My husband & I recently stayed for a short, last minute weekend visit. What a relaxing stay at this sweet inn. The inn may be hard to find at first, but it sure makes up for its wonderful view along the water. We stayed in the West Billups room on the second floor of the main house. It has a...

Stayed here for the third time in March 2017, on a short respite while visiting family in Richmond. This is the perfect place to go to power down for a few days and nights. We watched movies and played games and read books from the library. The breakfasts were (as always) delicious -- and since we were the only ones...

We returned to the Inn at Tabbs Creek for the 4th time and it continues to be the perfect B&B. The scenery is wonderful and the breakfasts are fantastic. The best part is Lori, Greg, and David who continue to be warm and welcoming hosts. Can' wait to go back!

I was traveling for business and stayed at the Inn at Tabbs Creek. I upgraded to the Bayside suite and it was totally worth it. Beautifully decorated. Large TV. Living area. Full kitchen with Keurig coffee. Refrigerator large enough for bottles, and a freezer with ice! The bed was absolutely gorgeous that I had to take a photo. There was...

Another perfect stay. The Inn is comfortable in every way – the hosts, the beds, and the food. We travel often, but have never stayed in the same place twice, except Tabbs Creek, where this was our fifth time, all at different seasons. This was our first winter visit, and the unusually splendid weather allowed us to hike and bike...

This is our 2nd trip here. It is a pleasant 2 and a half hour drive from Charlottesville. We upgraded to the Chesapeake Suite. I loved having a separate living area since I am an early riser. The decorations are tasteful. The bed was beautiful. Nice views out back of the creek. The breakfasts are fabulous and Dave, Greg &...

My husband and I recently moved to Charlottesville, and I was looking for a place for his birthday weekend where we could use our 13 foot ocean kayaks. I stumbled across this B&B right on the Chesapeake. Driving into the tiny town of Mathews, my husband was tired, and I must admit we were skeptical as to whether we had...

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
