Wonderful place to stay

5 on July 25, 2016

We found this place quite by accident while searching on line for a place to stay in the Cape Charles area. It looked nice but is even better when you see this place. The location is perfect and the hosts are great people. We will definitely stay here again when we are in the area.


Our Favorite Stopover

My wife and I travel to the Outer Banks from NYC, and we have stopped at The Baywood for the last four years. Mike is an incredibly friendly host, and the rooms are elegantly furnished but very comfortable. Breakfast is always healthy and filling.We always make a reservation for the following year on our way back home. A truly terrific place to stay.


Loved it! So amazing!

This place is gorgeous! The house is beautiful. The view is out of this world! We loved the private beach and the sunset was breathtaking! The room we got was so beautiful with a view of the bay. The bathroom had a huge tub....loved it! The breakfast was so delicious! I really wish we had stayed longer. I want to go back!


Relaxing stay with a magnificent view

This was our first stay at the Baywood. We had high expectations after reading great reviews, and we were not disappointed. Our host welcomed us into a clean, bright, spacious living area and showed us to a comfortable room. The huge front porch offered a gorgeous view of the bay and was the perfect place to relax after a sunset walk along the private beach. Breakfast was hearty enough that we only needed to grab a snack for lunch. Chilled water and fresh towels were available on demand. Don't miss this great getaway ...


amazing sunsets

We were so happy with our stay at The Baywood Bed and Breakfast. The price was great!!! Our room was big and spacious. It was clean with a lovely bath and a walk in closet. The outside area was beautiful!! Direct access to a private beach...which we were the only people on the beach!! It is the place to watch the sunset!!!! We got some dinner and returned to our room and sat on our deck to watch the sunset. I wish we could have stayed longer!!! Its very close to the state park which is very nice. The owner was very nice and welcoming. The breakfast was wonderful!! We enjoyed it very much!!!!! would definitely love to stay again.

The owner Mike is awesome. He makes you feel at home. Private beach for the kids to play on, very quiet, close to everything. He took us on a small tour showing us the WW2 bunker and gun, met some real crab fisherman, and saw the medic house they moved off the island. This was a great time, and would love to come back.


Wonderful stay!

Everything about this stay was perfect. The room was wonderful, clean and cozy. We stayed in the Lighthouse Room overlooking the Bay - gorgeous sunset! The room had everything we needed including a standing fan and sleep mate white noise maker (which I loved!) The breakfast was absolutely delicious the next morning. We were greeted immediately in the drive way by Mike and he was friendly and very informative about the area. The only downside was that we didn't stay longer! Can't wait to go back!


Perfect Escape

5 on June 23, 2016

The secluded B&B was the perfect escape when trying to relax on a vacation. We loved how quiet it was and there wasn't a ton of people around like across the bay at VA Beach. Better than I could have ever hoped for and absolutely loved our stay. Mike was an amazing host and made wonderful breakfasts for everyone and always had historical information about the peninsula. He even went kayaking with us and I can't exclaim how much we loved our stay. I wished we could have stayed longer and we were already there a week! I cannot wait to be able to go back.


What a cool property!
