It seems we got one.

We were surprised thrilled to find out that we are named as one of the top ten innkeepers by The Best of Bedandbreakfast.com Awards 2010-2011. It is a tremendous honor to receive any kind of recognition after just a little over a year of operations. It’s also served to give us a goal for the future; to keep it up and strive to be the best.

So to bedandbreakfast.com and to everyone who has supported us in the past year and a half, we would like to say Thank You. From the bottom of our hearts.

Yes, this does come almost 2 weeks after the 4th but we have been super busy (which is a really good thing!) Our July 4th weekend was certainly no exception. If we had 60 rooms instead of 6, we still would have been booked solid (our apologies to all who called that we had to turn away).

We found out beforehand that all the local restaurants we recommend to guests were going to be closed that evening. The town had a celebration at the local high school and anyone could go there to get hamburgers and hot dogs but we felt we could offer an alternative. Hopefully a better one.

How?

 By having our own cookout! All our guests were getting along great with each other. It really felt like we were a group of lifelong friends getting together for the 4th like so many across the country do. We played lawn games:

And of course we had a great dinner. It was a little warm out so we ate inside but it was still a cookout 🙂

Thanks to all our guests that weekend who made this years 4th a wonderful, memorable one!

Owning a B&B is great. Owning one on the water is even better!

Why?

Seafood! Most notably the biggest oysters we’ve ever seen when we hosted a small oyster roast for friends the other day. We’ll let the pictures tell the story:

We can’t get by without them. The help from friends has been indispensable. Recently we had a visit from our friends from back in North Carolina Frank and Susannah Tuttle. We lured them in with the charm of our Inn:
