A stay at the Freemason Inn is the complete opposite of a stay at one of the nearby chain glass tower hotels. However, you give up nothing in terms of accommodations. The Inn is a short walk to Granby Street for dining and night life. And, a very nice cafe is around the corner for morning coffee and evening live music.
Cape Charles is a magical place; and Bay Haven was the best choice for us for our once night stay. Such a beautiful house. Our room was perfect. Comfortable bed and pillows; very clean bathroom. Tammy gave us some helpful hints about where to eat, and Jim's breakfast the next morning was delicious. If you go, you must walk on the beach- it is perfect.
We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home, tastefully decorated without all the dust-catching frou-frou that overwhelms so many b&b interiors. Breakfast was excellent. We had a lovely afternoon in the garden and walking around the charming neighborhood. Our dinner at Voila, the restaurant just around the corner, was wonderful too. The Chrysler Museum is within walking distance, highly recommended also.
One of the best B&Bs we have stayed at. Engaging hosts (both Carol and Bruce) were a wealth of information and hospitality. Their involvement in the community over many years showed their commitment to the town and their level of service to customers. We'll recommend them to all our friends and family. Cheers! Ray & Denise
Nothing makes a guest more welcome than southern hospitality. Jim & Tammy have an welcome mat that never ends! From current and upcoming events, knowledge of the area, to a breakfast event that will leave you filled with delicious fresh cuisine and a smile on your face. This place is it! This was our second trip to the coast to visit Cape Charles and its amazing residents. Being a last minute adventure less planned, Tammy & Jim welcomed us like old friends. The house with an amazing porch, no matter the season, a butler pantry for late night snacks or a glass of premium wine never disappoints. We can not say enough about the quality of our room; comfy, quiet, clean and always a good nights sleep! We brought our sport bikes this trip, rode the coast to Chincoteague, enjoyed lunch in Cape Charles at the newest restaurant Gourmet Alley, ice cream at Brown Dog, never disappoints for an anytime dessert and of course shopping at Periwinkles resale shop is a must for any women of high end, quality fashion on a budget. Have you visited Central Park in Cape Charles? Checkout the Summer Concert Series presented the Cape Charles Citizens for Central Park. This FREE event is an evening well spent with family and friends right in this Inn's back yard. Bay Haven Inn is your place for a warm, friendly welcome and will leave you with a longing to return again and again!
Bay Haven Inn, enough said!! This is my 3rd stay, and I must say, it just gets better and better! Jim and Tammy were born to own and run the Bay Haven Inn, at least it certainly seems that way. Hospitality just pours out of these two; the community involvement and contribution is astounding; the rooms are perfect, beautiful and comfy, and the food, I just cannot say enough. From the famous ham and sweet potato biscuits to the "oooey gooey", to having Elvis in the building to the special coffee, should I go on? Absolutely fabulous. The morning gatherings at the dining room table feel like home. They sit down with you like family and make you feel so welcome and at home. The amount of knowledge of the house and its history is just more than cool and their suggestions for area attractions and eateries are spot on!!! Go! Enjoy! There with the best of friends and the BHI experience always makes it so special. Know and trust you are in good hands at Bay Haven Inn with Jim and Tammy, our Cape Charles go to!!
The Cape Charles House was the perfect getaway with impeccable service and decadent dining. The hosts and staff were there for our every need to ensure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable from start to finish.
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Freemason Inn for 5 days and didn't want to leave. The room was very comfortable and the jacuzzi tub was amazing! The best part of our stay though was breakfast. Mrs. Sherry was a phenomenal cook and fantastic host. She was very friendly and sat with us at breakfast most mornings (we invited her too). I highly recommend the Freemason Inn!
The hosts were very welcoming. The accommodations were comfortable and spacious. I couldn't have asked for a better first experience at a bead and breakfast. I highly recommend the Cape Charles House. Julie and Don Fry
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bay Haven Inn of Cape Charles! As first time visitors we looked to Tammy and Jim for recommendations of things to do during our stay. Everything they suggested we tried and had one of the best, most relaxing, fun,vacations we have ever had! The Inn is beautiful and spotless. Our room was small but lovely and comfortable. The breakfasts were amazing! Cape Charles and the Bay Haven Inn are charming, we will be back.
Overall stay was good, I love B&Bs, but the room could have been cleaner (found hairs from past guests and small ants kept showing up). The Inn Keeper is a free spirit and quite eccentric, and sometimes forgetful. Breakfasts were pretty tasty and differed every day, and though I appreciated the Inn Keeper's friendly nature, I am not a morning person and did not want to have long conversations over breakfast. The wine glasses should be cleaned better, they all had finger smudges and none were completely clean. The good part is the ambiance and the overall house is elegant and authentic.
This was a first experience for my wife and I using BedandBreakfast.com, and we were very satisfied. Cape Charles Bed & Breakfast was everything that was advertised, and the pictures posted online actually matched the experience. Bruce & Carol were outstanding hosts who respected our privacy and yet were available at all times with loads of information. The breakfasts were truly gourmet; Carol is an outstanding cook. Cape Charles itself is not a beach town; its a quaint fishing town nestled on the coast with lots of history, very serene and peaceful. Cape Charles Bed & Breakfast is right at home in Cape Charles; it was almost like stepping back in time, and that is the experience we were seeking. The cleanliness of the rooms and the grounds was superb, and there were plenty of rocking chairs on a spacious porch for those who want to catch up on a little reading material. We would return to this place in a heartbeat. It was worth every dime and the long drive to get there. -Jesse & Jamie (Vale, NC)
We selected the Cape Charles House B&B based on the reviews we read, and we were not disappointed. Carol and Bruce were gracious hosts, provided exceptional service, and offered helpful information about the dining and sightseeing options. Our room was the smallest but quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious. We enjoyed our stay and will stop here again. We highly recommend the Cape Charles House. Nancy & John
Awesome three day get away with the wife. The owners Phil and Peatie are nothing short of amazing. The amount of details that go into ensuring you stay and breakfast are perfect is astounding. I'll explain. Do you want coffee, yes, what brand and how strong. Going all the way down to the brand of coffee we want and strength of it, IMO is above and beyond. The menu they have for breakfast may be the best I have ever seen. I would honestly say the two breakfasts I had at this place were the best breakfasts I have had ever. Eggs, ham, and hashbrown were cook perfectly. I can not say enough about this place. Very quite and peaceful setting. We also decided prior to arrival to have a couples massage and once again was awesome. This place is for sure a place we're me and my wife will come back to on a yearly bases. I appreciate the pampering giving to us by Phil and Peatie, these guys are really good people. You want find a cleaner, more peaceful place around. Give it a go. Sam and Rachael
Beautiful Historic Home in super location. Jim and Tammy are wonderful hosts and full of useful information. As first time visitors to the area Tammy served as our personal concierge to this delightful area of Virginia. Buffy and Fred
From the moment we arrived, Rich and Sharon really made us feel 'at home'. Our room was small but tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The great room invites you to sit and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and sample Rich's home made cookies after a day of exploring. The highlight of the stay was definitely the one-of-a-kind, gourmet breakfast! Rich truly excels in the kitchen and Sharon's artistic touches to the presentation are comparable to any highly rated restaurant. Highly recommend!
Bay Haven is Beautiful and perfectly located for walking in Cape Charles; the beauty and warmth of the home is exceeded only by the welcome and warmth of Tammy & Jim. Other circumstances delayed our coming and we expected cold, bare-bones accommodation on this late Fall date, but were instead greeted with the house brightly lit and abuzz, fabulous interior and exterior holiday decorations, warm fireplaces, a beautiful room, Tammy's warm welcome, tour, and tales, and a delightful breakfast (much from the garden), with Tammy, timed and designed for our palates. Bay Haven served as a wonderful base for our walks about town, for learning more of local history, and references to other places of interest.
We really enjoyed our stay to mark our 10 year Wedding Anniversary at the Cape Charles House B&B. Bruce and Carol the B&B owners are amazing Inn keepers. They are lovely people with generous southern hospitality. This is our 3rd stay at the B&B and its always just like we remember the first time- relaxed atmosphere, cozy room, amazing breakfast!! We love the cute downtown Cape Charles area and the beach- you can really immerse yourself in the quiet little town here. It's a great time! Thanks Bruce and Carol for making our 10 year anniversary trip one to remember. -Mary and Colin Sheppard
We loved our stay so much the first time that we simply had to come back. This time we brought my sister and mother and their spouses. Tammy and Jim are such gracious hosts and made us all feel welcome and part of the family. I simply can't say enough about the warmth and hospitality we felt during our entire stay. If you want a bed-and-breakfast in Cape Charles and you want the best experience the Bay Haven Inn is the only place to go!
I was so pleasantly surprised by the charm of this lovely BnB. I had to be up very early each day and coffee was set to accommodate me. The host was exceptional, leaving me be when I wanted to do my own thing yet very available should I feel like having company. She made great recommendations on local "gems". The room itself was SO cozy I did not want to leave each morning. Tip: give yourself an extra day so you can stay in bed one day!
We made reservations 2 months in advance for the Alyce Wilson to attend the October Eastern shore bird festival..The entire B n B is set up in a plush Victorian style that created a subtle ambience conducive to rest and relaxation...The 8:30 breakfast was more than ample to satisfy most palettes and the table is set as one would expect in that era of the day...That being stated, Tammy and Jim provide the proper setting that one would expect of a traditional B n B...Just sit back and enjoy the ambience ....We would had stayed the extra day but felt compelled to let Matthew rule our last day.....Ken n Johanna/Warrenton, Va..
We had the pleasure of staying here for two nights last week and it was wonderful. The room was lovely and the bed was very comfortable. Our hosts were so welcoming and knowledgable about the area offering lots of ideas for dining and sightseeing. We especially enjoyed our 5 o'clock wine and home made cheese spread sitting in the porch. Both breakfasts were huge and absolutely delicious. We would recommend this B&B very highly.
