My wife and I just spent the weekend there and had a great time. The Inn's owners Greg and Lori could not have been more gracious and they have thoughtfully outfitted the inn with most anything one would need to relax and enjoy the property....kayaks, canoes, bocce, bicycles, a fire-pit ( s'more supplies on hand), and a refreshing pool. A...

Stayed for two nights for our 20th anniversary. Beautiful property on Tabbs Creek. Did a kayak trip and relaxed by the pool. Fire pit with smores. Chesapeake suite was very nice - huge comfortable bed with the softest linens. Breakfast was amazing. Greg and Lori put out a great spread of eggs, pancakes, french toast, berries, fruit, potatoes, sausage -...

We just completed a four day stay at the Inn at Tabbs Creek and we couldn't have been more pleased. It is a picturesque property right on the water with sunsets that you only see in travel magazines. Lori and Greg are exceptional hosts who can't seem to do enough for you. If you are looking for a place to...

We recently had the pleasure of staying at the Inn at Tabbs Creek, and like so many others, can say nothing but good about the hosts, setting, food and facilities. What we wanted to add in particular was the advantageous position of the inn for several of the Virginia Birding and Wildlife trails (Mathews and Gloucester loops, among others). Port...

My husband and I just returned from a weekend getaway to the Inn at Tabbs Creek. This is such a peaceful, quiet, and relaxing B and B. I simply have nothing negative to say.

We have been returning to the Inn at least annually since Lori and Greg began hosting there. A warm and welcoming couple who make each guest feel at home. The setting is gorgeous, with water views from inside or out. The fabulous breakfasts alone are worth the stay; Greg is a most creative and most considerate chef, catering to every...

The Inn was gorgeous, and the location is amazing! We enjoyed staying in the Captain's Room, with a wonderful view of the water. Breakfasts were delicious, and the Saturday wine and cheese was such a nice extra touch. The innkeepers are friendly, and they made us feel right at home. We tried SUP for the first time, roasted marshmallows over...

Our friends came down from New Hampshire specifically to check out this Inn after hearing us talk about it so much. It's our favorite B&B! The Inn is a beautifully decorated old farmhouse at the end of a tree-lined drive-very private. All the rooms are so inviting and warm. Everything you could possibly want in a cozy or romantic Inn...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our waterfront retreat is located on a secluded creek of the Chesapeake Bay in charming Mathews County, Va. With over 800 ft. of waterfront and 8 acres of wooded and open space, this Virginia Bed and Breakfast is the perfect place to get away from it all and totally relax. The main Inn is an 1880's newly renovated farmhouse with a separate cottage housing the luxury suites just across the garden and pool. An eco-friendly and certified Virginia Green lodging establishment, The Inn at Tabbs Creek is just the place if you appreciate the natural splendor of the outdoors and want the luxury and comfort of a casual B&B. Embark on a kayak or stand up paddleboard adventure, spend the day cycling the endless level Mathews country roads, or charter a sunset cruise with fresh oysters or fishing charter that leaves straight from our private dock. You can also just relax and recharge your romance with a picnic on a nearby beach, stargazing around the firepit, and watching the sunset in our chlorine free pool with a glass of Virginia Wine. *Winner of 2012 "Green Facility of the Year" from Virginia Tourism Corporation and TripAdvisor's "Certificate of Excellence" and "Green Leader" award, we were also voted "Most Welcoming Bed and Breakfast" in Eastern Virginia by Virginia Living Magazine this year. ... more   less
