Ten Ways to Enjoy Summer At the New Tides Inn, Just a Drive Away.

News Editors/Travel Writers

Your summer getaway is just a drive away. Within a 2.5-hour drive from Washington, D.C., or one hour from Richmond, you can find yourself on Carters Creek in a lushly wooded bird sanctuary at the newly refurbished Tides Inn, a Leading Small Hotel of the World. Rolling green hills are dotted with elegant homes, sleek boats are anchored in the bay, and the tiny town of Irvington could be a movie set of small-town America. Here are 10 ways to enjoy a relaxing summer at The Tides Inn:
-- Learn to sail with our on-site sailing school.

-- Baby-sit an oyster bed and learn about marine conservation (CrabNet Kids).

-- Play the Golden Eagle, one of Virginia's best and most challenging courses.

-- Indulge in our signature spa treatment, an alfresco massage aboard a private yacht.

-- Sample Virginia wines and regional cuisine in the Chesapeake Club.

-- Come aboard the Miss Ann, a National Historic Register yacht, to cruise the bay, followed by a traditional fish fry on the Tides' private beach.

-- Bicycle into Irvington to view the Farmers' Market in the village square, and browse antique and clothing shops.

-- Tour historic, 18th-century sites such as General Lee's birthplace, Stratford Hall; George Washington's birthplace, Wakefield; the Mary Ball Washington Museum and Library; and Colonial Williamsburg, all within an hour's drive.

-- Spread a blanket on the grass and listen to a series of outdoor concerts held on the Commons Lawn in Irvington.

-- Sleep in and gaze at the harbor view through plantation shutters; room service is just a phone call away.

The Tides Inn, including the Golden Eagle Golf Club and The Tides Marina, is located on 500 acres on Carters Creek at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. The Tides Inn re-opened April 11, 2002, as a Leading Small Hotel of the World after a multi-million-dollar renovation by new managing partners, Sedona Resorts. In addition to golf, the 106-room hotel offers 5 restaurants, a full service day spa, 64-slip marina accommodating yachts up to 150 feet, on-site sailing school, 127-foot historically registered yacht "Miss Ann," tennis, swimming, CrabNet Kids program, and over 12,000 square feet of meeting space. The Tides Inn continues Sedona Resorts' tradition of successfully repositioning and managing environmentally sensitive and culturally attuned, one-of-a-kind properties.

The Tides Inn is just a one-hour drive from Richmond International Airport, 2.5 hours from Washington, D.C. and less than 1.5 hours from Norfolk. For hotel reservations and information, visit online at or call 800-843-3746, or the hotel direct at 804-438-5000.
