We stayed at the Inn and Garden cafe back in July 2009 (we've been meaning to write this review for several years!) for a few nights, and ended up extending our stay by an extra night because the inn was so wonderful. We stayed in Onancock on a whim, but found it to be a picturesque small town with beautiful sunsets. Paul and Sandra, the owners, were extremely nice, and did everything they could to make our stay as relaxing and fun as possible. Every morning we were greeted with a huge gourmet breakfast of fruit, pastries, and a choice of a variety of omelets (probably the best I've ever had), french toast, pancakes, etc. Delicious food! Every afternoon, we found a plate of warm cookies and various drinks in the parlor.
Sandra made special calls for us to the ferry service to help us plan a trip to Tangier island. She and Paul also lent us their bikes to take to the island and to use around the area. Paul and Sandra were always there if we needed them, without ever being intrusive in any way. We were poor medical students at the time, and Paul and Sandra made us feel like part of their family. The room we stayed in (the Green room) was excellent, both comfortable and filled with interesting antiques (not to mention dozens of DVDs and books). It was very spacious, including a small sitting area. We loved our stay and will definitely be back. This is Southern hospitality on a beautiful coast at its very best!
