After reading at a few reviews, I was concerned rooms might not meet superior standards. We stayed in the Garden wing with balcony overlooking the Bay and it met all expectations. Not even a smidgin' of disappointment. A lovely suite just large enough without being too large, wet bar, terrific bathroom, comfy bed, bathrobes and large balcony. This resort has an ambiance of summer camp "superior", complete with campfires and Smores, kayaking, bicycles, swimming, golf, tennis...all in style. Grounds are immaculately and beautifully kept, manicured to perfection. Public rooms are fashioned in relaxed elegance, all with expansive and beautiful bay views.
After a 2 day stay, we immediately booked a 7 day stay later in the month. Dogs are accepted and at fair rates. It can be truly referred to as dog friendly. While a number of hotels accept pets, prices are outrageous and hardly "friendly."
The small, tidy and charming village of Irvington offers a couple of informal eateries. But best of all is a combination deli-catering business just 2 miles down the road in a neighboring village (White Rock?). A colorful chef and crew, offeri truly wonderfully prepared food, take out dinners and lunches. BBQ chicken is superb. Ribs equally superb. Try a REAL Reuben for lunch, melt in your mouth. And don't miss their cheesecake. Jimmie's Market (apologies if the name is incorrect) and the front desk can direct you correctly. After leaving the hotel contiinue straight on King Carter Dirve. At the stop sign continue straight...2 miles to the next village and you've arrived.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- On a lush peninsula in Virginia's historic Northern Neck, the waterfront Tides Inn has welcomed generations of friends and families who cherish the relaxed pace of local life and the Southern hospitality of our staff. Guests can learn to sail at the on-site sailing school or explore the calm waterways via paddle boards, kayaks and canoes while spotting golden eagles, osprey and herons. The 18-hole Golden Eagle golf course is a pleasantly challenging wooded course with water hazards, and there is also a Par-3 course, tennis, croquet, and spa, plus bicycles for pedaling into town. Our farm-to-table cuisine highlights oysters from the nearby Rappahannock River, and we're located on the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail with several Virginia wineries nearby. ... more less
