If you could invent some cousins, aunt & uncle, or grandparents, (depending on how old you are!!) who are fun, great cooks, have so much cool stuff in the house you never get tired of looking, lend you bikes & beach chairs & towels to take to the beach, put fresh homemade cookies and coffee out for whenever, you would...

Marie-Louise & Steve were wonderful hosts. We missed our flight from home (Chicago) to Norfolk, which made for a very late arrival to Barlcay. Marie-Louise was kind enough to wait up for us with food and beverages sitting in the front-room upon our arrival. I must also note our fellow guests were a delight every morning during breakfast time (food... More

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Barclay Cottage. Neither of us had stayed at a bed and breakfast before; now we'll probably never stay in a chain hotel again! The inn was beautiful with many interesting antiques and books. Our room was wonderful. The bedding was great - the sheets felt like butter. The innkeepers are very sweet... More

My husband and I (and our daughter and son-in-law) had a relaxing five-night stay at the Barclay Cottage Bed & Breakfast in Virginia Beach. The innkeepers, Steve and Marie-Louise, were knowledgeable and informative hosts with a wonderful sense of humor. They rank "tops" in hospitality! The inn built in 1895 has an interesting history and is a few minutes' walk... More

I was recently a guest of Marie Louise and Steve LaFond at the Barclay Cottage in VA Beach. My third stay there felt like I was returning home.

A most wondeful place to stay in Virginia Beach is Barclay Cottage...you will not find more charm than at Barclay. Steve and Marie-Louise are amazing hosts that make your stay in Virgina Beach nothing but delightful. An easy two block walk to the beach, clean rooms, and a breakfast that's absolutely delicious!!!!!! Try it...you will love it!!!!!
