My wife and I spent the Memorial Day weekend at the Bee and Thistle Inn to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The inn surpassed our expectations in very way possible whether it is the room, staff, restaurant, garden and service. The inn is well run, charming, and clean. Staff is professional and responsive but not intrusive.
We were made to feel most welcome and given a tour of the premises and a run down how everything worked. Our bedroom (#2) while small was great and had a fireplace. Each room at the inn has a different character.
The restaurant staff is excellent and the food and wine was delicious. After eating my wife and I would go for a walk in their sculpture garden. I think its worth mentioning that the strawberry mojitos are made with freshly picked strawberries from their very own garden. Unfortunately, the full bar is only open during dinner time. My wife and I would have liked a cocktail before our spa treatment. The Massage therapists are incredible! We had one of the best couples massages.
The inn is conveniently located next to the beautiful Florence Griswold Museum, historic towns, minutes from the coast, and other sightseeing places.
To the owners, staff, and massage therapists of the Bee and Thistle Inn - Thank you so much for such an enjoyable time, we wish we could have spent a longer time with you.
We will be back!
