This was our third time to the Inn at Tabb's Creek. As usual, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food at breakfast rivals any fancy restaurant we have ever been to. Many of the ingredients are fresh from their garden. The rooms are beautiful and clean. The dock is lovely. We love to walk out and sit on the dock and...

Spent two enjoyable nights at The Inn at Tabbs Creek. It does have a wonderful location with a beautiful view of an inlet. Sitting at the end of the dock viewing great sunsets is a treat. The well-decorated room, actually a suite, in a separate building was very spacious and comfortable. The very clean small pool was refreshing and nice...

My husband and I stayed here last year for our anniversary getaway. We only stayed for two nights, but I wish we could have stayed longer! The inn is beautiful and location secluded and quiet - perfect for a relaxing, romantic getaway weekend! The inn keepers, Lori and Greg, are extremely nice and make delicious breakfasts. We were lucky that...

Hello, and so nice of you to write a review a year later! That is so cool, and means a lot to us that you are still thinking about your time here. Thanks also for sharing the pictures, but what is so crazy for us to see is how much we have changed in a year...the room you stayed in,...

Not much to add to the other comments. Greg and Lori have thought of everything, from games to happy hour wine and cheese to a fully stocked and clean pool. I found myself saying all the time "Wow, they really have thought of everything". Do take the river cruise with Trey. I had never schudked an oyster before, and I...

My wife and I just spent one of the most relaxing long weekends ever. The Inn at Tabbs Creek is beautiful and wandering around Matthews County was great fun.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being "brilliant!"), Greg and Lori get a 15. We've stayed at many Bed & Breakfast Inns, and the Inn at Tabbs Creek is by far the most relaxing, has the best food, and is the most accommodating we've ever experienced. The garden is not only beautiful, it has a pretty incredible story...

For those who haven't been there, historic, water-surrounded, rather remote and fully authentic Mathews County is a treasure! Surrounded by the Chesapeake Bay, Mobjack Bay, the Piankatank, East, and North Rivers, and including endless inlets, it has (I believe) the most shoreline of any county in the country. Off the path of any major roads, it is truly pristine and...

This is a lovely bed and breakfast. Greg and Lori are gracious and flexible hosts and have helpful tips about what to do, where to eat, etc. The inn is well maintained, with nice common amenities. In good weather, relaxing by the pool can't be beat. Breakfast was wonderful.

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
