“Wonderfully Relaxing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2013

My wife & I enjoyed the warm hospitality of Lori & Greg, the gourmet breakfasts prepared by Greg, the grounds,
the peacefulness & scenery. Enjoyed easy ride on Tabbs Inn-provided bikes, to the Chesapeake Bay.
Highly recommend! We look forward to our next stay!

My wife and I just spent three nights at "The Inn". Greg and Lori and Lori's brother David, made our visit absolutely "the best"! Breakfast was letter perfect. They were decorating with all natural locally available materials, and what a great job they were doing. Wish we could spend Christmas at "The Inn at Tabbs Creek"!!!!
Greg and Lori are perfect host and hostess. Can not wait to return at our first opportunity!

Room Tip: We love all the rooms, but usually choose either the Chesapeake Suite or East River Suite. But we lo...

My wife and I needed to unplug and forget everything for a few days -- found this Inn via a web search and are we ever glad we did. Greg and Lori are doing it right -- the most important aspect of a B&B is to feel immediately comfortable, and they have mastered the art. The property is beautiful, the rooms are superb, and the breakfasts and amenities are absolutely outstanding.
We didn't leave the property except to take long walks and go into Matthews for dinner -- about 3 miles away -- four different restaurants and four fantastic meals.

We've stayed in dozens of B&Bs and the Inn at Tabbs Creek is a the very top of our list. It won't be long before you'll have to make reservations months in advance!

Room Tip: If you're going to be spending time in your room reading, relaxing, etc -- we recommend a suite!

This was our third visit to the Inn at Tabbs Creek and our first visit during the fall. We love coming here to rest and relax. Greg and Lori do an amazing job! The breakfasts every morning are awesome, delicious, and memorable. Greg's cooking is one reason we keep coming back...the cheesy grits, the biscuits, the oatmeal pancakes...yum! We've stayed three times in the East River Suite and really look forward to visiting again. There's a lot of cool activities - watching the fish at night circle the light submerged off the dock, hanging out at the firepit, playing bocce, horseshoes, or cornhole. The area has some really good restaurants and Bethel Beach is a great place to enjoy the bay. We will certainly visit again!

Room Tip: We like the East River Suite. It's very big, great big bed, sitting area, and jacuzzi.

Greg and Lori made us feel immediately at home in this lovely bed and breakfast inn, which sits at the end of a lane on a finger of the Chesapeake Bay. Any question was answered, anything you needed was at hand. Sit on the dock overlooking the water with a glass of local wine, oar make a fire in the fire pit, or go out on a canoe or kayak. It was the ultimate relaxing experience and our hosts set the tone - so welcoming - and Greg cooked up amazing breakfasts that kept us full all day. Both Lori and Greg have lovingly renovated this old property and made it a top notch bed and breakfast. The decor in the rooms, the small touches of painting and furniture are amazing. Bring a book, the doors are always open to grab a snack in the main house and simply relax.

Green Features: Thanks to Lori and Greg for making this inn environmentally friendly.

The quiet, the dock, the water view...excellent hosts...comfortable rooms. That's part of why we hope to come back again.
We've stayed in some Virginia B & B's that were stuffy, over-priced or w/ inconsiderate, noisy houseguests. Not The Inn at Tabbs Creek!
Great place to get away from urban day-to-day. Bring a book but their Library is nice, too.
We hope prices remain stable--it's a great spot to visit!
Thank you for another relaxing break--hope to return before too long.

Room Tip: All the rooms in the house are good--we've stayed in 2 of them--slept great. It's a beautifu...

From one year to this, the experience at the Inn has only gotten better! This year we were in the Captain's Room, which boasts of a great view of the water. I really liked this room (I really liked our room last year too!), and loved that everything was so comfortable. The bed was fantastic for sleeping, and the decor was soothing. Overall, the room was just perfect for us.
Breakfast, as always, was a treat, and something we really looked forward to every morning. And wine and cheese on Saturday evenings is a great time to meet your fellow vacationers! I loved sitting on the back porch, looking out on the water and knitting to my heart's content.
We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: The Captain's Room is fantastic for the view of the water! It is definitely quiet, and the sun i...

Green Features: I completely appreciate that the Inn is eco-friendly. Maybe it is just me, but things seem cleaner, fresher, and more comfortable. I just wish my own family could follow the Inn's example!
