We first visited The Inn on the Bay in May, 1999 and greatly enjoyed the location, the hospitality of the owners, Normand and Louise and, of course, the St Lucia Jazz Festival.
When we decide to get married, it was an absolutely inspirational decision to go back to Marigot Bay. Our wedding party totalled 16 and all of the arrangements had to be done 'long distance' in advance of our arrival. Normand couldn't have been more helpful, both before we arrived and during our stay. He contacted the owner of the wedding venue, put us in touch with an outstanding caterer, organised a photographer, liased with lawyers about the marriage licence and still had time to be the perfect 'mine host' during our two weeks at the Inn.
Anyone looking to have a very special wedding against a backdrop of phenomenal beauty (Marigot Bay!) should get in touch with the Inn on the Bay. We have such wonderful memories of the day, that will surely be with us throughout our lives - thank you Normand and Louise for helping to create them!

A truly wonderful vacation!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!! The picture will be a treasured momento of a truly wonderful vacation! We cannot express enough how comfortable we felt and how your generosity knows no bounds...
One one hand we want to tell everyone we know about Inn on the Bay, but
then again we don't to spread the word so much that when the opportunity arises
for us to visit again you won't be able to find space for us... ha! ha! Our
secret haven in St. Lucia...
A remarkably memorable vacation!
We've been home in Chicago for a few days now and
every evening we look up at the moon and comment that it is also shining over
Marigot Bay. We will never forget the incredible experience of being your guests
at the Inn. As you know we are planning on coming back in 15 months and
have already convinced some of our friends and family to join us. Bob just
served me some pineapple which he cut exactly as Louise does. It is not
nearly as good, but brings back good memories. We will not eat mangos or
bananas for a while because we know we will be disappointed. Bob has complained
since we got home because there is no one to prepare his morning coffee,
muffins, and fruit!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay!
I would just like to say that Robert and I had the most wonderful time with you. You might remember me turning up for breakfast in my breeches! Enjoyed the riding! (photo attached!!!)
Normand, you are the most fantastic host. And a host with a sense of
humour. That doesn't happen very often! We really appreciated your
friendly and hospitable attitude. You must get fed up with collecting
people from the Bay at 10.00 every night!
The most beautiful place on the island!
We cannot thank you enough for your hospitality. Your home is lovely and you made us feel very welcome. Your assistance with booking our day trips and your advice on things to do and organizing and coordinating all the little extras allowed us to enjoy paradise and really relax!
We are still laughing at your jokes Normand, and Louise, we miss your breakfasts...don't usually take the time to eat in the morning at home. If you have a chance - could you e-mail me your recipe for your cheddar cheese muffins - Michael has not stopped raving about them.
We had a simply wonderful time. Booking our stay at the Inn on the Bay was the smartest thing we ever did, and we certainly chose the most beautiful place on the island. We will highly recommend your home to anyone we know who is planning to travel to St. Lucia, and please feel free to give our email address to any potential guests who are looking for information about staying with you.
Until we meet again....

A fabulous and unforgettable holiday!
Having now got back to the cold and wet UK, it really emphasises how much we enjoyed our time with you in Marigot Bay.
The idyllic location of the Inn (some of the best views we've ever seen!), the roguish humour of Normand and the wonderful friendliness of Louise (not to mention the muffins!) made for a fabulous and unforgettable holiday.
The Inn on the Bay can be recommended, without reservation, as one of the
best holidays anyone could ever wish for.

One of the best spots on the island!
Once again thanks for the excellent hospitality provided at The Inn on the Bay.
Without doubt this is one of the best spots on the island and provided a great base for a fantastic holiday.
We definitely hope to come back in the future and would highly recommend the hotel to anyone planning a trip to Saint Lucia.
You won't find more friendly hosts!!
Our best holiday ever!
are back in reality. It is cold and wet and we are both suffering from thermal
Our little slice of heaven in paradise!
We will recommend your wonderful Inn on the Bay to all of our friends. Needless to say, you both made us feel very much at home and comfortable!
Our room was lovely and we can't tell you how much we appreciated arriving and seeing that the windows have screens!! Not that your place had a single mosquito--it DID NOT--but there is something very comforting about opening the window and having a screen between oneself and the outside!
The breeze was absolutely wonderful and we slept very well every night.
Also, your Inn is perfectly located in a central position to visit all of
the sights and snorkeling spots on the island. We really enjoyed the
snorkel spot that you have at the foot of your stairs! The water at your
snorkel spot is very clear and calm.
Hope to see you again soon.

Marigot Bay is truly paradise!
Dear Louise and Normand... Merci beaucoup! Thank you so much for a very
We loved staying at your Inn and enjoyed your warm
hospitality. We will tell all our friends about your place and your quiet little
Our 2nd year in a row!
We have been wanting to get back with you and let you know what a good time we had again this year but got tied back into our work and everyday routine and let things slip.This was our 2nd year in a row and what a grand time we had, even better then last year!
This year we stayed 2 weeks which gave us the time to adventure with a
4-wheel drive on more of the back roads
The mornings at breakfast and evenings before dinner were spent with the other guests on the patio sharing their daily adventures and getting to know each other. Normand and Louise are wonderful hosts. You are in good hands here. Normand with early morning coffee and the anticipation of Lousie's chocolate bread. Superb. The weather is wonderful with comfortable tropical breezes and the occasional quick showers. Oh! don't forget steak night at the Shack in Marigot Bay. Ultimate place to relax and play.
Thanks again for a wonderful time,

Our second stay at the Inn On The Bay!
Mary and I loved our second stay at the Inn On The Bay. Normand and Louise were wonderful hosts as always. We enjoyed the morning breakfast consisting of coffee, fresh fruit, cheese, cereals, and homemade breads that Louise prepared every morning. Evenings were spent sitting on the deck drinking a French wine that Norman and Louise had selected for us.
Normand is a very humorous and entertaining host. Both he and Louise cater to their guests, which provides for a wonderful and relaxing vacation. There are many possible outings, which guests can enjoy. Since we had been to the southern part of the island on our first trip to St. Lucia, this time we enjoyed a day of sailing to Rodney Bay and Pigeon Point which Norman organized for us.
Though it is fun to see as much of the beautiful island of St. Lucia as possible, it is fantastic to return to the Inn on the Bay each evening to partake of this little bit of paradise. It is truly a very special place.

We now know what paradise looks like!
holiday at Marigot Bay was undoubtedly the best ever thanks to Normand and
Louise and of course, the other guests staying at The Inn on the Bay. The
views from the Inn were fantastic, and the accommodation excellent. Our
hosts hospitality, attention to our every need and the chauffeur service to the
bay really made our holiday.

We are hoping to come again next year!
We arrived home safe and sound last night about 1:00 a.m. We returned to below zero temperatures and 2" of snow. How rude!! At least it isn't supposed to last long.
I think last week at this time, we were about 1/2 way back up the steps that goes down to the Bay. We had to stop at all the benches. George had some questions for Dale to ponder on. :)
We had a most wonderful trip as we knew we would. The view at your Inn on the Bay is unbelievably magnificient and of course, the delicious breakfasts every morning shared with Mr. and Mrs. Bullfinch, among others, power lounging and playing cards by the pool, yours and Louise' gracious hospitality, not to mention humor, impressions, and lots of answers to almost any question one might have, made our stay even more enjoyable.
We will miss meeting at 6:00 p.m. for the Sunset Club. It is a great idea for the guests to "bond". I thought George and Dale did that well, didn't you? Thank you for all of your recommendations as to restaurants, making our reservations for the Jungle Tour, and anything else we needed.
You and Louise made our vacation to St. Lucia even more relaxing and enjoyable because we didn't have to worry or stress about where to go, what to do, etc. -- an added feature that most B&B's don't bother with, unfortunately.
Once again, we all had a most wonderful vacation at Inn on the Bay and we are hoping to come again next year, same time, same place. We'll keep in touch and thanks again for everything.
Regards to you both,
Carole & Dale Pashea - St. Albans, MO, USA
