Wife and I spent our first anniversary with the Inn and it was the best decision we made. Excellent location, lots of charm, warm environment, and a very clean and comfortable stay. Looking back on our time there, I would be willing to pay more money per night for a stay there (if you are from the Inn, forget you... More

We recently got back from our honeymoon and we could not have picked a better location. If you are looking for a great escape from the business of the rest of the world and just wanting to relax, look no further than the Inn at Tabbs Creek. Lori, Greg, and Dave are all friendly and there when you need them,... More

Our time at the inn was just simply a beautiful. Greg, Lori and brother Dave were so wonderful and kind. Each morning the breakfast so fresh and so very good. The property is a beautiful and peace place. And the town of Matthews is something to experience. My husband and I look forward to visiting again in the near future.... More

This bed and breakfast was exemplary in every aspect--from the gourmet breakfast that has me inspired to emulate some of the recipes, to the landscape with tons of perfectly grouped lounge spots, this inn is a fantastic place to take a step back and unwind. Greg, Lori and David were immensely helpful but unobtrusive, allowing the guests to enjoy the... More

I'll admit it up front - B&Bs are not my favorite places to stay. Too often they are overly precious (lace doilies and antiques everywhere, afternoon teas, etc.) or you feel like you are staying at the house of someone you don't know and it's hard to feel at ease. At their best, however, B&Bs can provide a far more... More

A unique experience with the locals far off the international tourist map. Wonderful breakfasts and warm welcoming hosts.Comfortable beds, much needed bug protection and access to fishing equipment and water craft delivered a perfect restful 4 days. A call from Lori to the owner of the White Dog Bistro resulted in a behind a scenes tour of his not yet... More

The inn @ Tabbs creek is a great place to get away. If you can't relax here, it is your fault. The owners make you feel right at home. We have been to many and this was the best. Please check out the white dog bistro in Matthews for dinner.

The Inn at Tabbs Creek charmed us in every way, beginning with the sign at the (very small) turn-off road that read, "Yes, this really is the right road." The tranquil setting, well-appointed suite, delicious food, and impeccable service combined to provide exactly the relaxing get-away that we needed. The sunset boat ride on the East River was a definite... More

We came to celebrate our 48th anniversary. Our stay was too short to take advantage of all the wonderful amenities, but long enough to know we want to come back. We love to stay at B&B's and this is one of the best. Kudos to The Inn at Tabb's Creek!

My husband and I stayed at the Inn the last weekend in March and had one of the most pleasant and relaxing weekends ever!!. We sat on the dock, built a fire, took a ride to Gloucester (nice town, great small museum), did I mention relax!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our waterfront retreat is located on a secluded creek of the Chesapeake Bay in charming Mathews County, Va. With over 800 ft. of waterfront and 8 acres of wooded and open space, this Virginia Bed and Breakfast is the perfect place to get away from it all and totally relax. The main Inn is an 1880's newly renovated farmhouse with a separate cottage housing the luxury suites just across the garden and pool. An eco-friendly and certified Virginia Green lodging establishment, The Inn at Tabbs Creek is just the place if you appreciate the natural splendor of the outdoors and want the luxury and comfort of a casual B&B. Embark on a kayak or stand up paddleboard adventure, spend the day cycling the endless level Mathews country roads, or charter a sunset cruise with fresh oysters or fishing charter that leaves straight from our private dock. You can also just relax and recharge your romance with a picnic on a nearby beach, stargazing around the firepit, and watching the sunset in our chlorine free pool with a glass of Virginia Wine. *Winner of 2012 "Green Facility of the Year" from Virginia Tourism Corporation and TripAdvisor's "Certificate of Excellence" and "Green Leader" award, we were also voted "Most Welcoming Bed and Breakfast" in Eastern Virginia by Virginia Living Magazine this year. ... more   less
