The Inn at Onancock stands out not only for the fact that it is a 1886 built Victorian house turned into a modern B&B but also for its owner Lisa and Kris - it is their unique approach to hospitality that makes the experience all the more fulfilling. The wine down hour everyday from 6-7 pm features selected wines and home made savories and is a great gathering where Lisa and Kris join the guests for a great hour of interesting conversation. The breakfast however is just out of the world where Lisa unleashes her culinary skills - overall an unforgettable experience
We stayed for two nights last weekend. Lisa and Kris were perfect hosts. They have a talent for having all the guests feel like old friends getting together to share adventures. The "wine down" in the afternoons was a highlight of our weekend. Breakfast was terrific, especially Lisa's scones with locally produced preserves. The room was elegant, comfortable, and private. The entire house is beautifully decorated and filled with interesting furniture and craftsman items, but it's very welcoming. It was a bit pricey, but worth it if you want a first-rate B&B in a great location.
Stayed for two wonderful nights. Greeted warmly by hosts. Breakfasts were scrumptious and wine down hour delightful. Hosts made excellent recommendations and would make reservations for activities and dinner if you wanted. Bed was very comfortable. Would definitely stay again.
My husband and I stayed at the Inn at Onancock! We really enjoyed our time - including the wine down happy hour and breakfast (the food was amazing, esp during happy hour - so many homemade appetizers and yummy treats!). The innkeepers were so nice and hospitable, and that's what made our trip really amazing. We felt like we were staying at one of our best friend's homes - that was the level of comfort and relaxation we felt. Would highly recommend for a short trip away from the hustle/bustle!
This was the first time we have ever stayed in a Bed and Breakfast and we couldn't have been happier! The inn is beautiful, warm and inviting. We stayed in the Tuscany room and the decor was perfect, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was nice with plenty of hot water in the roomy shower. Kris and Lisa were so wonderful and really made you feel welcome. The breakfast was absolutely amazing!! We would definitely stay here again
My wife and I have stayed at "The Inn" more than any other of their guests, and it's simply because the experience is always wonderful. My wife always greets our hosts with, "We're home," because that's how they make us feel, but it's even better since we are treated like royal guests.
We were supposed to go to Onancock by boat, but the wind just wouldn't cooperate. Our stay at the Inn exceeded all of our expectations and left us with no regrets about missing our last cruise by boat.
This was my third time staying at The Inn at Onancock and every time it has been top notch in every way. Kris and Lisa are so welcoming and accommodating. The Inn is beautiful and every detail has been perfectly planned - from the Wine Down in the evening to the unbelievable breakfast in the morning. I can't wait to go back again.
My husband and I stayed here for the first night of our honeymoon and all I can say is that it was an absolutely perfect experience! From being greeted when we first walked in, to a bottle of champagne and strawberries waiting when we got back from dinner, and the BEST part was their undeniable aim to make our stay fantastic! Lisa even drove up the street as we were walking to dinner to make sure that we were ok with our dinner choice...who does that? They allowed us a late breakfast the following day so that we could get some rest. Truly fantastic hosts!
My wife and I spent the past weekend at the Inn and had a wonderful time. Kris and Lisa are wonderful hosts and the Inn itself is beautiful. Lisa is a great cook and amazed us with various dishes. The location is very convenient to nearby restaurants and attractions, and is walking distance to most. Highly recommended!
We wanted a quick getaway to a place we haven't been before and Onancok met that need. Despite the very cold weather, we had a wonderful stay. The Inn couldn't be nicer and the hosts were very nice people. The food perfect--more than what you typically get at a B&B. And locally, the restaurant we ate at for dinner on Lisa & Kris' recommendation was perfect--The Charlotte. Only downfall is that given the weather and the off-season, many local businesses were closed.
Gracious and charming hosts, Kris and Lisa's Inn at Onancock is the place to stay on the eastern Shore! From our late arrival, through making dinner reservations for us at Bizzoto's for our Valentines Day dinner; they both go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable, relaxing and stress free. The Tuscany Room was perfect for our romantic Valentines weekend. Close to the Chatham Vineyard, we will surely stay with Kris and Lisa again. Thanks!
We spent our fourth long autumn weekend at the Inn at Onancock and found it to be as welcoming and comfortable as before. Chris and Lisa made us feel pampered with great food and genuine hospitality. We certainly will return.
The Far East Room was beautiful and spotless. The bath products were wonderful. Our hosts were very nice and quite knowledgable about the area and obviously involved in the community and historical preservation. Our hosts served a fabulous gourmet breakfast that we'll never forget. Wish we had spent some time at the "Wine Down" the evening before but had dinner reservations.
A lovely old/new building with spacious, clean and comfortable rooms. The owners were very accommodating, even with our finicky breakfast requests. Onancock itself was disappointing, clearly a struggling out of the way small port town.
The house was beautiful, the room was 4-Star hotel quality, and the breakfast was excellently prepared and served. Kris and Lisa made us feel extremely welcome and they are very knowledgeable of the local area and activities. I must add that we have stayed at a highly regarded hotel in Onancock on previous trips and the Inn at Onancock provided a superior service. Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful time at the Inn at Onancock. The inn is beautiful, the breakfast was absolutely delicious, and the owners of the inn were very helpful and friendly. I liked that the owners were there to help make decisions on dining and where to go, and they were so friendly, but they left you to your own to enjoy the peace and quiet of the inn. My husband and I hope to return again to this inn for another restful couple of days! We were able to see all of the rooms, although we stayed in the colonial room, I would stay in the Maine room if I were to return (but all of the rooms were beautiful).
Every thing at this Inn far exceeded our expectations. Kris and Lisa provided us with great ideals for our exploration of the Virginia Eastern Shore.Breakfast was a treat and we looked forward to it daily. Our room was quiet and comfortable and very clean. The Inn has a number of rooms and we will be returning to try other rooms.
I had a 2-night stay in the Provence room here two weekends ago - I could not have been more pleased! What a wonderful experience - it's a beautiful property with fabulous hosts. Lisa and Kris go out of their way to make sure it's a first class operation. I will be back one day!
