Jennette's Pier - Sneak Peak
With a $25 million price tag, the facility is impeccably constructed, with details down to the wooden lighthouse anchoring the bannister to the second floor, the tilework running up the faux chimney above the gas fireplace in the elegant reception room and the image of a Spanish mackerel created by angled cedar shake shingles on the front wall outside.
