We stayed here couple of weeks ago just for one night. Booked the Nantucket Room online and it turned out to be really cozy and comfortable. The room comes with a private bathroom which is located at the end of the corridor, so a few steps from the room itself. The bathroom was also lovely, clean, had a bathtub with... More

The Victorian house is spectacular with comforting rooms and gorgeous decor BUT it was Charles Otter who made our anniversary experience outstanding. He is a fabulous 5 star chef who is humble and kind and we will never forget his generosity and his ability to make it an excellent experience. Paul and Lisa Allen

We are not Bed and Breakfast people, but we decided to give the Mahone Bay B&B a try. First of all, it's in a great location - walking distance to good restaurants or great ones if you don't mind opening your wallet. But, I'm not writing this to sell Mahone Bay, that sells itself. This B&B is all about charm,... More
