Just back from a very restful and invigorating three evenings at the Edith Pearl. Our only regret: we did not bring our German shepherd this time. (He stayed at his kennel/spa while we got away.) But we will next visit, as he would romp with Hawkeye and Oreo in the fenced yard or spend quality time with Deb's dog-sitter, Melissa, down the road.
The "Farm Coast" of RI and SE MA is some of the most gorgeous scenery in New England, with cool breezes off the Sakonnet and Rhode Island Sound. Plus, proximity to those purveyors of real North Carolina BBQ -- The Back Eddy at Westport Point.
Deb is a gracious and generous hostess, a dog lover, trainer and savant. Her inn is located next to two farm stands, so after her delicious breakfast you can simply walk next door (Young's) or across the street (Walker's/Wilma's) for fresh fruit and produce -- and in the case of Wilma's, coffees, pastries and sandwiches.
At breakfast we met the other guests, a couple with their sweet Sato. Very nice people as dog people tend to be ... and as for the Sato, as someone said, "The average dog is a nicer person than the average person!"
