“"The most charming of the B & B's”
Reviewed October 17, 2005

We were totally charmed by the atmosphere & by the host's Joan & Fred. What a lovely house! This to me was the perfect B & B to stay. I don't think that we can say enough on the way we enjoyed everything. So down to earth. That touch of victorian charm!!!!!!!! My fiance & I will definitely return!

We went to the Gingerbread House when our other B&B fell through, and I've never been so happy with an unexpected change of plans. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms on the top floor and couldn't have been happier. It was cozy and comfortable and perfect. We fell out of bed and walked to the beach in a matter of minutes - it's just across the street. The food was DELICIOUS - hot breakfast with a variety of fruit and yogurt options every morning.

The owners were sweet and obliging and wonderful. I don't have a single complaint about our stay - on the days when it rained, we curled up inside with books and boardgames, all provided by the Gingerbread House. We'll definitely be back next year and hopefully for years to come.
