The setting is magnificent. The people are the very best, The breakfast is first rate. Even the official greeters ( the two cats ) are first class ambassadors. Go out of your way to stay here, a great destination in itself. Garry and Judy KEmmerer
Mike made us feel right at home the minute we arrived. The setting on the bay is just beautiful and the whole property just wants to make you relax! We only wish we could have had a bay view room. We will definitely stay here again as we travel thru that area.
Lovely inn, wonderful host, and magnificent view from the Cape Charles Room. Enjoyed chatting with other guests and Mike, the owner, at breakfast, (which was delicious). We will return to this lovely Bed and Breakfast!
We loved our one night stay at the Baywood Bed and Breakfast. Michael, the owner was there to greet us, gave us a tour and filled us in on the amenities. Though it was a rainy, foggy spring night we enjoyed relaxing in the common living room and in our room, the Lighthouse room. The huge bathtub and lavender bath salts that were provided was also a wonderful place to relax that night. We awoke to the sun illuminating a view over the Chesapeake Bay from the floor to ceiling windows of our room and coffee service outside our room that Michael had promised would be ready when we woke up. Michael treated us to a wonderful breakfast of quiche, muffins and fruit as well as great conversation about some mutual interests. We look forward to coming back!
We stopped at The Baywood B & B in Cape Charles, VA on our way to the Outer Banks of NC from outside Boston. We were greeted warmly by Mike and his two lovely (outdoor) cats, just in time to watch one of the most spectacular sunsets we have ever seen over the water! Mike said this is the way it looks almost every night - wow! We slept comfortably in our nice upstairs room and enjoyed a delicious full breakfast, prepared by Mike, before we hit the road. We definitely will return to this beautiful Inn!
A relaxing, quiet weekend retreat! The Baywood is beautifully situated in the woods on the Bay, with breathtaking views. Our room had a perfect balcony to watch the sunset. Coffee was served outside the room so we didn't have to venture far before coming down to a fresh homemade breakfast-always served with the Baywood Muffins! Mike was a great resource of things to do. The Baywood is a bit outside Cape Charles so do keep that in mind. Can't wait to come back!
We enjoyed our stay at Baywood. We had a woods view room which was very nice. The bay view rooms are much more desirable in my opinion. The hosts were very gracious and the breakfast was great. If we ever get down that way again we would definitely consider staying at the Baywood, only the next time I would try to reserve a bay view room.
My wife and I recently visited the Eastern Shore to see some family and stayed at the Baywood Bed and Breakfast. We were hoping to try something new and were very pleasantly surprised by what we found at the Baywood. Mike is a great host and cook - the muffins were fantastic! We will definitely be looking to stay again the next time we are in the area.

We spent a fantastic night at the Fig Street Inn. The whole home is gorgeous, and the room we were in was fantastic as well. Such a comfortable bed, a great bathroom with tub with jets. Greg & Donna were excellent hosts!
Everything was exceptional. The house is beautiful and well maintained. Our room was grand and the breakfast to die for. The hosts were wonderful and we enjoyed spending some time and getting to know them. We will definitely be back. Cape Charles is a great little town!
The room was beautifully appointed with a terrace offering a fantastic view of the Bay. The Host was friendly and accomodating and the food, which included their signature "Baywood Muffins" wonderful. Highly recommended..
This was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. The owners are all about privacy of their guest but at the same time you feel like you are at home. I would recommend them to everyone I know.
The Fig Street Inn was great! Greg was an awesome host and was there to help with any questions we had. It was great to talk with him and find out about all the different antique shops on the shore. The house was beautiful and immaculate. We stayed in the Chesapeak room which includes a VERY nice king bed, fireplace and private bathroom with shower. Even though we visited during the winter, there were still some nice shops to visit in town and of course there was the whole rest of the shore that we were able to explore. Cape Charles is a wonderful place to visit at anytime during the year and we will definitely be back time and time again. Looking forward to staying at the Fig Street Inn when we do!
Room was large, clean, comfortable (with couch and coffee table, with walk-in closet, spacious bath with shower and separate soaking tub, plenty of natural light, and beautiful views of the bay from our private balcony. Innkeeper very knowledgeable of the history of the area and full of suggestions of what to see and do (especially outside). The kitchen bar was a great place for wine and cheese. Breakfasts were much more than "continental" (which is what they advertise). Plenty of protein (eggs and sausage) and fruit.
We traveled down the Eastern Shore and discovered this gem. Great location, comfortable rooms and a breathtaking view. Mike the owner was a lovely guy and could not have been a better host. He was warm, enthusiastic and gave us great tips for exploring the area. We will be back!
What a delight to stay at Bay Haven Inn of Cape Charles during the Eastern Shore of Viriginia Birding Festival! Not only was it handy to all the activities, it is a few blocks from the beach, and backs up to a lovely park. A wrap around porch, one portion of which is screened, enables one to enjoy birds and flowers and lovely landscaping. Rooms are filled with natural light, furnished beautifully -- and I had a wonderfully comfortable bed in the Georgie Wilson Room, with a private bath. Breakfasts were magnificient! Had I not had to hurry off with my binoculars, I could have lingered and lingered at the breakfast table. The Hollaways, our hosts are gracious and hospitable and made everyone feel right at home!
What a delightful visit on Virginia's Eastern Shore: Bay Haven Inn, Cape Charles' Lovely old house, beautifully restored and tastefully furnished, with the requisite wrap-around porch, set in lush landscaped grounds, backing up to the community park. And the best part: Hosts Tammy and Jim make you feel so welcome, the rooms are gracious and so comfortable - and the breakfasts are fabulous!
