My husband and I visited in the early summer and we had an amazing time. A huge perk that we experienced was being able to take our dog with us. The inn is very pet friendly and we had an amazing time, not to mention the surrounding area was as well. We were able to go to a local winery... More

We booked online for a 3 night stay. The booking e-mail came in with deposit made and balance due at check-in. We arrived after the staff had left for the day and a very nice letter was left on the door with directions to our room and other amenities available until morning. A breakfast of a stuffed croissant filled with... More

Deceptive billing practices and bad people skills? Well, we are running this place for 7 years now, we have several hundred reviews out there and I have yet to see one with the same observation. Here is what happened: These guests booked our one night free special, online, using a promo code located on a page where the special is... More

My husband and I were traveling home from Florida with our dog, and booked the Garden and Sea Inn because it was "dog friendly" and on our route. Even before we arrived, the hospitality was evident; they actually called to make sure there were no dietary restrictions as they planned the weekend menu. We didn't know what to expect, but...

My girlfriend and I have stayed here two years in a row. Both times the breakfasts were amazing: Mascarpone-stuffed French toast with a fresh plum and red wine reduction, eggs Benedict with a smoked salmon twist, banana French toast with a pecan streusel topping. In addition, owners Thomas and Doro and their staff are extremely friendly, welcoming, and helpful at... More

Thank you for your lovely review! Glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you back soon. We apologize for the impression, that your complaint was not paid proper attention to! In fact, we called our maintenance man the same day, but he was only available the following day. Sorry for not keeping you updated! Everything was checked... More

My husband and I decided to stay inland to avoid the overly-priced waterside B&B's on the Eastern Shore and could not have been more pleased. I have never been to a B&B with more amenities or welcoming owners and staff. There were cookies and tea and chocolates for late night snacks in a garden house, a beautiful pool, a large... More

Once again Doro's place was wonderful, thanks to both Michelle and Doro's divine service and delicious cuisine. My dog had her own porch and loved the grounds. The Garden House swing and porch made it feel just like home again! My room was comfy and updated and I love the location. Danke

My girlfriend booked one night with a gift card we received and we decided to get the room with the largest jacuzzi! Wow!! The grounds and rooms were immaculate, the staff was friends, the breakfast was wonderful (they accommodated well for my girlfriend who is a vegetarian). The only thing that was lacking was the amount of time we were... More

For those visiting Chincoteague, this B&B is an excellent choice. Although not on the island, it is in close proximity so remains very convenient in terms of location. Not being on the island it is also a bit more relaxing as it is away from the hustle and bustle of summer crowds. The home, circa 1802, abounds with charm. The... More

Tasty and gourmet breakfast , attentive & friendly staff who were willing to offer us advice about what to do in the area, house is nice and grounds are landscaped very nicely. The surrounding housing is a bit run down but the 5 acres of the Inn is quite pleasant.
