    My only issue was trying to get ahold of someone at the Inn prior to our stay. I called 15+ times over the course of two days and nobody ever answered. Someone finally responded to an email I sent. I would just work on having someone more readily available to answer phones because it truly soured my opinion of the inn before I even arrived.

    The staff was excellent and the grounds were absolutely beautiful! The private access beach was an extra hike but we didn’t mind because everything was a lot less crowded. First Colony In was not commercial at all and exactly what we were looking for.

    I was hoping for a more comfortable bed but it was endurable. I would say the building was a little aged and could use remodeling.

    Aesthetically pleasing. Great location. Short walk to the beach.

    Management's environmental concern is not without drawbacks. Towels and sheets aren't changed. They should go green in ways that don't detract from the expected fine hotel experience.

    The breakfast was adequate. Very nice rooms. Nice location.

    The shower in our room was very small. A very large person would not fit.
