I visited here in June 2013 and had a wonderful time on Tangier Island. The Chesapeake House has the best location of all the places available being on the main street in the heart/center of this unique island village. The staff were down-home friendly with a ready smile. They loved to talk about their Island and guided us to lots... More

I wish I had read the reviews about this place.There may be some confusion about the name of this B&B. Hilda Crockett's Chesapeake House and the Chesapeake Inn are the same operation, just 2 separate buildings.I invite you to read the reviews for both of them.I had a HUGH issue with having to share a bathroom with everyone on the...

We stayed here at the end of July and had a great time. We recommend room 1, which has its own bathroom. Some rooms do not. The room was clean and spacious. The eating area is next door. You get PLENTY to eat for lunch or dinner. Delicious crab cakes, baked ham, corn pudding (so good), green beans, etc. Breakfast... More

The lodging was OK - no real door or ventilation for the restroom, however. For the price, the value was excellent considering that they include breakfast and supper, both of which were very good. This island is very interesting unless someone comes for glitzy entertainment. There is much to see and observe for an interesting way of life and hardy... More

We just came back from an overnight on Tangier Island. Loved the island life and the people. The Chesapeake house is not your usual B&B - at least not that I was used to but it was clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful and I really enjoyed my time with them. The food was amazing! What... More

I only spent about 28 hours on this island and fell in love with it and the people! I think the people that live here might be the friendliest people on the planet. The bed and breakfast is very clean and nice and along with breakfast, it also includes an amazing all-you-can eat dinner! Hope to be able to go... More

This hotel is definitely charming. The entire trip from start to finish was an adventure. The ladies at this hotel work harder than any place I've ever been to. Everything was so clean and the food was delicious. They are extremely organized and take care of setting up your carts, early breakfast, changing your ferry reservation, etc. The residents are...

I've been to Tangier three times, and I've stayed at the Chesapeake House the last two times, for three nights each time. Located along the "main road" (a term I use very loosely) the lodging accommodations are in two late-19th century buildings. Clean rooms and bedding, combined with the charm of off-level floors and wavy glass windows takes you back... More

There are no words to describe the tranquil allure of Tangier Island.. I am a native of the Virginia Eastern Shore with some ancestry on my mother's side from Tangier, and I've always been drawn to this place since I was very young. At least once per year, I take my boat from Belle Haven and sail there, or just... More
