Went on a girl trip with my daughter. We were supposed to get in at dinner time but we ended up leaving late and didn't get in until 12:30am. Barbara, the owner, was wonderful. She stayed up and waited for us to arrive so she could show us around and tell us how everything worked. (Even thought she had to... More

My family of four did an east coast tour of numerous locations and unanimously agree that the Channel Bass Inn was the place that captured our hearts. At the very first meeting of Barbara and David, their passion for eloquent hospitality ushered in three days of pure happiness. Their pride in the Inn and the island and desire to make... More

We just got back from 3 days in Chincoteague and absolutely loved the Channel Bass Inn. Barbara and David are wonderful hosts-- outfitting us with bikes and towels for the beach, utensils for our picnic dinner and perfectly prepared breakfasts everyday. Barbara's scones are not to be missed! We brought our 2 dogs and they welcomed them with open arms... More

Our recent five day stay at the Channel Bass Inn was one for the memory books. The inn is charming and decorated beautifully. Our room was always clean and very comfortable. The food was absolutely amazing!! Barbara and David really put their heart into making an enjoyable experience for every guest. Barbara even adjusted the breakfast times according the events...

Barbara and David are friendly, delightful, accommodating, helpful. Breakfasts and teas really are outstanding. The inn itself is as charming as it can be. My only suggestion would have to do with the island itself: better to visit at a less crowded time than now (early August).

Barbara and David are excellent hosts! Their courtesy and helpfulness began with the reservations and ended with tearful goodbyes. My two sisters and I shared The Room With No Name and we had plenty of room with the extra day bed. The house keepers were very nice and kept the room spotless as well as meeting all of our needs....

From the moment they warmly greet you until they bid you farewell you are treated as part of the family, as someone special. The Inn is so lovely and the rooms so comfortable! Ours... More

My two sisters and I stayed at the Channel Bass Inn during Pony Penning Week and couldn't have been more pleased with the service, hospitality, and food that Barbara and David so generously offered. Their knowledge of the area and events taking place that week were a huge help in planning our days. They were quick to accommodate with an... More

This was our first time at a bed and breakfast - loved Barbara the Innkeeper - her scones were amazing !! The Inn was very clean - did not see a speck of Dust. Enjoyed the use of the chairs that they provided in the "beach" room. It was also nice sharing breakfast with other guests that were staying at... More

Barbara and David are exceptionally nice and helpful. And the best part is that they are more than dog-friendly! We really appreciated how they welcomed our dogs. Also, the breakfasts are incredibly good. We were sorry that we missed the tea - we heard it is amazing!
