“Paradise in Virginia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2011

I HIGHLY recommend the Inn at Tabb's Creek to anyone and everyone. The atmosphere is absolutely wonderful. Innkeepers Greg and Lori have truly perfected the art of hosting. They're available whenever you need them yet they're not overwhelming or overpowering like some B&B hosts I've come across. They've got it just right.

The grounds are absolutely gorgeous. The wildlife in the area is fabulous, the food is DELICIOUS and the rooms are everything you need them to be.

There are tons of outdoor activities available in the area but this place is divine for water sports....particularly kayaking, canoeing, boating and our favorite...stand up paddle-boarding.

Greg and Lori are Stand Up Paddle enthusiasts as well and have two boards that they can rent out to guests.

Everything about this place is welcoming and relaxing.

We've stayed here two times now, once in late spring and once this winter. Both visits were amazing.

We've found paradise right here in Virginia.

We would recommend The Inn at Tabbs Creek to anyone looking for a particularly relaxing weekend, especially at this time of year. My husband and I were seeking a bed and breakfast that could offer a cosy place to sit by the fire and at the same time, a feeling of luxury. We found both at the Inn! After a cold day exploring Mathews County, it was lovely to warm up in the library by the fire and our suite, had everything we needed; spacious shower, comfortable bed and delicious breakfasts. We really enjoyed that we could have our own privacy but at the same time, feel welcome to join other guests in the Main House. Spending time with Lori and Greg was fun and we're both excited to join them in the Summer, when we'd like to try paddle boarding.

My wife and I stayed at The Inn At Tabbs Creek a few days ago - we loved the peacefulness, not to mention the attention to detail we were shown by Greg, Lori and David. They were the best! I really appreciated how they made our stay one we will not soon forget. This was our first time staying at a B&B and it was just perfect. Loved and enjoyed every minute of it. The chef was wonderful who prepared a fresh, tasty and abundant breakfast. The Captains room was fantastic and we enjoyed watching the birds outside of our window. The Inn keepers showed us a fantastic winter walk near a nature preserve where we saw two Bald Eagles gliding in the air above. What a joy it was to return back to the Inn with a gourmet selection of hot tea which warmed us up and prepared us for another great nights sleep. What a way to spend some of the Holidays. Thanks again and we will surely return in the Spring!!

My wife and I recently spent a wonderful three days snowed in at Greg and Lori's bed and breakfast. The rooms all have spectacular water views and the hospitality shown by the couple made the stay a truly memorable one.The birding was very entertaining even for experienced birders. The food was very high quality. We will return there for sure.

My husband and I just spent an incredibly relaxing weekend at this beautiful B & B. We couldn't have asked for more hospitality, better cooking or more incredible views. Thank you!

If you are thinking about a small intimate wedding consider The Inn at Tabbs Creek. Our daughter chose The Inn for her wedding and the experience was wonderful. The setting is natural, peaceful, and beautiful. Greg and Lori, the owners and hosts, were attentive and gracious. They shared their home and allowed you just the right amount of privacy. They were helpful with planning ideas and provided assistance when needed. The delicious food, breakfasts, appetizers, to a wedding dinner, was enjoyed by the families with a lovely view of natural Virginia. This special event was made even more memorable at this very special family-run bed and breakfast. Our daughter may have only one wedding but everyone there agreed that return visits are a must! Thank you Greg and Lori.

Greg and Lori have transformed their secluded property into a gracious but casual and welcoming inn. We arrived in a record-breaking rainstorm and were grateful for the cozy library, the lovely room and view, and the common area with easy access to tea and coffee. All the comforts of home. The breakfast was delicious – don’t miss the warm blueberry sauce on Greg’s special pancakes. Their location on the inlet is perfect for kayaking, which we plan to do next time.
