Tucked away on a private peninsula off the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia, the Tides Inn is a 4-star property with amazing water views. The property welcomes everyone, including pets, and offers an extensive activities list for all ages. 

Rooms and suites are decorated in a British-colonial style with mahogany tones, while bathrooms feature marble. In-room amenities include a coffeemaker, Wi-Fi, bathrobes and a signature ginger ale with turn-down service each evening. There are five restaurants on site, each with a unique setting: Chesapeake Restaurant, Chesapeake Terrace, Overlook Dining, Commodore's and Golden Eagle Grill. Because the Tides Inn is located along the Virginia Wine Trail, each restaurant offers an expansive list to pick from.  

This waterfront property is not shy when it comes to on-site activities. Guests can choose from golfing, renting bikes, water sports or even a relaxing day at the full-service spa. Unique classes are also offered like a mixology class or oyster roasting. Kids 4-12 have an array of supervised activities to choose from such as tennis camp or golf camp. Join other guests around a campfire every evening at either the terrace or the beach (weather permitting) for s'mores and stargazing. Wi-Fi, valet parking and use of sports equipment is covered with the daily resort fee. 

Explore one of many wineries along the Virginia Wine Trail nearby. The Tides Inn is also near the Virginia Oyster Trail, home to the largest producer of farm-raised oysters in the country.

Location on the river and view. Great place to unplug from the hectic day to day of metro area and work.
Other Comments
Location was excellent. A good place if you want to unplug, quiet, stores and eateries close early for those coming from metro areas. Irvington and Kilmarnick have several choices of both for off property activities. Resort food is good, however pricing is on the high side. We selected balcony option which turned out to be terrace. View of river was excellent. Tried not to answer last two questions above as I feel it is a property that would appeal to a specific audience that enjoys river/water/biking/quite outdoor activities. great sailing classes for kids and adults. Therefore recommendation would be to those drawn to this type of quiet environment vs more active destination.

Tides Inn charged tax on my bill when checking out. I thought that tax was included in my $159 dollar payment to Travel Zoo. I brought the matter to the attention of the front desk but was told that I was incorrect . Rather than make a fuss at checkout I thought I would persue the room sales tax and the occupancy tax issues at a later time. If possible, please let me know if I was taxed incorrectly.

I've traveled a lot, but this was the only resort that took a longer time to check in. It took us 3 hours to get here and we arrived little after 3pm, but they gave us a room close to 5pm even though their check in time was at 4pm:-(
