The owners of MPI are a young, hardworking and talented couple that are completely devoted to the comfort of their guests. They are friendly and helpful, but stay quietly in the background unless needed. The breakfast is tremendous! The room was quiet, clean and bug-free (not easy in south Florida). It is a few steps from a beautiful stretch of beach. I was there to visit my ill sister and MPI became my peaceful island to come back to after long stays at the hospital. This is now my place to stay when I'm in south Florida. Thank you Chris, Michelle and Cady. I will see you again soon!
What a delightful place to stay! We booked this place because we wanted something extra special for our 10th wedding anniversary. This lovely place and especially our hideaway suite exceeded our expectations. We only wished we could stay longer. Our friendly hosts made us feel right at home. Chris has outstanding culinary skills and our ample breakfast was incredibly delicious.(Also the brownies! Decadent!) It is just a short walk across the street and down a path to the ocean. We will be recommending this B&B to all our family & friends.
We had a one night stay and even during the short time I felt as we were part of the family. Very friendly owners who welcome you into their home with open arms. Casual and comfortable style, cozy room and nice to have doors onto the patio area. Nice refreshments on offer 24/7. Good breakfast with plenty of lovely food. We will come back and enjoy a longer break and recommend the Inn to anyone looking for a refreshing change to the standard chain hotels.
The perfect weekend getaway hosted by the friendly and extremely welcoming owners of The Melon Patch. You feel right at home in this comfy, relaxing atmosphere. Amazing variety of freshly prepared food in the morning. Very acomidating to guests needs for local features. We look forward to our next retreat at this hidden jewel.
Have been staying there for years, the place is really cleaned up, breakfast was the best, and they were flexible with my departure time. Will be back again with my staff. My best to the new owners... Rich D.
So glad the new owners have heart into this venture, and was very glad as this place is a little piece of heaven left along the Florida coast. I urge anyone looking to get back to the old florida feel stop and stay and you will not want to leave. Have been coming here for years since I sold my home nearby Rich D
First time at a B&B or Inn.. such a great place, very welcoming, very accommodating.. Rooms are large, well kept and bathrooms are clean and fresh. Great area, beautiful beaches and very relaxing..
I stayed at the Mellon Patch for 5 days and was very pleased with my stay Chris, Michelle and Katy are wonderful hosts and very relaxed and accommodating I've already recommended this B and B to my sister, whose coming in May!
Upon our arrival the owner met my husband and me at the door of the Inn and immediately made us feel at home. Chris and Michele were fabulous hosts, served great breakfasts, and made good recommendations for dinner restaurants. However, you do have to drive a few miles to get to the restaurants. The Inn is a lovely place with a beautiful back patio area and can accommodate families, wedding groups, and individuals. The beach is only a short walk across the street and through a nice state park.
We needed a break from reality. Peace and tranquillity was what we were looking for and we found it at Thr Mellon Patch Inn. It was just what the doctor ordered. Rest and relaxation in a gorgeous, homey environment. Can't wait to go back. Breakfast was perfect too.
My wife and I had a fantastic 4 day stay at this friendly little Inn. New owner could not have been more accommodating to us and his morning breakfast was outstanding every day. One block from the beach. Rooms nice and clean.
The Mellon Patch Inn is just pure paradise! It is peaceful and serene directly across from the ocean! Lots of sandy beaches and manatees swimming out back near the dock! For a quiet getaway and comfortable beds and a delicious breakfast it can't be beat! We attended a wedding there and it was fabulous!
We had a great time, Emily and Rich were very accomidating to our low carb diet ad mde us feel very much at home. The beach is just across the road and the property inback is very quiet and private. We will return many more times.
The new owners, Rich and Emily, are delightful! Breakfast was yummy, the inn is decorated so adorable and it felt like a home away from home. The location is perfect with the beach across the street and intercoastal in the back yard. I can't wait to return in a couple of months!
The property was in a bit of a renovation phase, as they are putting in a pool and spa. Even so, a very comfortable stay. The owner, Kathy, is serious about cleanliness and very available to her guests. And she's very creative. The pics on the websites don't do the property justice - it's a bit eclectic but very comfortable and tastefully Floridian. Breakfast was different each morning. All the fruit was fresh and luscious. Kathy's cooking was homey, healthy and tasty. Great stay!
