For a Vacation Experience to Remember . . .
Bay View Waterfront Bed and Breakfast is on a hill overlooking Occohannock Creek with an expansive view to the Chesapeake Bay and a dock to deep water.
Guests can enjoy a superb view, reading, fishing, crabbing, biking, swimming in the pool or the creek and a small beach. Our 140 acres offers woods, farmland, and a creek shore to hike and explore, or space to just relax, unwind and enjoy being you.
We know you will fall in love with out large historic and gracious home. The old part of the house is one room deep, which takes advantage of summer breezes and wonderful views of Occohannock Creek, Chesapeake Bay, and farmland from every room.
Built in the ‘big house, little house’ style unique to the Eastern Shore the three original sections date from about 1800, and feature heart pine floors, birds-eye-maple balusters, high ceilings and four working fireplaces. Additions in 1940, 1961, and 1972 continued the Eastern Shore style architecture until the house stretches over one hundred feet and has five roof levels.
A full breakfast is included. Please note, there is no cell reception in the house. WIFI is available in the dining room, the library and on the screened porch.
Bay View was a featured Rural Retreat in Rural Living Magazine, a highlighted B & B accessible by water in Chesapeake Bay Magazine, and the subject of Home Suite Home Away from Home in the Norfolk Virginian Pilot.
