Set on its own waterfront peninsula bordered by the historic Chesapeake Bay to the east and the Rappahannock River to the south, Tides Inn is the preferred mid-Atlantic getaway for couples, families, destination weddings and small groups, who return again and again to enjoy the British colonial style guest rooms and suites with water views and Southern hospitality. Two new vacation packages let families and friends reconnect and enjoy the resort's award-winning facilities and services while pursuing a wealth of recreational activities.

  • Two-night package, based on double occupancy, is $335 per person, per night, plus tax
  • Valid for October weekends through November 1, 2009
