Statyed at Peter Shields just after Christmas a year ago. Our room was great which offered a side view of the ocean. The breakfast were amazing. The staff were delightful and helpful. We enjoyed our stay so much that we are returning in April for a few days.

We got married on a Saturday and wanted to have a "mini moon"for a few nights prior to heading back to work. PSI was perfect with great service, friendly staff, and food that blew us away.

The staff, food and accommodations were excellent. Could not have asked for a better weekend. I did not want to leave😄. Would highly recommend this Inn to anyone. Will be returning soon. Parking was easy. Great beach access. Loved relaxing on the rockers on the front porch. Cannot forget the complimentary breakfasts every morning.
