Let me start out by saying that the proprietor of this B & B was very, very nice. We also loved the happy hour as it gave us something to do since it rained the entire long weekend that we stayed. And if you really enjoy meeting and chatting with others, the porch at this B & B is a great place to do it.
Having said that, I expected from the name and the info on the website that there would be more to the wine happy hour, instead of just "do you want red or white?" I guess I was led to believe there might be some education on what we were drinking, etc., which there was not (I'm big into wines which is why I selected this particular B & B). Which was fine, albeit a bit disappointing.
I was not thrilled with the breakfast - sorry, not a big "fruitie" - I prefer eggs done the way I like, regular french toast with maple syrup, home made breads, and the like. What we did get was strawberry soup and mushroom omelettes, french toast smothered with berries (ugh) and greek yogurt with peaches, and some kind of baked egg thing with an orange sauce on top (which I think was a roasted red pepper sauce). If you love your fruits, then this is certainly the place for you - not for me!
The room was OK - no view, but I expected that. It's very close to the beach and comfortable enough. I personally like when the sink is actually in the bathroom - Room 5's is not. Overall, just an OK place.
