This is the 2nd time that my husband and I have stayed at the Bay View Waterfront B&B on the Eastern Shore. We had a very relaxing stay with a scenic water view from our room. There is also very little light pollution so it is a great location for star gazing where you can even see the Milky Way if the sky is clear. Good seafood restaurants are a 15-minute or so drive away. Chincoteague is just an hour's drive away. Mary Will, the owner, is very personable and welcoming. The large foyer, dining room, library and living room in the 1800 circa of the house take you back to the colonial era. Breakfasts were great including a fabulous French toast and plenty of fruit. We will definitely return! Highly recommend.
My husband had an hour long meeting Onancoc but since it is 3 1/2 hours from Richmond, Va. I went along and we stayed over at this bed and breakfast. It is set way back away from the noise, the city life and it takes you back in time. The owners were very nice. Mary was so sweet and an excellent host. We checked in, went out to the pool for a swim. Was hoping for a beautiful sunset but some clouds moved in but the view was still spectacular. The breakfast the next morning was to die for. Homemade biscuits, jam, fruit, wonderful quiche and great coffee. The bed was so comfy. We had a big picture window to look out at the water. It was gorgeous. Can't wait to go back, hopefully in the fall. This is a down to earth country place. Not modern or fancy so if you want high end and fancy go elsewhere. But if you just want quiet, down to earth, country, clean, nice TV, WiFi and to go back in time you won't be disappointed. We loved it. …
My husband and I enjoyed every little thing about Bay View. The views are among the best. The owners, Mary and Wayne are wonderful! So accommodating. You feel as though you are a part of their family. Loved the style of the 1800's farm house, and loved the in ground pool with the place. Loved waking up, sitting outside with a cup of coffee and staring at the Bay!! Would go back to this place in a heartbeat!!
We loved our stay here - and as history lovers this place was perfect! The circa 1800 house is built in the "big house little house" style so beloved by those on the Eastern Shore. The breakfasts were simply amazing, different each day, and served with such quiet refinement. Mary Will and her husband Wayne are the perfect hosts, and are so very helpful with suggestions on places of interest to visit. We crave peace and quiet so this was exactly right for us. We will return! Many thanks for making our stay so nice Mary and Wayne!
This place is not high-end and it is not perfect but we loved our long weekend stay over the long Fourth of July weekend. Staying here was like visiting your grandparents -- they make sure you are comfortable, that you have everything you need, that you have a big breakfast, that you know or have plans (and directions) for the day and when you are back home, they are happy to hear about your day. We stayed in the Allison room which is in the oldest part (1800) of the house and were very comfortable. The guidebook in the room about all the places off of highway 13 is excellent and you will find plenty of things to do and learn by using it. We took our bikes and rode around just on the local roads and saw very little traffic.
