Cape Charles B&B, a real retreat

4.6 on August 20, 2014

If you are tired of the hustle and bustle of city life, of a nonstop schedule, this is the perfect getaway. The owners are a delight, the setting extremely comfortable, and we came away rested; almost forgot what that was like. Thank you Bruce and Carol

Best B & B Ever!!

I cannot give this bed and breakfast a high enough rating! Carol and Bruce made us feel more like family than paying guests. The breakfasts were outstanding and the afternoon wine and home made cheese was such a lovely touch and delicious too! Fresh flowers from the garden were displayed so beautifully. There was so much attention paid to every little detail. Hated to leave! Donna and Jeff Sadowsky

Highly Recommend

During our stay for two nights in July 2014, my husband and I enjoyed the pleasant home environment, hospitality of the innkeepers and friendly conversations with other guests. The breakfasts were very tasty and nourishing. We loved sitting on the front porch and sharing experiences with our new friends. The inn is centrally located for shopping, access to the beach, and dining. Ate dinner at the Aqua Restaurant where the sunsets are outstanding. Highly recommend staying at the Cape Charles House B & B.

2 night stay at Cape Charles House B&B Aug 1,2 2014

Bruce & Carol Evans were the perfect hosts for our stay. Bruce picked us up at the Kings Creek Marina as we came by boat and took us back when we were ready to leave. He had great stories to tell us. The breakfasts were wonderful and presented beautifully. The house is outstanding and is full of interesting antiques. We were also given an agenda at breakfast of local attractions and events in which to participate and a little of the history of Cape Charles. We enjoyed meeting and talking to the other guests at breakfast. The room was very clean and comfortable and furnished with everything we needed to make our stay perfect. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it highly for a great vacation. Ann Marie & John

A real Gem!

This is a must go to place in a great little town. The hosts, Bruce and Carol are fabulous folks and really go the extra mile to make your stay very enjoyable. We arrived quite late on a Friday and Bruce waited up for us to make sure we were welcomed and comfortable in our room. Carol's breakfast is wonderful along with Bruce's wait service! You feel like leaving a tip on the table. We will be headed back in the future for sure. Great Home, clean, clean, clean. Mark and Karin

Evans' Heaven

5 on July 17, 2014

The hosts of this B&B are the standard bearers of their profession. For example, the attention given by Bruce and Carol to any of our questions and requests was immediate and helpful. And, of course, they were never "put-out." They were genuinely gracious, non-intrusive but always available, authentic and informative. They make a very lovely and personable couple! We have stayed in a number of B&B's but Cape Charles House felt more like home -- without any of the drama. Carol's breakfasts were extraordinary and filling. Bruce's help hoisting our heavy electric bikes off/on the rack was most appreciated. He has maintained an excellent flower and herb garden that Carol uses in her breakfasts. The house's furnishings were conveniently arranged with attractive antiques and all the rooms are decorated in good taste. We'd love to come back whenever we can.

Great Place to Celebrate July 4

5 on July 14, 2014

My wife and I wanted to get away for the July 4 Holiday. Little did we know that we would step back in time and into the heart of a delightful community made all the more welcoming by our hosts, Bruce and Carol. From tastefully presented and delicious breakfasts to afternoon wine and cheese, they were superb. They also suggested we take in the town parade. We are so glad we did. Decorated golf carts, kids on bicycles, fire engines, horses decked out in red, white and blue - it had it all, including the largest fork lift I've ever seen. The evening was capped by a surprisingly spectacular fireworks display over the water. The was no small town display but one that could compete with cities one hundred times the size of this town of 1,000.

Felt like home

I felt as if we had just stayed with great friends/ family. Bruce and Carol were so wonderful and we also had a great time talking to the other guests. The room was so cozy and the breakfasts were delicious. I would love to go back again.

Wonderful B&B

We spent a long weekend on the Eastern Shore and stayed at the Cape Charles House B & B. You can't go wrong. The house is stately and cozy. Bruce and Carol were the ultimate hosts and the food was superb. The area is quiet and beautiful. If you're planning on visiting that part of the world, I would highly recommend staying at the Cape Charles House. You won't be disappointed!
