B & B Extraordinaire

What a fabulous experience we had at the Carriage House! Our 2 night stay included a lovely, comfortable, clean room with two really spectacular breakfasts. The front porch is wonderful where one can experience the sights, sounds, and smells of the seashore. The hosts are friendly and accommodating. This vacation was really a treat, and the Carriage House was a big reason why. Highly recommend.


Great Time

4.2 on July 13, 2014

This was my husband and my first time choosing a Bed and Breakfast getaway. We found it to be very relaxing and enjoyable. The house was beautiful and very comfortable. The owners Kathi and Phil were friendly and served a wonderful healthy delicious breakfast. We would visit again.


Beautiful Bed and Breakfast

4.6 on June 11, 2014

We had an absolutely wonderful time. Phil and Kathi run a comfortable and relaxing place. The breakfasts are superb and quite filling. It certainly was a home away from home atmosphere, except that someone was there to take care of you. Hoping to go back sometime.


Beautiful & Hospitable

Beautifully decorated B&B. Each room has AC unit in the window. Guests have access to a lovely kitchen 24/7. Best part was the beautiful breakfast. Ideal for a mother- daughter beach weekend getaway.

A great bed & breakfast

4.6 on August 21, 2013

My wife and I stayed here recently, and we thought it was really great. The owners, Kathi and Phil, are both very nice and helpful. Breakfast was delicious--a different quiche each day, and some other tasty options, including some fantastic croissants. We stayed in room 8, which has a queen sized bed, a small sitting area, fireplace, and private bathroom. Free wifi was included, and the TV had all the premium cable channels--HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, Starz, etc.--so we were able to catch up on all the Dexter episodes on Showtime that we've been missing up in NYC due to the Time Warner/CBS dispute. The Carriage House is two blocks from the beach, and they have beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, and towels that can be borrowed for the day. They also sell reduced price beach passes for $5 instead of the $8 that you pay at the beach. A very quiet, relaxing place for a vacation--we look forward to returning.


Wonderful Stay

5 on July 24, 2013

We stayed at the Carriage House from 7/15 to 7/18. Everything exceeded our expectations. Kathi and Phil are gracious hosts. Phil's lunch and dinner recommendations were excellent. Breakfast was superb...home made croissants, quiches, blintzes. Highly recommended and we will make the trip from Kansas again!
