The family who runs the Inn have truly thought of every possible thing they can do to make your stay as comfortable as possible. It's beautiful, peaceful, and so friendly. We will be back. We cannot recommend it highly enough.

Green Features: The Inn is Virginia Green Certified, and they act accordingly.

Spent four wonderful days at the Inn at Tabbs Creek in August 2013. Each day started with locally roasted gourmet coffee and a fabulous breakfast all enjoyed in a tranquil setting with views of the water. I had a great time fishing out of a kayak and the Red Drum were plentiful in the East River and quite exciting to catch on light tackle. We enjoyed paddleboarding and kayaking and exploring the region. We loved our spacious comfortable room complete with king bed, jacuzzi, sitting room and views of the water. Can't wait to return.

My wife Gina and I met our friends (two other couples) at the Inn at Tabbs Creek. We stayed five days and had the best time ever. The rooms were so inviting and comfortable. The breakfasts were the best ever and our hosts, Lori and Greg, made us feel like we were part of the family. My friend went fishing off their dock and snagged a little fish. The next couple pulled in a 3 ft. shark. Imagine that! The Inn's pool was so refreshing. We took a boat tour - right off of their dock - and shucked oysters. I ate my first oyster ever ... not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Bikes are provided at the Inn ... took a ride before breakfast several times to enjoy the lush scenery. Can't wait to return.

My husband and I spent from Monday through Thursday at the Inn at Tabbs Creek and enjoyed every waking hour. This was our first B&B, so we were a bit leery of paying for an entire week and thought we could extended our stay once we arrived. They booked up so fast we did not have the opportunity to extend our stay, so don't delay when making your reservations.

The ambience is absolutely astounding. Take a walk through the garden paths and enjoy observing the beautiful flowers and the butterflies that are attracted to them. If you look hard enough you might even see a colorful lizard pass by your feet. Taking an afternoon dip in the pool was refreshing after spending most of our day either in the small town of Mathews or on one of the secluded beaches in the area. If you want to be unplugged, rest, relax, this is the place to go. The breakfasts that were cooked every morning were absolutely delightful to the taste buds. The rooms were clean and luxurious from the sheets, pillows, towels and the bed was absolutely fabulous. Greg and Lori supplied all of the amenities of home such as shampoo, conditioner, soap, beach towels, and they went above and beyond with fishing poles and makings for s’mores.

We are definitely going back, but this time it will be for an entire week. If you want action and adventure perhaps this is not the place for you. Lori, Greg, and Dave are wonderful people.

The inn has a beautiful and peaceful location. The innkeepers have done a great job of restoring the house and do their best to provide everything a guest might want or need. The breakfast is one of the best we have ever had at a B&B. Our room was clean and comfortable.

The Inn at Tabb’s Creek was a wonderful respite and beautiful setting which offered my husband and I the opportunity to get away for a few days and reconnect. Lori and Greg were welcoming and offered up their home for everyone to enjoy. From a relaxing afternoon dip in the pool to a campfire and s’ mores in the evening, we found ourselves happy just to sit back and enjoy the week. The breakfast was awesome, from the fresh produce to excellent casseroles and breads, it was well rounded without being too much. It was a great value and we will go again as well as share this experience with our friends.

Room Tip: The Tabbs Creek Room is a good value, however it is modestly sized.

This was our third time to the Inn at Tabb's Creek. As usual, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food at breakfast rivals any fancy restaurant we have ever been to. Many of the ingredients are fresh from their garden. The rooms are beautiful and clean. The dock is lovely. We love to walk out and sit on the dock and watch the sun go down. Greg and Lori are fantastic hosts who think of absolutely everything. We highly recommend the Inn to anyone!
