Welcome to sweeping views of the Piankatank River and Fishing Bay. Welcome to the cradle of the Commonwealth, where our shores have witnessed explorers, Native Americans, and a beachcomber or two. Welcome to Edentide Inn.
Located just 45 minutes from Williamsburg or an hour and fifteen minutes from Richmond, Edentide Inn offers you a charming escape from a hectic and hurry-up world. The Edentide Inn pace is easy and at your own tempo. It invites you to linger, catch your breath, and enjoy the heartfelt hospitality of the Chesapeake Bay lifestyle. If you’ve forgotten how to take it easy, let us show you how.
Edentide, circa 1883, has been lovingly restored and transformed into a boutique Bed and Breakfast. Hidden off the Chesapeake Bay and nestled on 13 stunning riverfront acres, Edentide Inn will serve as your weekend getaway, the location of your dream wedding, or your romantic river escape.
From the moment you meander down the oyster shell driveway, you will feel the radiance of Edentide’s 19th century appeal. The rambling property stretches more than 250 feet on the shore of the Piankatank River. The bluff side location affords bay breezes with wide vistas of Fishing Bay, Stove Point and Gwynn’s Island. You will awaken to the river air and spectacular sunrises, osprey soaring over the river, sailboats skimming the waters of Fishing Bay, and finish off your day toasting stunning sunsets.
The graceful columned manor house welcomes you like a southern belle. The accommodations are romantic and timeless. Warmth and intimacy greet you the minute you walk through your private entrance into the grand parlor. Casual elegance abounds with hospitable interiors and well appointed rooms. A large fireplace with its hand carved mantel and twin Chippendale sofas is the focal point of the parlor. The elegant antiques, inviting décor, and many thoughtful touches help Edentide Inn captivate you with her mesmerizing charm.
Enjoy your first cup of coffee while soaking up the warmth of the sun on the veranda. It’s a magnificent place to curl up with a good book or to enjoy your favorite cocktail. It also affords stunning views of the grounds, which you will share with the innkeeper’s friendly dogs and cat. The gently sloping lawn has also been the site of magical wedding receptions, cocktail parties and many hotly contested croquet matches. Just how civilized can life be!
This weekend snuggle up, uncork the wine, and unwind. You’ll see that Edentide Inn is definitely a southern belle worth calling on.
