The Mermaids' Porch feels like you're visiting your favorite aunt. You'll immediately feel comfortable, slightly spoiled, but not intruded upon.

Located in a lovely Queen Anne Victorian home built in 1898, the bed and breakfast has three cozy rooms for the world weary traveler to tuck in and rejuvenate.

The home is decorated in a sophisticated eclectic fashion by the well-traveled innkeeper.

Comments on the Military and Business Ownership...

There are no crises; there are opportunities to shine. During my very first guests' stay, I had to give a tornado briefing at 0100. I calmly explained actions to take and answered questions. Because I was prior military, it boosted their confidence in me. They knew I would do whatever it took to keep them safe. The military provided me plenty of practice briefing, experience in logistics and tactical planning/execution, and honed my leadership skills.
