My wife, me and best friends spent an impromtu weekend and expectations were exceeded. This Circa 1900 B&B was so charming and well kept we felt at home. We were nicely greated and handed a 'welcome bag' of goodies that most bigger establishments should copy.
The rooms were comfortable and clean however, small. but hey - it's a Circa 1900 B&B! The details all around, as well as in the kitchen were well thought out - I wish I had a kitchen like that. Breakfast was good and the eating area inside and out were comfortable and enjoyable. It had an outside shower - perfect!
We wanted to spend as much time at the beach as possible and the fact that IGH was a block from the beatiful beach allowed us to relax and enjoy. Area has good resturaunts (with long lines) and entertainment for children. We were solo.
