Chris was an excellent host. Our room was clean and we were instantly so relaxed being at Sea Gate. We enjoyed the multiple porches and that the house was a block from the beach. Can't beat the location or the price in Cape Charles. We will certainly be back!

This beautiful old house was built around 1912 and renovated to comfortably host guests. The guest rooms are on the second floor. Ours was a nice sized room with a very comfortable bed and a full bathroom. We were very pleased with how clean and well maintained everything looked. In the evening before we retired to our room, we sat... More

We could not have asked for a better experience! The hospitality and breakfast was a pure delight. Chris, the owner, made us feel right at home. Location was great. We walked to dinner, shopping and the beach.

Four houses down from the beach, you can't beat this location. Plus the owner is a long-time resident of Cape Charles and Vice Mayor! He knows everything there is to know and is hilarious to boot. We will definitely be coming back! Best B&B in Cape Charles for sure!

We hadn't been to a B&B in years, but had loved it on our last trip to Cape Charles 15+ years ago. The innkeeper, Chris, made us feel right at home. While it wasn't the luxury of a 5 star Marriott, it was clean, comfortable, and quirky like visiting your favorite uncle. We enjoyed our adventure and felt like Chris... More

Spotlessly clean and comfortable, this B&B is four houses from the beach in the quiet little town of Cape Charles. This is an area in which to relax with beaches, golf and little villages along the water all within easy reach. Chris is one of the best hosts you will ever meet, he encourages guests to enjoy themselves and has... More

Chris is a wonderful host, and he makes a delicious breakfast. The accommodations are very comfortable, and the sun porch is a great place to begin a day on the Bay (the Chesapeake Bay and Cape Charles Beach are less than a block away). Don't be surprised if you accidentally pass an entire afternoon rocking and reading in the bay... More

If you just want to "get away"... step-out of the crush of daily life... and have Time Slow Down so you can just have some JOYin your days, then make a reservation with Chris at the Sea Gate in Cape Charles. It isn't about how much things cost, (very reasonable) it is about the simple joy of lots of sky,... More

The best Bed and Breakfast experience we have ever had. Chris is a wonderful host and most accommodating in all requests. Total access to all of his facility. Most enjoyable. Cape Charles is a very quaint town. We were there for a wedding. He does take children which most did not.

If you are looking for ritzy, luxurious and fancy this is not your kind of place. Cape Charles is not meant to be exciting. If you choose to visit you are hoping for peaceful relaxation with no stress. Staying at SEA GATE makes it even easier to unwind. Toss a host like Chris in the mix and even someone hyper... More
