I have stayed at the Boardwalk several times over the years but this is the first time I have reviewed it. It’s owned by Gerry and Joline who both happen to be excellent hosts. To say that they go above and beyond doesn’t begin to describe their hospitality.
The Boardwalk is unlike a traditional B&B in that breakfast is already in your room the night before. Sound odd? Believe me it isn’t. The muffins, breads, homemade granola all are top notch. Coffee is preprogramed to come on at 7 AM (and a full pot it is). This makes so much sense as you have breakfast when you want, at your leisure. If you are the type that likes to sit and sip coffee with the owner than perhaps this isn’t of interest to you. You’ll be missing a quality night’s stay.
On this most recent stay Gerry and Joline both greeted and, calling us by name (and with my last name that is a mouthful!). Having reserved the private suite, the Chisolm, we had our own private entrance with three bedrooms. Everything is spotless and tastefully decorated. We were going to need our coffee earlier so we kicked it on and had coffee and breakfast while preparing to leave. If I had to say anything bad (and it’s really a reach to find anything bad to say) it would be that the AC is a bit too loud. I prefer windows open anyway.
Another fantastic stay and I can’t wait to come back.
