“Wonderful beautiful place to stay!”
Reviewed 8 March 2013

We had an amazing three days and two nights at the Inn at Tabbs Creek. The views are amazing, the room lovely, and the breakfasts are fantastic! Lori and Greg are warm and friendly. It is wonderful that they are running a "green" establishment. It is off the beaten track but so worthwhile to visit.

Thanks for your kind review, and so glad you enjoyed your visit with us. We are off the beaten path for sure, but found that it actually works to our advantage as our guests are able to get away from the usual hustle and bustle of everyday life....we definitely take things a bit slower around here ;) Best to you both!

We had an amazing and memorable stay at The Inn at Tabbs Creek. This isn't your regular old B&B, the furnishings and decor are very modern and fresh but the atmosphere still has a traditional feel. We really appreciated the effort taken to make the inn extremely eco-friendly, and the commitment to use local products/foods/beverages.

Our room (East River Suite) was just lovely, the bed was one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in, the jacuzzi tub was great, everything was very clean, and there were many small touches that we really appreciated. The home and grounds are just beautiful, a perfect environment for relaxation. But, above all of that, our favorite part of the inn was....breakfast! Greg is an amazing chef and our breakfast both mornings was impeccable. I am rarely as impressed with a meal as I was during our time there. The first morning we had sausage, eggs, fruit, and a to-die-for German apple pancake with caramel sauce, and the second morning we had potato cakes with creamed spinach and poached eggs, fruit, bacon, and strawberry french toast casserole (I'd love to have some of the recipes!). We were stuffed both days and didn't need to eat again until dinner!

Greg was a wonderful host, a wealth of information about the estate and the area, and a pleasure to chat with. We really enjoyed getting to know him a little during our short stay. Even though Mathews County seems to thrive more during the summer due to it's proximity to the water, we found a winter getaway there to be just as charming. We visited some of the local businesses and restaurants, and spent the rest of the time watching movies in our room and enjoying the inn. The only outdoor activity we took part in this time was horseshoes, but we look forward to returning in warmer months to take full advantage of all the activities the area, and the inn have to offer.

Our stay truly couldn't have been more perfect, and at under a two hour drive from Richmond, we will definitely be recommending that all our friends visit. Can't say enough good things about this place!

Room Tip: We were lucky to be the only couple at the inn during the days we stayed, and we were able to check...

My husband and I stayed at the Inn at Tabbs Creek last summer. Everything about our stay was spectacular. On our first morning, we had to wake up extra early for a guided fishing trip in the area. Lori was so kind to prepare us a delicious breakfast to take with us. The next day we had salmon omelettes, and later in the day steamed oysters fresh from the bay! The entire stay was the prefect combination of feeling like a guest and feeling at home. This has become our new favorite B&B. If we're in the area again, we'll certainly be back!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Captain's Room which had a lovely view of the water.

Thank You so much for taking the time to review our Inn. It was great to meet you, and glad that you enjoyed your time with us as well as going out with Captain Chris for fishing...our guests love him, and he seems to have an uncanny ability to know where the fish are ;) Would love to see you again if you make it back our way, but in the meantime wish you the best.

My husband and I just returned from a three night stay over Valentine's Day weekend. The Inn far exceeded our expectations with incredible food, clean and welcoming rooms and gracious hosts. Greg and Lori are personable, unpretentious and happy to share information on all kinds of subjects including restaurants, sight-seeing and other activities around Mathews. I can’t say enough about Greg’s cooking - the breakfasts changed every day and were simply outstanding! The Inn itself has just the right mix of old world charm and new world convenience. It has been lovingly restored by Greg and Lori and the personal touches in every room helped to make us feel right at home. We plan on returning to the area in the near future and can’t wait to visit our new friends again!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Chesapeake Room which was actually in a separate building from the main house. I l...

Stayed here for Presidents weekend and was not disappointed. Everything was open to the guest to use. The owner recommended the Sandpiper Reef for dinner great choice. The rooms have Kuerig coffee makers which I thought was very nice touch. Breakfast was amazing the pancakes were very good. I had poached eggs for the first time and they were delicious.

So glad you enjoyed your visit with us, and we were able to turn you on to poached eggs :) Glad you liked the Keurig machines...we just added them several months ago to the common area at Inn and the Bay cottage rooms so that guests can get a freshly brewed cup at any time. Take care, and best to you both!

Absolutely no complaints from us! Greg and Lori were super accommodating in everything we asked, they even sent over a private cheese platter for us because we wanted alone time together instead of doing the group wine tasting. We can't wait to go back when the weather is warmer so that we can enjoy all the outdoor activities they have available. The food was delicious, the room was clean and cozy, and the scenery and quietness of the property was perfect for our romantic weekend celebrating our anniversary.
