The weekend before our wedding, my husband and I just needed to get away and reconnect. BHI was a wonderful place to go, even though it was only for one night, we felt rejuvenated and relaxed. We went in late September, and loved it! Delicious breakfast. Great service.

We had a wonderful off season stay. The weather outside didn't cooperate (rainy and cold) But the warm hospitality more than made up for it. Mike and Heather were very helpful and very interesting to talk with! They had great suggestions and recommendations for local attractions. The breakfasts were delicious. The room was spotless and very comfortable.

Thank you Mary for the great review. It was nice meeting you and Mark and I'm glad you enjoyed your time on the island. I enjoyed swapping teaching stories with you and hopefully we can do it again much sooner than later. More

Good location with great management. Mike and Heather are what B&B owners should project. Our stay was very excellent and the breakfast that was provided was just a superior experience in all aspects. The innkeepers really tried to accommodate our every need. The inn was also a "10" in cleanliness. There was no TV in our room and we did... More

We really enjoyed our time in this historic boarding house - best beach trip ever! Mike and Heather were great and the food was outstanding! The breakfast atmosphere is very congenial - you can choose to sit at a community table or have a sweet table to yourself. While we chose a table apart, we noted that many guests had... More

Make a reservation, preferably off-season and mid-week, if you really want to get the true Beacon House Inn experience. Upon arrival, get greeted by Mike and hugged by Heather.* Find your room and smile. Go for a walk/ run on the beach. Catch a happy hour somewhere and treat yourself to some oysters. Hang out and socialize in the main... More

We only stayed one night but found the Beacon House to be a very pleasant place to stay. The hosts were friendly and it felt like we were staying at a friends house. Comfortable clean rooms and close proximity to the beach. Our favorite thing was the delicious breakfast! Definitely recommend this B&B!

We love the cottage cause we can buy a few groceries and make lunch and breakfast, the weather was wonderful for walking on the beach. We are older folk and just enjoy doing our own thing and the cottages give us that experience. The view out the bedroom and kitchen windows is very peaceful and there were flowers still blooming....

The weather wasn't what we hoped for on our trip but this B&B was worth the ride. Very nice innkeepers, very comfortable bed! Great coffee was available as soon as I left my room and breakfast was shortly after. Another comment mentioned there is no view of the ocean however on the second floor balcony there are two rocking chairs... More
