My husband and I stayed in this lovely bed and breakfast and fell in love! The home was built in around the 1900s and all the decor shows it. The owners have taken such good care of it. Rooms were clean and so was the bathroom. I felt like I was home away from home. We will definitely be back!

This was hands down one of the best places to stay ever! The location is perfect and a little more secluded for less noise. The Inn was immaculate inside and out. The attention to detail was awesome from the outside landscaping to the most comfortable beds ever. The breakfast was as if you woke up in the morning to your...

Rooms are gorgeous and very comfortable. Yard & patio are fabulous. Host(s) are awesome. Food (breakfast & last night cookies) are the best. Although this is the oldest home on PIB, you would never know it! Totally remodeled and decorated beautifully.

Love this place! Very warm, inviting and charming! Staff is extremely friendly and the location is perfect, not too far from all of the action. We very much enjoyed breakfast. Only complaint is the the beds - need some new comfy mattresses, otherwise, we will definitely stay here again!

Really enjoyed our stay at this bread and breakfast. I would definitely recommend it to couples looking for a quiet and tidy place to stay. The gazebo was one of our favorite hangouts and the food was good.

My girlfriend and I stayed in the White Birch Room at The Getaway Inn for a weekend wedding on the island. Let me start by saying that we came in through Cleveland to catch up with some friends, and were running much later than expected, but Danny was very flexible with our arrival time and worked with us with no...

I found the Anchor Inn in a roundabout way: I was camping and had an accident while jet-skiing. I stopped by the island's emergency services office. I was Ok, but worn out and covered in bruises. I couldn't bear the thought of heading back to the tent, so I asked the EMT if he knew of a good and inexpensive...

Lovely place, very comfortable beds and relaxing environment. Only wish we could have stayed longer - absolutely will be back. The inn keepers were very accommodating and easy to contact. Great location near town, but not too near.

Joey and Bill are wonderful people who obviously thoroughly enjoy people. The rooms are clean and lovely the beds are very comfortable and the breakfasts are scrumptious. We got together with our kids (30's) who live in Chicago. We live in Pittsburgh so it's nearly halfway. The Anchor Inn is right in the middle of things so walks to restaurants...

Wonderful, homey, quiet place to stay while at the Bay. Spent three nights and three breakfasts at the Anchor and all were great. Spacious room with attached bath, comfy shared areas, and breakfast that was perfect each morning after a night of fun. We stayed in the Stateroom in the front of the house. They will be doing some renovations...
