Though we love to travel the world, our best memories happen at the Dolphin Inn. We bought the house when our kids still believed in the magic of pirates and princesses. These days, they don't ask us to play make believe on the Dolphin Inn's pirate ship playground. Still, a little magic happens when we're at the Dolphin Inn. Maybe it's the salt air or the slow pace, but we seem to laugh more. The kids linger longer at the table. They go for walks with us. We find time to play games, tell stories and rewatch favorite movies. It's a special place to our family. Maybe that's why we love to share it with other families. We hope we can help your family make memories at the Dolphin Inn.
