The evening before a funeral in Colonial Beach, we saw the snow forecast. We were not crazy about the conventional hotel choices in the immediate area, but staying out of town meant more driving in the snow after accumulation, so at 9:30 pm we turned to TripAdvisor and Shirley, the inn keeper here at Monroe B&B. She responded promptly and...

We enjoyed our stay. The room was small but clean and comfortable. The Innkeeper was very nice and accommodating. We were late arrivals and she make it work for us, others I spoke with could not. The home was nicely decorated with local art, which we found interesting. We would stay there again.

We stayed here overnight while boating on the Potomac. Shirley was a great host. We were impressed that she is an artist and she has all types of art - different media around the very large house. Colonial Beach is a pretty small, but nice town. We rented a golf cart and jaunted around town.

Monroe Bay Inn is a great place to stay. The innkeeper, Shirley, is full of information and makes great breakfasts! Our room and the entire Inn is spotless. Such beautiful art (some of it is Shirley's!). The beds and pillows were comfy. Nice fluffy towels and plenty of water pressure. There is a small fridge in the upstairs sitting area...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and an excellent one at that. I enjoyed talking to you, especially about Colonial Beach, and hope to see you again, either here or at your place. My handyman is on his way to "fix" room 1. I appreciate the feedback.

I believe we had room #1 with a king size bed/bath. Clean, comfortable, and relaxing. A lot of terrific local art work displayed throughout the home. Shirley made us feel right at home. We were the only guests for the 3 nights so it was probably quieter than usual. We stayed here soon after the labor day weekend so the...

Shirley is such a joy and a great host. Shirley made our stay there beautiful and pleasant, the atmosphere is so open and fresh. Exhilarating very therapeutic.

It's a shame that this B&B isn't on the waterfront, but it's only a short walk to the water, and the B&B is comfortable, clean, and spacious. The bed was good, the shower worked fine, and Shirley makes a home made breakfast. There are no tea and coffee making facilities in the bedroom, and although there's a little guest sitting...
