Amazing bed and breakfast!!!!

5 on October 10, 2017

Bay Tree Manor is where we were married and we went back for our anniversary! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves both times!


Perfect relaxing getaway

5 on August 03, 2017

If you want a quiet weekend in a comfortable home at a beautiful & peaceful location, Bay Tree Manor is THE place to stay. I was welcomed upon arrival with a cold beer on a hot day by two of the most warm and friendly people, Paige and Mark. My room was so lovely and my bed was amazingly comfortable; I slept like a baby!! This place has all the amazing touches you find in a 5 star hotel, soft terry cloth robes and turn down service with a chocolate mint waiting for you on your pillow! Paige is a thoughtful and amazing cook who prepared me the most delicious breakfasts. I'm a vegan, and i was so humbled that she took the time to find and prepare me a carrot cake oatmeal bake; she even packed up the rest and sent it home with me :) If you want to relax in the most comfortable "home away from home" managed by a warm and gracious couple who will anticipate your every need, then make your reservation at Bay Tree Manor today! You'll thank me for it later - promise!


52nd Anniversary Celebration

4.4 on July 27, 2017

After driving from Lake Anna, and following GPS, we finally came upon this gem of a bed and breakfast snuggled back off the road and right on the Chesapeake Bay. My husband had found it on the internet, and the description met our requirements to be "on the water", but not in a hotel with lots of people. What a wonderful time we had. Mark created a wonderful breakfast. He and Paige were wonderful hostesses. Will fondly remember our 52nd anniversary at the Bay Tree Manor.


Wonderful getaway

Lovely people with a splendid B&B. Bedrooms are large, clean, and newly built. My wife and I took the kayaks out on to the water to the hidden beach behind the property and had a great time. Mark made a great breakfast for all of us in the morning. Overall a delightful experience.


Our Hosts Stole the Show!

5 on July 10, 2017

Mark and Paige were the most amazing hosts. The accommodations were beautiful, the view of the bay spectacular, the food amazing. Not to discount all the outstanding attributes of Bay Tree Manor, our hosts took the experience of my first stay at a B&B over the top! Breakfast was simply divine. Mark and Paige were so creative with the food. After breakfast, there was no need for lunch. We were stuffed! Overall, we felt as if we were visiting with family. The personal touch of our hosts made our visit extra special. My husband and I will go back again and again! Valerie


Outstanding Road Trip

5 on June 05, 2017

On our road trip from NJ to SC we stayed at Bay Tree Manor for one night. We are sorry we could not stay longer. The owners are engaging the views are outstanding and the service perfect. We will stay again.


What a place.

5 on May 07, 2017

Got in after a day of travel to super gracious hosts and a refreshing libation. Breakfasts were enough to keep one going until evening. Conversations and tips for exploring the area were stimulating and helpful. If you don't try this place at least once, you miss one of the good things in life.


I Just Don't Get It

5 on February 20, 2017

Bay Tree Manor is rated among the top three of the B&B's in Eastern Virginia. I give up -- why is not rated among the top three in Virginia, or even the Eastern United States? What else could Mark and Paige do to get a higher rating? There could not be a more comfortable night spent in their "B", the first letter in B&B. The mattress was so firm and high that there is even a footstool provided to get on top of it and into the most cozy and soft sheets imaginable. And that is after we had a relaxing bubble-soaked bath in an enormous hot tub in a spacious bathroom. Oh, tomorrow being Valentine's Day, Mark and Paige (such gregarious and gracious hosts) even left a bottle of Champagne in an ice-bucket for us. How very thoughtful! What a way to start the night to end a long, tiring day of driving. Starting the morning was just as wonderful, beginning with a spectacular view out the expansive picture window that showed the best off God's creativity. As the sun rose in a brilliant palette of reds, oranges, and teal blue illuminating the golden marsh grasses and deep grays of the Chesapeake Bay, the first flights of ducks, geese, gulls, and song birds began their day across this masterpiece, We are torn away from this remarkable and memorable spectacle by the aroma of coffee and sounds emanating from the kitchen as Mark began preparation for the second "B". You will not believe what came off his stove! First, a personal quiche with bacon strips and sausage and his own rendition of mashed potatoes -- all followed by a pair of crepes smothered in fresh strawberries and topped with fresh cream. "I don't want you to leave hungry!", he tells us. No kidding. We couldn't finish what we were given. All perfectly cooked and served on warm plates, a nice touch. Definitely not our normal breakfasts, for sure, but ones that set the bar so high that it is hard to understand how it can be surpassed. Bay Tree Manor for the Best B&B on the Eastern United States!


Simply Perfection

5 on September 12, 2016

I searched for a romantic getaway up and down the Mid-Atlantic coast. When I read the reviews for Bay Tree Manor, I was swayed to make a reservation. This was an incredible experience. Bay Tree Manor had amazing views; the Manor was clean and welcoming; the breakfast was excellent - made with such care and consideration of every choice. If those things made up our visit alone, we would have been more than satisfied - five stars. But really what made Bay Tree Manor a special experience were Paige and Mark. They are a couple with deep history in the area and strike a perfect balance of welcoming, authentic, and loving in how they care for their guests and how they engage with one another to "let you in" to their space. They were truly the difference makers for this visit and have set the highest bar for running a B & B. We will definitely be back to Bay Tree Manor.


Outstanding in EVERY way

Best B&B I have every stayed at. And, I have stayed at many. Couldn't be more perfect if you tried.
