Our trip to the Neptune Festival and Craft Fair was great fun, and the experience was much enhanced by the relaxing atmosphere to "come-home to" after our day on the beach front. The room was beautiful, and quiet. Our favorite spot was the wrap around porch. We drank our coffee out there in the morning--Rich made sure we had plenty! And those cookies! wow. Loved those. Both Rich and Sharon are gracious hosts with a warm welcome and friendly conversation. The breakfasts were fun too, with creative recipes and delicious flavor. Thanks to you both for a great get-away!

My husband.and I are frequent travelers to Virginia Beach since we have a son stationed at NAS Oceana. The Barclay Bed and Breakfast has become our home away from home! We have logged 3 visits this summer and each was as perfect as the last. Sharon and Rich are so very warm and welcoming. The Barclay is always immaculate and charming. Every detail has been attended to- coffee and OJ are waiting for guests who rise early. I love to take mine to the wrap around porch in the morning. Rich prepares decadent Sunday brunch-worthy breakfasts no matter what day of the week it is. The rooms are so tastefully decorated and comfortable. It's fun to discover all of the touches that have been provided for your comfort- nothing has been missed! Some of my favorites are the comfortable jetted tubs, the wonderful towels and sheets, the wonderful smelling soaps, the nightlights, the cookies that are baked fresh daily for those with a sweet tooth (me!), the beach towels and chairs and bikes that are available for the guests. The Barclay is located only 3 or 4 blocks from oceanfront with many fun and unique restaurants within walking distance. Nice to have all of this available without paying the hefty oceanfront prices. Once you stay here, you will want return time and again.

Sharon and Rich are the sweetest hosts and do a fantastic job running this B&B. They're friendly and approachable, and always have thoughtful recommendations. The B&B was beautifully decorated with a clean and updated beach-theme, but with a nod to the traditional history of the house. The location is ideal, since it is just off the beach and there are plenty of great food options on and off the boardwalk. The breakfast was AMAZING....they were very considerate of everybody's different tastes and made sure to accommodate any allergies or requests. Additionally, Sharon and Rich were flexible in allowing us to leave our bags with them after checkout, and clean up after we had returned from our final day in VA Beach. Overall it was a great long weekend experience and we definitely intend to stay again if we're down in the area!

Sharon and Rich are the perfect hosts! They are accessible to answer questions and make recommendations. Such a wonderful and clean B&B. It is decorated beautifully and simple-just as a beach getaway should be. The food was wonderful. Ask for the baked grapefruit!! Extras are available to make your beach get away fun including chairs, umbrellas, bikes and helmets. Massages are available upon request.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor in one of the suites and it was absolutely wonderful however, I don'...
