We received a winter special stay for Christmas last year and booked an additional night in the Captain's Room for a total of a 3 night stay. When we arrived, it was already dark and I can see how people have trouble finding the road to turn on off the main road. We didn't do much exploring until the next day but were able to make ourselves at home as soon as we arrived! We were greeted by one of the innkeeper's brothers and were given a short tour and taken to our room. Our room was just fabulous! Sunny, bright, and facing the water! The bed was super comfy and the bathroom was quite beautiful with mosaic tiling.
We enjoyed all of the personal and homey touches the Inn at Tabbs Creek provides thanks to Lore and Greg. We loved having the common living room and socializing with other guests, watching movies on the leather couches, and browsing the inn's mini-library. The breakfasts were INCREDIBLE! We never left the dining table hungry! They were quite unique breakfasts with traditional touches. We also enjoyed the Saturday night happy hour getting to know the other guests and the innkeepers while enjoys wine and appetizers! The fire pit was well-utilized since our stay was in March. We used some of the provided smore fixings and got hot dogs to make over the fire!
While this is a water town, it is great to visit in the winter too! There is plenty to do on site at the inn! You really don't have to provide about a thing once you arrive! Lori and Greg have everything covered! We are already planning another visit in the coming months for some R&R!
