The Windover Inn Bed & Breakfast is a gorgeous and immaculately clean home that is exceedingly well maintained — both inside and out. We stayed in the Atlantic and found it comfortable, roomy, and peaceful. We especially loved the exposed brick in our bathroom, and the adjustable showerhead (with great water pressure!) was a godsend for both my tall husband and petite me.
The innkeepers, Glenn and Jen, were great and really went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. For example, I'm a vegetarian, and they made a tofu scramble for me one breakfast, and imitation bacon (which I love) the next day — and they still made the real stuff for my husband. The chocolate chip scones were unbelievable and made a scone lover out of me.
The grounds are small but beautiful. There's a fire pit, gazebo with swing, hammock, and a large wrap-around porch with ample seating to unwind after a day of hiking or to drink coffee or tea before breakfast.
Most conveniently, there's a coffee/tea/cocoa station on each floor, so we were able to enjoy warm beverages at any time. There's also a mini-fridge, which we were able to use to keep our drinks cold, and a microwave with complimentary popcorn.
The Windover Inn is located just a short drive from the quaint small-town shops and restaurants of Main Street. The innkeepers were happy to provide local menus, maps with directions, and information to help us plan activities. Great place to stay!
