If you're seeking an alternative to the big blockbuster resorts directly on the Grand Strand in Myrtle Beach, this inn is worth a look. It might be called a bed & breakfast, although it's more like a small romantic hotel than anything else. There are 15 rooms in total, each with their own sense of style and décor. Faves include the "Roaring 20s" suite, which has antique mahogany furniture, and the "London Bridge" suite, with its four-poster bed. On the breakfast side, the morning repast always features a quiche or casserole, along with a range of pastries and a fresh fruit plate. Folks out for pelagic pursuits will note that an after-breakfast swim can be had only 300 yards away on the beach. As a final note of hospitality, owner Phil Mullins is a chatty guy and he's a good source of information about things to do in the area.
