My wife and I decided to return to a place we had such an enjoyable stay many, many years ago at The Garden and the Sea Inn. NOTE: The Garden House Rooms there are the best to stay in! The Virginia and Maryland Eastern shores are such wonderful places to explore during the off season with our dogs. It was... More

We had a wonderful three night stay over New Years with our two dogs. The Inn was cozy and charming, and they welcomed us. The fire in the room, the port in the evening, the skylight over the tub. Plus the Inn is so convent for exploring the area. We cannot wait to return!

My wife, dog and I had a wonderful 4-night stay over Thanksgiving and the weekend following. What a special, delightful stay in this charming, quaint B&B that exudes the owners personality and attention to her guests' every need and interest. Dorothee and Robin, her assistant, were the perfect hostesses. Two of the most pleasant and accommodating people you'll ever meet.... More

We stayed in the Sandpiper room which was perfect for the two of us and our cocker spaniel. The room had a nice porch attached and we spent time in the living room to relax with tea and cookies. Our full breakfast included home made yogurt, bread and waffles with blueberries and marscapone cheese. It was a great place for... More

My sister and I stayed here for a girls' weekend and it was just lovely. Dorothee and her staff were very helpful and kind, the Inn was extremely comfortable with great character and history, and the breakfast was top notch. I am vegan, and in a rural area during the off-season for tourism, it can be challenging to find food... More

We loved it here! Quiet, charming, and relaxing. Hostesses Dorothee and Robin were very welcoming and the breakfasts were wonderfully prepared. On each morning we were there, breakfast was unique. We brought one of our cats with us, and the charge was only a one-time (not per night) fee of $25. We stayed in the Garden House's Sandpiper Room for... More

We had a fabulous experience at this wonderful Inn. We met Dorothee, the owner and Robin, her helper and Lori who cleaned our room. All of them were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Champagne Room and it was so spacious. The King Bed was comfy and so were the pillows. There were snacks in the kitchen area... More

My wife and I had been wanting to visit Chincoteague, and decided to make a trip for our 5th anniversary. We chose Garden & Sea because we wanted to take our dog along, and were delighted by our experience there. Our room was comfortable and clean, and beautifully furnished. The Jacuzzi was the perfect touch for a relaxing weekend. For... More

My wife and I honeymooned at the Garden and Sea Inn two years ago. Our anniversary visit this year was as pleasurable as before. Dorothee the landlady sets a delicious table and provides personal recommendations on local restaurants and attractions. Our room was spotless and featured a king size bed, hot tub, and flat screen TV. The little extras are... More

The Garden & Sea is a bit of a surprise, once you find it (the turnoff is a little tricky). Tucked just a couple of blocks off the highway, it's a huge property with a main house dating to the early 1800s, a second guest house (I was not inside so can't comment on it other than it had a... More
