We selected the Yankee Clipper Inn for its spectacular view and we weren't disappointed. The service was excellent, Mike was a gracious host and all of our out of town guests were charmed by the spectacular grounds. We will remember this special day forever.

No problems with reservations, even as a solo traveler. Manager wasn't overly friendly, but was checked in quickly. Room & bathroom very clean, lots of windows, great view from the balcony on the 3rd floor. Air conditioned. Not a lot of parking right next to the Inn - very steep driveway. Breakfast was just ok.
