Meet your Innkeepers:
The Inn at Tabbs Creek at Port Haywood is located in Mathews County Virginia. The Inn is owned and operated by Greg and Lori Dusenberry. Greg and Lori both are inspired by passions for the environment, organic gardening/farming, sustainable living and green building practices. Our hope is to provide guests with a relaxing experience and share our love of nature. Our Virginia Bed and Breakfast is all about supporting our local businesses and helping to restore our beloved Chesapeake Bay. We offer locally roasted coffee every morning, and serve local farm fresh eggs and locally sourced sausage as often as possible! Feel free to ask us about our “Green Re-model”, Oyster gardening program, our Perennial Gardens, as well as our glass or woodworking studios.

Our Journey to Tabbs Creek:
After visiting Lori’s parents here over the last 20 years or so, we decided to move to Mathews County in appreciation of its’ natural beauty, small town charm, but also for its concern for environmental preservation, and commitment to controlled growth and development. We decided to pursue our dream of running an eco-friendly Inn with a large garden for growing our own food. In October 2008, we purchased the Inn at Tabbs Creek. The Inn had operated off and on as a B&B previously for many years, but we decided to undergo some major renovations to get the property fully up and running while adding our own personal style to every room.
The Inn at Tabb’s Creek is the culmination of our interests and dreams. We hope you will share in this wonderful experience along with us! Now that you know a little bit about us, Stay Inn with us and let us get to know you!
