Try a Virginia Bed and Breakfast Inn in Colonial Beach!

Tides Inn is for sale

Colonial Beach, Virginia B&B's are beautiful, historic properties tucked away amongst tall shade trees that offer sweeping water views. Most notable is probably The Bell House a former B&B located at 821 Irving Avenue. It's a Virginia Historic Landmark on the National Register of Historic Places and it was the summertime home of Alexander Graham Bell - inventor of the telephone.  
Built in 1883, this inn featured four guest rooms and a widows walk which was open to the public. The original “privy” or outhouse even still stands on the grounds, but it is not operational. I guess that's a good thing!

Please note, The Bell House is currently a private weekend residence. Please respect the owners' privacy.
