We stayed at the Hope and Glory at the end of July. We booked last minute and we took what they had left. A VERY small room on the top floor. It was clean and nicely furnished but you couldn't move. The bathroom was a closet. One person could barely fit in it.
The Innkeepers are lovely. They can't be nice enough. We were there the weekend of the second annual crab festival which we wanted to attend (it was across the street from the Inn). It was sold out and I assumed since the Hope and Glory was serving wine (more on this in a moment) we thought they would find us tickets. No such luck.
Hope & Glory runs a vineyard about a mile away from the Inn. It is also lovely. There are small cottages you can rent there as well. That's where the pool is. In the middle of the woods off property. Something they don't mention on their website.
As vineyard owners you would think when you checked in you might get free passes to a wine tasting. Not even a glass of complimentary wine.
I'm not a B &B snob, but honestly for the amount of money we paid per night, there should at least be cookies or wine and cheese at some point in the afternoon. Nothing.
This is a lovely B &B - it's just too expensive for what you get.
