Baywood B&B- Amazing stay on the bay!

5 on May 16, 2016

My mom and I stayed here on our travels around the Chesapeake Bay area, our favorite accommodation of the entire trip! Mike and Sharon, you have an incredible spot there on the bay! Wonderful hospitality and such a beautiful place. The breakfast was wonderful, the room was so nice and very comfortable. The views out to the bay from the upper deck and covered porch were amazing! They also have a private beach to enjoy. I was lucky enough to capture a few photos of an eagle out near the water. My mom and I also enjoyed Mike's knowledge of history and we even enjoyed hanging outside with the resident cats, Luigi and Oscar as well !! I definitely plan on returning and I will bring my husband next time! What an amazing stay on the bay!!


Very Satisfied

My wife and I stayed there for 3 nights during a rather cool and rainy late April. We stayed in the Lighthouse room. Our stay was very comfortable, and suited us just fine. Not having a TV in our room was nice for tuning out. The WIFI internet worked with no problems for checking e-mails though. Mike (the owner) was gracious, pleasant and very helpful. The breakfast was more than adequate. The communal breakfast setting was great to connect wit other guests. The relatively close town of Cape Charles was convenient for local eating (and drinking). We will definitely stay there again.

Hosts could not have been more welcoming, friendly or helpful. If you are looking for a beautiful, peaceful place away from the hubbub of life the Baywood will certainly meet your expectations.

We had a wonderful stay at The Baywood B&B! A magnificent view, a comfortable bedroom and a lovely breakfast! Thank you!


Total Relaxation and Calming

5 on May 06, 2016

We spent a lovely quiet weekend at the Baywood. The entrance to the B&B with it's winding road and tall crooked tree canopy reminded us of sleepy hollow and the headless horseman. The house itself is warm and inviting with a lovely front porch looking out over the bay. Our room was very large with wing chairs, soaking tub/separate shower and the balcony the length of our room overlooked the bay. Mike made a wonderful breakfast both days that included a breakfast casserole, fruit in shells, muffin, sausage, OJ and coffee/tea. It was beyond a lovely experience. The beach was quiet and dolphins played in the mornings. I can't think of a more relaxing and pleasant place to spend a long weekend or week. We will definitely be back and highly recommend to all.


Can't wait to go back!!

This is an amazing little spot on the Eastern Shore. It's perfect for a quiet getaway on the water. Perfect sunsets, the rooms are fantastic and the owner is wonderful. I will definitely be a returning guest here.


Best B & B & Beach!

The setting is magnificent. The people are the very best, The breakfast is first rate. Even the official greeters ( the two cats ) are first class ambassadors. Go out of your way to stay here, a great destination in itself. Garry and Judy KEmmerer
