We had the pleasure of staying at The Watson House one night this past week. The inn is beautiful and very well kept. Bob was waiting for us on the porch when we arrived and was extremely helpful offering to carry our things for us. They also offered complimentary beach towels, bicycles and even a pass to visit the national... More

We were greed by our host, Bob Mabin, who helped us unload and get to our room; he gave us all the information we would need to make our stay pleasant, suggested a few of his favorite places to eat and told us "You need to ride the trolley!" We found our room to be very comfortable, pleasantly appointed with... More

We stayed at Watson House through Labor Day Weekend. My wife looked on-line late and we were worried that we wouldn't find a nice place. Fortunately Watson House was available - and we were not disappointed. This is a great B&B! The experience was a quintessentially idyllic B&B experience. The House is a beautiful, charming Victorian gem from a better,... More

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend just to get away. The house is well maintained and cared for. The rooms were excellent and the host was exceptional. Every morning the biscuits and baked goods were freshly made along with nice strong coffee, just the way we like it. Bob is an excellent baker and very knowledgeable of... More

Great bed and breakfast. The Inn Keepers had a great sense of Island history and recommendations for dining and adventure that we happily took. Visiting the local beach was easy with the B&B provided beach chairs, towels, and bicycles. Very easy location with parking and plenty to do and see in walking distance.

We just spent a long weekend here and loved it! The location was perfect, only a few blocks walk to the town center shops and restaurants. And Bob was such a great host, he gave us lots of tips on where to eat and what to do. He even keeps a copy of every menu from all of the restaurants... More

Bob and Carol are so welcoming and knowledgeable. They give great suggestions on where to eat and what to do around the island. They were also instrumental in making sure we were prepared for the pony swim. Carol is an amazing cook and you would be silly not to stay here and try out her cuisine for yourself. I look... More

We stayed at the Watson House on August 4th - unfortunately it was only a one night stay on our way to Virginia. We arrived and were immediately greeted by Clyde, the big, beautiful white cat! We were then greeted by Bob, who took us on a tour and history of the Watson House. We stayed in the Front Porch... More

The room was very comfortable & clean. The Mabin's go out of there way to make sure you are comfortable. Bob is especially knowledgeable about the area: things to do, places to eat, etc. Carol's breakfast is most delicious. She even packed us a to go bag of goodies. The night we arrived, Bob already had made our dinner reservations.... More
