The Baywood was our first b&b experience, and it was fabulous. Mike is a gracious host and has mad cooking skills. The location is tucked away in a wonderful setting with beautiful sunsets. We have found a new place for little getaways.

Our favorite place on the Eastern Shore!

Best Bed and Breakfast on Eastern Shore

My first experience with a B & B was with Mike & Sharon, Aug. 15-22 2016. Just an excellent, unforgettable experience! The first B & B across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge--no need to go any further! It has it all!!! Natural wooded setting, bay water- front/cliff view, private balcony (or without)spacious bedroom/sitting area, large bath area, walk-in closet. Access to kitchen, dining room, living room, enclosed screen porch or rocker-front porch. Hospitality-they are the best! Coffee outside your room every morning, Mike's special breakfast with muffins, sausage, eggs like you've never seen--and wait to you see how the fruit is served! Meeting and making friends from California, Indiana, Germany, and yes Virginia was unforgettable. Did I say Mike and Sharon are just down to earth conversational and pleasant people who just make you want to stay! He's such a history buff--let him be your travel agent guide to many lovely places. Read "off 13" or "The Barrier Island" on his coffee table for great experiences--then come back to relax, relax, relax and watch the beautiful sunsets, moon rises, and dolphins and fishermen in the bay. Can you say you have swam with "friendly" crabs, floating birds and no stinging nettles? Don't forget those two lovely cats who just want your love! Leave home your hair dryer, robe, soap, shampoo, fan, magazines, etc. They have it all! DON'T MISS THIS ONE!!!!! We and you will be back soon. Thanks so much Mike and Sharon.

A Piece of Home

My daughter, husband and I recently stayed at the Baywood on our way to the Outer Banks. Our experience could not have been better. You drive up the long driveway to be greeted by the most beautiful home. From the front door you can see back to the bay. Mike, the owner, is amazing and does everything in his power to make you feel at home. The rooms are beautiful and the grounds even more gorgeous still. We sat outside to watch the sunset over the bay with some wine while our daughter collected seashells. It was picture perfect. Breakfast the next morning was amazing. Not only was the food delicious, but the conversation was great too. Everyone chatted about where they were from, what their plans were, etc. It was great. In the past, we've stayed at another Cape Charles hotel on our way to NC, but didn't this year due to unavailability. I must say, I'm grateful because we truly feel we have found a gem in Baywood and it will now become our annual tradition. Thank you Mike for a great stay!!!

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
