We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We particularly liked being so close to the Chrysler Museum.

Absolutely the Best

My first experience with a B+B. Others would be hard pressed to beat the experience that we had at the Page House. We liked it so much that we extended our stay by an extra day. We had to change rooms but we moved into one that was even more grand than the one we were originally in. The hosts were friendly and a delight to talk to. The breakfasts were wonderful! We will definitely make this one of our regular vacation destinations.

Wonderful Experience

We spent a weekend there to attend a wedding in Ghent/Norfolk, and we had a consistently wonderful experience! Great hospitality, super breakfast, and the nice touch of port wine / sherry to sip before going out to brave the summer heat. Will definitely stay there again anytime in the Tidewater area.

Page House Inn was Perfect

Although apart from friends who stayed at the beach, we became the envy of many for our stay at the Page House Inn. Debbie & Kim treated us like family - highly recommend this B&B

Excellent property

We enjoyed a restful night Ina beautifully renovated room, complete with cocktails on the porch before retiring inside for a delicious dinner (which people drive up from NYC to have). Can't wait to go back!

A Fantastic Place!

We stayed at the Page House in the "Miss Diane Suite" for four nights in order to attend a wedding at the Chrysler Museum. First, the place is beautifully furnished with lovely antiques and we so enjoyed hearing the stories about the pictures, the china, the special furniture pieces. From the time we arrived, we were treated as friends of the innkeepers! They gave us great recommendations for local restaurants and we loved chatting with them over breakfast. Our suite was lovely and very comfortable, allowing us a restful respite after touring the museum, taking walks, and going to dinner. This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast, and we enjoyed it so much more than a hotel. We highly recommend the Page House to anyone staying in Norfolk and hope to return ourselves someday!

A lovely old house

4.0 on June 02, 2016

The Page House Inn is a beautiful restored home from 1899, rebuilt with much of the original wood and glass work. Hospitality is warm and a bountiful breakfast is served at a great dining table so that you get to meet and chat with other guests. All quite delightful, and right next door to the little jewel of the Chrysler Art Museum.
