          We are interested in the Captain's Nook or the Dory. We need a first floor room - are both of these on the first floor? Also, I am very allergic to down pillows and comforters. Are there alternatives available? Thank you for your responses.

          The Captain's Nook is on the second floor, and I believe the Dory is likewise. There are a few first floor rooms or suites. As others have said, contact the owner - Don is consistently gracious and accommodating.
