5/5 Excellent

Incredible gem on the West Shore
We were so impressed with this place..a huge shout out to Connor, the manager, and his staff. They went above and beyond to make sure we had an incredible stay. Worth the price and you are right on the beach. Also much more private and quaint than Sunnyside. We will be back!
