I did not know what to expect when we arrived. But the moment we stepped foot onto the property, I felt like I was home. Fresh baked cookies and absolutely the best lemonade. The owner Erik, is simply amazing, very informative, friendly, like the Big Brother type. The rooms were comfortable and clean. I am sooooo happy to have vacationed at this Bed and Breakfast. Looking forward to making this my annual spot. Kudos to Oak Bluffs Inn, job well done!!
