ABOUT

The Setting

Situated on Carter’s Creek, a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay estuary in the heart of Virginia’s Northern Neck, is the Tides Inn. Just full of Southern charm, the rich history of the Tides Inn dates back to the mid 1940’s when the Ashburn Farm was transformed into “Virginia’s Family Resort,” and doors were opened to the public.

The focus at Tides is placed on heritage, maritime culture, and an undeniable dedication to hospitality and conservation. Located on a private peninsula, their waterways are home to two famous residents, blue crabs and oysters, as well as more than 3,000 migratory and wildlife species that call the area home.

They are also spearheading the Tides Inn Waterfront Restoration Project, where 18,000ft of new living shoreline will be added. You can learn more about their key role on Chesapeake Bay health as you take a river ecology kayak tour with the resident ecologist. We’ll also tempt you to grab a complimentary bike and hit the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail, stopping at the nearest winery, the Dog & Oyster, named for the rescue dogs who protect the grapes from deer and other animals. 

Sleep and Sanctuary

The 66 newly redesigned pet-friendly guest rooms and four all-new suites at the Tides Inn will inspire dreams of sparkling Chesapeake waters and spartina grass dancing in the salty breeze. Most of the Inn’s guest rooms and suites feature private patios with waterfront views for enjoying such spectacular scenery and coastal luxury.

The recently renovated deluxe and premium rooms offer comfortable accommodations with waterfront views of Carter’s Creek and lush gardens. The brand spankin’ new Ashburn Suites (named after former Ashburn Farm upon which the Inn stands) provide the ultimate private retreat, with stunning water views, rich mahogany wood and leather details, a separate living space and modern spa-like bathrooms with freestanding deep soaking tubs. 

Eat. Pray. Eat.

With an innovative approach to the unique, coastal fare of the Chesapeake region, The Tides Inn’s seasoned culinary team offers an eclectic range of dining experiences in unique settings to satisfy all palates. Start things off casually refined at the signature Chesapeake Restaurant, where locally sourced cuisine meets spectacular waterside views (both inside and out).

Assemble your coterie on the deck at Fish Hawk Oyster Bar for some “Chesapeake Gold'' and craft beers, or order in-room dining on your private balcony. For an authentic and sophisticated après le dîner, head to The Eagle Room. Rooted in rich heritage, this watering hole represents the Inn’s storied past and is outfitted with vintage Bourbon lockers and anchored by a large, hand-carved wooden eagle.
