A Lovely Time!

5 on March 25, 2015

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

Excellent B&B

Wonderful Time in October!

Our second stay and had a great time. Service and Dining were "Outstanding" but the website would not let us click above "Exceeded". Very quaint and charming and short walk to the beach. The less expensive rooms are a little tight but we love them! Thanks.
