Welcome To Our Our Kitchen
Face it - one of the best parts of a vacation is fabulous food. And who doesn't love to eat? Well, we love to cook here at the Island Guest House! Although bed and breakfasts are all known for serving breakfast, we mix it up with a little style, flair, and passion! Both the owners, Mark and Joanne, have been putting some real quality time into the kitchen. Our theory is this - provide the best ingredients, fresh local market produce, fresh herbs (many from our own garden), have a few signature dishes which will remind you of our Inn, create sumptuous, home-cooked breakfasts, which will coax you out of your rooms in the morning and intrigue and interest you. Oh, yes, and have lots of fabulous coffee all the time!
Of course, there are many other choices for breakfast here also. Our formal dining room is always set for an elegant breakfast option.
In the Reception room, we have intimate tables for two lit with candles under lovely Victorian Tiffany-style beaded glass chandeliers. A marble topped bar and credenza is where we greet you upon your arrival offer you a glass of wine during get togethers, and where on Tuesday mornings, we greet the Beach Haven Bed and Breakfast tour group and talk about the history of our Inn along with lemonade and "Olde Time" music from the player piano. Please feel free to play a tune while you are here. In the closet, a small Library of books and magazines are available for you to read including many on local history, including our Inn. An ice maker is also tucked away in there, handy for keeping your drinks cold at the beach.
The Sea Glass room is brand new and completely finished! What a great addition to our space! Located through the French doors off of the kitchen and opening into the garden, it is bright and sunny in the morning for breakfast. Check your email with a cup of coffee anytime, or browse on the internet. This is the heart of the WIFI, so your connection is always great. With its huge 60 inch flat screen TV, movie nights at the Inn are almost like the theater! We even make popcorn! Lots of times there is a great game, race, or special TV event that everyone wants to see, and large screen is the only way to go!
It is also a great venue for private parties, weddings, and reunions. As a private room it holds 36 persons and there have been many times where a scrapbooking group, retreat, business meeting, yoga retreat, or bridal or baby shower required a space to meet. It opens to the garden with its lighted patio/dance floor, and between it and the rest of the the interior, can hold up to 70 guests. Perfect for that inclement weather backup plan at a garden wedding or barbeque, too
You will enjoy a quaint and cozy atmosphere. Wicker and lace mixed with hand painted
furniture and stenciling evoke a breezy cottage charm. Wind chimes and ocean breezes
draw you to our large screened in sunroom full of wicker furniture; perfect for curling up
with a good book.
Outside in our courtyard wrought iron tables and chairs are shaded with market umbrellas for your comfort in daytime and lit with candles café style for evening gatherings. Relax anytime with chess, checkers, backgammon or other games in our common area.
"We offer an ideal retreat from today's hectic pace"
Cool off in the afternoon at tea time with refreshing pink lemonade or raspberry iced tea and tempting treats from the innkeepers kitchen. Join others in our family style dining room or choose an inn-timate candlelit table for two. Guests also love to take a tray onto our charming sunroom or courtyard.
