Thank you so much Christine for writing a review. I am so happy that you enjoyed my place. I am glad you and your husband had time to relax. Too bad that you can't be here now, the gardens are more beautiful than in March. Everything is in full bloom. Maybe next time. Hope to see you again, all the best, Elke, Mill Bay Shores B&B

My wife and I selected Mill Bay Shores on a last minute decision to get away for the weekend. Mill Bay Shores was a well priced inviting B&B. We booked and were not disappointed. Elke runs a fab B&B. The breakfasts were delicious. It was very comfortable and peaceful.
