Booked the Cottage house again for a week to visit family and friends during the Christmas Holiday. The Cottage house was decorated throughout with holiday decorations. The breakfast great as usual. We had no trouble with the rooms as far as heat as mentioned in the other reviews ( thermostates were unlocked and the ceiling heights are not an issue. Ray and Heidi went out of thier way to accommodate us and make us feel like we are at home. We already booked for next year and look forward to another enjoyable stay..

Room pleasant, including a comfortable chair. Pleasing decor. Bed on the small side.

Room thermostat fitted with locked cover - key held by proprietor, who displayed obvious irritation when asked to adjust the setting on our return from evening meal at local restaurant. No room TV. Disappointing DIY breakfast, restricted to muffins and coffee.

Room Tip: Avoid the attic rooms if you have heavy bags to carry!

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We feel a few of your comments about our Inn are a bit misleading so we would like to take a moment to clarify some of your concerns. Our breakfast for the cottage (Guest House) is clearly stated on our website as being a light breakfast that includes coffee, teas, fresh juice and fresh fruit filled muffins. There is a kitchen area for those that what to bring their own breakfast favorites. All beds are either queen or king size. Nowhere is it stated that the rooms have televisions and yes the thermostats are locked and set at 71 degrees. We have left the thermostats open in the past but with the price of oil these days to kept the rates down we have found it is necessary to lock them we have found that guests open the windows with the heat turned all the way up and the heat constantly running. We will gladly turn up the heat when requested.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights in The Gables room, and that was 2 too many.
There is less than 30 square feet of walking space in this room, unless you're under 3 feet tall. You can touch the ceiling while laying in bed!
The breakfast was OK, but only muffins and coffee/tea.
There is no TV in the room, only in the common living rooom, but the remote didn't work.
The pictures on the web don't do justice for the cramped feeling in this room with very low sloping ceilings.

We are very sorry you felt this way about the room. We have been innkeepers for 11 years and this is the first time that someone has been so disappointed with this room. There was nothing misstated in the picture or description of the room. If you were so dissatisfied with your room and communicated this to us at check-in we might have been able to give you another room if one was available. It was you that choose to book this room online without any interaction from us. There is a picture of the room you reserved with a room description that states the room is nestled under the eaves (sloped ceiling). Our breakfast for the cottage (Guest House) is clearly stated as being a light breakfast on our website. Nowhere is it stated that the rooms have televisions. As for the television remote in the living room not working you could have called us with the phone in the living room and we would have brought over fresh batteries for the remote.

Nice B&B and very nice hosts. They are only 2 blocks from the Atlantic, so it is very accessible, and nicely decorated rooms. The two things that were a little disappointing were that the continental breakfast in the 2nd house where we stayed only served a couple of options of muffin and coffee/OJ, where evidently the main house had more food options. The 2nd was that for the three families upstairs, there was one small TV down in the lobby downstairs for the three to share, since those upstairs rooms had no TVs. If you are not a big TV watcher, then it would be no issue. The man and lady were very nice and went out of their way to draw maps of the area, as well as to recommend restaurants, etc. Nice people.

My girlfriends and I had a wonderful experience at the Atlantic Birches Inn. The rooms were quaint and clean. The owners were friendly and accommodating. Waking up in the morning to warm freshly made muffins and fruit salad with the smell of salt air brought me back to my childhood. This is the place to stay if you want a great experience in OOB that provides a quiet retreat so close to the action. Thank you Heidi and Ray for a wonderful, relaxing stay!
