I couldn't have asked for a better place to get married. The Staff are friendly and welcoming, the rooms have wonderful views and the location is lovely. Everything was arranged for us, champagne, spa, dinner. I would recommend the Inn for a wedding or any romantic get away!

My husband and I tied the knot here in December and it was an incredibly romantic experience. The setting is just breathtaking and we spent most of the time in the outdoor bubble bath on the terrace of our suite listening to the ocean with a bottle of bubbly. The food is absolutely incredible and the kind service made us feel comfortable and welcome. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, I'd definitely recommend it!
