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!

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.

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.

My family was in the area for a wedding and this was the perfect place to stay. The Garden and the Sea is quiet, very, very nicely decorated with lovely gardens and scattered patios and porches to enjoy... and for the summer the pool was refreshing. Both of the rooms we occupied were immaculately clean, very comfortable, and nice and roomy, which we needed for wedding preparations. If you stay, you should be SURE to spend some time in the living room of the Garden House...very comfortable with snacks and great homemade ice tea available and nice company as folks visit and snack. Several rooms held wedding attendees and it was a nice place to meet. We have some relatives in the area, along with nearby beaches and an occasional rocket launch out over the ocean at Wallops Island, about 20 minutes down the road and we will definitely be coming back!

Wonderful birthday stay! Yummy breakfast in bed. Great, comfy room with screened in porch! Nice quiet street. They are extremely dog friendly which was great for us! We love bringing our dog with us - and he LOVED the screened in porch. He got to bird watch for hours. The innkeepers even arranged a boat tour for us that accomodated pets. That was the first time our dog was on a boat and he did great. Easy 20 minute ride to Chincoteague Island. The innkeepers are vey accessible - they always answered the phone. Great water pressure in the shower. Loved the snacks in the Garden House parlour. Easy 3 hour drive from DC. We will return! Great comfy bed. Pool was steps away. Ample parking. Recommended!
