My fiance and I recently stayed at By the Bluff B&B with my daughter and her husband. We were in the general area for a Ziggy Marley concert and decided to stay at the north fork's best rated Bed and Breakfast.What a beautiful location for a B&B! The water's edge is only a mere footsteps away and what a view once down there! The B&B was absolutely gorgeous inside and our rooms were immaculate and beautifully decorated! Sitting outside in the evening was delightful and private and the front porch so very inviting in the morning with a cup of coffee. The house was tastefully decorated and cozy that we felt right at home the very first moment we entered. The host and hostess were gracious and cheery upon our arrival. All and all a wonderful place to stay as it's close to many wonderful things to do! My only suggestion would be for the breakfast. As someone who prefers to be on a low carb diet, the breakfast really didn't offer any choices or options. The meal was beautifully prepared and served but I would have preferred to select a few things myself. French toast and potato pancakes are fabulous but not on a low carb diet. My daughter who absolutely dislikes fish was disappointed that her potato pancakes had sliced salmon on each. Maybe it's a gormet meal but not everyone cares for another's tastes. Our experiences with all other B&Bs we stay at are very different as far as breakfast goes. We were used to seeing more of a "spread" on the table, such as a bowl of hard cooked eggs, a basked of bagels, cheeses, bacon and sausages, muffins, etc. This way instead of being served a portioned meal selected by the chef, each guest is able to prepare their own plate as to their individual liking, and help themselves. Sadly for this reason alone, we will not be back to visit the B&B. But to anyone who enjoys a set breakfast then this beautiful place is for you! I still rate it as 4 Stars for it's appearance and comfort.
