Cute cottages right across from harbor.Posted Aug 9, 2015
Easy check-in. Nice room- not fancy, but beds and linens were very comfortable. The restaurant was very nice with good food. Shops are nearby.

Nothing worked or was open.Posted Jul 8, 2015
Pros: Lovely inn, lovely setting.
Cons: Consider the expectations of the kinds of people that would pop for a night at a quaint in.
We arrived at 9, just when the kitchen was closing and were recommended to go to Dunkin' Donuts. There was no food or even snacks at the bar. The internet wasn't working and when I called, they had me try all the other cottages, then said they would have to climb under the crawl space in the cottage in the dark if I really wanted it fixed. Breakfast was included but wasn't served until 8 so our choice was to delay or skip. Not a place for a business traveler for sure. Breakfast was very mediocre boxes of sweetened cereal and mini-sugar loaded yogurt cups. No fresh baked scones (just poptarts) and jam (unless you count the grape jelly packets).

Overall very goodPosted Jun 17, 2015
Pros: Comfortable, conveniently located, and relaxing.
Cons: I would have very much appreciated an earlier breakfast start, or at least some basic provisions such as toast and pastries.
Location: Right by the harbor, Stony Brook University, nice restaurants, shops and walking trails.
The inside of my cottage was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The folks in the adjoining cottage were loud, and the walls are thin, so I could hear every conversation as if they were in the same room. But, it never became a problem, and overall the accommodations were great. The only hangup for me was that the breakfast didn't start until 8:00. For a vacation that would be fine, but this was a business trip, and the 8:00 start was a big disappointment for me as I typically needed to be on my way by 8:00, and nothing is provided until 8:00. But, on the days I could stay late enough for the breakfast, the food was good (although exactly the same each day), and the atmosphere was excellent.

Historic place close to SBUPosted May 6, 2015 on Hotels
Great location for work at Stony Brook University, without giving your money to the big chains. Nice bar and restaurant as well.

A beautiful place with welcoming staff. Better in person than in the photos. We will be back to celebrate our anniversary.

beautiful little cottagePosted Apr 10, 2015 on Hotels
The room was sparkling clean and the view was wonderful. Too bad the weather wasn't better and we couldn't roam around the village as planned. But other than that, it was a wonderful experience.

Family funeralPosted Jan 16, 2015 on Hotels
Love the cottage. Booked separately from another member of the party. The woman checking us in realized that we were together and placed us in adjoining cottages. Nice of her to realize that and adjust our reservations accordingly.

Nice place to stay when you have to stay somewherePosted Dec 20, 2014 on Hotels
Pretty, quiet, small town away from ugliness of central Long Island. Less a destination than a nice place to stay when circumstances take you to the area and you prefer something nicer and more authentic than Hilton or Marriott.
