A definite 'must visit' destination

Beautiful home and guest rooms. Spacious, comfortable and inviting. Carol and Bruce are very welcoming and warm and provide so much insight into Cape Charles as well as the surrounding area. We have never met such a gracious and warm couple. They are the Cape Charles House!!

A true gem on the Eastern Shore

Remarkable weekend stay at the Cape Charles House. Bruce and Carol went out of their way to arrange an amazing experience for the Merrior Terrior weekend of wine, oysters and fellowship. Carol's culinary talents are incredible! The breakfasts were scrumptious! You will not regret any moment of your stay at this delightful B&B!

The Best B&B we have ever stayed in!

The Cape Charles House B&B is most certainly the best B&B we have ever visited. Bruce and Carol are very warm and friendly, the food is excellent, and the town and area are charming. We recently completed our third visit - and have already booked our next one!

Fabulous time at Cape Charles House

first stay at Cape Charles House. The room was great altho the oversized jacuzzi tub was a bit smaller than we had imagined it. Bruce and Carol are wonderful hosts and make you feel part of the family. They handled our reservations for dinner and did a wonderful job on breakfast each morning. We will certainly go back. W dined the first night at the Shanty and had excellent food and drink. The second night we tried Aqua and again had a winderful meal. Cape Charles is easy and fun to wander though. Make sure you hit the Brown Dog Ice Cream store.

A wonderful place to stay

My husband and I are so glad we chose to stay at Cape Charles House. Bruce and Carol made us feel at home and we really enjoyed visiting with them. Our room was comfortable and breakfast every morning was amazing. Carol was wonderfully accommodating to my food allergy, which made our stay stress free. We will gladly stay there again.

Looking forward to coming back!

Had a great two night stay at the CCH. Very interesting historic area. The CCH was very comfortable, host and hostess were great, food was excellent. We will go back. Made some friends.

Serene, Peace and Comfort

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Cape Charles B&B a few years ago. Our room and stay was so delightful we made it a point to return. On August 23, 2014, we had the pleasure of returning to Cape Charles and stayed in the breath taking Julia Wilkins Room. The King accommodations were lush with stunning linens, decor and drapery, a quaint sitting area, double Jacuzzi tub with shower, and a gorgeous private balcony off the bath overlooking the lush green and colorful gardens. It was so relaxing to sit outside and listen to the breeze and birds during the morning hours. Carol and Bruce, the owners, are the kindest hosts and truly make everyone feel so welcome. Carol is a brilliant chef and our breakfast was very special, French pop overs, fresh jam, fresh fruits and a main gourmet dish, to name a few. The house is decorated with the most beautiful antiques, lovely to look at as well as lush and very comfortable to sit in. Highly recommended ~ the Malone's
