The inn has a beautiful and peaceful location. The innkeepers have done a great job of restoring the house and do their best to provide everything a guest might want or need. The breakfast is one of the best we have ever had at a B&B. Our room was clean and comfortable.

The Inn at Tabb’s Creek was a wonderful respite and beautiful setting which offered my husband and I the opportunity to get away for a few days and reconnect. Lori and Greg were welcoming and offered up their home for everyone to enjoy. From a relaxing afternoon dip in the pool to a campfire and s’ mores in the evening, we found ourselves happy just to sit back and enjoy the week. The breakfast was awesome, from the fresh produce to excellent casseroles and breads, it was well rounded without being too much. It was a great value and we will go again as well as share this experience with our friends.

Room Tip: The Tabbs Creek Room is a good value, however it is modestly sized.

This was our third time to the Inn at Tabb's Creek. As usual, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food at breakfast rivals any fancy restaurant we have ever been to. Many of the ingredients are fresh from their garden. The rooms are beautiful and clean. The dock is lovely. We love to walk out and sit on the dock and watch the sun go down. Greg and Lori are fantastic hosts who think of absolutely everything. We highly recommend the Inn to anyone!

Spent two enjoyable nights at The Inn at Tabbs Creek. It does have a wonderful location with a beautiful view of an inlet. Sitting at the end of the dock viewing great sunsets is a treat. The well-decorated room, actually a suite, in a separate building was very spacious and comfortable. The very clean small pool was refreshing and nice to have. Breakfast in the main house was truly excellent with lots of choices. Good restaurants in nearby Matthews...a touch of old-fashioned small America. The only minor negative was that the public rooms in the main house appeared somewhat tired.

My husband and I stayed here last year for our anniversary getaway. We only stayed for two nights, but I wish we could have stayed longer! The inn is beautiful and location secluded and quiet - perfect for a relaxing, romantic getaway weekend! The inn keepers, Lori and Greg, are extremely nice and make delicious breakfasts.

We were lucky that a Seafood Feast weekend happened to coincide with our stay - we enjoyed wine, grilled oysters that they grow themselves, Chesapeake crab, shrimp and wonderful conversation with most of the other guests.

We spent a lot of time in the room (Tabbs Room), since it stormed most of our trip, but it worked out well - our room was a decent size for being the least expensive available. It was small, but cozy. There are portable DVD players in all rooms, and a large selection of books and DVDs in the main house for entertainment, as well as a pool, fishing dock, kayaks and paddle boards (for a fee), and fire pit.

When the weather cleared, Lori and Greg were kind enough to let us stay past check-out time to try out stand-up paddling boarding. Although neither one of us had any experience, Greg gave us a quick lesson, then let us go out on our own. We had a blast!

I would definitely recommend this B&B to others. Its location in small town Mathews is just a short drive to other cute small towns and Bethel Beach.

Hello, and so nice of you to write a review a year later! That is so cool, and means a lot to us that you are still thinking about your time here. Thanks also for sharing the pictures, but what is so crazy for us to see is how much we have changed in a year...the room you stayed in, (the Tabbs Creek Room), is still nice, but is now even more super cool as we have totally remodeled it with updated colors to reflect our waterside vibe, plus guest fridge, Keurig coffee maker, sitting area...the list goes on. We have also totally re-done the dock, added a floating dock. lots of extra seating, etc. If you get the chance, would love to see you both again so you can update your memories and photo album! Just let us know...we like to take care of our former guests.
Cheers and all the best!

Not much to add to the other comments. Greg and Lori have thought of everything, from games to happy hour wine and cheese to a fully stocked and clean pool. I found myself saying all the time "Wow, they really have thought of everything".

Do take the river cruise with Trey. I had never schudked an oyster before, and I really loved getting a feel for the history of the region from the water.

Room Tip: We sleep on a Tempur-Pedic bed, so we were very happy to secure the Captain's room.

Thanks so much for your kind review. It was wonderful to meet you all, and really appreciate that you mentioned Capt. Trey's oyster cruise. He is a great guy. local waterman, sort of historian, and all around good oyster afficianado that loves what he does, and we love him for that! In a small town such as ours, we all try to work together and support each other, so we are very lucky that he took the chance to purchase an old wooden boat, restore it, and offer tours.
Best to you all, and hope our paths might cross again one day!

Checked in here for 1 night while in Mathews & Northumberland on business. Greg and Lori have it figured out. Comfortable. Quiet. Great Hospitality. Quaint, along with the important conveniences. A great run along the quiet dirt roads last evening. A good kayak workout at dawn this morning. Greg took care of all my special diet requests. I did not try the non chlorine pool, but it sure looked nice. Horseshoe & bocca ready to go. Lori conducted a very thorough tour and introduction to the facilities. The room was very comfortable. Plenty of electrical outlets. Hangers in the closet for your attire. Updated bathroom.

Road warriors, skip the Hampton Inn in Gloucester and stay here. You will never go back.

Room Tip: I stayed in the East Billups room. Spacious. Comfortable bed. 5 full size windows. No desk in ro...

Wow...we don't get too many business travelers through our neck of the woods, but so glad to meet you and that you found a little "oasis" within your hectic schedule. It means a lot that you had so many kind things to say as I was a business traveler for so many years, and really tried to make our property friendly and welcoming to all, but especially paying attention to the little details that I so often found lacking in the chain hotels that I frequented during my "road warrior" days.
Thanks again, and if your ventures lead you back this way, we will welcome you once again!
