Barbra and her staff were kind and attentive. our cottage was great. Much more personal than a hotel room. We enjoyed strolling through the... More

So nice, comfy, and convenient! Short walk to Boardwalk, local pubs and restaurants! We stayed at Romance Cottage which had a wonderful shower spa! Instead of heading down to Boardwalk for Fri Night fireworks, we took chairs and went down the street to watch them (thanks to Barbara's tip) in a more secluded area. It was nice to be away... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week and it was the most relaxing vacation we've ever had. The Clipper House Inn is a group of 1920's cottages in a garden setting that feels like a step back in time. Barbara is attentive and friendly. Our cottage was warm and inviting. It's just a short walk to the Boardwalk.... More

My girlfriend and I came here for a much needed romantic weekend getaway. We stayed in the Mont Blanc. The cottage is their smallest but it was very cozy for the two of us.

I have booked the room at the last minute and enjoyed it. I stayed with my husband and two other friends. The challenge is great for one couple and two other people/ kids. In the description they say that they can pull a portable bed. But, it would be very intimate. I don't suggest you to stay five!! When we... More

Before I booked this stay, I read a good portion of the reviews and we were very excited about staying here. Needing a close to Houston getaway, it seemed to be a great option. Unfortunately, we quickly felt like we were being ripped off. We stayed in The Flying Cloud. I was not surprised by the "old house" smell, because... More
