Loved This Gem!

My Husband and I loved our stay at the Cashhelmara B&B! The place is immaculate, while the breakfasts were delish,& the rooms lavishly decorated(not overdone). You can see and hear the ocean from almost every room. The LR fireplace was very cozy at night. We did not use the movie theater room, because of a time constraint, but that looked like so much fun also. I would highly recommend this lovely gem. We hope to will return someday soon.

We knew it would be a tiny room (#32) but actually it was a tad bigger than expected. Very nice view of ocean and sunrise (as well as of street, lake, and public parking lot). Only one small window, but the comfy bay seat made it worthwhile. Terrific breakfast. Great, attentive staff. Only recommendation for improvement is placing a dimmer on the two very bright lights on either side of the bed.

Innkeeper Response
Dear guests, Thanks for visiting and enjoying and reviewing the Cashelmara Inn. We are thrilled it was an enjoyable experience for you and appreciate your suggestion for well-needed light dimmer switch on either side of the bed which has been installed into the otherwise new renovation! Thanks again, Mary

We fell in love with the inn the second we walked in the door. The onsite mini movie theater was the icing on the cake. We will definitely be return guests.

A Lovely Time!

I stayed 2 nights at Cashelmara. This was not my first time there, and I have never been disappointed. Mary, the Proprietress is warm and friendly without being overbearing, and the rooms are immaculate. On the first night, since I was the only guest (it was a snowy night), Mary upgraded me to a larger room. Sweet! Breakfast was delicious: plenty of choices and really ample portions. Leo, the resident golden retriever, is at ease with the guests and fun to have around. Great location, too, just across from the ocean! Stay here; you won't regret it!

We stayed on a cold February weekend and it was a perfect romantic getaway. The room with it's over the top deco, fireplace and jacuzzi was completely comfortable. The breakfast was amongst the best we've ever had at a B+B/ Mary, the manager was friendly and happy to share information. We'd go back again in a heartbeat!

Great Valentine's Day Weekend!

My boyfriend and I decided to stay at the Cashelmara Inn for Valentine's Day weekend, and I am so happy that we did. The Inn is gorgeous and right by the beach. Upon arriving, Leo the dog greeted us at the door with a friendly doggy hello. Mary was so great and even upgraded us to a room with an ocean view. The Victorian Theater was the perfect touch to our first night there, and it didn't hurt that it came with popcorn and drinks as well! Breakfast was delicious and such a nice way to start the day in Avon. I would absolutely come back in a heartbeat. Thanks for a great weekend Cashelmara Inn!:)

We stayed in a suite with a jacuzzi tub. It was great the first night, but the second night we couldn't get any hot water for the tub or shower. The pictures made the rooms look a lot bigger than they actually were. All in all just an ok place to stay, but value wise not really worth it.

Innkeeper Response
Dear Guests, Thank you for you feedback which is valuable to us. I wish we had been notified of the water issue while you were here. It was a sign that one of our water heaters was malfunctioning. If we had shut it down, the other water heater would have satisified the demand. We have replaced the water heater and the system is back to normal and running for full occupancy. We apologize for any discomfort experienced by the malfunction of one of our hot water heaters and please inform us next time with any such problems so that we can accommodate your needs. Accommodating our guests' needs is our number one priority. Sincerely, Mary Wiernasz
