Just stayed for 2 nights in West Billups room (main house). The room was spacious with roomy updated bath. The breakfasts were great and the hosts were friendly and accomodating. The setting on the water is beautiful. Hope to go back in warmer weather so we can enjoy the kayaks and dock chairs.

This bed and breakfast is just what you want to see in a B&B. It was exceptional!! Loir and her brother greeted us at the door and showed us around the Inn. We stayed two nights in the Chesapeake Suite. The Inn is quiet and excluded and the breakfast is wonderful. This is a great place to just get away!!!

Room Tip: Chesapeake Suite =

My boyfriend and I stayed at this B&B for New Year's weekend and we fell in love with it. The views are beautiful and the rooms are very modern and well kept. We stayed in the Chesapeake Suite. The inn owners are amazing hosts. It felt like you were going to visit close friends instead of strangers. The breakfast food was amazing, especially the cream cheese french toast. We are already planning our next trip there during the summer so we can enjoy some of the water activities. I will definitely recommend this B&B to all my friends.

I can not say enough good things about the Inn at Tabbs Creek. If you want a quiet getaway this is the place. We stayed in the Captains room and it was great and had beautiful water views. The breakfasts were fantastic and Greg and Lori were perfect hosts. Highly recommend!!

We had a wonderful winter getaway to the quiet little town of Mathews and Port Haywood. The whole inn's atmosphere is evidence of Greg and Lori's attention to detail and devotion to their B&B. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: The suites are worth the extra cost

A gem of a find!

For those who live in Washington, DC, anywhere in Virginia, and most of North Carolina, this bed and breakfast is one of the best my wife and I have stayed at. The location is in the gorgeous Virginia tidewater region, the western shore of the Chesapeake. Nestled in sparsely populated (pop. 9,000) Mathews County, The Inn at Tabbs Creek gets three stars just for its quiet and quaint atmosphere. From the drive up the long, old southern path to the beautiful pond it butts, this location is unbeatable.

The entire location has been upgraded and renovated with the latest accommodations, but without spoiling the charm of yesteryear. Their Chesapeake Suite has wi-fi (satellite connectivity) and a jacuzzi, but still the decor and ambience of old Virginia.

Innkeepers Greg and Lori go beyond the other other B&B's by making you their friend. The personal touch is what sets Tabbs Creek apart. Greg and Lori will join you for breakfast and the wine and cheese social, live right on the property, and invite you the main room at any time, day for night, to sit and socialize, pick up a book or movie, or grab a drink. It's clear that the two don't really do this for money so much as a love of people.

The nearest town, Mathews, affords you the ability to look at and buy some great art pieces. The local artists are fantastic, and some larger names, like P. Buckley Moss, are also available. See Scott at the Visitor's Center for a complete verbal history of the town and county (lovable guy).
The Poddery down a couple of streets is a find– they fire their own dishes, chalices, door knobs, and other trinkets in great designs. My wife and I picked up half a dozen items for a couple hundred dollars.
