The Tides Inn

October 11th, 2009

Mr. vB and I snuck away this weekend for an early Anniversary Celebration.  Have you guys ever been to Irvington, VA?  No offense to it, but if you blink too long you might miss it.  Surprisingly nestled right on one of its many creeks is a 5 Star Resort called THE TIDES INN. It was a very quick visit, but W-O-W! From start to finish it was amazing!


When we checked in, the front desk clerk told us that we had a note waiting for us.

We also found out that we had been upgraded to a suite overlooking the creek.

When we opened the door we were greeted with…

DSC_0320 and these..

DSC_0322What a view!!


Once we got over the shock of our amazing digs, we decided to venture out.

DSC_0294Gotta love the self-timer.





DSC_0277I think these corkscrews might be Guinness World Record Worthy.


Before long it was time to head back! Cocktail hour was calling our name!

DSC_0321So the way dinner worked was that we had a server come up from the restaurant and take our order for each course of dinner.  We started with some cocktails and appetizers.

DSC_0345The entrees were fabulous! I had the crab-cakes and Mr. vB had the Filet.


We ended the meal with a brownie sundae topped with whip cream! YUMMO!  It didn’t last long enough for any photos- Sorry!

It was such a nice treat being able to eat in the room vs. the restaurant.  Mr. vB and I loved watching the sun set and the boats coming in and out of the marina.


Many thanks to my Mums and Daddio for the special treat! It was such a great surprise!  And many thanks to the Tides Inn for making our anniversary getaway so memorable!

    Happy early Anniversary! Looks like a great celebration! If you ever venture back to Irvington, you should check out the Hope and Glory Inn. We stayed there for our “mini-moon.” The little cottages are quite cute and romantic, the food is grand, and the owners are wonderful…

    Jason and I have been there…he had to go for work…I got to tag along. BEAUTIFUL. He even got to go out on the boat! We ordered room service…I had 2 of our 3 kiddos back then. Ellie loved eating breakfast in bed! I have the cutest pics of her lounging around and eating :) I really would like to go back for some alone time! Ahhhh, maybe someday. Happy Anniversary! Love the pics!

    My stepfather made the corkscrews. He also made the toothbrush columns on the dental office in Irvington. Looks like you had a great time.
