For those that appreciate oceanic beauty, discreet luxury, fine food, and genuine hospitality, the Thimble Islands Bed & Breakfast is the perfect retreat. The locale of the B&B is simply beautiful, and affords the guest a comfortingly serene and private experience as well as convenient accessibility to local attractions and eateries. During our visit we stayed in The Heron Room, which was spacious, wonderfully-appointed, and arranged & situated in a manner that provided outstanding views of the water and abundant surrounding wildlife. The breakfasts were of gourmet-quality, made even more enjoyable by the ocean-view setting and hospitable service. Of course, all of this was made possible by the B&B’s owners Julie & Tony, who were accommodating and gracious throughout our entire visit. Very highly recommended!

Our stay at Thimble Islands B&B was the best anniversary gift our son could have chosen for us. It is so beautiful, we did not want to leave. Julie & Tony were so welcoming, we felt like old friends after just 3 days! The breakfasts were amazing and the conversations over cocktails were top notch. We enjoyed getting to know our hosts. We walked the nearby trolley trail and shopped in the village, sat on the beach and drove to local attractions. The Heron suite was perfect, we could hear the waves slapping the shore at night. We look forward to returning again & again.
