Atlantic News...🍾

Hello - JB and I are super excited to announce that The Atlantic Inn has just received a Tripadvisor Traveler's Choice Award 2023 - the coveted award celebrates businesses that have consistently received great traveler reviews on Tripadvisor over the last 12 months, placing these winners among the top 10% of all listings on Tripadvisor worldwide (the world's largest travel platform)!

As this is only the start of our 3rd season as inn owners (and complete newbies to this industry), we're more than happy with this achievement 😊

Here are just a sample of the reviews on Tripadvisor that helped us achieve our award....

There will never be a better place to stay! John and Pam have done an amazing job in rehabilitating and decorating a very old inn, and their personal and caring touches greet every visitor the moment you walk through the door. You will be greeted by name, personally shown your beautiful room, all amenities explained, the common areas are delightful with family games, a library, areas to read, relax, or watch tv, lovely outside areas, close beach access, and absolutely the best breakfasts ever! Plus John and Pam are so delightful to just hang around and chat with, and returning guests are given a discount. This is our third time staying here, each time we decide to stay more nights than the last time, and we will soon be returning even though it is quite the drive from home. There is just no where anything like this, and it is SO special!

Date of stay: March 2023

Out of all the Bed & Breakfast I have stayed at, the Atlantic has moved to the top of my list. My fiancee and I had a wonderful stay. Our room was clean, cozy, and inviting. But, the best thing about our stay were the innkeepers, Pam and John. They make you feel like family. It was home away from home. We will definitely be back. The hospitality is top notch and their breakfast is excellent.

Date of stay: April 2023

This Inn was cozy, charming and full of warmth. It is indeed a hidden gem. Friendly and helpful hosts. Perfectly decorated rooms with some eclectic accessories . An old time inn with modern amenities. The bed was sooooo cozy. Breakfast was delish! John lent me a beach chair and showed me the outdoor shower to get cleaned off. The outdoor sitting area is also cozy but staged to accommodate numbers of guests. The minute I walked through the doors I felt totally relaxed and rejuvenated. I'll stay again. You should come visit!

Date of stay: May 2023

After an absolutely fantastic start to our season, JB and I are definitely back in our groove......and looking forward to seeing our many returning friends, and also introducing the "Atlantic Effect" to lots of new guests!

Hope to see you soon!

Take Care,

Love and Hugs,

Pam & JB

To check out The Atlantic Inn, please go to:

PS. A few pics, including a couple of Pumpkin for his fans...😊

After swapping the latest gossip with Nicomedes the gnome (Nic to his friends) Pumpkin needed some quiet time to chill....and theAtlantic's Front Porch is one of his fave spots to snooze 💤

Speaking of chilling out...the Courtyard Deck is the best place to partake of this particular pastime

Some of our new friends enjoying the tranquility of the deck

With my love of games, I couldn't resist getting Connect 4 for the Courtyard Deck

With Pumpkin getting a mention earlier....Bailey and Bodie wanted to show you their new toy....courtesy of their good friend and "Innsider" Maryellen Rhodes 💕

"The ocean soothes my soul like nothing else can...

Magically transported to another dimension of time and space

-where there is complete harmony with nature,

and time becomes an irrelevant measure

I'm not young, nor am I old

There is a perpetual sense of hope and happiness

I'm at peace with myself, and all that surrounds me

The sun rises....the sun sets

The tide comes in....the tide goes out

There is perfect balance in my Atlantic world"
