My wife and I just spent three nights at "The Inn". Greg and Lori and Lori's brother David, made our visit absolutely "the best"! Breakfast was letter perfect. They were decorating with all natural locally available materials, and what a great job they were doing. Wish we could spend Christmas at "The Inn at Tabbs Creek"!!!! Greg and Lori are...

My wife and I needed to unplug and forget everything for a few days -- found this Inn via a web search and are we ever glad we did. Greg and Lori are doing it right -- the most important aspect of a B&B is to feel immediately comfortable, and they have mastered the art. The property is beautiful, the...

This was our third visit to the Inn at Tabbs Creek and our first visit during the fall. We love coming here to rest and relax. Greg and Lori do an amazing job!

Greg and Lori made us feel immediately at home in this lovely bed and breakfast inn, which sits at the end of a lane on a finger of the Chesapeake Bay. Any question was answered, anything you needed was at hand. Sit on the dock overlooking the water with a glass of local wine, oar make a fire in the...

The quiet, the dock, the water view...excellent hosts...comfortable rooms. That's part of why we hope to come back again. We've stayed in some Virginia B & B's that were stuffy, over-priced or w/ inconsiderate, noisy houseguests. Not The Inn at Tabbs Creek! Great place to get away from urban day-to-day. Bring a book but their Library is nice, too. We...

From one year to this, the experience at the Inn has only gotten better! This year we were in the Captain's Room, which boasts of a great view of the water. I really liked this room (I really liked our room last year too!), and loved that everything was so comfortable. The bed was fantastic for sleeping, and the decor...

There is a fine line between being overbearing to your customers and being neglectful of your customers, the keepers of The Inn at Tabbs Creek understand and respect this. The owners, Greg and Lori were very friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived, we received a tour of the area and were told to make ourselves at home. They...

We had a perfect weekend getaway at the Inn at Tabbs Creek. The innkeepers were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay.

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
