Spent this past Saturday night at this inn, our first stay here. We will be back! The place is exceptionally clean, the bed was very comfortable and the front porch alone is worth the stay. We didn't have breakfast there Sunday morning because we had already made other plans, but we'll definitely do that next time. The Inn is located... More

The Monroe Bay Inn is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, but still is only three blocks from the beach We stayed one night in mid-May of 2015 and found the site immaculate and welcoming. The walls of the traditionally furnished house are hung with works by area artists in a variety of styles, along with a few table sculptures,... More

Quick getaway for the weekend from DC, Shirley was great, friendly, hospitable and full of accommodations. We booked a day in advance as they had room over the Memorial day weekend. Room was very clean, peaceful and great breakfast. Don't skip out on the breakfast, it was better than some of the restaurants.

Stayed two nights and enjoyed everything about this B&B. Room was clean/spacious and the inn provided nice touches such as wine glasses, a keurig, etc. Breakfast both mornings was delicious and our hosts (Shirley then Ethel) made sure there was plenty to eat. The art was beautiful and a cool, unique aspect. Would recommend renting a golf cart to cruise... More

My boyfriend and I were attending a wedding in the area, and booked a night at the Monroe Bay Inn about 1 month in advance. Shirley was wonderful - accommodated our early arrival time and set us up in a beautiful, spacious king bed room (Room #1). Everything was extremely clean and comfortable. The breakfast the following morning was out... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to get out of the city for the President's Day holiday weekend (which also happened to be Valentine's Day weekend) so we booked a few nights at the B&B. The B&B was perfect! Shirley, the inn keeper, took great care of us and cooked an amazing breakfast every morning. She made the best baked french... More

We just got back from a wonderful weekend at the Monroe Bay Inn. Sherie was so sweet and welcoming and the food was amazing! Since no one else had booked a room at the B&B, Sherie allowed me to bring my 8 month old son and even held him while we ate breakfast! The rooms were great, the bed was... More

What a peaceful and enjoyable stay. We had the best host AND the best experience at this cute little B&B! The lovely art decorating the house and the yummy breakfast were pluses to a place that is clean and well-kept. We took the easy 90-minute drive to Washington, D.C., to simply tour the Capitol and we returned gladly to the... More

Ventured to the Monroe Bay Bed and Breakfast for a weekend getaway in February. The property is located in a residential community near restaurants and other businesses. The house itself is very comfortable and welcoming, and the art inside is quite lovely. Sam was our hostess this weekend since Shirley was away; however, I was fortunate to work with both... More
