My wife and I had a great time here! The food was great. The service was beyond great. They made us feel like friends coming for a visit which is something I greatly appreciated. We will definitely be going back this summer and probably next spring as well. One of the best places I have stayed in years. I cannot... More

We love Barclay Cottage!! In late April my boyfriend and I took a long weekend to get away and celebrate my boyfriend's birthday.Virginia Beach seemed like a nice destination, not too far from home in Maryland. We enjoy B&Bs and we're so happy we found Barclay Cottage! The B&B and the innkeepers, Sharon and Rich, could not be any better... More

The breakfasts were exceptional in every way. Barclay is a great place to relax, unwind, and feel at home. Highly recommend a stay here and we... More

My husband and I had the most relaxing time at the Barclay Cottage. We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed every moment. It was beautiful and quaint, but close to so many things. We enjoyed a couples massage on our second day and this convenient service in a wonderful touch to a pleasant get away. Rich and Sharon are truly... More

Our extended family prefers the intimacy of B&Bs to hotels. Barclay Cottage and its owners, Rich and Sharon, literally opened its doors and welcomed us meeting a wide variety of needs and schedules. From the welcoming visit when you arrive to the "after hours" rescue when I locked us out of our room to the culinary delights of breakfast, we... More

I chose Barclay because the photos looked lovely and there were several porches - my favorite! We were not disappointed. The house is lovely, the company of hosts Sharon and Rich fantastic and the breakfast to die for. Steve graciously handled food allergies and preferences. Although the late winter weather did not grant us some early spring days, we loved... More

This was just a quick stop on an extended road trip, but it was a delightful surprise. Very nice room (though it was a "shared bath" there was no one in the other room), comfortable living room with fresh cookies and coffee/tea readily available, excellent restaurant recommendations, and AMAZING breakfast. A win!

We are so pleased you found us for your “quick stop” and so tickled you referred to us as a “delightful surprise” and “a win!” Rich and I would welcome you both for another visit, maybe not such a “quick stop” next time. We will have another AMAZING breakfast waiting for you. Thank you for your review! Fondly, Sharon &... More

My Boyfriend and I spent two evenings at the Barclay Cottage and we couldn't have imagined a more enjoyable experience. Rich and Sharon are amazing. The cottage is beautifully decorated (some of the rooms have been updated from what is shown on the website) and the breakfast is jaw dropping. We had so much fun chatting with Rich and Sharon...
