This bed and breakfast is wonderful! Tammy and Jim are such great hosts. They made my husband and I feel like family!! We came to Cape Charles via jet ski and Tammy even picked us up at the harbor. So nice!! Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. The house is gorgeous with plenty of places to relax. We loved the screened in porch overlooking the beautiful flowers and landscaping!
Also, I must say, our breakfasts were better than any restaurant's! So delicious!!
The town of Cape Charles is so charming and the people we met there were all so nice.
We will be back and when we are- will will stay at the Bay Haven Inn for sure!

Let me just start by saying how amazing Jim and Tammy are! They made us feel right at home from the moment we walked in the door. The inn is so beautiful, you can tell they have put so much hard work and love into restoring the it. We enjoyed relaxing in the gardens at night and just couldn't wait to see what Jim and Tammy had ready for breakfast. We can't wait to go back.

The Bay Haven Inn is a gorgeous B&B with the BEST innkeepers :) The house is so warm and inviting and Tammy and Jim make you feel right at home. The landscaping around the home is so beautiful and the sitting areas on the porch are more than inviting. I loved sitting outside in the morning with a cup of coffee and unwinding on the front porch swing after a morning of Kayaking. The food was delicious and so fresh, seeing as Tammy and Jim grow their own garden in the backyard! I loved the Alice Wilson room with its bright cheery colors and the amount of sunlight the windows let in. While at Cape Chalres we enjoyed kayaking, The Shanty, and the Clam Slam festival which was happening in the harbour. Tammy and Jim gave great recommendations on what to do/where to go while visting Cape Charles. I cant wait to go back and would highly recommend this B&B for anyone looking for a weekend of relaxation, great food, and friendly smiles.

Room Tip: Alice Wilson room is large and sunny!

Aunt Tammy and Uncle Jim, you have created such a warm, friendly,family, and fun atmosphere. As one of their nephews, I figured we were getting "the family treatment' until I met the other couple staying as well and they believed they were getting "the family treatment" as well from the beginning. We had an advanced email before arriving of all the events and activities that were going on around town. This was perfect since we were there for a short time and wanted to pack in as much as we could. The rooms were very clean, well stocked with the essentials, and the beds and pillows were better than what we have at home :). I only wish breakfast could be served all day there because their farm to table approach and years of experience with cooking phenomenal dishes made me not want to leave the table. We have stayed in the Eastern Shore two years in a row and the Bay Haven Inn will be a permanent stop in our travel plans every year. Thank you for welcoming us in as family, and dont worry if you aren't family when you arrive, you will be when you leave!

My husband and I randomly picked this B&B on the internet as a place to get away for a romantic weekend and to elope! It was the best decision we could have made! The inn keepers are a wonderful couple living out their dream of owning a B&B. They are so friendly, gracious, and accommodating. They made our special day even better than we thought it could be! Tammy helped us find an officiant and made a bouquet for me. Jim took pictures for us and they drove us down to the beach on the back of their golf cart for our ceremony. They did all of this for us either at cost or for very very minimal cost. They were so gracious and genuinely shared in the excitement of our wedding day.

The food was outstanding! Each day breakfast was different and superb. They had created a special Bay Haven Inn coffee that was extremely delicious!

We stayed in the Alyce Wilson room and it was beautifully decorated! The room was extremely comfortable, relaxing and clean.

I highly recommend staying at this bed and breakfast for a long weekend to kick back, relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. Jim and Tammy will take great care of you and make your visit extraordinary!

This place is a gorgeous old home that has been restored and it is just amazing. There is a lot of history and it is great fun to read about it. Tammy not only made us feel at home but we felt like we were visiting family. Everything about this experience was warm, friendly and very special. The furnishings are first class and the location is perfect. We needed to leave early in the morning so we couldn't enjoy their breakfast but they made sure we had something delicious to take with us. I'll be finding a way to get back here as soon as possible!

The Bay Haven Inn is a home away from home. I've always wanted to try a B & B, and this was my first. I decided to take my husband away for our 24th anniversary. For us, this was the proverbial hop, skip, and a jump from home (Virginia Beach, VA). So, the travel time was a plus. Tammy and Jim did a fantastic job with renovations. They love to share the before and after slideshow, know so much of the town's cool history, and are full of stories to tell. It's a joy to take part, and we enjoyed some great laughs. The breakfasts are so delicious, and it's difficult not to beg for more. Cape Charles, VA is a quaint little town with easy access to the beach, the best ice cream shop (Brown Dog), and great restaurants (The Shanty and Aqua). Tammy and Jim are more than willing to help you with reservations, too. If you're anywhere near Cape Charles, The Bay Haven Inn is the place for you!
