That should say it all about the Inn at Tabbs Creek, but it doesn't begin to describe what a wonderful, magical place this is.
We've been lucky enough now to have visited during all four seasons over the last few years, and each time has left us wishing we could stay longer-- and checking our schedules to see how soon we could return.
Please do read all the other spectacular reviews here at Trip Advisor about The Inn at Tabbs Creek. Everything is true. The rooms are spotless, the setting is spectacular, the food is delicious, and Greg and Lori are exceptional hosts. You can make your stay here anything you want it to be, from relaxing and quiet, to secluded and romantic, to active and adventuresome -- or all these. Wildlife observation and birding opportunities abound, as does kayaking, paddle-boarding, boating, fishing, swimming, art collecting, antiquing, etc. It's quiet, the stars are bright, the beaches are great, and they have oysters (did I say "oysters!") and crabs right off their dock. Oh, and great Jacuzzi's, and a pool, and Saturday evening wine and cheese parties, and oyster roasts (did I say "oyster roasts!) and a fire-pit and ... well, you get the idea.
Did I mention the great Jacuzzi's?
Over the last few years, we've been to quite a few highly rated, first-class B&B's and Inns all over the eastern US. Without question though, The Inn at Tabbs Creek tops them all in every respect. So a word of warning -- a stay here is addictive. Greg and Lori will make you feel like the Inn is your second home and you will indeed want to keep going back.
