I prayerfully introduced Ms. Elsie's Caribbean Bed & Breakfast to the world 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 me 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 a home born out of love between a grandmother and granddaughter. So we invite you to come and "Celebrate Life" with us!
The ambiance at Ms. Elsie's is serene, inviting love, peace, and joy to the soul. Every guest visiting our Inn has fallen in love with the spirit of the Inn, its history, and its intimacy. Some come seeking a need to rest, relax, and rejuvenate. Some come to rekindle relationships while getting away from it all. Many come to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, reunions, sisterhoods, and friendships, as well as many couples come to celebrate their life long friendships as they travel across the country together. Others come for a Caribbean experience without traveling across the waters.
Guests often relax in the Generations room, to enjoy a good movie and relax on the large comfy sofa, and chairs, and do absolutely nothing! Others may play board games, dominoes, tic tac toe, or bingo, play a serious game of Spades and have a great time with a delicious glass of our signature "Bajan (Barbados) Lemonade, our welcome drink, while enjoying some delicious island pastries made by Chef Cheryl.
Whatever the occasion or reason, we promise to take great care of you!
