Dieter and his wife made us feel welcome at their lovely B&B. We were in the honeymoon suite and it has lovely views of the water. If you are a bird watcher you can see them up close with the bird scope and binoculars they provide. The room was spacious and bed very comfortable. The highlight of the stay for... More

We just spent three wonderful nights in the Honeymoon Suite, which had an amazing view of the lagoon and ocean. The breakfast served every morning, was so delicious and unique. Dieter and his lovely wife, are wonderful cooks and hosts! We felt like family and realized this kind of service makes us want to come back and visit sooner than... More

We stayed at Birds of a Feather for 3 nights and was blown away. We stayed in the Luxury suite, and was amazed by how clean it was. I loved the little patio that offers the perfect view over the lagoon, and the weather was perfect every night to sit out there and relax. Breakfast is a treat on its... More

I recently stayed at BOAF for part of my honeymoon. It was a great getaway from the business of the city to just relax for awhile. Dieter was very accommodating and allows everyone to utilize his canoe, kayaks, bicycles, etc without extra charge. The hot tub was very nice, and you get private use after 9pm if you have the...

From the banner on the website we expected a location within sight of mountains and on the ocean. This location isn't quite that - it's on an inlet that is billed (no pun intended) as a bird sanctuary. I saw geese, swans, a kingfisher, an eagle, a wonderful blue heron, and I'm sure I would have seen more if I... More

Thank you for your helpful comments. Sorry the collage resulted in you not receiving what you expected. We have asked our graphic designer to revisit this perhaps incorporating actual photograph similar to the many throughout our site and our Facebook page when we rebuild our site over the winter. We've strived to depict the property as accurately as possible with... More

I booked a room with them last night (Jul 22) for one night on Aug 1st and it was booked and paid for (through a 3rd-party site). A person from the B&B (it appears to be one of the owners) called me up this morning (Jul 23) and told me that he wanted me to book 2 nights or he... More

Robert Ma has never stayed with us. He booked through a 3rd party site Hotels.com which partners with Expedia which in turn partners with BedandBreakfast.com who in turn we have a membership with. The evening of July 23 a 3 night reservation was canceled for the nights of August 1, 2 and 3 resulting in the room becoming available. The... More

We stayed here for a night for my boyfriends birthday. We had never been to a bed and breakfast before but heard really good things about Birds of a feather. Right when we drove in the culdesac you saw the lagoon and the gorgeous view. Not only is the location just perfect, the house itself is beautiful and elegant, and... More

This was our second stay at Birds of a Feather (last stay was 8 years ago for our honeymoon). Once again we were awed by the beautiful location, friendly hosts and the cleanliness. We stayed in the family suite due to availability and enjoyed the extra space. The ocean front hot tub is a wonderful addition! The only thing I... More

It was right on the water with a view of the city, geese and swans swimming by and we saw several bald eagles.What a sight!
