My fiance and I spent his birthday weekend with the wonderful staff at Hope & Glory. I wanted to check out the northern neck and was impressed with their reviews. They did not disappoint. Yes, it's pricey, but it's worth every penny. We loved Detention, the private bar, and Meseret (the manager) was amazing to us. DO NOT skip the chance to eat at the restaurant; Chef Anne is amazing and the prix fixe meal we had Saturday night was in my top 5 meals of all time. We loved the outdoor bathroom and took a nice long soak in the claw foot tub. We did the cocktail cruise on the boat and enjoyed the trip very much. Peggy and Dudley are not just owners; they are involved daily with the inn and the guests. Our room was pretty small and I would rent another one when we return, but we spent very little time in the room itself. I loved it and hope to return there for a wedding!
