My husband and I booked one night only the first week of April to visit Chincoteague in celebration of our anniversary. This Inn is conveniently located a short drive from the islands of Chincoteague and Assateague. I found it online and decided to take a chance. First, Dorothee was very accommodating when I phoned (with only 1 hour notice) to see if we could check in early. The exterior of the main is in need of some attention, but once you enter, you know that this place is a labor of love in the making! Filled with beautiful antiques and a few contemporary pieces to keep it somewhat modern, the overall décor and cleanliness make you feel right at home. My husband was so enamored with the place, he opted to leave the island early in the afternoon to spend it at the Inn! Our room was immaculate and we very much enjoyed the jetted tub and deck off the back with gorgeous views of the trees and sunset. Breakfast was amazing; we were regaled with tales of the history of the area, as well as the house by the owners and staff. The breakfast was delicious, the hosts even better, and we will definitely go back! It was all that we wanted, and more. :)

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!

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.

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.

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!
