Gorgeous B&B

4.8 on March 07, 2016

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!


Excellent Bed and Breakfast!

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!

Fig Street Inn was a lovely little b&b. I don't have much to compare it to because it is the first b&b we have stayed in. We weren't there but to sleep and eat breakfast- but i can say the owners couldn't be any nicer and welcoming! The breakfast was amazing and the room we stayed in was comfortable.


Excellent B&B

This place was awesome! My wife and I stayed here recently and had a wonderful stay. The innkeepers were very accommodating...especially with our very late check-in which is rare with a B&B.


Superb respite thanks to Fig Street Inn!

It was a clean, lovely, serene and quiet place to stay with all the amenities of a major hotel....wifi, cable, movies, it was updated but still extremely cozy. It has my highest accolades!

The property was beautiful, well located, and comfortable. The common areas were inviting. My room was a place I could really relax in! Breakfast was delicious! The proprietors were knowledgeable and helpful in all aspects of my visit to Cape Charles. I would definitely stay there again, and would recommend the Fig Street Inn to anyone who was visiting this area.

Beautiful home and rooms, wonderful food and exceptional hosts!


Awesome B&B!

My husband and I stayed at the Fig Street Inn for one night. We arrived around 6:25PM. Donna immediately showed us around and got us settled in our room. She then helped us find a place for dinner. The breakfast was VERY good! We chatted with Greg after breakfast and he told us about the area. He also printed us a map so we could find the Nature Reserve. The drinks in the hallway were such a nice bonus! I get so frustrated at hotels because I drink a lot of water and I don't trust their ice machines. Having bottled waters down the hall was awesome. The room was beautiful and bathroom 5 star! All the little touches went a long way to ensuring our return.


Beautiful B&B, Great Owners, Attention to Detail

5 on September 19, 2014

We stayed at the Fig Street Inn in Sept 2014. I have only stayed at a B&B once before and wasn't very impressed. My mind was certainly changed when we stayed with Donna and Greg. The Inn is beautiful and Donna makes sure every little detail is considered. Greg did a great job making breakfast and in making sure we were well taken care of. Both were very friendly and warm and had a lot of information about the area and things to see. I would return again and certainly recommend it highly!
