We just spent 3 days at this magnificent home. The owner and hostess Ann Bolin is so warm and welcoming. She goes out of her way to make sure each day with her is an experience to cherish. She makes an incredibly creative gourmet breakfast for you each morning. I could hardly wait for each morning to see what wonderful... More

My husband and I stayed this past weekend. (We are 37 & 40). We LOVED this place. It's gorgeous and Ann Bolin is an outstanding hostess. I will say that the outside photo is deceiving as there are houses surrounding it and there is a road right in between the bulkhead and the house but do not let that deter... More

This year my wife & I took a trip on my brother's boat from Norfolk up the Potomac River to Washington DC and back (fantastic trip. Recommend it highly!). My wife & I stayed at the Bell house on the way up, and again on the return trip, and we are very glad we did. The house itself is beautiful,... More

During our very recent two-night stay at The Bell House, we were thrilled with our first adventure into B&B lodging. The owner, Ann Bolin, is a virtual font of local attractions, and it's obvious that the network of area attractions and restaurants works well together. The house itself is a beautifully-maintained jewel, decorated to a higher standard than many museums... More

You cannot beat the service at the Bell House. When the owner found out it was our wedding anniversary weekend, she had appetizers and sparkling wine ready for us on the veranda the afternoon of our arrival. She was also very helpful in helping select a restaurant for the evening. The Bell House is lovely (charming and clean) - we... More

We came upon the Bell House Bed and Breakfast through Trip Advisor. We had initially went to Westmoreland State Park. We spent one night there and the cabin was impossible to stay in. Determined to save our anniversary weekend, we left the State Park. Calling various B & B's in the area, I had to leave messages for the proprietors.... More

Decided to explore the area briefly before a conference in Wash DC. This was a fantastic find!! Anne is a great human being and will never steer you wrong on places to eat in Colonial Beach. She welcomed us warmly as family and ensured that when we left that we had Fat Freda's crabcakes freshly made. The afternoon wine and... More

My husband and I have been staying with Ann (innkeeper) several times per year for the past 8 years. Every visit has been fabulous! Ann is warm, witty and generous and a super star cook! Her breakfasts are to die for...luscious sweet potato cake, unparalleled eggs benedict, unbelievably yummy stuffed french toast...just to name a few dining experiences! The views... More

My wife and I just stayed here for two nights. Wonderful accommodations. Magnificent breakfast, including good coffee, which is fairly rare these days. Colonial beach is very quiet and unassuming this time of year. Do not come here and miss the opportunity to get a crab cake at Fat Freda's, the biggest and bestest I ever ate. Innkeeper Ann Bolin...
