We loved every part of our experience. Melissa was extremely friendly and hospitable. The accommodations were great - we were in the "penthouse" and it was fantastic - lovely shower. The food was exceptional delicious and generous. Loved the location and the amenities. It was cold and rainy and even snowy, but that didn't matter - we just enjoyed hanging... More

Nice & relaxing B&B with a super friendly owner/host. We had a great bright room with a comfy king bed & a very comfortable bathroom and spacious shower. Perfect location for the beach. The owner offers complimentary wine, beer, & board games in a cozy living room to lounge around & chat with other guests. Great breakfast & the inn... More

Wonderful B&B. Melissa pays great attention to detail and makes you feel like you are honored guests in her home. I would love to come back in the summer. Great location and great breakfast. Even the other guests were warm and friendly.

This was our first visit to a B&B. Very enjoyable. We stayed in rm #1, first floor, w private bath. Only 6 rooms, which i liked. When we "checked" in, there was free wine, beer, soda. As well as snacks. Breakfast was also free. Waffles, bagels, yogurt, cereal, and more. I believe they might have even made eggs if you... More

My husband and I took a much-needed trip to the beach last week, and this was our first stay at Melissa's. It feels like a family beach house that is casual yet provides lots of amenities: beach chairs, umbrellas, towels (plus large tote bag to carry them and other beach stuff), coolers, free drinks (wine, beer, soda, water, coffee, tea,...

Everything about Melissa's is outstanding! I can't think of anything which could be added to make a more comfortable stay. The breakfasts are incredible! They're all gluten free and often include quiche and homemade blueberry muffins. I'm already looking forward to going back next year.

I have been staying here for 10 years now, and have never been anything but thrilled with every aspect of this B & B. At Melissa's is your mother's beach house if, that is, your mother anticipated your every need. And if your Mom provided luxury linens and up-to-minute bathrooms. Melissa is constantly updating and improving. For example, she recently... More

We just spent the weekend At Melissa's B & B. Melissa is the perfect hostess, always making sure that everyone has a wonderful time. The house has the old world charm of a house that is over 100 years old but with all new bathrooms that are not only gorgeous but spacious as well. For breakfast, Melissa has a wonderful... More
