My wife Barbara and I stayed at A Seafaring Maiden for two nights . The hosts really understood what providing hospitality and excellent service was all about. The breakfasts were appealing and were taken as a group with the other folk that had booked for the previous night. This was not altogether unusual in our experience during this trip, but the pleasing thing was that this was not overwhelming as there are only three bedrooms available in the house. The house has been lovingly restored and appropriately furnished as a wonderful multistoried home with a maritime outlook-it was previously owned by one of Anne Marie' relatives-so it means a lot to them. Make sure you ask them about the local lobster !! Their touristic advice was greatly appreciated, particularly where we could purchase live lobster, which was cooked while you waited for and about $8 / pound, direct from the wholesaler/retailer (we would pay four times as much as that here in Australia). They set us up in the loft of their barn, provided butter and appropriate utensils to consume the crustaceans, advice on how to get the most meat from each lobster (this was very helpful although we were already skilled in this type of activity) and opened the large upper window so that we had a panoramic view of the estuary whilst we consumed quality seafood and wine- a wonderful experience that will stay with us for the rest of our lives. These hosts really encapsulate what everybody would like to experience when they stay in B&Bs which is made all the more enjoyable by the reasonable tariff that they charge.
