My daughter and her husband have visited The Cape Charles House in the past, and just raved about the hospitality, the food, the accommodations, the town, and the entire experience! I was so excited when she told me that a visit with her to this special place would be my birthday gift this fall. We arrived on Friday evening, to be greeted by Carol with a warm hug in the foyer before leading us to our lovely room. After dropping our bags, we met Carol in the kitchen to pick up our "welcome tray" of wine and homemade herb cheese with crackers, which we casually enjoyed in the living room before heading out for dinner at a local pub. After a fitful night's sleep, we made our way downstairs around 8:00 for a cup of fabulous coffee and the aroma of Carol's gourmet breakfast preparations, with divine dishes featuring ingredients fresh from their own garden. The meal did not disappoint - in fact, it was the highlight of the visit! Right up there with the exceptionally warm and comfortable atmosphere and relaxing spirit that Carol and Bruce offer so genuinely - and the totally enjoyable conversation we had with our fellow houseguests. I can't wait to return to Cape Charles - and, especially, to The Cape Charles House!
