We rented the entire Main House for a week-long family reunion, making some special arrangements with Jane and her staff for a slightly reduced level of food service in exchange for free use of the kitchen and laundry.

My wife and I spent a very enjoyable time at the Sword & Anchor. This B&B is on a rise overlooking a bay (with a local road in between).

My husband and I stayed at the Sword & Anchor recently for our 1st wedding anniversary. I can't think of a single bad thing to say. The building is immaculate, and well maintained. Jane was very nice, and easy to talk to and breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Great location easily accessible from Hwy 103 and scenic view out front.

The B&B is clean, and the owner tries hard. Bathrooms are updated and very clean and nice. The inn is located right on the highway so it is a bit noisy. Ask for a room in the back. The beds need to be replaced. They feel like the stuffing has been worn out of them and you are sleeping right...
