I took my mother and children for a weekend getaway to Tangier Island. I enjoy emersing my children in culturally enriching experiences. The ferry ride over to the island was a treat for my children. The captain was GREAT. Once we arrived, the staff at Bay View had arranged to meet us at the dock to transport us to the... More

My mother and I had a fantastic, relaxing time. Maureen was so helpful and made us feel right at home. David was a FANTASTIC cook. They picked us up from the boat dock and delivered our luggage right on time before our boat left the next day. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. If you are looking for quiet... More

Maureen and son David couldn't have been more thoughtful, helpful and almost mind reading what was next for us. We came with a group of 10 people and it felt like we had Maureen and David each to our own. "Hey Dave, we would like to go to Uppards!" "No Problem" Later, "Your boat leaves at 4pm" The rooms were... More

I've stayed at the Bay View Inn on three different occasions! The hospitality speaks for itself! What an absolutely wonderful place! I feel like they are family when I stay! Very kind, polite, friendly, and I will not stay anywhere but Bay View! The rooms are extremely clean!!! I can't say enough about the B&B or the owners! I can't... More

I can't say enough about the wonderful hosts Maureen and David! From the moment David met us at the dock to pick up our luggage, we knew we had made the right choice. This afforded us time to tour the town, eat lunch and check in at our own convenience. We checked in with Maureen who greeted us warmly and... More

From beginning to end, great service, friendly hosts, quiet rooms just a 5 minute walk from "downtown" Tangier! Maureen and David are just great - and David cooks fabulous breakfasts to order (fried tomatoes, eggs, potatoes, bacon - whatever you want). If you come to Tangier expecting cable TV, internet, and cell phone service, you came to the wrong place... More

The Bay View Inn is managed by a wonderful family that greeted us and made us feel like friends rather than just paying visitors. Thank you Maureen for your hospitality! David, the champion at making excellent eggs without fail. The rooms are nice, clean, TV with many channels. I will definitely come back with family and recommend this place for... More

First....I was really torn between entering an overall rating of Excellent or Very Good and chose Very Good ONLY because the Bay View Inn property (and much of the rest of Tangier) is still undergoing hurricane recovery. That didn't affect our stay, but there are areas that look rough because of the damages. Our stay was EXCELLENT! Always on the... More

Couldn't have been better, from arrival to departure. David picked us up with a golf cart at the dock, took us to lodging; he and his mother welcomed us warmly, got us settled, gave advice on touring the island. We enjoyed being the only guests getting to know the island, proprietors, and the 2.1 resident cats (one a very young... More

My original review was removed by Tripadvisor. This is a resubmitted review of my experience with Bay View Inn. I had planned a trip to Tangier Island with my wife and parents. My mother and myself are photographers and we wanted to do a shoot of the island and decided the daily ferry would not allow enough time. We decided... More

TangierIsland, Owner at Bay View Inn, responded to this review

We have let this misleading review remain without a response from us entirely too long as it should NOT be necessary to publicly defend ourselves. Trip Advisor removed the review once for us but Mr. Paul M. submitted another review. We feel it would be pointless for us to have it removed again as this man is determined to blast... More
