We recently spent four nights at the Black Dolphin Inn. From the moment we arrived we knew it was special. A large porch greets you before entering the common area. The owners spared no expense in remodeling this area. Attention to detail is amazing. We were greeted by the owner/manager and immediately experienced the caring and friendly attitude that carried on throughout our stay.
We stayed in the “Bay View Suite” and it was perfect. The large sleeping area and separate sitting area were very comfortable, and again, the attention to detail was seen everywhere.
The balcony, facing the intracoastal, was the perfect place for morning coffee. The breakfasts were very gourmet. We especially liked the pumpkin pancakes and breakfast casserole.
The private dock made for a perfect evening for sipping wine and watching the numerous dolphins rolling by.
Anyone looking for a pampered, relaxing get away in an awesome setting should head to the Black Dolphin Inn.
