According to the locals, the inn’s restaurant specialty “Cheeseburger in Paradise” inspired the Jimmy Buffett hit. Another of its claims to fame is its ghost. The apparition of a woman with long brown hair has been known to visit guest rooms, and a busboy’s tub once flew across the kitchen. Folks speculate that the ghost is a New York woman who once came to the inn to recover from tuberculosis, but passed away.
