My husband and I had the pleasure of staying with Sylvia and Hank while on a multi-day Coastal scenic tour. Hank built the lovely spacious home which they've operated as a B&B for over 14 years, which proves that they truly enjoy meeting and hosting guests.
Huge lower level with pool table, and Sylvia's massive exquisite doll collection (a few hundred?). The upstairs guest rooms, (each with private ensuite bathroom), are spacious, with comfy seating area, and all the amenities you could hope for, including quality Bath Shop products, plush bath robes, dimmer light switches, and oh-so-luxurious linens.
The breakfast was more than plentiful. More like enormous. Included individual large fruit bowl featuring more than 7 fresh fruits, as well as yogurt, granola muffins, croissants, meats, cheeses, devil eggs, and the best of the best part was the hot entree. Let's just leave it as a surprise souffle that was absolutely delicious.
I have to mention Molly their fluffy cocker spaniel dog. She's a sweetie and she's a gentle friendly welcoming hostess, but she doesn't come near the guest rooms which we appreciated.
Hosts and hostesses in a B&B are the most important part of the B&B experience. Even after 14+ years of running the show, Hank and Sylvia have such a sincere interest in their guests, they create such a welcoming ambiance, and getting to know them was a highlight of our visit.
Although Around The Bend is on the highway, it's a 60 zone, and it's a very soundproof house and the location is easily accessible to everything.
We highly recommend Around The Bend for the genuinely warm hospitality, delicious breakfast, and quality accommodations. We hope to bring our sons on the circle tour next time, and we'll definitely stay at Around The Bend again.
Thank you so much Sylvia and Hank!
