Dorothee and Tom were wonderful hosts. The food was ample, delicious and with beautiful presentation. Chincoteague is a short drive away (15-20 min). Staying here got you back to peace and quiet, away from the more crowded town of Chinoteague (note we were there July 4th weekend and it was packed on the 5th). We took the 21/2 hour boat... More

We very much enjoyed our stay ... the room was lovely and spacious; Doro was very kind as she showed us around the property and the buildings. Breakfasts were different (for us) yet delicious. We were not disturbed by other guests (we stayed in the Chardonnay room). Doro recommended the Krusty Krab for dinner ... awesome place if you like... More

Just a wonderful experience! Dorothee is a great host and cook! The food is just wonderful. Breakfast will hold you till dinner. We enjoyed every moment, and loved talking with Dorothee. Another trip is definitely planned.

This was our first stay at the Garden and Sea Inn, and we will definitely be back! If you are looking for a place that is within walking distance of Chincoteague or other Eastern Shore attractions, this isn't the place for you. But if you want excellent value in a quiet setting and don't mind driving a few minutes to... More

We were a bit surprised to find out how tiny a town New Church is -- but it is close to lots of places, within easy range of shopping, NASA's Wallops Island visitor center (neat place) and Chincoteague Island. Everything was immaculate. We stayed in the Chardonnay Room. The rooms were large, and the bathroom not only was large, but... More

I searched high and low for the perfect place to stay for a weekend getaway to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. I wanted to go to Chincoteague, because I had heard it was a magical place to visit. We live in Raleigh, NC so I did not know anything about the area. I chose Garden & Sea for these reasons: high... More

You would never know this B&B was there - and honestly, the neighborhood is nothing much to look at and very close to the main highway, but don't let that discourage you because what a find this inn is! It is close enough to easily travel to Chincoteague, Snow Hill, Salisbury, and even Ocean City, MD. Spacious and lovely accommodations... More

Not your typical B&B. Loved this place. Beautiful rooms. Very clean. Most comfortable bed I have ever slept in (wanted to take it home). Very pretty gardens and grounds. Gourmet breakfasts that were outstanding. Inn Keeper and rest of staff very warm, friendly and extremely helpful regarding recommending places to visit and dine. Enjoyed, that although staying at a B&B,... More

My wife and I went to Chincoteague Island for a week celebrating our 4th anniversary and we stayed in this B&B. The Inn has quite a historical background! We had a wonderful time. We stayed in the Merlot room, and it was always clean and comfortable. The bathroom was huge! The inkeeper and staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about... More

This was our third year in a row we have stayed at this beautiful B&B. Dorothee and Thomas are excellent hosts. Very comfortable and immaculate accommodations and the breakfast is so good. Highly recommend. Tim & Tracy
