This has to be the most welcoming place we have ever stayed! Romana and Charles welcomed us into their home with hugs as if we were family. Their home is beautiful, warm, charming and quite comfortable. Of course, breakfast was delectable! We will definitely be going back! We have already recommended it to our family and friends!!

Armistead Cottage is a fun B & B recommended to us by a friend who had stayed there the previous year with his wife and we're so glad to have taken his advice along with the many positive reviews we discovered on Trip Advisor. Romana was running it with the help of her cousin, who proved very attentive to our...

Romana and Charles, the proprietors of Armistead Cottage, run a beautifully-decorated, inviting B&B. Charles handled our reservation over the phone, and after chatting about cats, followed up via email. We arrived on Saturday morning, several hours in advance of check in. Romana greeted us and informed us that our room was ready. After dropping off our luggage, Romana gave us...

This is such a lovely B&B that I would recommend it in a heartbeat. Romana is a very friendly and generous hostess. Charles we did not meet as he was travelling in Italy (lucky chap). The beds are comfortable, the breakfast tasty and the porch inviting. Don't forget to ask Romana to show you her beautiful stained glass creations. I...

Located in a quiet neighborhood with lovely homes all around Armistead Cottage definitely fit the bill. Traveling alone, I was looking for a good place to relax but still be able to get to popular attractions quickly and with ease. A quick walk gets you to Easton's Beach, which I enjoyed in the evening to read a book before the...

I don't normally get sappy, or provide reviews for anything, but this is from the heart. We have stayed with Romana and Charles 5 or 6 times. They provide a fun, interesting and comfortable place to stay with a great breakfast every morning. What they do that no other B&B we have ever stayed at has done is make us...

My husband and I have been to Armistead Cottage twice and we can't wait to go back! The entire decor is so warm and inviting. Our room was clean and spacious.
