My husband and I are "older" (60&67+) "newly weds" on the search for "Our Special Place!" We found it here!
Staying in the Amber Room cottage enjoying an AMAZING VIEW of the ocean from either our pillow-propped bed or from our own private deck sheltered from the winds and our "neighbors" with hedged-garden "rooms," where flowers abound, this has got to be Heaven On Earth-!!!
Enjoy the in-room deep soaking tub with jets and complimentary bubble bath, cozy-perfect bed with dreamy down-filled mattress and topped with quilts for those cool ocean nights. Private fireplace, and in-room refrigerator are just a few extras we found comforting. Pet friendly, lots of private places to sit bundled up with their generous collection of throws, watching the ocean sun-sets, ravens dance in the air or, if you're an early riser... watch the day come alive!
Breakfast is Served!!! And what a breakfast it is too! No need for lunch! We enjoyed homemade blueberry-bread french toast with lemon-zest topping, a BIG bowl of fresh fruit, orange juice, sausage and coffee/tea. Oh, and don't forget the chocolate scones! Just in case you're looking for a snack of fresh baked goodies, or up-before-dawn coffee/tea, it's all there for you in the guest snack room. Fresh popped popcorn and always a plate full of yummy treats to hold you over to your next meal.
We enjoyed an easy walk to town. The road is a bit narrow for about 100 feet when walking two pugs on a leash, but Agate Cove is located away from the main-drag, so the traffic is sparse. There's a lovely trail and point across the street where you can enjoy the ocean up-close. A little hike down to the beach.
Agate Cove reflects "Pride Of Ownership" with Roger and Lorraine living on-site. Two of the nicest-down-to-earth-honest people you are likely to meet. Roger is "deliciously wicked" in the kitchen whipping up breakfast that would easily run you $50.00 for two at the local restaurants, all included in your room rate. Lorraine defines "Gracious" and "Sweet!" check out her knitted goodies in the gift shop.
The morning dining room comes with your own private ocean view and for those stormy days, the crystal chandelier glistens the dining room with tiny rainbows.
Whether you're a couple of old-newly-weds or bride and groom looking for their perfect wedding location with a view of the ocean as a back-drop, or newly-weds honeymooning... or family reunion looking for your special place... This is it-!!!
Why go to Hawaii when it's right here in your own backyard!
