This B & B is a cut above. My wife, 12-year-old son, and I spent several days here. The excellent hospitality began the moment we drove up and lasted until we received a sincere "farewell" from Bill, one of the gracious owners.
The accommodations in the "Shell Seeker" room were very comfortable. The view out of two large sliding glass doors was over the pristine marsh leading toward historic and beautiful Sapelo Island. An enormous deck, tastefully decorated in a variety of attractive potted plants and bird feeders, was just outside of these doors. Outdoor seating was abundant and comfortable. Three small docks overlooked the salt marsh. Our favorite featured a porch swing and plenty of shade from which to view water fowl and other wildlife.
Each morning we were greeted with an outstanding and truly beautiful breakfast, complete with fresh fruit, coffee, a selection of juices, and many types of tea. It was a real treat to see what we would be presented with each morning. Homemade buttermilk pancakes, French toast with a hint of lime, sweet potato pancakes, and an excellent breakfast quiche are examples, along with scrambled eggs and bacon.
The hosts gave us plenty of space, yet they were always there for our questions concerning local attractions, restaurants, and recommendations of things we might have otherwise missed. Also, their collection of books on local history, literature, and many other topics is expansive and useful.
This is an excellent place for a vacation, or just a quick getaway.
