We had a chance to get away for our 10-year anniversary. I called Stephanie to book our nights - Friday and Saturday on a long weekend, which was an unusual request. But she was able to accommodate us. I am so glad that we came here! The breakfast was delicious both mornings, and Stephanie and her husband Jay were both so friendly. The room (the Mermaid suite) was spacious and comfortable, and the whole house was very clean and relaxing. I really appreciated how Stephanie deliberately makes the house a kid-free atmosphere for guests looking for an escape from busy family life, and emphasizes how family life is beautiful and important but also requires a break every now and then.

We chose Changing Tides for the location close to town and for the reviews of the homemade breakfasts. We found the Beachcomber room ro be clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. Particularly the Stuffed Blueberry French Toast. There was more than enough food and everything was homemade. Stephanie and Jay were very hospitable. Jay took time to map out places to visit. On top of breakfast, Stephanie surprised us with freshly baked cookies each day. We enjoyed our time with the other guests at breakfast and by a campfire.

The B&B was very clean, and the location to the nearby town center and waterside park was excellent. Breakfast was made with care, but overly sugary, heavy, and not to our taste; unfortunately when we told the hostess our preference not to have breakfast there the next day, it was taken as a personal affront. Cookies were left in our room every day next to a tip envelope.

The quiet room had air conditioning that was new and much appreciated; the separate bathroom was serviceable.

I'm sorry you felt that way. I am never offended by people who choose not to eat. People have plenty of choices for breakfast. I always serve homemade 100% organic granola, fresh fruit, and organic vanilla yogurt. Everyday I alternate the menu between a sweet and savory breakfast. When I offer a sweet breakfast, I also offer local fresh hard boiled eggs. If you thought all of that was "sugary and heavy". You never shared any of your thought or comments with me. If you had, I would have been more than happy to accommodate you. If you travel at all, you must know that in every hotel or inn there is a gratuity envelope in the room for house keeping.

We spent a few days in Rockport and had the pleasure of staying at Changing Tides. You can believe what past guests have written about this B&B. Our room, the Mermaid suite, was large with a big shower with 2 shower heads. The bed was very comfortable and there were always fresh towels. Stephanie went out of her way to make our stay pleasant. She gave us very good tips on what to see and places to eat. Of course, there are also the afternoon cookies! One of the things that we really enjoyed was sitting around the table, having a delicious breakfast and talking with the other guests. Today many B&B's have tables for 2 and you miss out on the experience of interacting with your fellow travelers. If you are going to be in the Rockport area you can't go wrong staying at Changing Tides.
