This past visit I stayed in my favorite suite, the Premier Suite. I arrived to freshly made still steaming chocolate chip muffins for my room....yummm!! I spent a decadent Sunday morning.... an hour in my huge Jacuzzi bathtub, then curled up in my perfectly soft yet firm antique king size bed, air drying infront of the fire place with a goblet of fresh squeezed orange juice. Usually I look forward to breakfast downstairs where breakfast is a five star event, but this day I promised myself I was going to luxuriate in my room till noon. I asked for just cereal in my room and "please don't go to any bother". "Would I like some homemade granola, fruit, and juice?" "Yes". The granola was chunky and fabulous, juice fresh and succulent, and a beautifully arranged fruit tray with lime to squeeze on the strawberries and other fruit !! Who knew how good that tastes ! Carol does! Carol tells me she is not a trained Chef but you would never know, every item I have eaten there is exceptional, and beautifully presented. Breakfast downstairs at the Inn is a grand event. I am a serious introvert but I look forward to breakfast at the large table with other guests, chatting about our travels, sitting at a table lit by candles and laid with fine china, silver ware, those delightful tiny antique salt and pepper shakers, and incredible service. This is like stepping back in time, and dining in first class on the Titanic. For those who don't want to join in though there are many small private tables as well. Owners Jay and Carol are consistently kind, welcoming, accommodating, and a wealth of knowledge about the Inn and all the antiques and curios of course; but also about the Island, places of interest, and local events. The restaurant and menu item that Carol suggested was as predicted...out of this world.

On a 16 day trip covering 1600 miles we stayed in several b & b's and this was the best!!!!! The home is beautiful with wonderful antiques. Owners were very helpful in every way and candlelight breakfast was outstanding. Thanks for a wonderful time. Prue and Barry
