We just returned home from a 2 Night Stay at the Carisbrooke Inn, and we'd highly recommend it! We stayed in the Morning Mist room in the cottage across the street from the main inn, which includes a very comfy bed, small kitchen area and plenty of room to move around. The bathroom was very small, but functional. I hear that the rooms in the main inn are beautifully appointed but more expensive - this less expensive room was very nice, and we loved having the kitchen available to us.
The inn is located just a half-block off of the Ventnor Boardwalk, which we loved. The best part of this Bed and Breakfast is the extras and the staff.
As for the extras, there was a bottle of wine awaiting us in our room. Refrigerators in the hall are stocked with bottles of cold water for guests free of charge. There were fresh made cookies and fruit put out for guests when we arrived, and the cookies were delicious. In the evening, our hosts put out wine, cheese, crackers and other snacks for guests.
My husband and I agree that the breakfast included with our stay was the best breakfast we ever had included with a hotel stay. There was fruit, homemade scones, a wide selection of teas and coffee and juice as the first course, and then we had the choice of eggs, omelets, oatmeal, french toast or their famous pancakes cooked to order, with our choice of a selection of a variety of bacons, sausages, potatoes and more. The food was presented prettily with additional fruit, and it was all scrumptious. Our favorites were the pancakes and the omelets, which were prepared perfectly every day.
The inn also provided towels and beach chairs, which was handy, and beach tags for our entire stay.
The very best part of our stay was the welcoming and attentive staff, especially a young man named Lucas who greeted us when we arrived. He took care of our every need, and even walked us to our room and offered to carry our bags. Every time we saw him over the 3 days we were there, he checked on if there was anything he could do for us and was so kind and helpful. Even while painting the porch when we were leaving, he offered to help carry our bags, and talked with my husband about our stay and invited us to return to the inn. I wish this young man worked for my business - I would hire him in a minute. :)
We typically stay in Atlantic City at the casinos, but I'm sure we'll be staying at the Carisbrooke Inn from now on, due to their exceptional service.
