Great Place!

My wife and I stayed at the Atrium for our anniversary and throughly enjoyed ourselves! Fantastic service. Great breakfast. Nice, clean rooms. All within walking distance of downtown shops, restaurants, bars. The only negative is our ocean-view room overlooked Main Street and had some road noise during daylight hours. Not too bad, though. We'll definitely be staying here again!

Overall was a very quaint place to stay. Wished coffee/tea was more readily available in the am as I was an early riser. Service was very good and location was close to town and beach.

Great Place for a Getaway

The location is great. Mary was wonderful, not only in providing a great breakfast but for all the help she gave us in discovering some great places to eat, things to see in the area, and for taking care of every need we had. Would definitely return for another great adventure.

Just a lovely place to rest and relax! Clean, comfortable and delicious food. Located in the heart of the city makes walking to everything quite easy. I can't wait to come back to see Gail and the precious Gracie. A real WINNER.

We stayed in the Victorian room. The bedding was high quality, and the mattress was comfortable. There is a small TV that you can watch TV or a DVD from the 'library.' The bathroom was clean, however the shower was a tad small, but nevertheless manageable. Plenty of warm water too. The walls are a bit thin and the road traffic can be heard slightly, but neither were burdeonsome enough to hinder our stay. The breakfast's were delightful, well prepared, delicious, they are very sensitive to food allergies if you have any, and the hosts were very friendly. Gracie, the golden poodle, is an incredibly well behaved dog...miss her already! This B&B is a charming place to stay, location couldn't be better, and the price is acceptable. We would definitely stay here again.
