A Treasured Past

In the spring of 1946, The Ashburn Farm began its transformation into the stunning Tides Inn. The expansive, waterfront farm had been in the Ashburn family for over 150 years before being purchased by E.A. Stephens, a New Orleans businessman. On July 15th, 1947, the Tides Inn opened to the public. The Tides soon established itself as the premier resort in the Mid-Atlantic region. After three generations of the Stephens family’s stewardship, the inn was purchased by Enchantment Group in 2001. With extensive renovations carrying the Chesapeake Bay resort into a new era, the Tides Inn has become the charming Virginia retreat it is today.
