What an amazing find - just by chance!! We were traveling from the NC outer banks to CT and basically just looked for a spot to stay in between. I did read other reviews so had a feeling Garden & Seas would be good, but it was so much better than that. Out hosts were so friendly and accommodating. And the breakfast was to die for. My only complaint was that we only had one night there! We might just have to schedule a longer stay in the future!
Thank you, Dorothee and Tom - your lovely inn is delightful!!

Room Tip: We loved the Nelson Room!

Innkeepers were attentive to every detail, from the accomodations in the room to the extra details in the living room. We were asked in advance of breakfast if there were food items we couldn't eat and a special effort was made to accomodate that. The cost is a little more but the attention to every detail made it worth it. Everything was immaculate and your privacy was respected.

Room Tip: Any room is great, we were in the Champagne Room.

On a whim, I took a co-workers advice about this place, especially since it was pet-friendly. I stayed four nights; and, not a moment of my stay at the inn was unpleasant, excluding the fact that Dora does not cook all three meals.. . The place is lovely and even affords complimentary snacks and a bit of sherry by a warm fire (if needed). I was able to sleep, which is difficult for me to do. The whirlpool bath is now on my list of features of any place I stay, if I can possibly get it. The garden hasn't yet bloomed as of my stay last week; but, I am sure it is even more beautiful during the summer. I don't often recommend things. I would recommend this place and come prepared to relax, take your shoes off and enjoy life.

Room Tip: The traveler should tell the innkeepers what they are looking for, i.e. romance, quiet, dog-friendly...

Dorothee and Thom are great innkeepers. We stayed in the Chablis Suite. Very nice layout. Great views off the upper deck and lower screened in porch. Dorothee did a wonderful job of making dinner reservations for us both nights we stayed there. She also scheduled on-site massages for us. This place is great for a couples weekend away. Tom and Dorothee can help plan a great time. They know the surrounding area very well. Highly recommend.

This B&B is very special and a great discovery for a romantic weekend or longer holiday stay for singles, couples and families. Even pets are welcome! What a treat!
The owners, Doro and Thomas, have put great attention and love for comfort and detail into their furnishing and ambience. You feel all stress and workload of the city fall off you the moment you step into this oasis-like garden and welcoming house.
The rooms, named after famous wine grapes, are very comfortable and beautifully decorated. And there is hardly a better way to start a day than with Doro´s home cooked breakfasts!
Both owners know the area very well and were so helpful with figuring out a great day plan.
I hope to be back as soon as possible to enjoy this soul spa again! Thank you!

We like to spend every Thanksgiving weekend at a B&B. Garden and the Sea is definitely the loveliest one we've visited. Thomas and Dorothee are gracious hosts, and our suite, the Shiraz,
was beautiful, with a spacious bathroom and jacuzzi, comfy king bed and good TV and sitting area. Our dog even had her own fenced yard, right out the back door of the suite. We would like to return during the spring next year. Breakfast was German sausage and potatoes, and homemade yogurt. My husband is of German ancestry and birth so we enjoyed this treat.
