Three of us (Virginia Beach, Baltimore, and West Palm Beach) modified a Girlfriend's Getaway package into a Grandma's Getaway package to spend three nights under Sandra's impeccable care and pampering. As sisters, we were fine sharing one room and the portable bed was just as comfortable as the larger permanent bed. From the toffees on the table to the cheese plate at night, we couldn't have asked for better food. Sandra's breakfast offerings are scrumptious, including warm fresh muffins and a fruit cup with a delicious frosty lime syrup, to some of the most beautiful and delicious egg dishes I have ever had. I highly recommend the Eggs Sardou, but there were equal raves for Paul's Benedict and Sandra's Special Omelet. The rooms were spotless and well-appointed and it was obvious that comfort was a high priority when selecting linens, beds, and chairs. We were lucky to have fabulous weather that allowed for late afternoon wine and cheese on the front porch (Sandra even joined us for a bit), and a relaxing Sunday morning paper-read in the lovely little garden.
The value was superb, and Onancock is a hidden jewel on Virginia's Eastern Shore. The Second Friday Art Stroll through the galleries and shops was a real treat. Onancock's location makes it easy to explore many lovely offerings on the Eastern Shore, including the Barrier Islands Center in Eastville (15 minutes south) and Chincoteague-Assateague (40 minutes north). The trip back to Virginia Beach was an easy, relaxing 1.5-hour drive down the Eastern Shore and over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel. This little diversion to Onancock could easily become a habit, and the incredible value makes it do-able without breaking the travel bank.
