My friend Greg and I spent a recent weekend at Inn at Tabbs Creek. After grueling travel and work experiences in recent days, this place was a definite JOY for us! The setting was filled with sweet views and pristine quiet, peace of heart everywhere. The world is a 'right place' when you are at The Inn at Tabbs Creek... I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys an out of the way, peaceful and nurturing setting with beautiful water views and sunsets. Tasteful decorating, attractive and comfortable furnishings, extraordinary breakfasts, lots of relaxing things to do, and charming local towns and environs to explore. Lori and Greg were excellent hosts - thanks you guys! You were just what the doctor ordered!

The Inn gets better every year, Peggy and return to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Enjoy Lori and Greg...the cat...and even David. Truly hope to make it back next year for our 48th.

This is a special place. We had a relaxed and idyllic stay with our hosts Lori and Greg at their Inn located on a beautiful inlet of the Chesapeake with glorious sunsets. It was the perfect place for rechargind and resting. Our room, the Captain's Room, overlooked the water and was beautifully furnished and comfortable. They have seen to every detail and the breakfasts were delicious and offered a variety for all. They have picnic baskets available for lunch or dinner with delectable choices. We particularly enjoyed the sunset cruise, well worth the price, with Trey Sowers, the charming owner of Chapel Creek Oyster Co. who told us about the area and the oysters business and if you like oysters they were special and delicious. We enjoyed visiting with the other guests but found plenty of privacy as well. The small town has several restaurants and we had a delicious crab cake and fried oysters at Richardson's Cafe in the old Rexall store,comfortable and relaxed. There are several sites to visit or you can just stay at the Inn and relax.

Room Tip: Each room is charming and loved the Captains Room.

Thanks so much for your generous review of our property, and glad you got to relax and unwind for a few days. So happy you enjoyed the picnic baskets and we are really excited to be working with Trey on the boat cruises. He is a great guy and grows a mean oyster too! You can now find him under Mathews Deadrise Charters.

Thanks again, and we enjoyed meeting you both!

The location of the Inn is idyllic. Tucked in a small inlet off the Chesapeake Bay, it is quiet, peaceful and beautiful. You can enjoy a beautiful sunset from the terrace, or even better, sitting in an Adirondack chair on the dock that juts out into the inlet.
Accommodation was very comfortable. We stayed in the Captain's Room on the upper level. It overlooks the inlet at the front and side and a lovely garden on the right.
Lorie and Greg, the hosts, provided a very welcoming atmosphere, making us feel completely at home.
Breakfast was great with a variety of dishes for all tastes.
We had a great time and thoroughly recommend the Inn for a relaxing stay

Last time we arrived in winter, and loved the coziness and quiet. This time we visited in early June. Glorious weather -- beautiful sunsets -- plenty of folks around to chat with but plenty of space for privacy too. Fabulous food at breakfast and beautiful room. No pretension. We'd come back here over and over!

We have been in Mathews County VA many times and on the occasion of our granddaughters high school graduation, we stayed an the Inn at Tabbs Creek. The accommodations, the owners and the location were all wonderful. Our only regret was that we were so busy with family events that we did not have all the time we wanted to enjoy this beautiful place. Although we have family living in the immediate area, I will be looking for excuses to stay at the Inn again.

Just returned from a weekend at the Inn. Beautiful property. A great place to relax and recharge. Loved the kayaks and stand-up paddle boards. Greg and Lori are fabulous hosts. Be sure you don't miss breakfast. Can't wait to get back!

Room Tip: We stayed in a suite, which was perfect for our small group of friends.

Thank you so much for your kind review and it was so nice to see you again! We really enjoy getting people out on the water to see more of the wildlife and history of the bay be it by kayak, SUP board and boat. We especially love to give Stand Up Paddleboard lessons and show people how fun and easy it is...we were hooked after our first lesson 4 years ago. Thanks again, and looking forward to seeing you guys again.
All the Best!
