WOW!! My wife and I stayed here after Christmas and it was spectacular. The innkeepers, Julie and Tony, are perfect. They were more than accomodating. The views from the inn are stunning!! Tony explained all the islands we were looking at and gave interesting narrative about them. He was like our own personal concierge, calling restaurants and discussing sites to visit. Breakfast was individually made. It was a full breakfast of eggs and.... Fruit salad was great. I almost hesitate to write the review because we feel like it is our new private discovery, but Julie and Tony deserve the publicity and the possible business it will generate.

I did not want to leave. We absolutely will return. It's a great get-away from the hot Florida weather. Julie and Tony have a special place in our hearts. I wish for them continued success with their lovely establishment. Bobbie Abbott - Orlando, Florida

This B&B turned out to be a fabulous place. The rooms were exceptionally lovely, looking right out over the Long Island Sound. They were luxurious, sparkling clean and comfortable. The snacks, wine and cheese hour, and gourmet breakfast was only topped by the hospitality, warmth and graciousness of our hosts, Julie and Tony. Our three night stay was a highlight of our trip to Connecticut. We SHALL return! Sue and Herb Lieberman, Dana Point, California
