We’ve been very busy this past month. We had the mad dash to get the main house (Billups House) ready for the Tour de Chesapeake as we were booked solid and we have had many guests since then plus we are still working on getting the new kitchen up and running. WHEW!!

Yesterday we were proud to be a part of the Mathews County History House Tour sponsored by the Mathews Historic Society. Over 200 people entered through our front door into the main house.

The mirror on the wall to the left got lots of attention as did the desk built by Lori’s grandfather in 1913. Four more years and it is officially an antique! Well have pictures soon showing the renovations we did to the upstairs as well as some before shots for comparison.

One of the many things we love about our new inn is that it makes an ideal base for for a great vacation. A beautiful serene setting combined with easy drives to many wonderful locations. So here at the Inn At Tabbs Creek, we thought we would highlight some of the many historic sites and theme parks our guests may want to visit during their stay with us.

The Historic Triangle:

Colonial Williamsburg – Interact with people from the 18th century and see how they lived. The centerpiece of the Historic Triangle, Williamsburg is a must see! 

Jamestown – The first permanent English settlement. Experience the life of the first settlers and Virginia’s first capital.

Yorktown Battlefield – Come see where George Washington defeated the English army and forced Cornwallis to surrender, dealing English hopes of retaining the American Colonies a crippling blow.

Theme Parks:

Busch Gardens Williamsburg – With a European theme, Busch Gardens brings out the kid in all of us.

Water Country USA – Wet, Wild, FUN!

Hello! We are soon to be opening a bed and breakfast called The Inn at Tabb’s Creek, located in historic Mathews County Virginia (learn more about Mathews County here). We hope to be fully operational by the spring of 2009. Until then, we will be posting about the wonderful renovations we will be doing as well as highlighting some of the many sites to see and activities to do in and around Mathews.

Our B&B is located on beautiful, spacious waterfront property along Tabb’s Creek near the East River, which is an offshoot of the Chesapeake Bay. We offer access to kayaking, canoeing, fishing, sailing and birdwatching among many other activities. Conveniently located near historic Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown, the Inn at Tabb’s Creek is less than 3 hours from Washington DC and less than an hour and a half from both Richmond and Norfolk Va.
