The owners Carol and George are engaging, warm, caring and helpful. They shared tips/info about the island and made sure to make my brother and I feel very welcome.
Our stay did not start smoothly - their staff forgot to clean the room my brother and I had reserved, so we were switched to a different room. Soon after, the bathroom ceiling started leaking due to the huge flash flood storm going on, and it shorted out the bathroom light. It was cold and we could not figure out how to turn the heat on. The pillows were flatter than I prefer. But, the mattress was a good balance of soft/firm and the comforter kept us warm enough. In the morning when we told them about all this (we had gotten there around 8-9pm), they apologized profusely and went out of their way to make it up to us. Breakfast was quite delicious. They seemed genuinely upset that our experience had not been better. P.s. Unlike BGHL3, we did not see any roaches.
Overall, the dining room and sitting room are absolutely beautiful and well-taken care of, but the bedroom units themselves could use some renovation. All in all though, if we are ever able to return to Dauphin Island I WOULD STAY WITH THEM AGAIN. You don't find such incredibly genuine people around much anymore!!! Also, the location is perfect, and although the price may seem steep considering the character of the rooms, it is a deal compared to the options/prices elsewhere on this island.
By the way, they are hoping to retire soon, so you could contact them if you are interested in running a Bed & Breakfast :)
