Lovely Bed and Breakfast

Absolutely beautiful B and B. In the middle of the craziness of the day you can return to the serenity of this beautifully managed and maintained property. We arrived to wine and cheese served in the dining room. We walked around the beautiful grounds and then strolled over to the beach. Breakfast was lovely. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Plenty to do in the area or just relax by the pool or on the beach. This was a wonderful choice!

Charming hotel with attention to details!

Pros: We loved everything about this hotel.
Cons: Our stay was perfect in every way!
Location: The beach was right across the street. Great restaurants near the hotel as well as miniature golf, Kitty Hawk, and the sand dunes.
I loved this hotel! My husband had a stroke, and he has a difficult time getting up and down steps. When I called the hotel to tell them after I made the reservation, they immediately put us on the lower floor, left drinks in our room, and proceeded to give us 30% off our room. Everyone was kind and helpful. They had a private entrance to the beach; umbrellas, chairs, and beach towels were available. The entire stay was awesome!

GREAT ADULT RETREAT - DON'T MISS IT

Pros: EVERTHING!
Cons: I wouldn't change a thing.
Location: Close to all beach activities, restaurants, and the ocean. The ample grassy grounds surounded by trees makes this a hide-away within a very busy area
This is a trip back to the 1930's but with modern amenities. The mornings start with the sounds of waves. The rooms are as thought you are staying at a friends home. A breakfast is kitsch, sausage, scones, and grapefruit . There's more to chose from like cereal, muffins, toast and jams. The table cloths are complimented by the fresh flowers and classical music It's not your Holiday Inn breakfast The staff makes everyone feel at home. Since there are few rooms and most are couples, it feels intimate. A leisurely walk on the beach or coffee by the pool with a good book fill the morning. Don't miss the afternoon "tea" at 3:00 pm. The cheese cake, wines, cheeses and fruit will carry you until your off to dinner. We changed our itinerary and stayed an extra night!
