After reading the old reviews we hesitantly called to make a reservation at the Blue Water House. We arrived a little bit early and met Angie Foster, the new innkeeper who took over in November. This was her third weekend open after doing some major clean up/fix ups to what she described as a run down property. We stayed in the Blue Parrot room, a colorful and cheerfully decorated room with a king size bed, a comfy sofa, a frig, microwave, and VCR. It was a corner room that was light and bright. BWH is 3 blocks from the beach and three blocks from town--an ideal location for us. There were bikes to ride, beach chairs to use, and a huge video library. The best part of the weekend were the sensational breakfasts that Angie made and the fresh baked cookies and brownies that she left out to munch on in the afternoons. She is an energetic young woman, whose talent and enthusiasm for runninng a quality inn was apparent. We, too, had baked oatmeal with vanilla yogurt, cheesy grits, homemade waffles with bananas and pecans, and an egg casserole. She only uses fresh and organic ingredients. Angie asked when we made the reservation if we had any dietary restrictions or needs, as she tries to accommodate these. The biggest disappointment was having to leave!!! There are a few kinks that are being addressed but none of them at all interferred with us having a lovely weekend at the shore. We can't wait to return someday soon.
