Readers know me. I rarely (once in a blue moon) give a "5" rating. This time, it's a "10"! This place is magical. David & Barbara are two of the most amazing "wizards" or some might even say "Angels". Their aura infuses the property (inside and out) with a light so warm yet bright it feeds not only the palette... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a couple of days as a "vacation within a vacation" during a reunion trip. We had read the reviews about the delicious breakfasts and warm hospitality, and we found this to be completely true.

My husband and I had a fantastic weekend staying at the Channel Bass Inn, our first trip to Chincoteague. Barbara and David are such kind hosts - we enjoyed getting to know them. Their breakfasts were delicious and Barbara's multi-course English tea is not to be missed! We also appreciated their room of beach supplies (umbrellas, chairs, etc.), super helpful... More

My wife and I visited Chincoteague for my birthday for a 3-day weekend. The weather turned out to be cold and windy, and if we had stayed anywhere else we would have left early and gone home. But we had such a wonderful time with the innkeepers and their friends. Barbara and David are the loveliest people you would ever... More

We visited Channel Bass Inn and Chincoteague Island for my boyfriend's 39th birthday over 4th of July weekend. We wanted something quiet and relaxing, as opposed to Ocean City or the like. Barbara and David, the innkeepers, are amazing, and we had an excellent stay. We stayed in the Topcliffe Room on the 3rd floor, and it is was gorgeous... More

My wife and I originally booked a week but ended up staying an extra two days, as we didn't want to leave!

From the moment we made our reservation, my husband and I felt welcomed by InnKeepers Barbara and David. We were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary and upon hearing that, Barbara suggested a restaurant and made reservations for us. Upon arrival, I was welcomed with a warm hug from Barbara.

We were so lucky to find this B&B. Delightful. A gorgeous house with very nice rooms. The grounds around are also worth strolling in. A family of ducks were having a great time in one of the small ponds. The hosts, David and Barbara, get high notes since they were so kind and nice to us and all the other... More
