The Gingerbread house is located right in the middle of everything; beach, restaurants, shopping, etc. Fred & Joan were great hosts and every morning a delicious hot meal was served along with other cold options. We were also able to keep our bikes right out back on their bike rack. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We... More

Our experience at the Gingerbread House was a wonderful experience. Room #2 was nice and bed was extremely comfortable. I would highly recommend this B & B to anyone. The owners were terrific and the breakfast fantastic. We hope to be returning soon.

I enjoyed staying at the Gingerbread House. Joan and Fred are wonderful hosts, and McKinley, one of their staff, is an equally warm and welcoming presence. The breakfast options are creative and delicious, and I appreciated the availability of snacks, coffee, and tea throughout the day. A stay at the GH brings a level of comfort that is akin to...

This is a wonderful B&B a half block from the ocean and walking distance t everything in town. My wife & I got what we wanted which was R&R and a great staff. The bed was heavenly for us and we slept the entire night, which is rare for us. We would definitely stay there again.

Joan and Fred are very inviting. We enjoyed the delicious breakfasts, wonderful treats, and talking to the most interesting people. The Gingerbread House is ideally located near the beach and the Washington Street Mall. Mac, their helper, is a sweetheart. We would love to come back again.

Everyone should have a wonderful porch to enjoy a delicious breakfast like the one had. The carriages rolled by and we enjoyed the small garden and comfortable porch furniture. Tea and coffee available all day along with fabulous homemade cookies and cheese biscuits. Very close to the ocean.

We've really enjoyed our stay with Joan and Fred tremendously. They are a very warm and inviting couple who made our stay at Gingerbread house very rewarding. The property itself is ideally located. it's a block away from the beach and only a few blocks away from the Washington Street Mall. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable. Chilled water... More

This is the first time I've ever been to a b&b and the experience is just fantastic! It's so much better than a hotel/motel. You feel like living at home! The location of this b&b is also fantastic, it's half block to the beach and we can even hear the ocean at night when everything gets quiet. We stayed two... More

From the time we knocked on the door, both Joan and Fred not only made us feel very welcomed. They treated us like we were part of the family right from the very beginning. Thier hostess greeted us at the door and treated us like she knew us forever (but this was our very first time visiting). The house was... More
