This well-run eight-room boutique hideaway is one of the island's best values. Its location is right on the two-lane Saline road; it's neither beachside nor hillside, but you're just a stroll or quick drive from Lorient Beach. The inn is comprised of two buildings connected by a private wooden deck in shaded gardens of oleander and gaiac. Rooms are on the small side but outfitted in a clean, contemporary style, with a nod to the Art Deco stylings of the French ocean liner S.S. Normandie (a theme throughout). All units have queen pillow-top mattresses, air-conditioning, and flat-screen TVs. Bathrooms have walls of riverbed or pebbled stone and rain showers.
