There are three things that are important to us when visiting a B and B. They are: location, cleanliness, and hospitality. The bay cottages scored perfectly on all three for us!
The B and B is located on an inlet from the Miles River. There are adorondack chairs on the point that are just the most amazing place to sit in the morning with coffee, afternoon with wine, night to watch the stars!! The spot is just amazing. Gazing out at sailboats and the water is breathtaking.
The B and B is about one mile from town of st Michael's. We easily walked in and back again. Several couples used the bikes to bike around the town. At night we drove and there was plentiful parking spaces in town.
We found the B and B to be spotless. Saw many people scrubbing! Rooms were very, very clean.
But the strength of this lovely place is the staff!! Wow!! I think we smiled from the moment we arrived and met Jackie until we pulled away!! Such energy! Such personality! Such manners! We loved Jackie and her staff.
The people staying there were so interesting and wonderful to visit with.
Highlight of breakfast was the fruit salad.
We went for two nights but enjoyed it so much actually stayed an extra night. We never, ever
do that! Says volumes for how much we enjoyed our stay!!
Word of warning... No credit cards!! We did not read instructions carefully; again Jackie was so gracious!
Setting is beautiful and fun!!
Thank you, Jackie, for an incredible experience!
