We had a wonderful stay at the Boreas Bed and Breakfast ~ you felt as if you were home away from home. Can't say enough and the food and hospitality was the best! We will certainly return and stay longer. Would highly recommend Boreas to everyone who wants to stay in comfortable, beautiful surroundings.

Our visit began as a escape from the grief of the passing of our beloved dog. Going to the Ocean for a quick getaway seemed like the best solution. I searched on line found Boreas website and just called. Susie answered promptly and as I explained our situation, she simply said, "come down and we'll look after you". She and Bill gave us such wonderful attention, knew exactly what we needed and provided it perfectly. We ended up staying an extra day, visiting two of their favorite restaurants, walked the Ocean and started healing our spirits. We're very grateful to have had this beautiful place to retreat to at a time of need. My highest praise for the hard work and devotion to being in service that Susie and Bill extend their guests!

My boyfriend and I booked the room on a sper of the moment whim, never being to a bed and breakfast or to long beach. I stay was amaizing. Our hosts Susie and Bill were alot of fun and full on knowledge. Our bed was the most comfortable bed either of us has ever slept in. Our breakfast every morning were 4 star. They are great cooks. They had made reservations for us one evening and the food was fanaminal. All of there recommindations were perfect. I now want to stay in a bed and breakfast always and will definantly be back.
We hope you were properly spoiled when you stayed with us. We're glad you had such a good time--so did we! Thank you for staying with us and we hope you come back again soon!!
