“Great View - Was that breakfast?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2008

Great view, but you must get a room with a water view or it is not worth it. The owner was a wonderful gracious woman. Her staff ran hot and cold. The young man that met us was also wonderful, the women whom we saw on the second day and third days were just short of horrible. The house was beautiful, past tense, now it is old and so full of stuff, you can't see the house. The breakfast was really, really, really bad. Expired yogurt, mushy frozen berries, etc. Did I mention the food was really bad?

Very poor upkeep of what could be a beautiful historic victorian. Dusty, dirty, moldy, cluttered, rusted, cracked....the list goes on. We checked in and checked out within 30 minutes. Not worth the money or time. Stay at the Vanderbilt....gorgeous, clean and just amazing!

Stayed August 2007

Very cluttered...dusty...drained pool/hot tub...over-priced...worse than a cheap convenience store breakfast. Pool and Hot tub were drained which wasn’t mentioned be mgmt when booking. Breakfast consisted of store-bought bagels, cold cereal, muffins, and fruit. If one of the reasons you stay at a B&B is for the breakfast then stay away from this place. For the money you would spend here you can afford much better.

We stayed during a hectic summer weekend, and the B&B is very nice. Wonderful architecture, wrap around porch with bay views, and a pool with whirlpool. Very nice service. No TV, and small somewhat dated bath facilities. There were a number of loud college guests one night, probably inappropriately booked by management, and they were obviously reprimanded to remain quiet for the rest of the weekend.

We stayed at the Inn from June 4-6. It was beautiful, the views were great. We will never forget sitting on the porch and looking at the sailboats and sunsets. It was nice and quiet, we had the pool all to ourselves! <--A heated salt water pool!!! Our 11 year old enjoyed it as much as us, especially the dog named Amadeus that lives at the Inn. We were able to walk to the Chowder Cook-off Our stay was graeat!!! Just looking around the house would have kept us busy for the weekend!!!! I look forward to visiting again!!! The experience was wonderful from start to finish! Thanks to all at the Sanford-Covell Villa Marina!!!!!!!!!!
