We became one. For a day anyway. It was the annual Tour De Chesapeake here in Mathews County Va a couple of weeks ago. We were happy to host once again, our very first guests from two years ago plus a whole lot more as we became a stop along the way for many of the bike riders that come to our area.

It was sponsored by the Mathews Maritime Foundation (who owns and operates the Mathews Maritime Museum) and they brought refreshments that they gave out for free to all who bike riders who stopped at our Inn for a quick break. And there were a lot.

One of the reasons the Maritime foundation wanted to team up with us was to highlight their Heritage Trail Project that now includes the East River. Right off where we’re located. They handed out brochures and talked to all interested parties. All in all, it was a big success for both the foundation and us!

We recently celebrated our one year anniversary as a fully operational Inn. It’s been great fun and lots of work. Lori’s brother Dave is now living on the property and with his help, we now have time to revive this blog. Yea!

Ok, so last year our very first weekend open happened during Mathew’s counties Tour de Chesapeake and we had a full house. It was a great way to get the proverbial ball rolling and everyone had a great time. How do we know this? Because those very same guests made sure to book their rooms for a return visit on our one year anniversary. It felt like a visit from old friends but enough talking, it’s picture time!

The weather was perfect

Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil and yet we still had lots of fun!

Best way to get ready for a long day riding the next day? A big pizza dinner the night before of course!


Good times and we’ve saved a spot for you all next year 🙂
