We really enjoyed the hospitality and home-iness of Doug and Joanne, proprietors of this historical property.They truly cared about their guests and wanted us to feel at home. "Make yourself at home," said Doug, upon check-in. He told us to help ourselves to juices throughout the day in the refrigerator, or coffee and tea that was always out. There was afternoon tea time with fruit and veggies and pastry - quite a nice touch. And they both were helpful in mapping out locations we wanted to get to.
Because it was just one night we didn't splurge with the newer rooms with jacuzzis and king size beds. But on a return visit, we definitely will. Our room was small, as expected, during registration discussions with Joanne, who really took her time to tell me about each room. The bed in our room was very comfortable with great sheets and pillows but it was either a queen or full bed and we were used to a king bed - so was too small for us. No fault on the side of Doug or Joanne as they indicated bed size to us in our initial call. But for a small room, it certainly had a good use of space. The bathroom was extremely small - like one on a cruise ship, with no area to put your toiletries. Possibly a table or shelf outside of the bathroom would be helpful. The shower was a nice size, but the water pressure as in most shore establishments was light. If you're okay to use non-brand soaps and shampoo, then you'll be fine. But I brought my own and was glad. The neighborhood was great. The location of the B&B was terrific - quiet, free parking on the street, and a short walk to everything: beach, dining, and shopping areas. If you get a chance, we recommend that you walk on the beach to the Light House. Quite amazing. Breakfast was delightful and fully served as a sit-down, and the other guests were so nice and interesting to talk to.
Thank you Doug and Joanne for your hospitality! We will definitely return and recommend your place to others.
