We went to Point Clear Cottages this past weekend for a quick getaway. We stayed in the Bayshore Cottage. The place was magnificent. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. Everything was picture perfect. Joannie makes breakfast daily for everyone and it was soooooo good. It was very relaxing and quiet. It's adults only which makes it a plus for couples who... More

Found a slice of heaven!! My husband and I felt like we were inside a Southern Living magazine in our beautifully appointed room. The king size bed was luxurious in the cathedral ceilinged guest room with plantation blinds and a skylight. We enjoyed the rocking chairs on the pier as we watched the sunset each evening looking across the Bay.... More

We had a wonderful weekend stay. The grounds were beautiful and serene. We stayed in the Cottage , which is beautifully decorated and immaculate. I especially enjoyed the special touches of hospitality , the ice cream in the freezer and fresh cut fruit salad in the refrigerator. The view of the bay is a little slice of heaven. The B&B...

We have stayed at several Bed and Breakfasts, and this by far was the best. We arrived early, but our accomodations were ready and Mr. Berglin, the owner greeted us with a bottle of wine from a local winery and Ms. Joanie had fresh cut flowers in the room. Ms. Joanie is an excellent cook and served superb breakfasts each... More

It was indeed a pleasure having the two of you here at Point Clear Cottages, I'm sure it was much needed. We had a fish fry on the Pier Wednesday for the guest; and I had a chance to just sit there listening to the water and I thought to myself I should spend more time out here. So I... More

Staying at Point Clear Cottages was a delightful experience, with a wonderful bay view and unequaled service! For our 42 Anniversary we chose a location just over 2 hours from home where we could relax and just take a laid-back getaway. We couldn't have chosen a better place to be greeted by the proprietor and a chilled bottle of wine.... More

We agree with JACVB and JM S! Nothing could have been better. One of our favorite things was hanging out on the pier. Mr. B and Joanie are so great. We miss our new friends and look forward to a return trip. It was very beautiful, relaxing, welcoming, and comfortable.
