Built in the late 1920’s by Island tradesmen, The Barnacle Inn was designed as a summer Inn and has been in business for more than 85 consecutive summers. For over 50 years, The Inn has been owned by the Kiendl family. In that time they have gained a gracious reputation from islanders and visitors alike.
