The Virginia Department of Health requires an inspection of all bed and breakfasts annually. Since B&Bs generally operate out of "home" kitchens, prepare only breakfast, and serve small numbers of guests, the VDH does not require an inspection of a B&B’s kitchen. Individual B&Bs may request a "hotel" inspection which includes an intense inspection of the facility’s kitchen. Like most other Virginia B&Bs, York River Inn B&B does not opt for the "hotel" inspection.
