Spent 3 nights at the Fig Street Inn. It as fabulous. Room was gorgeous and very comfortable. Food was fantastic (muffins home made and served right from the oven). Owner recommended great restaurants for dinner. Could not have found a better place to stay. Hope to get back there. There is nothing I can say bad about the entire experience... More

We choose the Fig Street Inn based on the many positive reviews and we were not disappointed. Our only disappointment was we only had enough time to stay one night. Greg greeted us at the door and we felt welcomed from the start. He showed us around and to our room which was the Barnegat Room. There is a private... More

The drive south doesn't have to be long and arduous when you spend a day or two at the Fig Street Inn. It is a beautifully restored home with comfortably furnished rooms on a lovely property and amazing attention to every detail. Greg took great care of us with a delicious home-made breakfasts and many suggestions plus much interesting history... More

Stayed there for our anniversary. Very hospitable, spacious and the food and presentation was solid! Visit local town pub for music and good food and atmosphere-walk to the beach and catch the sunset! We'll stay again.

We were here with 3 other couples to attend a wine tasting at the Gull Hummock. We were greeted warmly by Greg(our new friend) and shown our room. Because we were there with three other couples, we got to see all the rooms. Each one was immaculate, beautifully decorated and so inviting. Greg is so easy to talk with, and... More

Came up for oyster festival at Chatham Vineyards. Rooms clean, comfortable and inviting. Plenty of books and games for relaxing if you're so inclined. Walking distance to downtown Cape Charles. Greg was an excellent host. Great breakfast and they're willing to accommodate dietary restrictions. I would go again without hesitation.

This is not our first time staying at a B&B, but The Fig Street Inn was by far the nicest. We were in the area for a College game in Norfolk but wanted to stay somewhere quaint, Cape Charles was perfect. We booked two nights and stayed a third. We stayed in The Boston Harbor Suite which was great. Very... More

We are so thrilled you could extend your stay, and enjoy time on both the Eastern Shore and across the bridge in Norfolk. Greg doesn't get out on his bike as much as he would like, so it's fun for him to plan cycling routes for our guests. Glad you had great weather and could soak in our scenery. More

Though we were only in the Cape Charles area overnight, from the nearby breathtaking cotton fields ready for harvest to the easy to find address of the Fig Street Inn to the beautiful large sycamore trees on the property to the warm greeting of Donna to the amazingly rebuilt interior of the stately old house to the tasty full breakfast...

You were here at a great time. The cotton fields are so beautiful right before harvest and it's one of our favorite things to see. They were picked that week so your timing was perfect!

I spent one night at Fig Street Inn recently, on a brief vacation. I am not always a fan of B&B's, but this was a wonderful experience. The room was spotless, the bed was very comfortable and attractive, and I spent a long time relaxing in the soothing whirlpool bath in the bathroom. Breakfast was delicious, and there were coffee/tea/pop... More

Thank you for the great comments and we're so pleased you enjoyed our inn. We completely understand when people say they aren't typically b&b people. We don't have curfew, one breakfast time without meal options, wallpaper, doilies, converted closets for bathrooms, hallway baths, or furniture you can't use. We're about choice, contemporary design, open floor plans, large rooms, baths and... More

So this was my husband and I's first experience at a B&B, and now the bar is set VERY high for any other B&B we decide to try, although I would say that I really only want to stay here every time we go to Cape Charles. My husband planned this surprise weekend getaway for our 3rd anniversary and I... More

We loved that you were celebrating your 3rd anniversary and another couple was celebrating their 53rd that same weekend. How wonderful to have that at our breakfast table at one time and hear you share your stories with one another. Happy Anniversary and we wish you many, many more years of laughter and joy! More
