“Pristine!”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

A few months ago, I was traveling alone to a place where I was unfamiliar, night was approaching quickly, and I was getting a little anxious. By a surprise piece of good fortune, I was directed to The Fig Street Inn! What a breath of fresh air! I was surprised they could accommodate me on such a short notice. Donna not only greeted me and showed me to my room and what a true delight it was. Combine pristine, elegant, cozy, and comfortable all wrapped up into one place. My private bath was tasteful and impeccable as no detail was forgotten. In the morning, I was served a delicious and lovely breakfast by Greg...and again, the details are what I enjoy the most and this Inn has plenty of them! I would love to come back and bring my husband the next time. Thanks Donna and Greg!

Room Tip: I enjoyed my convenient first floor room...

We love this guest's story - she was traveling through the area to the taxidermist to pick up a moose head for their vacation property. That was a first for us and what a cool story! This guest was so great and we were flattered when she contacted us afterwards to find out about our amenities for her own rental. Thank you for telling us about Smith Mountain Lake and I am hoping to make it there for a getaway - and we hope you'll make it back here with your husband.

My wife, son, and I spent a recent weekend getaway in Cape Charles and stayed at the Fig Street Inn and were extremely happy.

It was our first stay in a Bed & Breakfast and we could not have been more impressed with our hosts, Greg & Donna, or the property. The home had the perfect mix of old world Victorian charm and modern amenities. The mattress in the Boston Harbor Suite was so comfortable my wife wants to know the specific make and model of the mattress so we can get one for our house.

The breakfast prepared each morning was outstanding and allowed for any dietary needs.

With the location an easy walk to the small downtown area, it was nice to just get out and about. Golf carts are allowed on the local streets and a rental agency was a short walk from the Inn.

When traveling back to Cape Charles we will definitely try and stay at the Fig Street Inn again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Boston Harbor Suite which, with prior coordination, was perfect for three people.

Lots of people ask about our mattresses - there is a link on our website (don't know if I'm allowed to plug the brand here). We are just sorry that we didn't order one for ourselves. We are so thrilled the 3 of you could stay with us to celebrate your wife's birthday together as a family, and even more honored that we were your first b&b experience - welcome to the club!

We spent a wonderful four days in the Fig Street Inn for my daughter's wedding weekend. Donna and Greg were unfailingly cheerful and helpful. Breakfast each day was amazing, especially Greg's blueberry muffins. We enjoyed the huge wraparound porch each morning with our coffee and each evening as we wound down from all of the festivities. We recommended the Inn to all of the wedding guests. We hope to stay there again.

Room Tip: The Bournegat room on the first floor is ideal for anyone with mobility issues.

We enjoyed our first visit so much, we decided to come back for a second time. Once again, our weekend was great. We were greeted by innkeepers, Donna and Greg. They were very pleasant; Greg made enjoyable breakfasts both mornings; and Donna gave us an excellent suggestion for dinner. The house is really beautiful. We stayed in the Narragansett Room, which was immaculate and very comfortable for us. Thanks for another wonderful weekend. We will definitely be back!

We so appreciate our return guests - it's one of the best compliments! Glad you could come back and try The Shanty since it wasn't open last time you were here. We like to go there too when we get some time away from the inn. Hope to see you on your next visit to Cape Charles!

We spent two nights last week at the Fig Street Inn and had a wonderful time. We selected this property for our stay based on other good reviews and we were not disappointed. We were made to feel right at home and the room and other accommodations were great. Breakfast was good both mornings and all in all, we just had a wonderful experience. Should we ever wander back to Cape Charles for a stay, we would definitely consider a return visit to Fig Street.

My boyfriend and I stayed for one night and what a wonderful stay it was! Greg & Donna were great hosts, the breakfast was delicious and the room was beautiful. We stayed in the Boston Harbor Suite and fell in love with everything about the room. Great decor, comfy bed, plenty of space and a wonderful bathroom. We will absolutely be back! I highly recommend this inn and Greg & Donna. Can't wait for summer!!

My husband and I just spent two relaxing nights at the Fig Street Inn. The house is a beautiful historic home that has been brought back to it's former glory by warm and inviting innkeepers Donna and Greg. They make you feel right at home from the moment you come through the front door. Greg greeted us each morning with hot muffins that were perfect . Omlets made to order, great way to start the day. Loved our room, from the comfortable king size bed to the chocolates on the mantel. This was a perfect choice of places to stay during our golfing trip to Cape Charles. Do not miss the opportunity to stay at this lovely B&B. (Don't forget to look for Jett.)

Thank you for choosing us for your mid-week getaway and glad you enjoyed our Chesapeake Room - it is our most popular choice. Thanks for spoiling Jett with love and attention. He loves when guests hang out in the library with him. Next time you're here to enjoy more rounds of golf, we hope to see you at our inn.
