We flew into the airport for the weekend. Jim picked us up at the airport in the Inn's golf cart, although the Inn is just a short walk away. Actually on this island, everything is a short walk away! Accommodations were private, quiet, and comfortable. Our room was cozy, not fancy. Wi-fi was available in the main house (on this... More

Flew in for the weekend. A very beautiful place to stay close to the airport. Only a 2 minute walk. Jim and Maureen and their son David did all they could to make our stay enjoyable and memorable. Taking time to explain island life to us and any other questions we had. For a very relaxed time I highly recommend... More

From the first steps from the Stephen Thomas Ferry onto Tangier Island.......My family and I knew we had arrived to a unique and beautiful island! David met us there at the dock, and loaded our bags onto our stretch-limo of golf carts! He gave us the scenic ride, with guidance to points of interest, to our home away from home.......The... More

My first visit to Tangier Island was made more pleasurable by a stay at the Bay View B&B. David's breakfast was delicious and plentiful. He also transported us via golf cart to and from the boat which was a great help. Maureen and Jim were very accommodating and interesting to talk to. I would recommend a stay at this B&B.

Visited the Bay View the 1st part of August. The Bay View is absolutely wonderful. The breakfast, prepared by David, was delicious. Maureen, owner & son David were so accomodating. David pick us up from the landing & carried our luggage down the dock to the golf cart & deposited at the door to the cottage. Same on the return.... More

Our recent stay at the Bay View Inn on Tangier Island was nothing short of spectacular. Our host Maureen and her son David were gracious and accommodating in every respect. Breakfast was excellent and served with smiles and lovely conversation. Our room was a cozy and romantic reflection of Tangier Island itself; our entire experience both at the Inn and... More

I stayed overnight at the Bay View Inn on July 29, 2013. It's the very best place to stay on Tangier -- I loved every minute of it! The location is right near the Bay. A short drive (in a golf-cart) will get you right to the Bay beach. Loved the breakfast and the hospitality -- thank you so much!

I had to go to Tangier for work in Feb 2013. There was no lodging on the island...but a call to Bay View (they were closed) was rewarded with the invitation...they would open for a night! Bay View has new owners. Very friendly. Internet worked. Excellent home-made breakfast. The room was clean and comfortable. Very very quiet. Hurricane Sandy damaged... More

I usually check with several properties and read all the reviews before I book a B & B in an unfamiliar area. I talked with Maureen (one of the owners) and felt so good about the Inn and the island that I did not read reviews nor check for other options. Maureen and Jim are hospitable (and we are from...
