Victoria runs a great B&B. The rooms are charming and the beds comfortable. The living room is spacious and welcoming. It feels like home. Coffee, tea, soft drinks and bottled water always are available. A glass of wine and cheese at 5 pm are welcome. The breakfast is the second B of course, and it will not disappoint you. Freshly...

We recently spent 3 nights at the Tidewater Inn, it was our first B&B stay. Although we do not have any other experiences for comparison, we will not be staying anywhere else , the Tidewater Inn is it for us ! Our hostess Victoria has definitely found her calling in life. She is gracious, caring and a good listener. Not...

My partner Eric and I stayed at the Tidewater Inn for 2 days in October. We choose it based on the reviews here and we were NOT disappointed. Victoria is a warm and welcoming host, and a great cook.

Pros: The food was excellent and the gluten free breakfasts were the best I have ever eaten. The coffee was amazing. The bed was very comfortable and the rooms were clean except for the carpet stains. The grounds were beautiful. Cons: The Inn needs routine maintenance as the orange carpet is old, stained, and unappealing. The carpet did not even...

Tidewater Inn is a low-key, homelike, no-pressure BnB, ideally located for shoreline attractions, though not on the shore itself. Breakfasts are bounteous (cereal, fruit, a fresh-baked offering, and a savory or sweet main course) and there's a Keurig and muffins for early risers. Beach passes are provided, a big plus, and Victoria knows the area very well. Like Thomas A...

Tidewater Inn was nice. As others have said, a BnB can feel like "your grandma's house but your grandma isn't home". But Tidewater didn't strike me like that. The owner (Victoria) was nice and also unobtrusive. She will make you a breakfast you may or may not like (spinach quiche looking dish with sausage and home fries) but under no...

We just came home after spending 4 nights at the Tidewater Inn. We stayed in the Madison Room which is large, airy and very comfortable.
