This was our third visit, and, just like last year, we've already made a reservation for next year. They provide a quiet, relaxing place and you decide what to do, whether you go exploring or stay right there on the beach.
My husband and I have stayed at every B&B in Cape Charles in our search for a second home. This one is by far our favorite. A private entrance (with our particular room) allowed us to be up and out the door without waking anyone else (great for early morning risers or runners). The owners are darling; they are well-versed in guest expectations, and know they know the area well. They were happy to suggest things to do for those unfamiliar with the area. These are the types of folks you want on your Christmas card list! The room was clean and well-kept. The food was excellent. If we dont' find home number two, we will be here again.
This is a must go to place in a great little town. The hosts, Bruce and Carol are fabulous folks and really go the extra mile to make your stay very enjoyable. We arrived quite late on a Friday and Bruce waited up for us to make sure we were welcomed and comfortable in our room. Carol's breakfast is wonderful along with Bruce's wait service! You feel like leaving a tip on the table. We will be headed back in the future for sure. Great Home, clean, clean, clean. Mark and Karin
We spent our 25th anniversary here. It was a wonderful escape! The rooms are gorgeous and so is the view. Breakfast is outstanding and served promptly at 8:30. The coffee was waiting in a thermos outside our door when we woke up. The beach is beautiful. We walked for over a mile and didn't see another person. We would highly recommend to anyone looking for a romantic getaway. We can't wait to go back!
We had a wonderful stay at the Baywood B&B. The atmosphere is relaxing and inviting. A remote location with a quiet beach. Breakfast was excellent with outstanding "secret recipe" bran muffins.
The hosts of this B&B are the standard bearers of their profession. For example, the attention given by Bruce and Carol to any of our questions and requests was immediate and helpful. And, of course, they were never "put-out." They were genuinely gracious, non-intrusive but always available, authentic and informative. They make a very lovely and personable couple! We have stayed in a number of B&B's but Cape Charles House felt more like home -- without any of the drama. Carol's breakfasts were extraordinary and filling. Bruce's help hoisting our heavy electric bikes off/on the rack was most appreciated. He has maintained an excellent flower and herb garden that Carol uses in her breakfasts. The house's furnishings were conveniently arranged with attractive antiques and all the rooms are decorated in good taste. We'd love to come back whenever we can.
My wife and I wanted to get away for the July 4 Holiday. Little did we know that we would step back in time and into the heart of a delightful community made all the more welcoming by our hosts, Bruce and Carol. From tastefully presented and delicious breakfasts to afternoon wine and cheese, they were superb. They also suggested we take in the town parade. We are so glad we did. Decorated golf carts, kids on bicycles, fire engines, horses decked out in red, white and blue - it had it all, including the largest fork lift I've ever seen. The evening was capped by a surprisingly spectacular fireworks display over the water. The was no small town display but one that could compete with cities one hundred times the size of this town of 1,000.
We love everything about The Baywood! Stayed for one night in the Lighthouse Room for a quick romantic getaway. Our visit was perfect from start to finish. The room is large and comfortable, with a balcony overlooking the mighty Chesapeake Bay, and an oversized tub perfect for a relaxing bubble bath. Loved waking up and being able to see the bay from my pillow. Breakfast was absolutely delicious: spinach quiche, fresh fruit, delicious muffins, coffee. Special dietary needs were happily accommodated. The private beach has warm, gentle waves and interesting shells and creatures to observe. Our host, Mike, is warm and friendly and happy to meet the guest's every request. If we had one complaint, it would be that the wi-fi was a little on the slow side -- but since we were there to connect with each other, and not our devices, it was a very minor inconvenience. Looking forward to a longer stay next time!
I felt as if we had just stayed with great friends/ family. Bruce and Carol were so wonderful and we also had a great time talking to the other guests. The room was so cozy and the breakfasts were delicious. I would love to go back again.
Very happy in choosing the Bay Haven B&B in Cape Charles VA. We were more than pleased with our room and yummy breakfasts. The innkeeper Tammy was wonderful. I felt like we were more than guests in her home. I would love to come again.
We spent a long weekend on the Eastern Shore and stayed at the Cape Charles House B & B. You can't go wrong. The house is stately and cozy. Bruce and Carol were the ultimate hosts and the food was superb. The area is quiet and beautiful. If you're planning on visiting that part of the world, I would highly recommend staying at the Cape Charles House. You won't be disappointed!
My wife and I stayed 3 nights at this outstanding B&B. Beautiful older home that has been thoroughly and professionally renovated. The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Meals were great, made to order, and flexible (e.g. I chose to add oatmeal each day to my breakfast and it was obvious other substitutions would have been easily and cheerfully accommodated). Inn Keepers were available when you needed them but never hovering. We highly recommend this professionally run B&B. We will definitely be returning in the future.
What a lovely place to spend a few days, or even just overnight, on the way over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. The house is lovely, the views amazing, the room with the deck/balcony overlooking the bay was great. Hospitality was wonderful, and the breakfast was the perfect way to start our travels for the next day. A great value for a wonderful place.
We stayed at Baywood B&B for one night... we were enroute home (Yorktown VA) from an Eastern Shores (VA, DE, & MD) vacation. The B&B is located at the southern tip of Virginia’s Eastern Shore peninsula (last stop before entering the Chesapeake Bay Bridge southbound). The Baywood’s property is secluded, charming, and well maintained. Rooms are extremely comfortable and quite… both bedrooms and common areas. From our room’s balcony (Lighthouse Room), back yard, & private beach there are out-of-this-world views of the Chesapeake Bay. Upscale dinners are available in Cape Charles (~10 minute drive north). A simply wonderful sit down breakfast was served at 0830 all guests… in our case was two additional couples. Bottom line… the Baywood is quiet, comfortable, well maintained, and fun. Food was outstanding. My wife and I will go back in a heartbeat… if for nothing more than a quite night away from home.
We have stayed here three times over the past several years. Each time we have traveled by motorcycle and have found the accomadations to be welcoming, clean and relaxing. You just can't beat the friendly owners and guests. The view from the room is fantastic and we felt comfortable hanging out downstairs and out in the back yard.
The Baywood Bed and Breakfast was an absolutely delightful place for us to spend a week's vacation. We stayed in one of the rooms overlooking the bay, and would highly recommend that. Mike and Sharon are so nice, and Mike was very helpful in giving us ideas for nearby kayaking and biking. We will be back, and will recommend it to our friends.
This is a great location right on the Bay. The rooms are spacious and clean with large baths and/or showers. The breakfast is always fresh and copious. The outside balcony of our room facing the water is in urgent need of some power washing and a fresh coat of paint. Salt water takes its toll and some TLC is required to bring the whole property up to outstanding.
I found the location of this Bed and Breakfast simply breathtaking. The value of the room with the surroundings is truly a great deal. The room and bathroom were clean and nice. I rated most items as having met my expectation, however there were some touches I missed. I would have liked to enjoy the patio with the chairs and table having been cleaned. Upon arrival we were kind of lost. We didnt know if like other B&B's the common area was for us to sit in and use or not, including the Kuerig and/or other items. Not being met by someone, I was kind of disappointed that the room did not include a note with a tray of some treat and special touch that one would otherwise receive for the afternoon at a B&B (especially since I had highlighted we were there celebrating our engagement). It seems minor, but it is the kind of special touch one expects at this venue. There was a small ventilator fan for a.c. purposes that kept shutting off and did not cool down the room where the afternoon sun had been shining in on (upstairs). Had the night not been a cool one, this would have been unbearable to sleep in. My review sounds much harsher than I feel and I believe had there been someone there to take care of our needs and concerns, it would have felt differently. I certainly do recommend this lovely Bed and Breakfast to any travelers and hope that maybe we just arrived on an off-day where the reception was a bit less celebratory and the a.c. issue would have been addressed before we ever entered the room, i.e. the room would have been cooled down for our arrival. Thank you for having us and I hope to return.
my husband and I traveled just a short distance over the Chesapeake bridge tunnel to our quaint little destination in the woods with our own little private beach! I'm in love with the experience I had! we will be back again and again!!!
My wife and I recently celebrated our 32nd anniversary at Bay Haven Inn - we had such a great time we extended our stay an extra day. Having visited numerous inns and B&Bs over the years, the gracious hospitality of Jim and Tammy are unmatched. Cape Charles is a beautiful little town on the Chesapeake Bay with a stress-free public beach, great restaurants, friendly local people, and beautiful sunsets. It is the perfect place to escape the busyness of everyday life, unwind with a book or a walk/bike ride, or take a nap on the porch. We will definitely be returning to this Haven by the Bay!
