My husband & I just stayed one night in the MacDonald Room. Our stay was fantastic!! Don't know where to begin. First impression is as you pull up to the curb we noticed the superb outside of the building. Well maintained, expansive wrap around deck & well landscaped property. Inside the hardwood floors shined. Everything was sooooo.... clean. Bev & Gordon were very friendly. Our room was on the second floor. It was immaculate. The bathroom had a huge shower. Everything in the bathroom glistened. There were nice touches everywhere. In the shower was a unit on the stall wall that held the shampoo, conditioner, & soap. This made things very neat. There were also Q-tips & disposable razors. The bed was very comfortable. There were even small pieces of chocolate on the mantel. The room was very quiet & we had a wonderful nights rest after a long day of sightseeing. Bev recommended some restaurants we could walk to for dinner. We ended up at Flavor that was very good. then we took a stroll on the boardwalk before going back our room. Unfortunately it was 90 degrees the day we arrived, too warm to sit out on the porch. There was a Keurig coffee maker available for coffee or hot chocolate. Even some biscuits. The morning breakfast was fantastic. The table was set like for a state dinner, very fancy. Fresh orange juice, coffee, warm berry tart w/yogurt, ginger bread, homemade scones w/preserves. The main course was French toast topped with fresh fruit, strawberries, blueberries, & kiwi. Can't say enough good things about the place & the owners. After reading some of the other reviews we can see that we are not alone in our praise. If we ever go back to this area we would stay here again. Sorry that we only had one night. Hard to believe that the price was so affordable.
