I have nothing but good things to say about Cape Charles House and the owners, Bruce and Carol. The room was immaculate and charming. The food was excellent. The company was wonderful. Bruce and Carol are very knowledgeable about the area, and made great recommendations. We highly encourage you to stay here!

Wonderful beyond all expectations! The room we had was charming and full of unique and beautiful furnishings. We came by boat and when a pair of sunglasses were left they drove across town to get them back to us. You will not find a more gracious pair of hosts.

The Cape Charles Bed and Breakfast is a lovely old house in a peaceful neighborhood. Our room was large and tastefully decorated. The breakfasts were delicious, filling, and artfully plated. But even better were the owners, Bruce and Carol. They were very welcoming and always ready to answer our questions. They provided information about restaurants and local attractions every day....

Bruce and Carol, have been the most accommodating host I've ever met in all my years of traveling. Carol is an amazing cook and has made some chef worthy breakfasts. Because I'm in Cap Charles for work my schedule is pretty crazy and they have made me feel right at home every time I show up. This is the way...

Bruce and Carol are lovely hosts and perfect ambassadors for Virginia's eastern shore. We had a delightful stay! Rooms are nice, and the front porch is the perfect spot for morning coffee and afternoon wine. Breakfast was delicious (and they quietly and expertly accommodated the dietary restriction i had indicated many weeks earlier) with fresh fruit, delicious muffins, and yummy...

Carol and Bruce are the perfect hosts. They are friendly, charming and very knowledgable about the area and so willing to share. Our room was lovely. Both breakfasts were absolutely delicious and Carol was kind enough to share the recipe for the goat cheese grits and eggs. We have never felt more welcomed and we really loved the home made...

Our hosts were warm, welcoming, and helpful. They advised us of area attractions, restaurants, local wine tastings and festivals. Breakfast was delicious. We also took advantage of the 5 pm wine and cheese tray offering. Service was top notch. The only reason for the four star was the small bathroom, and a slightly too firm mattress - but that's simply...

We love being your safe harbor for your east coast visit since your plans had to be re-arranged due to the impending hurricane. How lucky were we! It was a pleasure to share some of the hidden treasures of Virginia's Eastern Shore! Trusting that your trip to Richmond was uneventful and that you enjoyed that great historic city too!

It had been 5 years since our last visit but Bruce and Carol made us feel like we were old friends. The Cape Charles House is oh so comfortable and we were able to relax in private but also enjoyed our conversations with the hosts. The multi course breakfasts kept us going until dinner!

Carol and Bruce could not have been more attentive and welcoming. I called last minute and was lucky to get the last room on a weekend. The B&B is spotless, the room was very comfortable (although it would have been nice to have amenities in the bathroom beyond a tiny bar of soap). The FULL breakfast was absolutely delicious. It...

It was lovely to have you as a guest and we are so glad we could accommodate you at the last minute on a busy weekend.
