I prayerfully introduced Ms. Elsie’s Caribbean Bed & Breakfast to the community in September, 2000.  We dedicated this home in honor of my grandmother, our matriarch, and my best friend, Ms. Elsie.  God’s grace has blessed us with the love of a phenomenal woman, and I now find myself compelled to share this jewel of a woman, her love, legacy and our friendship with the world.  Our story is special and our home is unique.  Ms. Elsie’s Caribbean Bed & Breakfast is simply, a home born out of love between a grandmother and granddaughter.   The ambiance is serene, and it invites joy, peace, and love to the soul. Every guest in our Inn, has fallen in love with the spirit of the Inn, its history, and the intimacy.  All come seeking a need to laugh, relax, rest, feel whole, feel connected, pampered, and nurtured, and we do it all very well at Ms. Elsie‘s.   Our guests can relax in the Generations room, where there is cable television, a large cushy sofa and chairs, or they can retreat to the Aloe Vera sunroom. All of our guests are welcome to retreat and relax in this beautifully spacious room where breakfast is also served, surrounded by large picture windows and elegant tropical décor.  Guests may read, have moments of reflection, laugh, converse, listen to island music, dance, “do de’ limbo”, or play cards or board games. We invite you to make yourself comfortable and at home.   Ms. Elsie’s is a “Tropical Hideaway” that warmly welcomes and spoils you with island hospitality and delicious tropical treats, so that when it is time to go, you don’t want to leave us!
