A perfect pet-friendly stay!

5 on October 25, 2014

Having recently stayed at the Garden and Sea Inn (Oct., '14), we were delighted with our Shiraz Suite and with the entire property. Dorothee and her staff were quite helpful during our stay and made sure we were accommodated to perfection, The daily breakfasts were outstanding. It was a wonderful stay for my husband, our dog, and me. We look forward to returning...there is lots more in the area to explore!


Beatutiful B&B and excellent service

3.0 on October 22, 2014

We visit the Garden and Inn B&B last weekend. We chose to go there because we wanted to bring our dog, a golden. The Victorian houses are beautiful. We stayed at the contemporary suite, which was super big and comfortable. The best thing about the Inn is the friendly atmosphere and the care that her owner, Dorothee, puts on whatever she does. She also prepares the tasty breakfast. Really nice place. Not in the center of Chincoteque but at a good distance of all places. Dorothee is also great to give you advice where to visit and/or go for a terrific dining experience. We really recommend it.


Our 7th year at The Garden and Sea Inn

3.6 on September 01, 2014

My sister and my stay at this very relaxing vacation spot was one of the best yet. We've had the same accommodations (Chardonnay Room) each time. We liked the fact that the plumbing had been changed, i.e. sink and shower faucets. Even the water didn't taste sulfurous. We liked what the kitchen staff served us for breakfast, especially the French Toast on our 2nd day. And the pool was a welcome treat after our 3-hour canoe trip on the Pokomoke River. As always, Doro, our innkeeper and her very able assistant, Lori (subbing for Michelle, who was on leave), made our stay as comfortable and hospitable as possible. Even my dog, Mason, had a pretty nice time. We hope to return next August for our 8th stay.


Lovely grounds, great staff.

We had a wonderful stay. Our room was gorgeous, complete with a Jacuzzi tub! Breakfast both days was made fresh and was outstanding. We stayed in the Lighthouse room - it was quiet - we couldn't hear any sounds from the neighboring room at all! The staff and the owner were friendly and welcoming. All in all, a great place to stay for a romantic weekend getaway!

Dixies vacation

4.6 on August 08, 2014

We enjoy the victorian architecture and old style furniture. It was a rainy weekend but still enjoyed our stay. Love sitting on the porch sipping some wine and reading a good book. The breakfasts were gourmet with French influence. Lots of interesting things to do in the area. Our dog Dixie love it too.


outstanding all around

Another Wonderful Experience at Garden and Sea Inn

We have chosen Doro and Thomas's B&B at least 6 or 7 times. We love it there. The most gracious Hosts, beautiful rooms, outstanding breakfasts.


Best ever

5 on July 16, 2014

A beautiful place that is an amazingly clean, tranquil, and friendly B&B. It is pet friendly, truly. You would never know that people brought their pets. It was beautiful. Everyone was so friendly. The breakfasts were delicious! The homey touches of having refrigerators available for you, Iced tea and cookies available in the evenings made it feel like home. The gardens were lovely. We are already planning to return next summer.
