We have traveled down Rt. 13 in Virginia from Pa. on the way to my daughter's many times and have always wondered what lay off the main path. Recently we had an opportunity to see and stayed for a night at The Inn at Onancock. The sleepy little town was a delight and our visit to the inn was refreshing. We were greeted at the door with a chalkboard that had our name to welcomed us. Lisa showed us to our room and allowed us to check all the others as we were the fist to arrive. Each is decorated so interestingly to a theme of places they have stayed right down to the details of the doorknockers. We stayed in the Maine room, which encompassed the whole third floor under the eaves. The bathroom was absolutely luxurious with a jetted tub, tiled floor and walls, plenty of plush towels, a towel warmer and stocked with amenities. The kingsize bed was quite comfy, piled high with a featherbed topper and lots of comforters. This inn enjoys a "wine down" hour, tho we did not partake of that. We did however eat dinner at a quaint place on the wharf called Mallard's, that I'd recommend to everyone. Lisa's breakfast was a feast of fruit, a cheese, egg and ham strada baked inside a croissant and then there was dessert as well! It's a quiet getaway where you are pampered. So don't be afraid to take a trip off the main road, you'll be surprised.
