The B&B has a long stretch of beach facing the bay. When the weather cooperates, the sunset should be beautiful - we didn't get a chance to watch a nice sunset though. We stayed in the cheaper room, facing the woods and field. The room is spacious, which has a comfy bed and a couch, as well as a private bathroom. The room is very clean. My only complaint is the lack of lighting in or near the closet. The dining and living rooms downstairs are facing the bay and has a great view. The backyard is large and has a good view of the bay. So it's not a big deal for us to stay in the cheaper room and not having the seaview. There are deers roaming around nearby, so be careful driving in the early evening.
We were greeted by Mike, the friendly owner, who showed us around. Of the 2 nights that we were there, we've only seen him a couple of times. When we left, it was the helper who ran our credit card and said good bye to us. There was a helper cooking breakfast in the morning. Breakfast was fine, not spectacular, consists of eggs (not your choice), sausage/bacon, muffin, a small portion of fruits and orange juice.
Cape Charles is about 15 min north, where most restaurants and shops are located. The closest restaurant (on the highway) is 5-10 min away. The B&B is next to the wildlife refuge area and the visitor centre is 2 min away, where there is some good exhibits and an easy short walk to the marsh. Be careful driving on the highway as we've seen cops catching speeders.
