Because of its stupendous view of Simpson Bay and the simple but comfortable rooms with creative decor, this lovely guesthouse is widely considered the best on this side of the island. Its virtues are many, but the one thing that keeps patrons coming back year after year is the hospitality of owner Betty Vaughn (ask her how the inn got its name). Treating her numerous return guests like long-lost relatives, she is so welcoming that you simply can't resist her charms. Ditto
her high school beau, Phil, recently reunited with her in marriage after a 52-year wait after both lost beloved spouses. It's no wonder you really feel like you are visiting the beach house of your favorite aunt. Book early, because the Toad fills up fast, but know that smoking is not allowed at all. The ground level is wheelchair-accessible.
