About The Hope and Glory Inn

The Hope and Glory Inn is a boutique Chesapeake Bay hotel consisting of 6 rooms and 10 cottages. It is situated within a classic waterfront town on the Chesapeake Bay’s western shore.

Six individually decorated rooms in a historic 1890 schoolhouse eclectically styled and hopelessly romantic; six quaint English cottages and lush grounds featuring flowers rarely seen in Virginia gardens today. Add this to four Carpenter Gothic cottages called "tents" located adjacent to our vineyard in Vineyard Grove which is situated at the headwaters of Carter's Creek. Follow winding paths through authentic English gardens; complete with a moon garden which only blooms in the evening; and, an outdoor shower (circa 1940) with a claw foot tub and sink in a totally private setting. Sweet strains of music continuously drift softly throughout the hotel and out over the grounds to the paths and gardens. All situated in a Chesapeake Bay waterfront village full of chic shops and 427 endearing people.

Beyond the gardens at our Chesapeake bay hotel, there is The Meeting House, a small retreat and conference center offering today’s technology in a creative and totally wireless environment that only can be found at The Hope and Glory. Our clientele includes the Fortune 500: The Kellogg Foundation, Leo Burnett, Pfizer Corporation, Procter and Gamble and Philip Morris.

Cruise onto the water aboard our authentic Chesapeake Bay oyster boat also known as a "dead rise," the Faded Glory.

Experience our fabulous Patricio in RECESS. On the second floor of our inn, we offer extraordinary spa treatments fourteen of them.

It is an easy walk through Hope and Glorys Vineyard The Dog and Oyster to the tents (three bedroom cottages) in Vineyard Grove where one can soak by our pool or paddle your canoe or kayak from our dock.
