Benjamin Franklin Kellogg came to Cape Charles from Monmouth, New Jersey and promply built the frist private dwelling in Cape Charles in 1885.  The house stood on the corner of Fig and Mason.  It was situated directly across from, what would 5 years later be, the town's ice plant serving rail, farm and resident for some 100 years.  The plant was partially the entreneurial idea of B. F. Kellogg's son, Seab Kellogg, who had long been involved with the Pensylvania Railroad.  Rayfield's Pharmacy now sits on the site of the old ice plant property. 

Cape Charles was incorporated in 1886 and B. F. Kellogg served on the first Town Council.  The last house he built was in 1926, a clean lined stunning Jacobean Flemish Bond brick, easily seen from none other than the Kellogg Room. 

The room faces north and was originally two oddly shaped rooms that are now opened into one bright sunny room. A small sitting area provides a place to pause and there are 3-way bedside reading lamps. This is Bruce's favorite room because of it's warm yellow color and it overlooks his much loved and well tended gardens, where he is often found. Each guest room has individual climate control and ceiling fans.

Amenities include custom glycerin soaps, herbal bath grains, luxurious towels and sheets, hair dryer, iron and ioring board.  There is free WiFi throughout the bed and breakfast.
