I normally am not much of a fan of B&B's, but Sandy at the Winter Summer Inn may just change my mind.
Options for a stay in the area are extremely limited if you aren't camping, or heading to a fishing resort, and especially if you are only looking for one night's stay. WSI is definitely the place to go if you are looking for comfortable, clean, and convenient to the area's geography.
The B&B seems to be the back 2/3 of the house, and it is on the road side of the house (meaning, it is not water facing.) We arrived after dark, and I can't say I noticed a view of the water at all, but so much of the coastal drive is along the water that we didn't miss it at all.
We stayed in the Quilt Room, which features a queen sized bed and private full bathroom. Thoughtful touches are throughout, and like many b&bs it feels a bit like an overnight at your favorite grandmother's house.
We were the only guests, but had full access to the shared living room and full kitchen. This is where Sandy will cook for you in the morning, and she joined us for breakfast where we had a lovely chat. This would be a great option for people traveling as a group if you were able to take up the entire space just because it would lend itself very well to a group who knows each other well.
Sandy was also knowledgeable about the sites in the area, hours of operation, etc.
I do encourage you to plan ahead when traveling in the region to ensure that if you are planning on dining out that you can get to a restaurant prior to closing. Again, options are very limited and they may close as early as 7pm.
