We recently stayed at the Inn at Tabbs Creek for a weekend during the Urbanna Oyster Festival. The owners went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable and memorable. The Saturday night oyster roast and BBQ dinner is a wonderful time to chat with other guests and learn some history about the area. We also enjoyed the firepit every...

We have been here 5 times. Always a peaceful stay, relaxing setting from the chairs on the dock to the front porch swing to a lazy ride in the canoe. Breakfast is always stunning and meeting new friends has always been a highlight.

We originally were looking at the White Dog Bistro as a dinner location and the owners of that recommended the Inn at Tabbs Creek. We could not be happier with their recommendation. If you're looking for quiet, relaxing, water (without the wind & surf), and exceptional service this is the place. We enjoyed being able to converse with the other...

Very peaceful and tranquil, perfect getaway for the weekend. Hosts were very accommodating, sunset cruise was a great way to learn more about the local oysters. Stick to the Southwinds cafe for dinner. Avoid the mexican restaurant. We will definitely consider coming back next year!!

Our family rented the Inn for our parents' 60th wedding anniversary. The Inn went out of their way to accommodate, from 5 star breakfasts to a remarkable dinner feast and party. The facilities accommodated all our needs, from the charming, quaint guest house to first floor cottages for older relatives. The Inn also accommodated great grandchildren and made a special...

Our visit was over Labor Day weekend. My husband and I are newbies to the whole B&B experience. We were just a little nervous and really didn't know what to expect.

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
