The Romance

“Whimsical, extravagantly romantic, relatively undiscovered and guaranteed to make you smile”

- Coastal Living Magazine

If you're extravagantly romantic, you'll love this eccentric schoolhouse inn on Virginia's Chesapeake Bay shore. Let yourselves be swept away. Here, guests are encouraged to try the outdoor shower or bathe in the claw foot bathtub, perfect for late-night soaks under the moon. Sound a little daring? As one of the many quotations that appear throughout the garden says, “Say yes to something you usually say no to.”

However you choose to spend your time at Hope and Glory, you’ll discover unlimited opportunities to wrap yourself in its radiance and romance.

American Historic Inns has named it as one of America’s “Top Ten Most Romantic Inns”; The New York Times said “the description hardly does it justice”. Southern Living Magazine named the Hope and Glory one its “Four Favorite Romantic Getaways.”
