I don't want to just rehash all the great things about this place that have previously been said - the friendly owners, the phenomenol made-to-order breakfast, the beautiful sunset - I would rather address the naysayers. First, if you came to an isolated island of 500 people and you expected the Ritz Carlton, that is your own fault. There are... More

This family was like leaving family when we had to come back home..We got to know them on a personal level besides all of them being very professional. My husband and I spent five days here and couldnt have asked for any better service. The breakfast is the best I have ever had..Trying copy his potatoes WV style...lol..We plan on... More

Once you understand the challenges of Tangier Island living, you can appreciate the amenities more. Everything is brought by ferry and it comes at a price so they live more simply than most of us. It's not a 5 star hotel but their cottages with private baths are a standard at Bay View when you would share a bath with... More

Jim, Maureen, and their son, David, were the perfect hosts during our recent visit to Tangier Island. We chose the Bay View Inn based on my pretrip conversations with Maureen, who could not have been any more helpful or informative. I appreciated the fact that she was upfront about the "dryness" of the island (no alcohol is sold on the... More

The ferry from Crisfield, Md., arrives on the island about 1:45 PM. David, the owners son, met us at the dock and took us to the Bay View Inn via their golf cart. As the proprietors had already emailed us their three page list of policy and procedures we were forewarned, admonished and chastised in advance of our arrival. Maureen,... More

We took the ferry from Crisfield, MD to stay overnight on Tangier Island which is located on the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia and decided to stay at Bay View Inn. Before we left for the trip, one of the owners, Maureen, was very helpful with the reservation. She also gave my husband Paul some recommendations of what to bring and... More

Tangier is a charming place with charming people. There isn't much in the way of entertainment and there are only two hotels on the island. The rooms are dated, in need of repair. Bugs were found in several places in our room. Decore was tacky. The breakfast was delicious, BUT there was a cat that kept roaming about and I... More

Let me preface this review with this. It is going to be a mixed review. We arrived as a party of 6 (myself, husband, two daughters and their husbands). The Inn's large golf cart met us at the dock and transported our luggage to the Inn while we walked across to Four Brothers and rented our golf carts. We were... More

When we decided to visit Tangier we checked out the available Bed and Breakfast hotels. We picked Bay View Inn because there all the rooms have private bathrooms and that is important to us. The Inn is charming. David Gott (son of owners) met us at the dock in a golf cart and conveyed us with our luggage to the... More

We spent two delightful days on Tangier Island. It was so nice to slow down and take in all of the beauty of the island. This was made possible by our stay at the Bay View Inn. Maureen, Jim & David were great hosts and treated us like family. Not to forget to mention, the breakfasts were delicious, too. Accommodations... More
