Built in 1895, this Victorian style beach cottage with 2-story wraparound porches is located in an historic neighborhood and only a 3 minute walk to the beach. It began welcoming guests in 1917, and was also a school for 50 years. It is close to everything the Virginia Beach Oceanfront has to offer, yet seems like a step back in time to when things moved slower and high stress a thing of the future. Every room features antique furniture, comfy beds with high-quality bedding, thirsty Turkish towels and robes, hair dryers, make-up mirrors, and Victorian memorabilia . Barclay Cottage has all modern conveniences and provides amenities not found elsewhere. Rates include: gourmet full breakfasts; off street parking; fresh beach towels daily; beach chairs; umbrellas; and Boogie Boards for wave riding; Beach Cruiser bicycles; snacks and hot and cold beverages 24/7; freshly baked cookies every afternoon; wine for a nitecap; WIFI throughout; a guest business center; and large book and DVD libraries. Spend the day at the beach, enjoy the many museums and attractions in the area, or just hang out in one of the porch rockers and watch the world go by. Barclay Cottage Bed and Breakfast - the romantic alternative to high rise hotel/motel beach accommodations.
