Payne's Harbor View Inn is beautifully situated to look out on the water from the balcony of your room or the beautiful deck at the back of the house. The home was spotlessly clean and rooms were spacious. I would go again in a heartbeat. It was a pleasant walk into town where there were quaint shops and restaurants for...

There were several weddings going on this past weekend and some businesses already have closed, so it was slim pickings for a place to stay, but we stumbled upon Payne's Harbor View and I'm so glad we did! It is located just shy of a mile outside the main strip in town and is located near a couple of restaurants...

The reason I am giving this a 4 instead of a 5 is because it was so difficult to make a reservation. I called more than once, left messages did not get a response and you can not reserve online. Took me three days to finally make a reservation and I am glad I did. My girlfriend tried to make...

Stayed here just one night but it was lovely. We had the suite at the top level which has a huge jacuzzi in the room. Our bed was king sized and oh so comfortable. We could stretch and move without bothering each other! So nice to come back to after a long day in the sun! We sat out on...

We stayed at Payne's Harbor View for 3 nights. We chose it for it's location because we had friends arriving by boat to New Harbor. The Inn is at the top of a hill so the views are wonderful: porches all around the house and plenty of shade. It was HOT the first day but the breeze and the ceiling...

Paynes is a very quiet B&B just outside of town, maybe a half mile but still walkable to town and the beach. This was our 2nd year staying there. We have been coming to BI for over 25 years and have stayed in 3 other inns I would not recommend (see my other reviews) and a house. Paynes is the...

This is one of my favorite places to visit and have been staying here every summer for the past 8 years. Carol (the owner) and her family do an amazing job of making you feel like this is your home.
