Mansion House B&B
Ranked #4 of 4 Snow Hill B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 December 2006

I have been staying at this Inn since they opened. I am guessing it is going on close to 7 or 8 years now. It continues to be my favorite retreat from the Washington area and I make sure to get down there at least once in the spring, summer and fall. All three seasons have something different.

Carol is phenomenal in the kitchen, and if the tides and wind are right, you may even get a chance to catch some fish with George.

The Inn is gorgeous, sits right on the Chincoteague Bay and is quiet and inviting. You can spend your day reading and relaxing in one of the beautifully decorated rooms, down in the large main living room, or out front on one of the porches overlooking the bay.

I can't recommend this inn highly enough!!!

What blew me away was the location. It sits on the water's edge. The water and the horizion go on forever. The sound of the gentle waves give you an instant feeling of tranquilty. As we surveyed the manicured lawn and the restored historic mansion we knew this was the place for some true R&R. We had just driven 6 exhausting hours from NYC but seeing the place gave us a burst of energy and we couldn't wait to see inside. The house is nicely appointed with lovely antiques. The living room has two fire places with warm colors of burgandy next to the wood furniture. Then there is a charming sitting room and dining room. The foyer has a well stocked hospitality bar. Upstairs, there is a balcony with a hammock and chairs. We loved our cozy water vu room filled with artwork and bric a brac. That night we saw the moon rise from our window. The moon light glisented on the water. We decided to help ourseleves to the hospitality bar and sit outside on the porch to enjoy the moonlight dance. Talk about romantic. The next morinig we saw a spectacular sunrise. We had a wonderful breakfast of fresh peaches and pears (from the backyard), eggs, cheese grits and tomatoes (also from the backyard). Everything was so fresh and delicious. The innkeepers are warm, freindly and full of suggestions for things to do. We swam right off the dock in front of the house. We went to the beach at a nearby wild life state park and one night we went to Ocean City. We had such a fab time that it was hard to leave but we will certainly be back. I really wanted to keep this secreat retreat to myself but my husband advised that if they don't get guests they won't be around and we hope they are around for many more years to come.

Visiting the Mansion was like staying with family. The history of the house and previous occupants was facinating. George, the proprietor, and the neighbors in Public Landing were warm and welcoming. We loved the area and are ready to go back.

Mansion House presents a perfect setting--at the end of a road on Chicoteague Bay--with all one could want in a B&B. The c. 1835 house has been carefully restored with all modern modern conveniences (but no TVs in telephone in the rooms). Two of the four rooms look on the bay; all have scrumptious queen-sized beds, private baths, and wonderful touches. One of the innkeepers is a serious chef, so the breakfasts are gourmet treats. And for four or more guests, you can also arrange a private dinner. The public rooms, on the first floor, are spacious and inviting, for reading or just looking out.
