The Inn at Onancock
Ranked #1 of 6 Onancock B&B and Inns

Reviewed June 16, 2010

My wife had planned a long weekend to take in Chincoteague, and had an extra night with no special plans. She took a chance on this B&B for the Saturday night before our return home. On a personal note, I have to say that I am not comfortable with B&Bs generally, but The Inn was a pleasant surprise. The house is spacious, gorgeously appointed, and each of the varied available rooms is well worth the price. The hosts were more than agreeable, yet unobtrusive (they obviously have plenty to do anyway, and enjoy the doing). We stayed in the Maine room on the top floor, which had built-in privacy, and had a great night's sleep. We took part in a wine and cheese gathering at 6:00, getting to meet and greet our fellow guests, followed by a sumptuous breakfast the next morning. (Kudos to Lisa, a phenomenal chef.) Otherwise, there is a beautiful sitting room on the first floor with big-screen TV, available wifi (no problem connecting), a 24-hour coffee and beverage set-up on the 2nd floor, a wrap-around porch for just sitting and zoning out, or another seating area in the side garden. Even plenty of off-street parking. I can truly think of only one negative - if you stay in the Maine room and are 6 feet tall or better, DUCK. The doorsill is a tad low. In sum, if we ever find ourselves on the Eastern Shore again, The Inn will be our first call. Just a wonderful stay.

I can't recommend the Inn at Onancock enough. Lisa and Kris were incredibly welcoming, generous and attentive hosts. Lisa's cooking is amazing (I'm hoping for an Inn at Onancock cookbook someday), the breakfasts were delicious, the rooms are beautiful, clean and comfortable. Hope to find an excuse to go back soon.

This B&B is truly one of a kind. My wife and I have stayed in many B&B's in the US and in Europe, and the Inn at Onancock is one of the very best. The themed rooms are beautifully decorated and vey comfortable. The gourmet breakfasts are delicious, and the "wine down" (complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres in the evening) is such a pleasant experience, providing an opportunity to meet other guests and to get to know the owners: Lisa and Kris. Ihe Inn at Onancock is a true oasis on the Eastern Shore. We would highly recommend it to anyone traveling in the area. Besides, Onancock is a great place to visit.

This was my second time to visit The Inn at Onancock. Returning this weekend was like going to visit old friends. Kris and Lisa are extremely welcoming and generous with themselves and all that they have at the Inn. Breakfast is served with all the trimmings, (silver, cloth napkins, 3 courses and excellent quality). The rooms are extremely clean and the beds the most comfortable I think I have ever slept in. At 6pm Wine Down hour begins and a very generous platter of nibbles and a delicious wine selection is offered. I can only highly recommend the Inn at Onancock.

We recently stayed at the Inn at Onancock for a one-night visit. We were first expecting to stay in Virginia Beach (too touristy), but luckily, we decided to head on over across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel and were referred to the Inn by the visitor center. This Inn is one of the most beautiful we've stayed at, and we've stayed at many. Lisa and Kris were warm, friendly, and accomodating. The evening Wine and Cheese get together was relaxing and we loved the chat. Lisa is a wonderful chef, so the breakfast is to die for. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and well appointed - the beds are extremely comfortable. You will get pampered here - no doubt. We hope to go back one day for a [much] longer stay. Thanks Lisa and Kris - pet Sam for us. (Good luck Kris!)

Thanks to the new Welcome Center at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, you found us. As we say on our website "We're a short drive to far away." Our guests comment that they feel their blood pressure drop as soon as they cross the bridge. Please come visit us again when you're looking for a perfect getaway.

"Adventure Cyclist" recommends the Delmarva peninsula as one of its top ten tours. After 60+ miles a day in the saddle we found just what we needed at this B&B- a hot bath in the air jet tub, a very comfortable bed, and a multi-course gourmet breakfast of homemade granola, biscuits, omlets spiced with freshly clipped herbs from the garden, and even warm apple crisp for dessert. We had plenty of good coffee, and were refueled and refreshed for our next day of exploring. All of this in very clean, tastefully decorated surroundings. They have room for bike storage in the garage
