Circa 1882. Adorning the historic waterfront community, this recently renovated Colonial home built in 1882, has since become the oldest operating inn on the state's Eastern Shore. An eclectic blend of antiques and collectibles accents the casually elegant décor of this smoke-free inn. Relax on a comfortable sofa in the living room. Enjoy the inviting enclosed porch with year-round heating and cooling as well as candles that enhance the evening ambiance. Stay in a suite that features a private outside entrance and sitting area. A brick walkway leads to the gazebo with a nearby fountain and two acres of park-like grounds to explore. Breakfast is always a delicious repast served family-style at the huge dining table. Bask on the sun deck or sit on a front lawn chair.

What a pleasant surprise!

My husband and I were on a trip along the East coast, driving from Florida back to our home in New Jersey. That particular day turned out very different from what we had planned. We had planned to cross over from Cedar Island to Ocaracoke on the Outerbanks and then drive up north along the Outerbanks. After getting up at 5am to catch the ferry to the Outerbanks and a 2.5hrs ferry ride, we discovered that Hwy 12 on the Outerbanks was under construction and we could not proceed. Very disappointed, we turned around and had to take the ferry back again to the mainland. Since this was also one of the last days of our vacation, we decided to drive as far north as we get, look for a place to sleep and continue our drive home the next day. We had expected nothing from this day and night, but what a gem we found! When we stopped in Onancock, we were pleasantly surprised to find such a cute town. Upon looking around, we were recommended several inns and hotels and tried our luck with the Colonial Manor Inn. When we entered the building, we immediately noticed what great care and pride the innkeepers Linda and Carroll took with this beautiful old house. Rich in details and history, every step revealed another insight into the innkeepers' or the house's past. That night we sunk into the wonderfully comfy four-post bed and slept as good as we hadn't in a long while. The morning greeted us with a nice view and sunrise and after a quick hot shower, we headed downstairs to the dining room, wonderful smells of freshly baked banana bread guiding us. Linda greeted us and served the most wonderful breakfast, including self-made strawberry butter, fresh biscuits, fresh fruit, an omelette from their own chicken and so much more. That disappointing day had turned into a wonderful day and we thank Linda and Caroll of making this happen. A great last night of our trip! We would come back anytime!

An Anniversary to Remember

The wife and I pick odd years in celebrating big events. This year was our 40th Anniversary so we decided to do a local celebration this year and to take a cruise or trip for our 41st. We (at least me) decided to stay within a 100 miles of home for this occasion. Before we had left home I had notified our Innkeeper (Linda)without my wife's knowledge that this was going to be a special deal for us and would she be able to order flowers and maybe a massage for two? Linda had just purchased the Inn and was honest in telling me, "I'm not sure but I will try!" She succeeded in every try. The flowers and the massuese arrived on our anniversary date and I as the "sneaky" hubby scored lots of points for this orchestration. When I saw my wife's face beam as she got her beautiful floral arrangement and then was treated to a full body massage. I also got a massage. Talk about stress relief? Linda and her Mom, Carroll are very affable and made us feel like we were at home in their home. Meeting some very nice folks at the massive breakfast table,and being treated warmly by our hosts was really nice. Linda's Mom, besides being a great cook is also a professional Artist and has gallery class paintings decorating the walls of the Inn. There are numerous first class restaurants and an Irish Pub within walking distance. All in all our four day stay was a winner. Would we go again? Definitely!
