This was our first time at a B&B. The home is on a dead end street, which made for lots of quiet. The neighborhood is quiet also. The innkeepers are very good at making you feel welcome and comfortable. The cleanliness of the room was immaculate. At night we went out to dinner at one of the many local restaurants, when we came back to the Inn we found some ice water on a tray with chocolate covered blueberries and the bed turned down for us. Complimentary turn down service, just another added value.
The breakfasts were wonderful. At night you choose what you will have for breakfast and place the card in a basket in the dining room by 8pm. On Saturday we had Belgain waffles and sausages. I am not a waffle person but these were so light and airy, it was delicious. Amy is a great cook and on this day she made a strawberry/blueberry crumble. I do not like to eat blueberries and my wife does not like them cooked. It looked and smelled so good we both ate some, again delicious. The second and final day we had cheese quiche with fresh herb and tomatoes on top and bacon on the side. Who doesn't love bacon? The quiche I was a bit nervous about so I had some fruit and some of their homemade granola. I also had one of the biscuits that Amy baked, the biscuits were great and the raspberry preserves on top must have been home made. Imagine, biscuits with flavor and they weren't like bricks. Back to the quiche, it was great! Light, fluffy eggs and cheese baked in small square dishes, and no crust. I thought the tomatoes were going to be baked into the quiche but they were on top and so tasty and fresh. I would love to stay a week sometime and just relax around the house.
The rates are very reasonable and once again, breakfast is excellent. Amy and Mark know how to make their guests feel welcome and with only 4 rooms they can provide many things they you can't get in a larger place. There is plenty to do in the area, great beaches, great food, or plaves to bike, hike, or just veg out.
