House Rules

*We provide an experience outside that of a hotel. We are a working marina, and we are welcoming guests to come and experience our beautiful property. We strive to provide an off-season more peaceful and tranquil stay and during the season we offer a weekend tiki bar, outdoor kitchen, and live music. This is OUR five-star experience. Unique to our property. We are not a hotel, nor are we striving to be so. If you are okay with a clean beautiful, cottage, cozy bed, waterfront views; wildlife, boats, a friendly marina dog, and amazing sunsets, this may be what you are looking for. As well, there is a lot of work that goes into hosting our cottages. Outside of a thorough cleaning, we provide fresh clean linens, coffee, tea, climate control and towels. If this sounds good, we look forward to hosting you.
