Very happy

We were warmly greeted at check-in and provided vouchers for breakfast at the Bay Back Cafe for each morning of our stay. Our spacious room, one of 23, was situated on the second floor and included a king-size bed, fireplace, refrigerator and a semi private deck overlooking the beautifully tendered gardens that were often alive with monarch butterflies and hummingbirds. The large windows to the rear of our room provided an excellent view of the bay including numerous brown and white pelicans, a variety of shorebirds and an osprey surveying its hunting grounds from atop a tree.

Included in the room rate is a nightly help-your-self wine reception that included a trio of wines plus olives and bread sticks. One evening while enjoying a glass of wine on the patio we met the owner, Bill, who was very cordial and explained how he had just purchased an additional 100 plants to enhance the already beautiful gardens throughout the property.

Breakfast at the Bay Back Cafe was very good though the number of choices are somewhat limited. There is also a fine dining restaurant, Blue Heron, on the property that has a spacious patio where we dined twice during our four night stay.

In summary, we were very happy with the service, room quality and amenities.

Highly Recommend!!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Back Bay Inn. The Inn itself is lovely. The room was vert clean and had all that we needed. We stayed in a second floor room and it was very spacious with spectacular views. The Inn provides complimentary breakfast at their cafe next door (which was healthy and delicious) along with wine and snacks in the evening. The location is ideal whether you're looking to get away to relax or venture out and explore. Jess, the host during our stay, was super friendly, loaded with information and made our stay extra special. Thank you Back Bay Inn, we plan to see you again soon!!

Laid back and loved it

Such a quaint, hidden gem of a place that feels like you truly got away from it all. Great, open spaces for kids but look out for some older guests who didn't seem to think that kids belonged there since it a small, intimate place but I don't put that on the hotel at all. We loved this spot. Bring a sweatshirt though as I never thought it got that chilly but I was loving it!
