Beautiful B&B - Loved it!

5 on May 31, 2015

My husband and I cycled through the area and stayed one night at the Belhaven Water Street B&B. We love the quaint little town and really enjoyed our stay at the B&B. Karen and Andy are wonderful hosts. Our room was clean, bright and offered a beautiful view of the harbor. The breakfast was delicious! We can't wait to go back and then we'll definitely stay a bit longer.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for sharing some of Belhaven's positive features. We are a small town with lots of good things to share with guests. Our restaurants are fabulous....

Love it!

Innkeeper Response

Hidden Coastal Gem

4.8 on April 02, 2015

For anyone looking for a relaxed and very comfortable stay at a friendly, unexpected interesting place, Belhaven Water Street B&B is a great choice. Good place for kayakers looking to explore rich in the coastal waterways.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind thoughts! Kayaking in our area has become very popular year-round! Our waterfront is one of our prettiest assets. Cameras are a necessity!

Suggest quiet time from 11pm to 7am to allow guest's to rest peacefully. Kleenex tissue in the room and two water glasses in each room.

Innkeeper Response
Sorry to hear you thought some things were lacking during your stay. Perhaps if you would have mentioned these things while you were here they could have been easily fixed instead of addressing them here after your stay....Puts a negative atmosphere on things. All the rooms have Kleenex, so if you're room was out we could have easily replenished (we have many boxes in the pantry)... as for glasses in the rooms, there are always stacks of throw away glasses in each bathrooms medicine chest - and if your room didn't have them, it would have taken a minute to get more for you. Have never had a complaint about 11-7 before....don't usually have rowdy guests....Again, all these things could have been remedied easily IF you would have brought them to our attention... If you visit with us again, please make your special needs known to us and we'll be happy to accommodate you...That's what the hospitality business is all about!

Awesome Time

Innkeeper Response
Your comments are greatly appreciated! Kayaking has become more and more popular around Belhaven. In fact we have Kayakers staying with us this evening! To all kayakers out there....Bring your cameras!!!

Great place for a relaxing retreat

5 on December 07, 2014

Andy and Karen were great hosts - they really made us feel at home. The inn was very comfortable and the breakfasts were yummy. We had a wonderful dinner at Spoon River. And we really enjoyed the Blue Grass jam session on Tuesday evening.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your comments! We love when guests can stay more than one evening because there are lots of things to see and do....Our restaurants are delicious! Come on a Thursday, Friday, and Saturday to eat at Georgie's Sports & Oyster Bar...Super fresh seafood and great steaks!!

Best Bed and Breakfast Ever

5 on November 21, 2014

Karen and Andy made us feel completely at home the moment we walked in the door. Karen is a superb cook and she and Andy are very entertaining. We visited quite a bit during breakfasts and in the evenings. One evening, we joined them at a bluegrass/gospel/country jam session. What fun!

Innkeeper Response
Yes the weekly bluegrass/gospel/country jams are fun and we're looking forward to another one tonight! Thank you for staying with us and we certainly hope you'll be visiting with us again soon!

Great B&B With Fantastic Hosts

5 on November 20, 2014

Karen and Andy Fisher are exactly what the best bed and breakfast hosts aspire to be. Karen is a wonderful cook, Andy is a great raconteur and guests feel right at home in their B&B. Great house with comfortable rooms. We loved being with them this week.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind review. Andy does love a chance to tell a good story! We were glad to have you and share our new restaurants with you. I'm sure your relatives would be proud of how their town of Belhaven has matured. Looking forward to your next visit!
