INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 February 2017

We have stayed in many B&B's, and this is definitely the best of them all! Sharon's taste with the decor is perfect, with beachy colors, driftwood, and ocean-themed art. We rented all three upstairs rooms for our party of 5, and it was very quiet, comfortable, and meticulously clean. We loved the upstairs wrap-around porch, with rocking chairs, and a...

Barclay Cottage is a lovely seashore cottage with fantastic breakfasts and warm hosts. The Lighthouse Room, our favorite, is decorated in nautical tones and full of lighthouse memorabilia, our favorite. This is our best stop on our winter drive to Florida and this is our third year visiting at the beginning and end of our trip. The living room common...

Down for a weekend getaway, visiting Virginia Beach for the first time. Lovely place to stay, a few blocks from the beach. Easy walk down to the boardwalk or one can rent their bikes to cycle around the community and onto the boardwalk. Great accommodations with comfortable rooms....and really liked the personalized 'sea scroll'---nice touch to remind us of being...

The services, presentation, facilities, and atmosphere of this establishment were amazing. We bought a 2 night stay with Romance package. The owners are as kind, courteous, and entirely accommodating. First off, the initial greeting and check in started with a brief tour because we had to check in between wedding and reception. There was a late check in, but we...

I have to give the lions share of credit for presentation and décor to Sharon and love when guests mention it in their reviews. Being able to help accommodate special requests gives us an even deeper feeling of fulfillment that our guests are enjoying themselves. Thanks for the review and yes if you need a DD that's fun for me...

When our friends return to see us it is the best compliment we could ask for. To take time to let people know truly touches both Sharon and myself. Heartfelt thanks as we look forward to Shamrock 2017! Rich and Sharon.

My husband surprised me by booking a room for two nights at the Barclay Cottage B&B, and including a wine and cheese tray, a couples massage, and a dinner at a local restaurant. We were warmly greeted by Rich, our innkeeper, who explained about the keys, refrigerator, breakfast time, etc. Then we changed into our complimentary robes, walked down the...

Rich and Sharon are amazing! We stayed in the Cape Henry room, the bedding is amazing! The breakfasts above and beyond anything we could have dreamed up. Only 2 blocked for the beach, everything we needed to spend a day on the beach provided. First class all the way. We will be back time and time again.
