“Another wonderful stay...”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

This was our second visit to the Bedford Inn. Archie, the Innkeeper, is always accommodating and serves a delicious breakfast and tea. The Inn is comfortable and beautiful and the staff is friendly. We love the proximity to the beach and attractions.....overall it is a great place to stay.

This was our first time staying at a B&b. The accommodations were awesome. Archie, the innkeeper, did everything to make you feel at home. The location is perfect. The breakfast, which was quite tasty, varied daily.
Cannot say enough accolades. If all b&b's are like the Bedford Inn we will be staying at these type of accommodations in the future.
My cousin has been staying at the Bedford for the past ten years and recommended it. THANKS CUZ!!

My boyfriend and I stayed here recently (just got home today, actually) and it was great. We had the Joseph F. Page room on the third floor. It's one of two rooms on the third floor. It's roomy but cozy and most importantly, quiet and private--great for couples looking to get away from everything. This is what I look for most when going away--privacy and quiet--and The Bedford did not disappoint! Our bed was comfortable and roomy and we got great sleep. Taking a bath in the clawfoot tub was absolutely fantastic and I loved the bathrobes we were provided with. And the fireplace! Who *doesn't* want a fireplace in their room?
The breakfast we had on both days we were there was excellent. When you're there, make sure to try the piña colada muffins--they are *beyond* amazing and I am so wishing I had one right now!
Archie, the owner, was very personable and so nice. You can tell he loves what he does and I think that truly helped make our stay even better. And his dog, Luke (The Luke of Windsor :)) is so adorable!
The Bedford is a block or two from the beach and close to shopping and restaurants, which I love. --Quiet and privacy right in the heart of everything. Couldn't ask for anything better!

Room Tip: Choose the Joseph F. Page room if you're looking for a lot of privacy. And bring bubble bath so...

We enjoyed a lovely weekend at the Bedford Inn. The room was comfortable and cozy and the inn oozed charm, particularly as it was decked out for the holiday season. Archie, as other reviewers have noted, was a great host, and did his best to make sure we enjoyed our get-away. Finally, the breakfasts were generous and yummy.

Our only “issue” was the location of the hotel. It is a few blocks from the heart of the Victorian neighborhood and the front porch faces the back side of an oceanfront lodge. On a winter weekend, this was no concern. In milder weather, however, I would find the view for the porch none too charming. That said, for those seeking beach access, the Bedford Inn is just a block from the ocean.

What a wonderful experience at the the Bedford Inn! Authentic Victorian decor, warm and friendly, exquisite breakfasts, I can't say enough about this B&B! Archie is a most pleasant host always willing to share his knowledge and recommendations of the area. We stayed in "Lucinda" and enjoyed the rooms amenities, especially the cozy fireplace in the sitting area. We thoroughly loved our 2 night stay during the Christmas season with the beautiful holiday decorations! We can't wait to come back and enjoy this "gem" in warmer weather. Fantastic find! You won't be disappointed if you choose to stay here!

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at the Bedford Inn. The decor is authentic without the overdone fussiness found at many B&Bs. Archie is a caring host who knows the difference between attentiveness and hovering. The Inn offered many thoughtful amenities-- coffee and tea available around the clock, a refrigerator to chill our wine and store our doggy bags, stemware and an opener available, an ice machine for our water bottles, a bike rack and an outdoor shower. Archie is a wonderful cook; the breakfasts were some of the best we've enjoyed at B&Bs. The inn's location was perfect, close to everything without being in the middle of it. We stayed in one of the front rooms on the second floor (Ellie's). We were able to hear the ocean at night and the clip clopping of the carriage horses. We enjoyed the breeze on the upstairs porch and the wicker glider downstairs. I can't think of a thing I would change. Highly recommended!!!
