It is very difficult to believe that Angel of the Sea is rated so low on this site. I usually use trip advisor as my vacation "bible" and must say that some of the reviews appear to be from reviewers not familiar with a Bed and Breakfast experience. I too used to compare the experience to a resort or hotel experience. The experiences are polar opposite and should be considered as such. As always the innkeepers were warm and inviting. They were helpful in every way!
My husband and I spent our honeymoon there 9 and 1/2 years ago during a weekend in January. This was our first stay during the high summer season. We were not disappointed. First of all, for a romantic atmosphere, Angel of the Sea has it all. It is away from the hustle and bustle of the main town, BUT close enough to walk to it or take a 4 minute drive to the square and restaurants.
We loved that the beach was within the block and there were amazing ocean views from the porches and from our room...Room 12. The beach in front of the building is not crowded and this is a surprise this time of year.
They provided brand new comfortable beach chairs and beach towels and we were on the beautiful beach within a couple of minutes.
Other amenities include fresh coffee beginning at 7:00 AM...a full breakfast beginning at 8:00AM.....fresh baked brownies, cookies etc along with tea and coffee around 4:00 and wine and cheese from 5:30 to 7:00. I do not know of any other B&B's that provide all of these special treats. One recommendation would be to upgrade the cheese selection slightly. I appreciated the effort but I believe that a slight upgrade and a warm dip would really put the experience in a different category.
The rooms are obviously Victorian and have a very romantic and cozy feel. Do not expect modern amenities such as a large shower or modern sink. A fresh flower would add to the experience rather than an artificial one in fake water. The feel of the rooms truly bring you to another place and time. We are a couple who normally choose a hotel or resort, and reserve a Bed and Breakfast for a special quick romantic getaway.
Angel of the Sea has it all! We hope to return again for our anniversary in January! I do feel that they should provide something special for repeat guests...a small discount or chocolate and champagne on arrival.
