“Bicyle friendly, clean and accomodating, refreshments on arrival, and breakfast choices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2009

My wife and I bicycled to the B&B on Easter weekend. The inn keeper met us at the door, and led us to the garage to store our bikes.

The inn is beautiful, well appointed and clean. Our room was spacious, and the inn keeper brought us refreshments and described the local area.

Having biked in, the inn keeper offered to provide transportation to and from any local restaurant - without charge. He also offered to drive us and our bikes 10 miles out to avoid the 20 mph headwinds we were expecting the next day. We didn't take him up on it.

The breakfast was great, a menu is provided the night before and you pick your food and time to eat.

Having stayed at many B&Bs, this place "gets it", providing a great stay experience without being over bearing, and I will definitely stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2007

We stayed in the Hazel Dorothea room and it was a very large room which was nice. My husband enjoyed the nice big chair to relax on and read. They had drinks, ice, and a fresh rose in a vase ready for us in our room when we arrived. Unlike most B&B's that I've stayed out they gave you a choice for breakfast. There were 3 entrees to choose from, you could choose sides and your juice. I enjoyed having a choice. We would stay here again and next time my husband said he will bring his fishing pole. We heard there is good fishing nearby.

The hosts were very helpful and they gave us information and a map on seeing the ponies at Chincoteague which was only about 25 minutes away (and we did see ponies). They also gave us good directions to the inn (we hit no traffic), allowed a 1 night stay on a weekend, and a late check-in (arranged ahead of time). I appreciated the flexibility.

  • Liked — the big room and the breakfast-the coffee cake was wonderful
