They will go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need to make your trip to Virginia Beach memorable. The breakfast... More

This B&B is a hidden gem in VA Beach! We stayed in "Alice's Room" which has been renovated & decorated to modern tastes but yet still has the old feel and charm of the cottage. Sharon & Rich are the perfect hostesses. They are both so warm and kind and made our weekend memorable. This was my husband and I's... More

Cozy and comfortable, lovingly decorated with every amenity, the Barclay Cottage B&B is the place to spend a relaxing and fun time in Virginia Beach. Sharon and Rich, the owners, are so welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable of the area with excellent recommendations for activities and meals. The best of hosts! Rich's breakfasts are scrumptious and presented beautifully. Chocolate chip cookies... More

Found Barclay Cottage while looking for a place to stay for a weekend tournament. It's about 3 blocks from the beach and is a wonderful old house with a great history. The rooms are clean and the service is phenominal. Rich and Sharon are delightful locals, who know the area well. Their recommendations for dinner and lunch were spot on.... More

As soon as you check in, Rich and Sharon, owners of the Barclay Cottage B&B, make you feel as though you've just arrived home. Their warmth and hospitality is unmatched in any bed and breakfast we've visited. The house us beautiful and only three blocks off the beach but in a quiet neighborhood. The rooms are cozy and well appointed... More

You know what's awesome? Staying for the fifth year at the Barclay. You know what's awesomer (I'm a writer so I can make up words :) )? It's that the BandB changed owners with no difference in the passion with which they treat their guests. Rich and Sharon share the same goals as the previous innkeepers...a great experience, top notch... More

My wife and I stayed last weekend and could not have asked for anything more. We stayed in the Lillian Room which was spacious, comfortable, and well decorated. The location was perfect being only a couple of block walk to the beach. Barclay Cottage has many amenities complimentary to guests to include beach chairs, beach towels, and bicycles to name...

What a great review, Thank You for the many compliments. We are still smiling from reading the review, we really like that you think Richs breakfast is best breakfast that you have had at any B&B. Come on back, he has been trying some new recipes! More
