How’d you like to live in a bed and breakfast that made it to the list of “Top 10 B&Bs in the US”? Welcome to the Inn at Tabbs Creek in Port Haywood, a coastal hamlet two hours north of Virginia Beach. The laidback inn lies in a secluded creek off the Chesapeake Bay and is famous for its locally roasted coffee and gourmet breakfasts. Stay in the cosy Tabbs Creek Room, which is separated from the main inn by gardens and a pool, quite an uncommon feature for a bed and breakfast. Apart from a private ensuite bathroom, it also has all elements for a comfortable stay, including a fridge, a coffee maker, a flat-screen TV and a DVD player.

In the heart of Elizabeth City, this one-of-a-kind homestay is impressive and intriguing in equal measure. Citing Philemon 7 scriptures of the New Testament as foundations, this home is hospitality at its very best. The host not only serves delicious breakfast but also extends open invitations for dinner with the family. Besides, the most striking feature of the house is the enclosed front porch that has cushioned wicker chairs. It makes for a great place to enjoy a cuppa in the evenings. Stay in the comfy Red Room, which is as the name says - red in colour-from the drapes to the comforters. The highlight of the room is the antique iron bed, which belonged to the host’s grandfather.

45 minutes west of Virginia Beach lies the great outdoors that is Suffolk. In downtown Suffolk, late-19th-century-built The Pinner House is the perfect base to explore this fascinating region. An Italian-style fountain is the heart of this bed and breakfast, where the hosts serve you breakfast in an alfresco setting. An expansive grape gazebo is the property’s most Instagrammable spot. The sunroom with French doors looks onto the garden, and the bedrooms are equally captivating. Soft beds, smart TVs, and plush en-suite bathrooms make them extremely comfortable to stay at.

Stay at the historic, 11-room Culpepper Inn in the heart of Elizabeth City. It is a great base for exploring Virginia Beach, as well as the historic district of Elizabeth City and its waterfront, parks, and museums. What’s excellent about this bed and breakfast is that a hearty self-serving continental breakfast is included in the price. Breakfast is served in the enchanting Tavern Room, which overlooks the manicured landscaped gardens. The indoor fireplace is perfect for cosying up during cold winter evenings. The icing on the cake is the heavenly pool, which is a rare feature in a bed and breakfast.

Culture buffs exploring Virginia Beach and the region will love staying at this fabulous colonial two-story home in the heart of Eastville, a historic town in Cape Charles just north of Virginia Beach. A polished red-brick facade sets the tone of this 1937-built home, where the pool and the patio were added later on. The beautiful blue-and-white benches on the patio are perfect to dig into a homemade breakfast or simply admire the lush surroundings. You will love the outdoors. The town has tons of celebrated structures, including a courthouse with the oldest continuous court records in the country!

Located a street away from the oceanfront area is this charming and spacious beach cottage. The place is larger than what your idea of a traditional bed and breakfast is and yet it retains the homespun factor. With just eight rooms, you can be assured of personalized attention that these accommodations are so famous for. Each room has an ensuite bathroom, but the highlight here is the third-floor spa, which is unheard of in a bed and breakfast. It even has an outdoor spa pool for you to relax after a long day of exploration. Wrapping up a stunning offering are the gardens, porches, and a cascading waterfall.

The flourish of historic inns is a testament to Elizabeth City’s rich cultural history. Stay at what is the oldest house in the city, the iconic Grice-Fearing House Bed and Breakfast which is even listed on the National Register of Historic Places! It is also the only B&B in the city that offers actual suites with separate sitting areas and even hot tubs in the ensuite bathrooms. Going further, the place boasts an indoor fireplace for chilly North Carolinian evenings as well as a cable TV. If you want to catch up with work, there’s even a business centre on-site. Last but not least, the accommodation is within stone’s throw from the town’s historic centre, as well as gorgeous sights and the beachfront.

Step back in time at this luxurious house in downtown Suffolk, which looks like a 19th-century Italian mansion in the 21st century. If you’re a family or group of four, then the Dogwood Suite at The Pinner House with two queen beds in two bedrooms suits you perfectly. The shared bathroom even has a whirlpool tub perfect for unwinding, while the private porch is a delightful added perk. Dine on a hearty breakfast next to the majestic Italian-style fountain or take pictures by the grape gazebo. Afternoons are great to relax in the sunroom that has French doors overlooking the formal gardens.
