What a pleasant surprise! We booked the weekend looking for a get away in the middle of nowhere with very low expectations. Lori and Greg made it special in every way. We plan on coming back with the rest of the family next year. Great place, great view, great service, great food, great hosts, GREAT TIME!!!

Room Tip: Choose one of the suites - roomy and separate from main house

Just returned from a weekend stay at the Inn at Tabbs Creek. This was our second stay, and it was just as nice as the first time. This time we stayed in the East River Suite which has a lovely sitting room area. Nice place to sit to drink your wine and have appetizers if you cannot sit outside. It was a bit chilly to sit outside in November -- though, they have added a lovely firepit!

Other additions since our last visit -- you can now rent kayaks from the Inn as well as paddleboards. Nice addition. We bring our own kayaks,and the Inn has a really nice launch area.


Breakfasts were once again amazing, and Greg is more than willing to share recipes.

We definitely plan to return, so many kayak areas to explore and the Inn at Tabbs Creek offers a great location and wonderful hospitality.

My husband and I celebrated our 37th wedding anniversary at the Inn this past July. It is definitely off the beaten path but well worth the journey! We were warmly greeted upon arrival and taken to our room (The Chesapeake Suite). It was lovely - very comfortable with views of the water from our bedroom. The breakfasts were amazing - each day Greg dazzled us with something new and delicious (loved the asparagus/sun-dried tomatoes strata!). Greg & Lori are so warm and friendly that we felt as if we were old friends. The sunsets from the deck each evening were peaceful and beautiful. We also enjoyed the local restaurants - especially Southwind Pizza - which offers much more than just pizza! We definitely look forward to a return visit!

Room Tip: The Garden Cottage offers more privacy with only 3 rooms - two of which are suites, and is just a fe...

Off the beaten path. It's quiet and cozy. We celebrated our anniversary there and loved it. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Beautiful waterfront on the creek, and we rented kayaks and paddled to the river. Quiet roads are great for bicycle riding. Nice breakfast, and the overall service was outstanding. Hosts are attentive to every detail. We look forward to returning sometime.

Everything was GREAT! This was a special weekend (50th birthday) and we couldn't have picked a better Inn! Wine and cheese reception on Saturday night was nice, breakfasts were excellent and unique, room was big and comfortable. Restaurants in nearby Mathews were very good. We certainly will return.

Room Tip: Really enjoyed the East River Suite...very private!

A lovely relaxing bed and breakfast! The breakfasts are wonderful, strawberries from their garden, farm fresh eggs from local source, coffee always plentiful and hot! We also enjoyed a wine and cheese get together with the other guests on Saturday afternoon. We borrowed bikes from Greg and Lori and they provided us with helmets, water bottles and a detailed map so that we could traverse the area without riding on the main highway. When we returned, we enjoyed soaking in the in room jacuzzi to relax old sore muscles! It was a wonderful quiet getaway on a beautiful fall weekend!
