My husband and I spent 4-days of our 20th Anniversary East coast vacation at Ann's Point Inn. It's hard to know when you plan a vacation from 3,500 miles away, just what you might be getting into! Not only were we not disappointed, we were pleasantly surprised at the all the extras that made this one of our best B & B experiences ever.
Upon arrival, we were shown a basket of menus from local restaurants; guide books for hiking, driving, kayaking, bicycling - everything we might want to do while visiting the area; we were shown the indoor pool, jacuzzi and sauna; the common area which had rows upon rows of dvd's to watch after a tiring day of activities, coffee and tea, a basket of crackers/nuts. On the one day it rained, they pulled out their sheet with suggestions for rainy day activities!
We were finally shown to our "Blue Heron" room which was clean, spacious and cozy. There were two sitting areas....one with two chairs looking out the corner windows at the extraordinary views beyond, the other with another window, t.v., chair, chaise - with blanket - (my favorite place in the whole room!), walk-in closet and door to a small outdoor patio.
We arrived in time for Alan's 5:30 p.m. cheese and wine extravaganza. It was a wonderful way to get to know the other guests - tasting cheeses with a variety of crackers, trying to guess what fruit was used to make a particular wine and sharing stories - lots of fun and laughter!
Upon arriving home from dinner each night, we found a plate with freshly baked cookies. On the last night we were surprised with an anniversary extra.....chocolate dipped strawberries!!
Our morning breakfasts in the Sun Room or on the deck were first class and included home-made granola, coffee/tea, variety of juices, a freshly baked pastry/banana nut bread followed by a wonderful hot breakfast dish.
Alan and Jeannette are first class host/hostess and have created a warm and inviting atmosphere down to the very smallest details. I highly recommend Ann's Point Inn - on the "Quiet Side" of Desert Island!
