“Wonderful B and B”
Reviewed 7 July 2008

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Garden and Sea Inn over July 4th (2008) weekend. We found it totally relaxing, and within close proximity of Chincoteague, Assateague, and other sites. We initially wanted to find a B & B on Chincoteague, but the drive to the island from the Garden and Sea Inn is very short, and the location is very peaceful and quiet. The innkeepers were very friendly and helpful, and they prepared superb breakfasts that left us full enough that we did not eat lunch any of the three days that we stayed there. We left the inn very well rested. It is a pet-friendly inn, so our dog enjoyed her stay, as well.

Stayed July 2008

We only got to stay at the inn one night but wish we could have stayed longer. The grounds and house are beautiful and a real treat to explore. We stayed in the Garden House which is seperate from the main house. We very much enjoyed our room with a whirlpool and screned in porch. The room was very clean, no evidence of pets. It was a very nice surprize to find the parlor area had a little mini gym which I did not see advertised. Also, the port wine and snacks was a nice touch.
Breakfast was very good, blueberry pancakes with a delicious sauce. I'm pretty picky about my coffee and theirs was excellant! Thomas, the innkeeper, offered us a pack to take home which was very nice.
He and his wife Dorothy, are an enjoyable couple to talk with and run the place very well. Would definitely come back again and recommend it to other travelers.

Thomas and Dorothee, the Garden and Sea Inn's new innkeepers, are wonderful! My companion and I stayed at this Inn for three nights in early May. The Inn is a few miles from Chincoteague and is actually made up of three houses with lovely, well-landscaped grounds. There are only two or three guest rooms in each building, making it quiet and private. We found the Inn to be comfortable, very clean, and charming. Even though this is a dog-friendly B&B, there was no evidence of dogs in our room or in any of the public spaces. The enormous breakfasts are served in a dining room with small, private tables -- great for those of us who don't like to talk in the morning! The meals were delicious and well-prepared, including eggs Florentine and mango-peach pancakes. The breakfasts at the inn were by far the most memorable meals we ate on our trip. Thomas and Dorothee are knowledgeable about the area, warm, and accommodating. We'll certainly be back!

  • Liked — Private, quiet, comfortable, and wonderful breakfasts
  • Disliked — You'll need to drive a few miles to get anywhere

Tom and Sara Baker, the incredible owners of the Garden and Sea Inn, have passed the torch to new owners Thomas and Dorothy Renn. Usually such a change means upheaval and worry to those who have made such a place a part of their lives. No problem here! Tom and Doro are charming, talented and eager to make your stay as marvelous as before. This romantic, homey getaway is about the best you'll find. People have been coming here every year for 15 years, storing up happy memories and building lasting friendships. This is my third stay with Layla the Therapy Sheltie, and we plan to come every summer. There's so much to do -- the beach, boating, fishing -- all within easy reach. Even if it rains, you're cozy sipping tea or wine in your French country suite or on one of the wide, welcoming porches. Welcome Tom and Doro -- I'll see you in June!

  • Liked — It's like home.
  • Disliked — I only had a few days off to stay!
