    Can't say enough good things!

    Cannot say enough great things about Tidewater Inn, Melanie and the entire team! The Inn was perfect for our NYE event as it was everything we wanted - and all our loved ones were able to stay on site, great food, great drinks, great service, great rooms!
    Melanie fantastically coordinated with us and our coordinator to create all the details for our event and we got so much feedback on how much everyone loved Tidewater!
