I went there this past weekend, during the off season and had the most pleasant stay. The staff was wonderful and attentive. The room was so charming and warm feeling. I will definitely be going back in the spring.

Although not necessarily adjacent to anything else on the eastern shore, this attractive and comfortable inn is centrally located between Berlin, MD, and Virginia attractions such as Chincoteague and Assagteauge Islands and Onancock.

We booked at the Garden and the Sea Inn last minute, on an off-season trip to Chincoteague. Michelle was amazing at taking our reservation, making sure that our middle-of-the-night arrival would be smooth and welcomed us the next morning with a delicious breakfast. The inn was spotlessly clean and great effort has been made to preserve its historical character, especially... More

I stayed one night with family in the The Shiraz Suite in the "off-season". The description for this suite is very accurate. The futon is very comfortable. It is situated just steps from the private entrance. If you're sleeping on the futon you have to walk through the bedroom to the bathroom. Therefore, for those who get up at night... More

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

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
