On an island awash with resort hotels, it is nice to find a B&B full of such character, with four-course breakfasts and high tea included in the rates. It is under new management as of 2014, but aims to retain the homey air of the early-20th-century Bajan manse from which it was carved. It is not on the beach, but there is a free shuttle to one. Each room is unique: The coral stone–walled Bananaquit Corner and wood-floored Hummingbird Nook both have large covered decks overlooking the lagoon-style swimming pool in the lush gardens. The Captain’s Quarters come with marble finishings and the best ocean views. The Butterfly Room has no A/C, but there is a fan and (nice touch) mosquito netting draped over the four-poster twin bed. The two largest rooms—the Mignonette with its mahogany furnishings and the Island Room with its sleigh bed—share a bathroom. Then there is the Carriage House, a one-bedroom suite with a king-sized bed and a living/dining room decorated in grand old Bajan style.
