I found the Terrace Inn on line when I was loooking for a special place in which to celebrate my birthday. It surpassed my expectations! That was in 2004. Since that initial stay, I have stayed there over 20 times - whenever I want a relaxing, pampered get-a-way. My partner and I have stayed at the Terrace Inn (and my daughter) in all seasons and have always had a wonderful time. The rooms are quaint, well-decorated and comfortable. I loved the ambiance, the old world style and quiet charm. I also loved the choice to have a
TV in your room(not my choice !) and no phone. My idea of a vacation is to get away from the busy life we lead and just relax. My partner and I both enjoy that we have the time to talk to one another without our daily lives getting in the way. Just sitting on the porch or walking through beautiful Bayview has a calming effect. Once there, you have the privileges of being a Bayview resident. We have crossed the bridge and watched the fireworks from the rocks on July 4th, we have taken sleigh rides in the winter and attended a Murder Mystery weekend with our daughter. We spent New Year's Eve there last year which was one of the most enjoyable New Year's that we have spent in a long time. We have introduced many friends to the Inn and they have all given us rave reviews. The staff are all helpful and very friendly. The rooms are clean and welcoming. The included breakfasts are ample and the food at dinner time is fantastic! The Terrace Inn boasts a varied menu which is superb in taste and presentation. I assure you that if you want a lovely vacation to entice the senses while allowing you to get away from the "rat race" pf daily living, spend a few nights at the Terrace Inn. Even after 2 or 3 nights, you will feel as though you have had a much longer vacation. My partner and I always come home rested, relaxed and looking at the calendar to book our next trip back.
