I felt compelled to write a review after reading the "double booked" one. We have stayed at The Gingerbread Cottage a few times and have always enjoyed our stay. We are a family of five and Vanessa made sure we all had our own rooms, we felt very comfortable, and well fed. Walking distance to downtown and the ocean.
Unfortunately errors happen, but it seems you were well taken care of in terms of Vanessa finding you another B & B.
Please note, although the date says April 2013, that is not when we stayed.
