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

The breakfast was delicious. Walking distance to several restaurants and the bay. Shirley was incredibly helpful and friendly. After our first night my husband was already planning our next visit. We will definitely be back.

My husband and I visited colonial beach for the first time on July 4th and we heard great things about the bed and breakfast places. So we decided to drive back for a one night stay during Labor day weekend and it was a great experience. Shirley made us feel welcome and the breakfast was great. The was very clean... More

While visiting the area for business we had the pleasure of spending three nights at this wonderful B&B. The innkeeper, Shirley, made us feel right at home upon arrival - and we felt completely at home for the entire stay. The inn and rooms are immaculate...and the quiet residential area led to a peaceful night's sleep every night. My favorite... More

I chose this B & B based on other Trip Advisor reviews. I echo their opinions about the cleanliness and comfort of the accommodations and Shirley's warm hospitality. We had a lovely queen room and found the bathroom with it's stall shower rather cramped. The King rooms have more spacious bathrooms with tubs, so you might want to keep this... More

Where do I begin? This was my very first time staying in a Bed and Breakfast and I don't think I could have picked a better place to be my first.

Our single night visit was very pleasant. The neighborhood is quiet, peaceful and safe. The room was spic and span and private. There were extra sitting room areas if needed. The hostess was friendly and shared information about the local area. She made a very fine breakfast. We wish we had more time to explore the area from this base.... More
