Exceptional 9.6 From 101 reviews

Very good 8.0
Lovely little gem
This was customer service at its best! The little touches that made our stay a memorable experience! Afternoon wine and nibbles was a great bonus. Only slight downside was our room, which was road facing and became very noisy with road traffic early morning (mock turtle) but looking at other rooms this was the exception rather than the norm. We would recommend this inn as the way things used to be and much missed!

Beautiful and quaint. Very homey feel. Bed was comfortable and the room was spacious. Nice happy hour and breakfast. My only complaint would be that the jacuzzi tub in the room was not operating. Would love to stay here again!

We LOVED Our Stay
Very charming guest cottage. Super clean. Quiet neighborhood central to all. Had everything we needed. Loved the courtyard breakfast. Friendly staff. We would definitely stay here again.

Amazing place for Anniversaries
Cutest B&B I've ever stayed in. Great spot to celebrate your anniversary with plush robes in your room, amazing continental breakfast in the patio (as the weather was perfect), and great spot where there is peace and quiet. It is only 1.7 miles from the beach and right next to State Street so you can definitely walk everywhere without driving much. The bed was comfortable so much that I don't even remember falling asleep. The area is safe and you receive an electronic code to the building for your room. Amazing stay and can't wait to visit again.
