We had a wonderful time at Ave Maria B& B. We had the chance to witness the automated milking of the 700 dairy cows. What an operation!!! Maria was a great hostess - good breakfasts and good suggestions as to doing things we'd like to do. Only one comment. There was no mirror to face when I blew dried my hair. One near a socket would be helpful.

My mother, sister and I enjoyed our stay at this wonderful B&B! We had a lovely large room with 3 beds and the best shower of our entire trip. Mary is a gem and we had a very yummy breakfast. We didn't witness the milking of the cows but we did see the impressive line of 700 cows moving to a pasture in the morning. Having a pub nearby along the ocean was a plus too. Thank you!
