I was recently a guest of Marie Louise and Steve LaFond at the Barclay Cottage in VA Beach. My third stay there felt like I was returning home. It's hard to say whether the impeccable accommodations and amenities (nothing is forgotten), the personal service (Marie Louise hemmed by pants) or the awesome breakfast make this my only choice in VA...

A most wondeful place to stay in Virginia Beach is Barclay Cottage...you will not find more charm than at Barclay. Steve and Marie-Louise are amazing hosts that make your stay in Virgina Beach nothing but delightful. An easy two block walk to the beach, clean rooms, and a breakfast that's absolutely delicious!!!!!! Try it...you will love it!!!!!

My wife and I are innkeepers in Cape May, NJ and are always looking for nice B&B's when we travel. Trip Advisor has been quite helpful in picking them out. We were enroute to Wilmington, NC and stopped over in Virginia Beach for one night on the way. I have to say we were quite impressed with Marie Louise and...

Thank you for complimenting us. As we said when you were here, it felt like we have known you longer than just the time you visited with us. We are looking forward to staying with you at one of your two inns in Cape May. We looked up your sites and you sure do have beautiful places.

The LaFond's could be easily described as perfect Innkeepers. From a warm welcome to perfect service during the stay and profound tips for our trip, their hospitality was outstanding. Not to mention the house with its unique charme in a vibrant Virginia Beach. Stephen even raised the flag of our home country at Barclay during our stay. One unique experience,...

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend at this hidden gem in Virginia Beach. The Cottage is located close to the Oceanfront and restaurants. The service was spectacular and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. The rooms were clean and exuded a quiet charm. The Inn Keepers saw to every detail and they quickly became close friends you could...

Barclay Cottage is beautiful. Every time we visit we enjoy a breakfast beyond compare, and fabulous hospitality to boot. I sleep better there than in my own bed. Don's miss out on the best getaway Virginia Beach has to offer.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Barclay Cottage and had a fantastic time. Steve and Marie-Louise were charming innkeepers and their dinner recommendation was spot-on. Cookies, coffee, and tea in the afternoon were a charming (and welcome!) touch. The beds are sumptuous and comfortable - we slept like rocks! It was hard to leave the comfort of such...

We stayed for one night, but I wish it had been one week or one month. Barclay Cottage is beautiful! The Innkeepers take care of you as if you are family, but the cooking is much better than momma's. The beds were VERY comfortable and so was the overall feel of the Inn. It is very clean, quiet and would...

My wife and I stayed two nights at this lovely B&B in Virginia Beach. The inn has an interesting history as an old school and is very tastefully decorated with antiques and pictures of the old school and Miss Barclay herself. It is nicely located close to the beach and restaurants but just far enough off the beaten track to...

We stayed at Barclay Cottage for one of their Whale Watching tour packages.
