Stay Cool at a Virginia Waterfront B&B

Friday, July 12th, 2013

There’s no doubt that summer in Virginia is hot and humid, which is why so many individuals gravitate towards water activities to escape the oppressive heat. Numerous InnVirginia members happen to be waterfront B&Bs, so not only can you enjoy a refreshing relaxation along the water, but you can begin and end your day in the cool luxury of your desired inn.

The Essex Inn Bed & Breakfast is located in Tappahannock, VA, close by to well-known Tidewater rivers and with numerous coinciding creeks. According to owners Bob and Janice, “The Potomac, the Rappahannock, the James, and the York rivers of the Tidewater are the watery roads of history.”  Perch on the edge of a river pier with your fishing pole, or take your canoe or kayak down the water for a day of shoreline site-seeing.

North River is a Gloucester, VA inn with watery relaxation right in its name. Owners Breck and Mary Montague state, “The North River and her creeks provide the perfect setting for walks as well as exploring in our canoe and kayaks. From an abundance of wildlife to the ever-changing river, your jaunts will become journeys of discovery.” Three sides of the North River Inn are surrounded by water, so if you find yourself tired after a day of exploration, rest on the riverbanks, and watch the cool waters flow by.

Baywatch Inn of Franklin City is in a wonderfully quiet Virginia village. The town offers water-based activities like fishing, crabbing, clamming, kayaking, or, if you’d prefer, you can simply sit on the front porch of the inn and observe the restful beauty of the Chesapeake Bay. Innkeepers Carl and Terri Smith say, “NASA Wallops Island can be seen across the bay from Bay Watch especially at night, along with the Chincoteague Island skyline and the Assateague Island lighthouse!”

See all our B&Bs that are on the water and stay cool this summer!
