My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend at this hidden gem in Virginia Beach. The Cottage is located close to the Oceanfront and restaurants. The service was spectacular and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. The rooms were clean and exuded a quiet charm. The Inn Keepers saw to every detail and they quickly became close friends you could... More

Barclay Cottage is beautiful. Every time we visit we enjoy a breakfast beyond compare, and fabulous hospitality to boot. I sleep better there than in my own bed. Don's miss out on the best getaway Virginia Beach has to offer.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Barclay Cottage and had a fantastic time. Steve and Marie-Louise were charming innkeepers and their dinner recommendation was spot-on. Cookies, coffee, and tea in the afternoon were a charming (and welcome!) touch. The beds are sumptuous and comfortable - we slept like rocks! It was hard to leave the comfort of such... More

We stayed for one night, but I wish it had been one week or one month. Barclay Cottage is beautiful! The Innkeepers take care of you as if you are family, but the cooking is much better than momma's. The beds were VERY comfortable and so was the overall feel of the Inn. It is very clean, quiet and would... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at this lovely B&B in Virginia Beach. The inn has an interesting history as an old school and is very tastefully decorated with antiques and pictures of the old school and Miss Barclay herself. It is nicely located close to the beach and restaurants but just far enough off the beaten track to... More

We stayed at Barclay Cottage for one of their Whale Watching tour packages. Though we didn't see any whales, that disappointment was completely overshadowed by the amenities and hospitality we received during our stay. This is the best B&B I have ever stayed at - they have thought of everything! The room we stayed in had a lovely, comfy bed;... More

I know for some when they look at the ratings for Barclay Cottage, they might wonder how they could get all 5's. That tends to lead some skeptics to doubt whether the ratings are real. Believe me, in this inn's case, they are real! There's a reason they're getting all 5's. The hospitality, the welcome atmosphere and the tremendous kindness... More

What a wonderful place to spend our anniversary! We drove down in a tropical storm and arrived to a wonderful warm, cozy home. Steve and Marie-Louise were wonderful and the breakfast outstanding. Our only regret is that we only booked one night. We will return!! Steve and Susan

We were both delighted to find what felt like a quaint country cottage so close to the sea in a large beach resort. Steve and Marie-Louise even took the trouble of hoisting the British "Union Jack" flag next to the Starts and Stripes to welcome us. The cottage was a delight with great attention to detail - chocolates in the... More
