaks, paddle boards, dock, heated pool, fire pit, beautiful water views from private balcony, excellent staff, outstanding food with sumptuous breakfast included. A few drawback that can be easily fixed: AC unit high up with no remote, not enough electric outlets, broken step in front of room, handrails causing spliters. I would still rate it a 10!
