Our family filled this beautiful home. Julie and Tony were perfect hosts. The location is superb with wonderful views of the Thimble islands. A perfect setting for our anniversary . The local town is very pleasant with an excellent deli/lunch spot. The boat tour of the islands should not be missed.

They provide you with breakfast options upon arriving for the following morning. Breakfast was delicious and accompanied by an assortment of beverages,...

We loved everything about this bed and breakfast. We rented the Heron room for ourselves and the Egret room for our daughter and her girlfriend, and both were stunning.
