Great stay and beautiful rooms and views!

Anniversary trip.

We stayed just the one night, but wished it would have been more! Already booked for next year. The Baywood was great. Mike was an amazing host and made us feel at home. The beach front was relaxing and quiet. We had to leave earlier than normal breakfast time, so Mike was gracious enough to have muffins and some coffee ready for us to hit the road. I'm not one to write reviews, but I just had to. Cannot wait to go back again!

This is a great place to stay

This was our 2nd stay here....because it was so good the first time. We actually scheduled our trip around a stay an overnight stop...We do hope to get back and spend a few days as the area does offer a great deal and the value is just so good. The host is friendly and accommodating without being overbearing....the property is loaded with butterflies, bats, hawks and other photo subjects...we did see dolphins in the Bay while enjoying breakfast...if you are traveling from the Northeast to the Outer Banks this is an ideal stopover.. The only complaint I have is that I like it cool at night and the room did get a little stuffy...could use a little more AC

Great stay!!

Wonderful stay in a wonderful home. Mike is the best host. Loved our breakfast and enjoyed early morning coffee on our beautiful porch overlooking the bay! See you next year!

First B and B stay

First stay at a B and B. Our host Mike was great in all aspects: well organized, courteous, accommodating, personable, great chef. The view at the Baywood is unbelievably awesome and the beach is very relaxing. The sunset view can't be beat. My wife and I highly recommend this place!!

As good as it gets

Wife and I arrived at the Baywood greeted by Mike, one of the owners. Shook our hands, welcomed us and showed us our room. Took us on a tour of the facilities and area. Very well kept, bright and clean house, beautiful yard and view of the Chesapeake Bay from the back yard. We really enjoyed our stay. Hot breakfast was served every morning, the other guests were pleasant, overall a great experience. Mike suggested some places to see while we were there and was very helpful. His wife Sharon was very nice to us also, always said hello. 5 stars!

There is a reason we came back this year

The "Inkeepers" are as nice as can be, the place is just wonderful...the very comfortable rooms offer a great view of the Chesapeake Bay...See dolphins jumping around in plain view, while eating the delicious breakfast.....the grounds offer views of millions of beautiful butterflies, hummingbirds, red tailed hawks, bats...and the dolphins...if you walk along its beautiful beach you may see Sea Turtles ...Stay here and you will get way more than your money's worth....if you are a photo buff you will overload on the photo opportunities

Fantastic Location, Excellent Breakfast, Incredible Value!

Mike, the owner of this wonderful B&B, could not be more fantastic. Kind, considerate, accommodating and an excellent cook! We had a great stay and the property is even more perfect than I imagined. From the screened in porch with a ceiling fan where we enjoyed peaches picked from the on-site tree, to the two friendly cats who greeted us on the porch and front entrance, to the exquisite view and perfectly convenient access to the beach, to the gorgeously green backyard grounds. It's all perfect and we will return again and again and again!

Awesome Stay

This was exactly the get away we needed. The room was outstanding, the view out of our room and the balcony was incredible. I can't say enough about Mike's breakfasts, fabulous would be a start. Mike and Sharon are the perfect hosts, friendly, polite and very hospitable. Luigi and Oscar were also the perfect greeters, adorable and always vocal. Would highly recommend this bed and breakfast for anyone looking to meet some of the nicest people out there and to stay in an incredible bed and breakfast. Cory and Melodi

If i could give 6 stars i would. This B&B is wonderful from the beginning. Upon arrival you are greeted by the owner's two cats, Luigi and Oscar who wait patiently for new guests. Mike the owner and his lovely wife Sharon make you feel very welcome and relaxed in their place. Mike's full breakfast every morning keeps you going for the rest of the day. (specially his eggs au lait!!!). After a full days sight seeing, beach excursions and local restaurants recommended by Mike you return to the B&B to a spacious comfortable room with a balcony for a few drinks to watch an amazing sunset. We highly recommend this secluded place as a stop over or destination to anyone. Au revoir, a bientot Mike and Sharon. Marie, Jamie and Antoine from Atlanta GA
