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

You know how you sometimes stay in a B and B and the owner is kind of, well, let's say eccentric, and you feel like you've entered some Twilight Zone episode, and you might never be allowed to leave? That isn't Chris. He is the finest B and B host I have ever encountered. He will talk to you for... More

One does feel at home here, with nice public spaces for sitting, including a sunny Florida room, breakfast room and wide front porch. The location is ideal: the fourth house from the beach, and just a couple blocks to the main-street businesses. But the bedrooms are not the best. Ours was very small, and while there was plenty of drawer... More

We stayed for a night on our way to Baltimore, and it was better than I could have even imagined. Chris is a superb host, the house is beautiful, and Cape Charles a thoroughly charming little town on the bay. Breakfast was fantastic.
