My husband and I got married at Sea Salt Restaurant in June (we didn't know that Elaine's even hosted weddings when we originally booked everything). We wanted more of a bed and breakfast close to town for us and our families to stay for our destination wedding and chose Elaine's. From start to finish, it was perfect! The honeymoon suite... More

Did a Murder Mystery Weekend at Elaine's. To say that we had a fabulous time would be an understatement. The inn is beautiful and it didn't hurt that our room was I shades A purple, which is our favorite color. A welcome reception with the cast of characters began a weekend trying to solve a very interesting crime. Clues were... More

My fiancee booked the murder mystery weekend as my birthday present. The staff served as the cast or was the cast acting as staff ---- either way, a fantastic job performing both roles! Everyone was great. Be sure to chat up Paul --- he loves to tell a story . . . and write them as well. Thanks again! Annalisa... More

Arriving after 9pm after a long day of driving, we were stunned to see that our first floor room was in the back of the inn, on the corridor used by waitstaff to travel from the kitchen to the veranda. This is the only room with such a location. It was accessed by the back screen door which was just... More

We stopped in to check out Elaine's on a beautiful fall day - ended up staying!! Complete with a very funny Halloween play, awesome dinner, great accommodations and topped off with the best eggs benedict ever for breakfast, I'd say we picked a wonderful, charming B & B!! We'll be back!

The inn is a typical victorian style decor with a two story wrap around porch with rocking chairs for relaxing and watching the world go by. The rooms are adequate for an over night. A multi-day stay could feel cramped. We had only one chair in our room (one of my pet peeves… only one person can sit at a... More
