The staff at the Telegraph house was friendly from the moment we arrived our first night. The rooms kept clean and a wonderful farm to plate restaurant on the property that you must make time to eat at.

Excellent location for those folks looking to take the ferry the following day. Excellent location, clean, quaint, and close to many walkable dining options and the water. A nice surprise considering we booked last-minute and didn't know what to expect. The restaurant seems amazing but we did not try it only because we were with our kids and it appears to be a more up-scale experience - especially because of the farm-to-table emphasis. My family recommends this location for sure.
