Amenities: Park your boat in one of the inn’s slips or take out a complimentary kayak (or bike). You can also crab or fish from the dock. Innkeepers Amanda and Chris Comer offer a lovely wine list, a beautiful picnic on their water-view lawn, and a private guests-only dinner upon request (Amanda was trained at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and the Culinary Institute of America).
