Just a few hours from Washington DC, this B&B is tucked away off the main road in Matthews, VA, and has to be one of the best hidden gems on the Chesapeake. Turning off the main road and up the main driveway you're greeted by a grand country house in the distance with a long driveway lined by large mature evergreens. The house has several bedrooms, but we decided to stay in the side building in the "East River Suite." We were greeted by Greg and Lori who are very welcoming and friendly. The room was fantastic and the view from our bedroom window was a beautiful private view of the creek and a large mature fig tree. The breakfasts were amazing, and Greg and Lori were more than willing to share the recipes. The baked egg with roasted red pepper sauce and lump crab meat was particularly amazing. My wife and I had a great time taking the kayaks out on the creek to the mouth of the bay. Greg and Lori also participate in the oyster revitalization project in the Chesapeake. We actually collected some mature oysters right on the edge of the water that were served at Saturday’s wine and cheese night both on the half shell and smoked on the grill. The crab pots on the dock and the fishing poles were also put to good use and provided fresh crab and some good fishing action catching spots and croakers. All and all, we couldn't have had a better time, the grounds are absolutely beautiful, Greg and Lori are amazing, and you can spend hours relaxing on the screened porch or out on the dock or head out on the creek with the kayaks or canoe, and even head into town or over to the beach on the bay. We would recommend this B&B to anyone and can't wait to go back again soon.
