“Love the Channel Bass Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

The Channel Bass Inn, was Wonderful. We've just returned after spending several nights. Even on a busy 4th of July weekend, the Inn was quiet and was the perfect retreat.
I can't say enough about how much Barbara and David go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They had everything we needed. Chairs and towels for the beach and ice coolers too. Plus ice buckets for wine, once we returned from dinner. All I had to do was ask, and whatever I needed Barbara and David provided. Barbara made dinner reservations for us too. She will steer you in the right direction. In addition to all the above, what I loved the best, is that Channel Bass Inn allows for well behaved dogs...Our corgi, Darcey loved the Inn, and Barbara and David's cooking. Breakfasts and the Tea were delicious...Scones yum!! We can't wait to come back!!

Room Tip: We choose the Ambleside Suite, and had plenty of room to stretch out.

We just got back from Chincoteague and stayed at the Channel Bass Inn. The place is very nice. Clean, the location is great. The breakfast are very good too. Barbara and Dave try very hard to make your stay nice.

The Channel Bass Inn is adorable. Barbara and David are the most gracious hosts. They go out of their to make your stay enjoyable yet respect your privacy. Barbara makes the most delicious breakfast and for my fellow coffee lovers she also makes French pressed coffee ( that is to die for!) She made reservations for us at the Village and we had the best table. Meanwhile, David set us up with bikes, coolers and sunscreen so we could venture off to the beach.

We also took a tour on the Daisey cruise- a must do to see the wild ponies! I also recommend 'Sea Star' for a quick lunch, the food there was great. We had a fabulous time and would not stay anywhere else if we ever go back! thanks again Barbara and David!

We were stay at another Inn on the island but extended our stay one night so we could watch the rocket launch at Wallops Island NASA Visitors Center. Our original Inn was booked so we called Channel Bass Inn and we got a one night weekend reservation. Now we have been to LOTS of B&Bs and Inns and they don't usually do one nighters - but these hosts were Very accomodating. David even told us when we checked out of our first Inn to call and see if we could check in early which we did and they made sure our room was ready. VERY NICE! The location is right in the town - walking distance from shop and restaurants. Many thanks to the loving and kind, Barbara and David!

We spent a week at the channel bass inn, sadly we didn't meet Barbara but David was a wonderful host ensuring our stay was comfortable and fun throughout the week. He booked boat trips and restaurants for us. We had such a relaxing time and loved the fact that we shared our breakfast with other folk staying at the inn each morning and not separated out onto individual tables. The room was lovely nice and cool in the warm weather. We used bikes one day beach equipment coolers with ice blocks provided.

The Channel Bass Inn is quiet with great amenities. The room was well appointed. The breakfast was delicious. We loved that we could borrow bikes, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach towels and small coolers. It made our traveling very easy. They were very accommodating.

This was our third stay at Chincoteague, and by far the most relaxing and enjoyable. David and Barbara were extremely hospitable and accomodating to our every need, and to that of our 10 year old Westie. Our stay was four nights in the Topcliffe room, which had the most comfortable bed of any previously visited Inn. The ambiance, furnishings, and garden was exquisite and appointments were in excellent taste. These add value and charm to a visit that cannot be duplicated at 5-star chain resort (we've stayed at more than a few). The breakfasts and teas were to die for and exceeded our expectations. When we relayed our early Sunday departure (avoid traffic at the Bay Bridge) Barbara and David packed a delicious salmon and bagels breakfast to go...and threw in some yummy scones and muffins as gratis. Many hotels/Inns boast of their accomodations, and some do deliver, however, the Channel Bass Inn is the only one we have experienced in 30 years that actually exceeds over and above expectations and advertisement. We are planning our next stay as I write. So thanks again, and Godspeed to Barbara and David.
