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!

Stayed there recently and there was a lot to like about the historical place (it's been there about 100 years). But there is something you should know: there are a lot of steps--14 for each flight of steps and some rooms are two flights up. So, if you are elderly, disabled, have very small kids or a lot of luggage,... More

Barbara and David, who have been in the business many years, are terrific hosts. Very nice property and a large dining room where you'll eat really great breakfasts. Come speaking any language as Barbara speaks about five or six of them. Be careful of your grammar as Barbara will have no truck with bad usage.

Never have we felt more welcome at a B&B than we did as soon as we were greeted by Barbara and David at the front door. After spending two nights on the road where we stayed with inn keepers who had us call when we arrived, handed us a key, and disappeared, the Channel Bass Inn was a true delight!... More

We stayed a full week and will go back soon. The inn is very clean and rooms very private. Great location and we especially love the innkeepers! Barbara and David are very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts are wonderful!

We had the pleasure of staying at the Channel Bass Inn for a full week and loved everything about the inn, the innskeepers, and town of Chincoteague Island. Barbara and David are wonderful hosts and their inn is super clean, inviting, and centrally located to all shops, restaurants, etc. on the island. The food is top notch and Barbara's scones... More

This lovely old Inn is very close to the main street of Chincoteague and there is plenty of parking behind the house. We were made very welcome by Barbara and David and stayed in the "Room with No Name " which was beautifully furnished (I loved the quilt). Breakfast each of our 3 mornings was a friendly event around a... More
