    Built in 1895, and accommodating guests since 1917, Barclay Cottage is the oldest lodging establishment in Virginia Beach. It is one of only two Victorian Cottages still standing in the city (the other is a museum!). Lillian Barclay ran a private school on the premises for 50 years before it became solely a B&B in 1991. Two blocks from the beach, on a dead end street, it is close to everything yet is in a residential neighborhood.

    A sumptuous full breakfast is served in the Great Room each morning and is included with your room charge. After breakfast, head to the beach with the complimentary beach chairs, umbrellas, towels and boogie boards – or, ask hosts Steve and Marie-Louise LaFond for suggestions on the many other local activities. Later, rock on one of the wrap-around porches sipping a cold drink while planning which of the 20 restaurants within walking distance to try that evening. Check the theater, concert, and club listings for after dinner entertainment, or plan a quiet evening on the porch, in the Great Room, or in one of the reading nooks.

    At Barclay Cottage, a Virginia Beach bed and breakfast, you will enjoy all of today’s conveniences as you bask in the peacefulness of a time when life seemed to move more slowly and stress was a thing of the future.
    At our romantic Virginia Beach lodging, you will be within walking distance of just about everything that makes this one of the most desired vacation destinations in the United States.

    Are you a beach bum? Or a history buff? Do you love the outdoors? Are you celebrating a romantic milestone? Are you returning from deployment? We’ll help you tailor your visit to include your favorite Virginia Beach, VA activities.
    Relaxation comes quickly as you lazily rock in one of the many rocking chairs on the best front porch in North America. Spy on the birds hiding in the treetops and watch the neighborhood, as people have been doing here for more than 100 years.

    Rest as never before in luscious bedding that will lure you to sleep in exquisite comfort!
    Romance. You can feel it here. Hold hands as you walk with your feet in the sand or watch the sun rise over the water.

    Our tender loving care will take you back to the days when someone else managed the details and all you had to do was be there.[noeditbeyond]
