The setting of this B & B is ideal for nature lovers. On the opposite side of the bay from the town, there was ample opportunity to view the wildlife. Most exciting, we saw all ages of bald eagles--a real treat for us. There is a lovely outdoor sitting area where we spent mornings with our coffee and evenings. One evening we elected to have a cheese, pate, and wine dinner here. In great spirit of hospitality, our proprietor, joined us each evening offering wine, a fire, and wonderful wildlife stories (still sorry to say we missed the bear!).
The room was quite comfortable on the bottom portion of the house, facing out to the bay. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of options of hot and cold cereals, yogurts, coffee, tea, juices, bread for toasting, and fruit. In addition every morning at 8, the proprietor brought warm croissants and fabulous fresh fruit (this was different each day).
Ursula, the proprietor, was extremely helpful in many ways. First since we were traveling with friends and had been slow to book, she was full for one of the three days we wished to stay there. She was very helpful in connecting us with the visitor center who found us a place for our first night within an hour of contacting them. She was also a wealth of information about local restaurants, sights, and tours. Unfortunately, we were forgetful enough to forget our binoculars, and she has gone out of her way to return them to us.
We would recommend this setting to individuals interested in a quiet, rustic setting, with ample opportunity to view wildlife.
