Cape Charles Historic District Review Board yesterday approved a request from the Fig Street Inn to convert an accessory building behind the main house into a guest room.

Owners Donna and Greg Kohler said their bed and breakfast business is booming since they relocated from Rhode Island and opened the Fig Street Inn in May 2011.

The inn has four guest rooms inside the house but is licensed for six rooms.

Behind the house is an out building once used as a pool house for an above-ground swimming pool since removed.

The pool house will become guest room #5.

The pool house is connected to the main house by a breezeway but is not visible from the street. The house and accessory buildings sit on seven lots. [Read more…]
