    This is an excellent place to stay. It is right on the water, beautiful view, can walk to restaurants, comfortable and they have the best breakfasts ever. I will definitely stay here the next time I come over.

    The Bay House is in a great location right on the bay. Tina’s breakfasts were delicious and the refrigerator was available for our use, as well. The rooms all look out on the water and have their own lanai. We enjoyed the hot tub, too!
