We stayed one night at Barclays Cottage on our way home from SC based on other reviews. We are so glad we met Rich and Sharon, the owners of Barclay Cottage. The home is lovely, the location is perfect-2 blocks from the boardwalk, and Rich’s breakfast culinary skills commendable. Our room was cozy and comfortable with a large bathroom. Wish we had the time to stay for another night.

This is not our first trip to The Barclay, and hopefully will not be the last! We travel a lot and enjoy first class accommodations. Wherever we go we compare the accommodations to The Barclay Cottage. You just can't find a nicer, cleaner, or friendlier place to stay, anywhere. Each morning Rich prepares an amazing photo worthy breakfast that never disappoints. The breakfasts alone are reason to stay there! The location is very convenient to the waterfront and tons of restaurants, but still on a quiet residential street. Rich and Sharon are sincerely the best and the Barclay Cottage is Five Star in every way.

One of the most complete packages for a B&B: lovely hosts, a charming old house with lots of outdoor porches and patios, a host who loves to make the greatest breakfasts (including gourmet gluten-free!). Could not have had a better time!

This place is truly special. Rich & Sharon are tremendous hosts and it's clear they've paid a lot of attention to little details to make their guests' stay as enjoyable and restful as possible. The breakfasts are just spectacular. The bed was comfortable and we slept great. The whole house is kept very clean -- much higher standards than a hotel, I'd say, and so much more "flavor," personality, and charm. They have nice on-premise surprises and amenities they don't really advertise. All kinds of shops and restaurants and of course the boardwalk are within easy walking distance. Stayed three nights and will definitely stay again. - Steve & Jessica Hobbs

Well located near the center of the Boardwalk, with hosts Rich & Sharon who couldn't have been more welcoming or hospitable. Plus Rich does a great breakfast. Plenty of amenities you won't fin at the hotels. A very relaxing stay.
