We stayed at the Schooner room: clean, elegant, perhaps one of the sofas may be taken out in favor of a small desk. Complete breakfast with fresh fruit (berries) salad and the plate of the day main course

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.
