We love Bed and Breakfasts and have stayed at many. This was one of the finest and had so many extras you wouldn't expect. I can't say enough about the staff. Every one of them was sweet and helpful and was willing to go the extra mile.
Breakfast was superb. The grits were the best I've ever tasted. Most days we had a pork grillades but on Thursdays they serve shrimp and grits that they teach us how to make on Wednesday. They also have a variety of fresh fruit, bacon, sausage, ham, yogurt, cereal, and the most amazing biscuits and gravy. They make Belgian waffles that are light and airy. And of course any type of egg or omelet you want. chef Greg serves everything with a smile and conversation.
You would think after eating all that, we'd be done for the day, but no! Then they provide you a wonderful box lunch from Honeybaked Ham and put out home baked cookies, lemonade and iced tea. There are refrigerators stocked throughout the facility with water, soda and candy bars.
At 4 it's happy hour with margaritas, wine,daquiris and beer. There are chairs and umbrellas provided for you on the beach and beach towels as well. They have bicycles that you can ride and nothing is extra. It is all just part of the service.
I struggle to imagine anything else they can do to make you feel at home.
A fantastic place to visit to feel relaxed and pampered.
