Set into a flowery hillside with a beach backdrop, it’s the perfect place to stay if you want to get into the local Hope Town scene. It’s compact with only 20 units, but remarkably self-sufficient: it has its own dining room, a cocktail lounge, a pool bar and grill, and a quiet, beach edged with dunes and coconut palms.
Rooms in the three-story lodge’s historic building are small, decorated in Tommy Bahama-style, with no bathtub, TV or phone. Brightly painted Adirondack chairs decorate the walkway outside. Gingerbread cottages closer to the beach and swimming pool sleep four to six and have kitchen facilities and white board-and-bead walls. It has minimum stay requirements in season.

Loved this hotel and staff. A big shout out to Michael.
Our cottage was awesome with a real island feel.
Gorgeous, turqouse beach. I recommend a golf cart for exploring. Highly recommend!!! Already talking about returning in March

The hotel managers (Michael and Earle) were extremely busy but always had time for guests. We were there to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and they made us feel like part of their family. They had 2 restaurants on property, 2 bars, a swimming pool and a dock for guests boats and the ferry. The ocean was on one side with its own easily accessable snorkeling reef, beach lounges with umbrellas and shopping was a couple of short blocks away. The staff was friendly and efficient. I love this place and can't wait to go back.
