Fantastic, we spent the day on Cliff Island, the motherland with family who still reside there and lobster for a living. Taking a boat taxi to Diamond Cove at sunset was breathtaking. We enjoyed an amazing fresh dinner at the Inn's restaurant down by the water and enjoyed an evening stroll before retiring to the quiet that only an island can offer and very comfortable beds and accommodations. Just wonderful!

This inn is beautiful and well appointed. The down side is the time of year when we visited. They were closing the following week. There was no place to eat with the exception of the inn. They were out of a lot from the menu. There is no place to get snacks or beverages. Most of the island is not accessible for a wheelchair.
