Monroe Bay Inn Bed & Breakfast
Reviewed May 28, 2012

In just two days, my wife and I had the experiences of a normal week anywhere else. Thanks to the recommendations and referrals from our Inn Keeper, Shirley Hinrichs, we sampled the excellent food and sights of this very interesting and comforting area of the country. Shirley has managed to display a beautiful variety of local Art that can be viewed, enjoyed and even purchased. The very creative Art extends even to the Flower beds and yard with very colorful and unique Yard Art. The MBI is extremely comfortable and clean destination center, managed by the affable, effecient and knowledgable Inn Keeper, Shirley. The food is excellent, the beds very comfortable, the Inn spotlessly clean and the atmosphere fun, friendly and warm.

Room Tip: Room # 1 is # 1.

Just a great spot to unwind and use as your base to see the area. We did the local restaurnats, Washington's birthplace, a winery and a walk along the Potomac. Shirley is a wonderful and interesting hostess.

We are back from two nights in Colonial Beach and had a great stay at this inn. The innkeeper, Shirley, was very knowledgeable about the local area and she went to great lengths to make us feel at home. The inn is very clean, located in a quiet street 3 short blocks away from the Potomac river, and tastefully decorated with local art. The breakfast was copious and made to order. Highly recommended.

After spending a week in this warm and inviting inn, I heartily recommend it to anyone who wants a positive, extremely clean, and attending-to-your-every need experience. The rates are extremely reasonable, the food is great, and the atmosphere is relaxing and comfortable. A bonus is the art displayed throughout the inn that is all local artists. Don't overlook this great place.

Room Tip: There are four rooms of different sizes but all comfortable. The biggest room is the first one on th...
