Two things are important when staying at a bed and breakfast: the bed and the breakfast. Both were fantastic. I slept like a baby in the very comfortable bed in the Victorian Room and a delicious continental breakfast was served TO me on my semi-private porch with a stunning view. The next day when it rained, I was able to still enjoy the view with my breakfast in my room at a very spacious kitchen table. Again, it was so nice to be served breakfast, almost literally in bed.
Unfortunately, the bathrooms left a bit to be desired. Very cold (although a space heater was provided) and a not very welcoming bathtub and shower. The water pressure was fine, but the shower head was outdated and coming out of the wall and didn't provide a concentrated stream. I would have loved a soak on the cold rainy day that I visited Monarch Cove Inn, but alas, was not able to do so.
All in all, it's a great place. Beautiful surroundings, you can't beat the view, and we were treated very well by the staff.
