Charming Bed & Breakfasts

Those guests looking for a cozy, charming and coastal-inspired stay will find some darling spots among the locals at these Virginia Beach bed-and-breakfasts.

Barclay Cottage has been welcoming guests to Virginia Beach since 1917, earning it numerous awards for hospitality excellence. Situated within close walking distance to the Virginia Beach oceanfront but away from the hustle and bustle of the Boardwalk, Barclay Cottage provides a restful and inspiring stay in an Victorian-inspired home-away-from-home environment. Guests enjoy complimentary beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella, bicycles and a fresh-made multi-course breakfast each morning, of course!

Just one block away from the beach, Angie’s Guest Cottage provides a cozy stay steeped in Virginia Beach history. Housed within a 1900s house once used to accommodate the families of surfmen stationed at the U.S. Coast Guard Station (now a beloved museum on 24th Street) during the summer months. After the cottage became a private home, the real “Angie” purchased it and began welcoming overnight guests. The Yates family acquired the historic home in 1978 and created the lodging experience that exists today in the main house, providing guests with a cozy, coastal-inspired and distinctly charming and hospitable stay.

Luxury Resorts

If your visit to the beach requires a little something extra, Virginia Beach will surely provide you with a luxurious retreat at which to rest and indulge yourself.

The historic Cavalier Hotel & Beach Club has stood sentinel over the Virginia Beach Oceanfront for nearly a century. Perched on a grassy hill overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Virginia’s most iconic hotel – reimagined in 2018 and now a distinguished member of Marriott’s Autograph Collection – provides a glamorous and timeless backdrop for a truly unforgettable stay in one of its 85 guestrooms. Guests enjoy a long list of luxury amenities – from a classic indoor “splash pool” and access to a private beach club, to world-class restaurants and a full-service spa.
