Our hosts were wonderful. they respect privacy, but are genuinly nice people who will spend time having a plesant conversation also. The place is quiet, hidden with a private beach. There are rooms that look out over the beach, or a side room that looks out over woods. Our room was the view of the woods and we loved it. Private bathroom and clean and comfortable bedroom. The place is cozy and spacious. we had a wonderful time. we love to travel to different places, but we're really tempted to make this a yearly visit. we were surrounded by nature, but just a 30 minute car ride away from Virginia beach. Breakfast both days was fun. it was cool to sit with folks for an hour and hear about their lives. then they go their way and we'd go ours.
I hope this is helpful.
The Bay Haven Inn is truly a gem. The property is well located for the local shops, restaurants and beach which are all within a short stroll. The owners are extremely friendly and very helpful and the breakfasts served are most enjoyable. The surrounding area is very flat which helped when we rented some bikes to tour the small town. The property built in the early 1900's is immaculately set out with period furniture and matching furnishings bolstering the feeling of real quality and comfort. There is ample room throughout and having an 'open pantry' with access to snacks and drinks is very convenient.
Dorothy was so kind to me when I unknowingly let the shower leak onto the floor. She let me know so gently, and without blame, that the downstairs rooms had noticed a leak.... she let me know that she cleaned it up the next morning and not to worry. I felt terrible and she gave me a hug and said not to worry. I know that had to be a challenge and possibly costly, to clean up. If you stay in the Attic room, make sure you keep the shower curtain inside the bathtub. The staff (Michelle) was also wonderful and helpful at breakfast!
