The Place was very comfortable, and well maintained (all renovations current and nicely designed). Parking was ample. Amenities at our disposal were also ample (coolers water, beach aparatus etc.). Fig St. Inn is a nice place to stay and is run by 2 very capable people Greg and Donna.

Room Tip: Larger rooms are very nice with Couches and othe furniture,

Really great guests who spent 7 nights with us and explored up and down the Eastern Shore and across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel to the Hampton Roads area. They booked our Narragansett Room and we were able to give them a complimentary upgrade to our Boston Harbor Suite for their last 4 nights when the room became available. Glad they could enjoy the extra space to relax and experience 2 different rooms at our inn.

How can I elaborate on all of the wonderful things that have already been said in previous reviews? All I can say is, if you visit Cape Charles and don't stay at the Fig Street Inn, then you are depriving yourself of experiencing one of life's hidden treasures. The house itself is grand, from the planks of the wood floors to the tip of the roof. Every aspect of it has been lovingly furbished, allowing the guest to indulge in restful relaxation. The property itself is in an ideal location, with shops, restaurants, marinas and golf course easily reached by foot, bike or golf cart. The owners, Greg and Donna are two of the friendliest, kindest, most hospitable and accomodating people we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. We arrived late on a Friday night, soaking wet and battered after boating across the Bay in rough weather. Donna met us with a smile and quickly showed us to our glorious room so we could pull ourselves together. The next morning we were served the most scrumptious breakfast and were given the rundown on everything we needed to know for the length of our stay...which happened to turn into an extra night because we loved it so much! We thank them for opening their home (they live on property with their 2 adorable girls) to us and for making our first B & B experience so memorable. They will definately see us again! Cape Charles is very fortunate to have the Fig Street Inn, and Greg and Donna, as their neighbors! ~Tom and Lisa Gale~

I hope these guests will forgive us for taking far too long to respond to their fantastic review. We've thought long and hard about what to say and there is no way of getting around saying that these were our absolute favorite guests in our 8+ years as innkeepers. They were the kind of guests you could just sit down for hours and talk about everything and nothing. We loved hearing about their travels, jobs, where they lived. They had fantastic senses of humor and we thank them for all the laughs and joy they brought to our home that weekend.

The Fig Street Inn was our very first B&B on our honeymoon roadtrip, and let me tell you, they set the bar high. The house is beautiful, with a full downstairs for guests, including a little snack table complete with all kinds of goodies, including York Peppermint Patties, which I indulged a little too much in. My husband and I stayed on the first floor in the room with the private entrance. Immediately I thought there was a mistake, why would I reserve the best room in the house on our budget? We had a beautiful bathroom with stone work and all kinds of goodies. I later learned that this amazing room actually WASN"T the best room in the house. It was just that amazing.
We were exhausted when we arrived and unfortunately weren't very social and did not take advantage of the common rooms or the wrap around porch. Instead, we laid in the ridiculously comfy bed and watched some movies from the owners' fantastic collection.
In the morning, we felt completely rested and enjoyed breakfast with the other two couples staying at the inn. Though we were quite a bit younger than the other guests, we managed to turn breakfast into an hour and a half affair. The food was delicious and the company fantastic. We had been talking about our respective rooms and began asking the owners about the renovations they had done. Once it became clear that all of us were comfortable with it, the owner took us on a tour of the house. The work that they did is absolutely incredible. Each and every room was thoughtfully renovated and arranged.
We only had scheduled that one night at the inn, but my husband and I agreed that we wish we had more time there. We definitely have to find a reason to go back to Cape Charles!

Thank you for including us in your honeymoon adventure. We're glad you could enjoy a restful night here and we hope you enjoyed your trip down south. Greg had fun giving everyone a house tour after breakfast so you could all see each other's rooms. Our candy/snack bar selection is always changing, but we'll make sure we have Peppermint Patties when you come back.

Our recent stay at the Fig Street Inn was absolutely amazing. I have loved the beautiful home that Donna and Greg have so beautifully restored since my parents moved to Cape Charles 9 yrs ago. My husband and I have stayed in several places in CC over the past years, but nothing compares to the Fig Street Inn. The breakfasts were delicious; the linens smelled wonderful; the bed was heavenly; and Donna and Greg so warm and welcoming. The place is immaculate and so beautiful. Cannot wait for a return visit. If you are looking for a place to stay in Cape Charles, look no further. Fig Street Inn is the place to stay. Thank you for a wonderful birthday weekend.

Room Tip: The Boston Harbor Suite is very spacious and beautiful.

Our first experience in a B&B and the bar has been set! Donna and Greg provided a wonderful stay in their beautiful house. Our room was immaculate and comfortable. We hope to be back when we can make use of the gas fireplace and explore Cape Charles. Greg was nice enough to have breakfast ready for us a bit earlier than advertised-we didn't get to indulge in as many muffins as we would have liked to save room for the great breakfast! Look forward to a return stay.

These guests stayed in our Chesapeake Room - my personal favorite! Not a problem at all to do an early breakfast for these guests. We know we are a stop over for many guests traveling on to somewhere else, so if we can help get you on the road earlier, we are happy to do so.

The most hospitable bed and breakfast I have ever been too. Clean, warm, beautiful, excellent breakfast, and Donna and Greg are amazing. They turned an old house into an amazing work of art. The best value I have ever had at a bed and breakfast. What an immaculate place. The decor is just beautiful and it was a warm welcoming.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms at this B&B. Very quiet street and just a few blocks from town. Great lo...

Bob and I stayed at the Fig Street Inn recently and Bob said he'd never stay in a hotel again! Our room was just wonderful and the jet tub was a real treat. Our wonderfully dressed bed felt just like our bed at home. I can't think of anything Donna and Greg could have done to make our stay more pleasant. Donna gave us some names of nice restaurants in the area and we ended up at Kelly's Pub and the meal was a delight. Greg was up early and made some decaf coffee for me as soon as he saw me moving around. What a wonderful family and what a wonderful way to end our vacation. Thank you both.

PS: Our room and the whole inn was spotless!!

Another walk-in guest who were a treat to host. Love your pictures in front of the inn. Many of our guests are first time b&b'rs and we're glad you chose Fig Street Inn to join the "club".
