Skip Sigler never planned on getting into the hospitality trade. But when he left corporate America after 20 years, he and his wife Ruth turned their lovely, spacious home on Marblehead Neck into a B&B. Less than a year into their venture, the Seagull Inn B & B was fully booked with patrons eager to schmooze away the morning with Skip, who turned out to be a natural-born host with a remarkable gift of gab. The rooms are lovely, sun-drenched spaces with tasteful decor, and the stellar attraction is an apartment suite for five with access to a rooftop deck offering vistas of the ocean and Marblehead.
