We spent 1 evening here on our way home from a weeks vacation. My wife and I were so glad we did. From the moment we arrived Kim and Matt made us feel as if we were not guests but friends. Kim showed us to our room (Tuscany) and explained everything about the Inn and the amenities provided. Our room was well decorated and very comfortable. A selection of tea, coffee, sodas, and water was available for the guests. We met our fellow guests during the Wine down hour. This was a chance to meet them while being served several appetizers Kim had prepared. There is a selection of wine, beer and non-alcoholic drinks provided. On our visit we had a feta cheese dip and bacon wrapped apricots. Both were excellent and 'hot from the oven fresh'. During the Wine down hour - which I believe was about 90 minutes - we got to know everyone and they got to know us. Matt and Kim shared their recommendations on restaurants and activities and we were glad we took them up on them. The morning starts with coffee or tea served to your room which is a very nice touch. After the appetizers at the Wine down hour my wife and I were expecting a great breakfast and Kim did not disappoint. Fresh granola, yogurt, and berries along with blueberry muffins started the meal. This was followed by the absolutely best soufflé I have ever had. It was light and extremely tasty and served with a bit of fresh fruit and bacon. An phenomenal start to a day. During breakfast Kim and Matt asked everyone of their plans and made more suggestions on things to do during the day. Matt even went and purchased ferry tickets for one couple. The Inn is a gem and Kim and Matt are extremely gracious. We felt at home and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We look forward to returning and tasting more of Kim's excellent cooking. I highly recommend you stay at the Inn. You will not be disappointed.
The trip was a birthday gift for my wife. Booking was quick and convenient online. The room was attractive and included the amenities that made for a memorable trip. Spent two weekday nights, with wine and enticing hors d'oeuvres and the good company of the innkeepers, Kim and Matt. Tried two local restaurants recommended by Kim and Matt. Both were excellent in food and service. We loved the history and picturesque setting of Onancock, and traveled to nearby Chincoteague and Kiptokeke parks for hiking and bird watching (several "first seens". A bonus.) A memorable trip.
A memorable and comfortable trip to the very picturesque and historic Onancock staying in this inn. The stay, wine and hors d'oeuvres, company, breakfasts and room all exceeded expectations. Trip was a birthday gift for my wife, and we spent two nights.
Charming and beautiful home, friendly hosts and family members, wonderful breakfast. Suggestions: (1) a sheet on the bed so that there can be a cover between none and very heavy; (2) light food option well before 8:30 am.
This was an amazing place to stay! They have a 5:30 pm Wine-down where guests and hosts meet and get to know each other. Kim is a wonderful cook and hostess, and Matt and Freya (the German Shepard) are always quick to help in any way. We will definitely stay again when we are on the Eastern Shore of Virginia!
my husband and I only spent one night at the Inn but we will be back soon for a longer stay. A very comfortable bed,spotlessly clean bathroom and very warm and welcoming hosts. The house is charming with historic details, their well behaved dog (Freya) a joy to be around. The Wine Down Hour is a friendly way to meet other guests and the tray in the morning a lovely treat. A great choice for anyone needing to stay in Onancock.
The Inn at Onancock was ideal in every way. Our accommodations and service were top-notch and breakfast was beautiful and delicious. The restored and expanded Victorian house is classy but still very cozy. Kimberley was a very gracious and helpful host. Visiting with her during the late afternoon wine hour was fun and she offered excellent suggestions for shopping, dining and outings the following day. We've stayed at lots of B&Bs through the years but this one ranks among the very best. We'll be back. Chazz and Susan
My husband and I recently stayed at the Inn at Onancock. We arrived later than probably would've been ideal for the innkeepers but they were so gracious in waiting up for us to arrive. As soon as we drove up, we were greeted by Matt and their gorgeous dog, Freya. We instantly felt like we were just arriving at a friend's house. Matt was so welcoming and helpful in getting us settled in. Unfortunately, Kim was away for the weekend and we were sad we didn't get to meet her. BUT, we will just have to come back so we can meet her! :) We stayed in the Williamsburg room and it was wonderful. The bathroom with its chandelier, vaulted ceilings, and jacuzzi tub for 2 was a real treat. The room also had a fireplace that we would've loved to have used if it hadn't happened to be an unusually warm weekend in February. ;) The room was clean and neat and was the perfect place to spend our weekend getaway. The coffee/tea brought to our door in the mornings was a perfect touch. It was a real treat to have it waiting outside our door when we woke up. The breakfast was delicious and cooked fresh each day. All of it was just perfect. We LOVED "Wine Down Hour". Matt made some delicious hors d'oeuvre and provided a good wine selection of white and red. We really enjoyed chatting with and getting to know the other guests as well as Matt. Matt was a superb host and was very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and its places to eat and drink. He directed us to the nearby Chatham Winery which we did a wine tasting at and it was just lovely. Overall we give the Inn at Onancock 5 out of 5 stars! We plan to come back and visit again and can't recommend it enough. Go and stay with Matt and Kim - we promise you will feel like you're staying a the lovely home of dear friends. Thank you Matt and Kim! Keep up the great work!!
We just stayed one night , but we will certainly return. A charming house with historic detail, caring and attentive owners made for a lovely stay. We stayed in the Tuscany room with it's walk in shower; spotlessly clean with some lovely amenities. Very comfortable bed (with a little step) and the morning coffee was a great treat. Highly recommended
The Inn was a wonderful surprise on the Eastern Shore! Every detail was taken care of-the house is beautiful the food was gourmet-I rate this inn as a 5 star. The town is a great small town to visit with quality shops and great restaurants. We will go back.
The stay at the Inn at Onancock was great. From the minute we were welcomed at the door until we said our goodbyes, the owners were most gracious and extremely hospitable! Kim is an amazing cook!! We are looking forward to coming back.
We recently stayed at The Inn at Onancock for a romantic getaway, and it was perfect! From the chocolate dipped strawberries, red roses, and champagne on arrival, to the cheery fireplace, in our room on a cold winter evening, the appetizers and wine shared during their wine down hour, to the superb melt in your mouth breakfast, this was such a wonderful experience that I highly recommend. The Innkeepers are so down to earth and such a pleasure to chat with! A and G - Goochland, Virginia
We have stayed at the Inn at Onancock on five different occasions. It has become our go-to location whenever we are traveling up or down the Eastern Shore. The rooms are extremely comfortable (we have stayed in Tuscany, Provance, Williamsburg and Maine), but the real discriminator is the "Wine Down" hour with the owners and the other guests. Our latest visit was with the new owners, and we enjoyed our stay even more than previous visits.
We stayed at the Inn last night for my husband's birthday. It was our first time at a B & B. Kim and Matt were wonderful, they were very welcoming and fun to talk with. Our room was just beautiful. We enjoyed the wine-down, complete with delicious snacks. They made us a dinner reservation at the Charlotte Hotel and Restaurant, which was excellent. The breakfast was terrific! Fresh fruits, yogurt, granola, fresh blueberry muffins, cheese soufflé, bacon and homemade cookies! We really enjoyed ourselves! Kim and Matt, we wish you much success with your new venture. You really love what you do, and it shows!
Matt and Kim are outstanding hosts. Their loving German Shepherd Freya was a special treat as well. Our room was cozy and well equipped. Having hot tea/coffee brought to your room every morning is such a special touch. Every need was met and we felt right at home. Onancock is a lovely town with nice restaurants in walking distance. We hope to one day return!!
This Inn was our best B&B experience to date. Kim, Matt and Freya did a outstanding job. Their attention to detail was impeccable. The wine down hour was a perfect pre-dinner activity. The appetizers and breakfast were fantastic. The Inn is perfectly located and within walking distance of several nice restaurants. The room (Tuscany) was cozy and romantic. The other rooms looked nice as well. This was simply a perfect get away. HIGHLY recommend this B&B
Kim and Matthew are definitely keeping up with the excellence of running the inn. We enjoyed spending time with them, especially during "wine-down"! Breakfast was superb, and all was immaculate as always. This was our fifth visit, first with Kim and Matthew in charge. Please keep up the good work! Wendy and Bill Lewis
A wonderful experience. Kim and Matt are your best friends from the moment they greet you.The appetizers, wine and great conversation made the stay that much more enjoyable. Don't miss this B&B on the Eastern Shore when passing through and needing a place to stay.
We arrived for our reservation and the innkeepers were surprised; they had mistakenly put us on the calendar for a day later. That being said, they dropped everything to make our stay happen and it worked out just fine. Loved the fact the inn was within walking distance of very nice restaurants and shops.
....but they had put our reservation on the wrong day. They scurried for a quick recovery and all was well. They served a quality wine with delicious cheese choices at happy hour. Breakfast was more than we could eat and scrumptious. Most enjoyable hosts who have given us something to chuckle about for years to come.
Our hosts were great cooks, both for breakfast foods and for wine-and-hors d'oeuvres-before-dinner. They were helpful in recommending restaurants and in making reservations for the Tangier ferry and a kayak excursion to Chatham Vineyards. We enjoyed the stay.
Lisa and Kris were great hosts when we recently stayed at The Inn at Onancock. They were friendly and helpful. The Inn is lovely and the location was perfect. Our room was very comfortable and all of our needs were met.
Lisa and Chris welcomed us with warm smiles. They offered hospitality that was unprecedented! The "wine down hour" gave us an opportunity to connect with them as well as the other guests. The chemistry that we all shared was wonderful!!
First rate facility run by top notch proprietors. We loved every moment and the food was superb. We will return in the future and highly recommend this establishment to friends and family. Thank you Kris and Lisa for your hospitality!!
