Best Kept Secret

5 on April 17, 2014

I haven't really favored B&B Lodging in the past, but the Blue Gull Inn changed our minds. Lovely home and our room was spotless, comfortable and charming as well. The Inn itself is lovely, the gardens and furnishings. Most of all we felt comfortable in our temporary home. So welcoming and the perfect breakfast. It was delicious and satisfying. The Inn Keepers are the best, and shared lots of information about the surrounding areas. If you want a great place to stay, great prices and welcoming surroundings, look no further. Thank You Blue Gull inn, we will see you again very soon.

The Inn Keepers were most welcoming! Very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The Inn is decorated with so many special touches throughout. Our rooms were spotless, cozy and inviting. The entire Inn is a holiday for the senses and the taste buds. Thank You so much, we will return many times. Our room looked out at the gardens, just gorgeous. Thanks for a most wonderful long weekend.

This was a wonderful, laid back B&B. You felt like you could just sit in the parlor and relax with a good book and a cup of tea. I love the room with the claw foot tub and little sun room. Breakfast was alway hearty and tasty. Couldn't ask for more. John and Renee treat you like family!

Signature Dish

Praline French Toast
One of our guest favorites is our Praline French Toast. Reminiscent of our trips to the "Big Easy", this dish is full of all the flavors of New Orleans and the South! The french bread is topped with pecans and praline sauce, then baked to perfection!
