At the last minute, we decided to take a drive up US 13 to visit the Eastern Shore area of Virginia. We decided to stay in Onancock and found the Colonial Manor Inn through the Chamber of Commerce website. When we called they were very helpful and friendly on the phone. Upon our arrival, we found a very charming, welcoming B&B. The accommodations were surprisingly spacious and comfortable. Our room was located off the main hallway but was very private and quiet. The room also had a separate entrance, which was convenient. Most enjoyable were the delicious breakfasts cooked by Carol and served by Linda, the proprietors. We enjoyed the morning chats around the table with Linda, Carol and the other visitors, learning much about the area and where to visit. We would highly recommend the Colonial Manor Inn and look forward to a return visit.
