We recently spent two nights here and couldn't have been more pleased with every aspect of our stay. The hosts, Hank and Sandy, were gracious and welcoming, the room was clean, cozy and comfortable, and the breakfasts were absolutely delicious. We were able to walk to small shops, and food establishments. Chesapeake Bay View is the perfect get away for... More

I knew we were in trouble as we exited our car and walked up to the door. The stench was over powering. Once inside, the combined odor of cat urine, multiple litter boxes and dog feces were blinding. My husband and I were hustled into a room by the male host, told to sit down, and with my suitcase still... More

I am sorry you had such a difficult time. The only thing I might suggest is that you do your own research and do not rely on someone else to book your reservation.

I accidentally found Cape Charles on the map and thought this B&B would be perfect since we really wanted to have a view of the beach and quick access; we were not disappointed!

My husband and I recently enjoyed our first stay at a B & B. Hank and Sandy really set the standard high for future travels. We enjoyed beach views and truly delicious gourmet breakfasts served up in style. Beyond seeing to our comfort, our hosts provided plenty of ideas for activities in the area. Thanks Hank and Sandy!

We spent 4 nights here. Hank and Sandy were great. Very welcoming, friendly and provided us with plenty of information and suggestions. The breakfasts were delicious and just that made the stay worthwhile! They also easily accommodated us since we are vegetarian.

This is a below average quality Bed & Breakfast. First they have allowed cats ( which I love to go to the bathroom in the house) You can smell it the minute you open the door. We love dogs and have 3, but I would not think it wise to have dogs in a public place like a Bed &... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our home is available for weekly rentals. It is one of the three "grand old ladies" that were built across from the beach facing directly west into the sunset. Built in 1927 for a wealthy Cape Charles merchant, we have made extensive renovations to restore its grand character and create one of the most comfortable and relaxing homes on the Virginia eastern shore. Its large rooms, 10 foot ceilings, unique views of the Bay and fabulous sunsets offer guests an unsurpassed Cape Charles experience on the Chesapeake Bay. Enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning, or a cool drink at the end of the day on our 75 foot wide front porch with its great view of the Chesapeake Bay and Cape Charles beach. The Chesapeake Bay View has central air conditioning, Wi-Fi and three very comfortable and relaxing guest rooms with flat screen HD-TVs. ... more   less
