Guestbook comments from the owner
Wonderful home with everything we needed for a lovely weekend. We
attended a wedding at the Tides Inn, and were able to walk to the
ceremony. The house was a great place to stay, without all the hassle
and noise of a hotel. The brick patio was a huge bonus as well. Stay
here, you won't regret it. -- posted by owner from Airbnb review.
