We stayed at the Chanric Inn Jul 21 and 22 and were delighted. Jim and Joel are gracious and warm hosts who quietly take care of one's every need. They serve champagne and wine in the evening with small and delightful appetizers. Breakfast is a four course affair with freshly squeezed juice (pear, apple, mint and white grape), a fruit dish (cherries in cabernet), home made and hot croissants as rich and flaxy as those in Paris, a hot dish (halibut brandande) and a refreshing fruit dessert (blueberries in a coconut cream). Joel, one of the hosts, shared that they used to own a restaurant and their expertise in cooking is obvious.
The rooms are extraordinary. Elegant but comfortable with polished wood floors and fine linens and fresh, plumb pillows. The bed is super comfortable and the room was full of beautiful pictures, antiques and fresh flowers. I'd also report that the entire home is spotless; it is the cleanest most well cared for B&B I have ever visited.
Finally, our hosts Jim and Joel have perfected the art of comfort. They are thoughtful hosts who are always inquiring as to your needs. Joel secured an evening dinner reservation for us at a local exclusive restaurant which we had been unable to get through opentable. They are constantly and quietly available and thoughtfully anticipate one's needs with an offer of water, coffee, wine in the evening, an extra towel at the pool, etc.
I give this B&B the highest recommendation. Go, enjoy, relax!
