This place is a charming place to stay at - and really makes the bar high for other bed and breakfasts out there! It sis off the beach side and the owners make you feel like you are part of the family. This was my second time and I tend to come back again!

The Baywood Bed and Breakfast

Once again, another wonderful stay at the Baywood. The room was nice, the view is just amazing and it is the perfect place to just get away and relax. Breakfast is huge and will typically last you until dinner time. The town itself is small and not a lot to do, but Mike, the owner can tell you all about what is around and suggest things to do and see. Love the Baywood, already planning on going back.

On our way from Courtland to Cape Charles, we stayed one night at the Baywood B&B. We both wish we could have stayed longer. What a gem! We enjoyed breakfast with some return visitors and they had such a grand time. Traveling from Massachusetts, we will be back. Next time we will plan to stay here a little longer.

Paradise Found

The Baywood B&B is an amazingly beautiful location. The grounds are gorgeous and the backyard area is directly on the bay. Mike and Sharon, the owners, made me feel at home from the first moment I arrived. The breakfasts were fresh and delicious. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. This place is a taste of paradise! I can't wait to return!

Great Stay!

We had a wonderful stay at your B&B! Everything was just what we needed, and far more than we expected in today's world of poor service. The owner could not have been nicer. We will return- it has become part of our yearly budget! We are telling friends and folkes we meet that they must go there. Carla and Kevin

Serene setting overlooking the Chesapeake Bay

4.6 on July 30, 2014

Words cannot describe the serenity and beauty of this remote B&B set high up overlooking the Chesapeake Bay. My husband and i have been staying in Cape Charles for over 25 years, as it is a perfect halfway point on our trip to the Jersey Shore. We had always stayed in a hotel right on the bay that was mediocre at best, but we were charmed by the beach and love the majestic sunsets. One day when we were riding our bikes, we came across the unassuming sign for the Bay View Bed & Breakfast. We rode down the long winding driveway nestled in the trees and were immediately impressed by the beauty of the old house and the grounds. There is a huge back yard with rocking chairs and hammocks overlooking the Bay. And the rooms are beautiful with every amenity, including a jacuzzi tub and very comfortable bed. Mike and Sharon, the Innkeepers, went out of their way to meet our every need. We particularly loved the large deck that opened up from our bedroom door where we had dinner while we enjoyed the sunset. I love to swim and find the Chesapeake the perfect temperature, much warmer than the Atlantic, and it is so shallow you can walk way out and find starfish, see marine life and beautiful birds. There is a wildlife sanctuary just across the street and lots of bike trails. We are so glad we discovered the Bay View and will be back every year. It is the highlight of our vacation and the ideal midpoint stop between Atlanta and Cape May, New Jersey, or for those going the other way, from the Northeast to the Outer Banks.

A Gem!

This was our third visit, and, just like last year, we've already made a reservation for next year. They provide a quiet, relaxing place and you decide what to do, whether you go exploring or stay right there on the beach.

Wonderful B&B!!

5 on July 23, 2014

We spent our 25th anniversary here. It was a wonderful escape! The rooms are gorgeous and so is the view. Breakfast is outstanding and served promptly at 8:30. The coffee was waiting in a thermos outside our door when we woke up. The beach is beautiful. We walked for over a mile and didn't see another person. We would highly recommend to anyone looking for a romantic getaway. We can't wait to go back!

Wonderful Place!
