So many advantageous of staying at this bed and breakfast---personal recomendations to restaurants and local things to do, a beautiful porch to sit on all day, complimentary bikes and every beach accessory you can imagine available to use, and a delicious homecooked...

Sharon & Rich felt like family. My husband and I decided to extend our Virginia vacation one night and stop at Virginia Beach, we couldn't have chosen better. We took advantage of the complimentary bikes to ride up and down the beach and enjoy the music into the night. Location was perfect, quick walk to the beach yet returning thru... More

We were happy you made it on Friday night to start the week end off with a good night sleep. The bikes make it a fun way to get around in the resort area, and help make room for Rich’s amazing homemade breakfast for the next morning! We are glad you liked our coastal touches. Looking forward to your next... More

We enjoyed an excellent 3 day stay at the Barclay Cottage from May 15th through the 17th. From the moment we arrived Sharon and Rich the new owners made us feel right at home. Sharon has a way about her that is so welcoming. The B&B is in a perfect location to walk to everything. The boardwalk is just down... More

Though we only stayed for two nights it was the most relaxing part of our three week holiday in the USA. This was mainly down to the wonderful reception we got from Sharon and Rich who made us most welcome and at home. Though more expensive than the usual Holiday Inn/Comfort Inn they go more than the extra mile to... More

I stayed at the Barclay Cottage with a friend/co-worker while we were in the area for a work related lecture. All of the local hotels were booked for a huge cheerleading competition, so I found this little gem online, having no idea how wonderful it would actually turn out! We had some time to enjoy the area on the bicycles... More

We have stayed here many times and were wondering about how things would change with the new owners. They have a more Coastal/Beach theme in their decor that this Florida girl liked. The breakfasts were delicious and as filling as always. The new owners were friendly and very accomodating. Thanks for a great weekend with my husband's 90 year old... More

We absolutely loved our stay at Barclay Cottage. By the time we left, we felt like we were old friends with Rich and Sharon (the owners).

I am so happy to let everyone know that although the Barclay Cottage has changed ownership, its excellent service continues! Exceptional hospitality, delicious meals and comfortable accommodations are still experienced at the Barclay. Sharon and Rich were wonderful hosts and tended to my every need. Thank you both!
