I just spent my second weekend getaway on Tangier Island and my second stay at the Bay View Inn. It is clean, comfortable, friendly, and breakfast is made to order and absolutely delicious. My first time here was a work retreat for 10 and we stayed 2 nights. My second trip was with friends. Each time was fantastic. A perfect... More

What made this place awesome to me is the friendly service. Maureen and Jim were friendly and helpful, and just seemed happy to chat with visitors. Jim even went out of the way to pick up peanut butter for my toast. David was also so helpful, picking us up at the port, driving us to lunch, and dropping our luggage... More

We found out about the Bayview Inn on line when we were trying to find a place to stay on Tangier Island. There are several small cottages on the property be hind the main house. We stayed in one of these. It was cozy and clean.

Wonderful quite place. The cottage we stayed in was nicely decorated and comfortable. Walking distance to everything including the beach. They have direct tv but spent most of the time walking around the island. The breakfast was delicious!!! Would definitely stay there again!!!!

We came in on a rainy day but were immediately made to feel welcomed on Tangier's by the owner's son David who met us at the dock in a golf cart to take us to the hotel along with our luggage. This is not only a quaint B & B but has beautiful views of the town from the front... More

We arrived 5 hrs. late because of a mix up with the boat from Onancock but enjoyed the hrs in the Old town. Mark the boat capt was GREAT in providing information about the area, including the navigation of the Chesapeake Bay. Bay View was the only place where we could stay, everything else was closed seasonally or run down... More

I took my mother and children for a weekend getaway to Tangier Island. I enjoy emersing my children in culturally enriching experiences. The ferry ride over to the island was a treat for my children.

My mother and I had a fantastic, relaxing time. Maureen was so helpful and made us feel right at home. David was a FANTASTIC cook.

Maureen and son David couldn't have been more thoughtful, helpful and almost mind reading what was next for us. We came with a group of 10 people and it felt like we had Maureen and David each to our own. "Hey Dave, we would like to go to Uppards!"

I've stayed at the Bay View Inn on three different occasions! The hospitality speaks for itself! What an absolutely wonderful place! I feel like they are family when I stay! Very kind, polite, friendly, and I will not stay anywhere but Bay View! The rooms are extremely clean!!! I can't say enough about the B&B or the owners! I can't... More
