My recent stay with Gwendolyn and Dennis at Grandview B & B was truly one of the most memorable and enjoyable trips I have ever experienced. I planned my stay several months ago, with the help of Gwendolyn, to have an aquatic yoga experience with many "Mermaid Sisters." She was instrumental in making my stay all that more a pleasure, even helping me to arrange comfortable and safe transportation to and from the airport. My room and their entire B & B is adorned with beautiful and historical artifacts of the home's period and comforting corners could be found to rest, relax, or socialize, both inside and outside. Rooms were cleaned and tidied up daily. I loved the wrap around porch and beautiful, warm salt water pool area and took advantage of the setting for some very relaxing swims. Gwendolyn, Dennis and their staff went out of their way to make each guest feel comfortable and "at home." Home cooked breakfast and social snacks were served and were delicious. When I asked for information about the area, I was given wonderful suggestions as to where to walk and visit. I met new friends and made plans in my head to return when I can with more members of my family. This was one of the very best traveling and learning experiences I have ever had and I am grateful to all the staff at Grandview B & B who made us all feel like family. I hope to plan a return visit in the near future. Thank you Gwendolyn and Dennis! If I could give you ten stars, I would!!!
