“Merry Christmas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

We scheduled a stay as a mid-point stop on Christmas day on our way to North Carolina. When we contacted the owners and told of our arrival time they suggested they would prepare a meal as no restaurants would be open. We were greeted, escorted to our room and immediately invited for a Christmas Day champagne toast. We were then served a wonderful dinner of Chicken Marsala and delightful dessert. The next day we were treated like family, provided a gourmet breakfast and shared stories.

We default to staying at B&Bs when we can. We highly recommend the Cape Charles House B&B. You will not be dissappointed.

It was great place for my wife and I to get away for the weekend. The host were very helpful with things to do and breakfast was wonderful. It was a raining weekend however we found enough to do in the area. We made the trip to the local Winery and had very nice time.

A few girlfriends and I stayed at this bed and breakfast while in town for a wedding in Machipongo. We were warmly welcomed up our arrival and had a wonderful gourmet breakfast before departing the next morning. The Cape Charles House is very conveniently located and after the wedding, we were able to walk just a few blocks away to the downtown area to meet up with friends at the local pub. While we were only there for one night, this is a place where we will stay if we find ourselves in Cape Charles again! Many thanks to Bruce and Carol for their warmness and hospitality!

Even though our visit to Cape Charles was brief, it could not have been more enjoyable. Carol and Bruce welcomed us as family, suggested dining choices and activities, and prepared a wonderful breakfast. Both Bruce and Carol are passionately involved in the Cape Charles community, preserving its history and excited with its revitalization. You can tell they love their historic town and home. Thanks to them...we do too!

We had a wonderful weekend at the Cape Charles House, the very definition of a welcoming bed and breakfast base for your Eastern Shore experiences. Bruce and Carol immediately make you feel like family arriving at home, with wine in the evening, comfortable beds, and a gourmet breakfast every morning. We really enjoyed the adult atmosphere. They are so pleasant and knowledgeable, offering up just the amount of information you need, whether you're planning to read on the porch, take in the restaurants and bars, or take in the abundant outdoor recreation opportunities. We couldn't have asked for a better B&B and intend to return at our next opportunity.

We loved our weekend at the Cape Charles House. Bruce and Carol were fantastic hosts and we enjoyed spending time with them as well as the other guests. Food and accommodations were wonderful and we wanted for nothing. We felt totally at home in this lovely B & B and we hated to leave.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Kellogg Room-quiet and comfortable.

Stayed here right after labor day for 2 nights but wish it could have been longer. We stayed in the Kellogg room which was very bright and cheerful as well as comfortable. Plenty of room for our things but with nice touches that made you feel you were in a home. Carol and Bruce were very welcoming and helpful with restaurant suggestions, golf course reservations and things to do. Carol made sure I had coffee ready since I am an early riser so I didn't go into caffeine withdrawal! And then we had great breakfasts - filling yet on the edge of gourmet with great descriptions by Bruce as he presented the food. The afternoon wine and cheese at 5pm was a perfect time to meet the other guests although things were set up so you could have retreated to your own room if preferred. We had great conversations and learned about the other guests adventures. This is what makes staying at a B&B so much fun and the Cape Charles House is an exceptional example of B&Bs at their best. We'll come back!

Room Tip: The Kellogg room was great for two - plenty of room but was actually one of the smaller rooms from g...
