Our room, off of the main building, in an adjacent cottage, is cute and quaint. It has the feeling of being at a friend's house rather than a hotel. I am very happy we stayed here because we would have never discovered the restaurant otherwise....More

The building is lovely. We first sat outside but before we had a chance to order it started raining and we had to move inside. This seemed to bother the lady who was working there, who was pretty ungracious about it. The young man who...More

Once the home of Robert Morris who gained fame as "Financier of the Revolution". General and later President George Washington was a close friend and visited Robert Morris often. In more recent times author James Michener outlined his famous novel, Chesapeake here and fell in love with our renowned crab cakes.Now the Eastern Shore's most unique historic restaurant with rooms under celebrity Chef Proprietor, Mark Salter and Ian Fleming.Enter the Inn and step back 300 years: a pristine yet historic interior welcomes with timber beams, panelled walls and open fires in the cooler months. Through to Salter's Tavern featuring historic red brick walls and old slate floors, with magnificent fires in the cooler months and offering casual outside dining on our Terraces and Veranda during balmy warm summers.This is a truly historic Inn, cosy with a natural patina running through. Friendly, great cuisine and understated professional service.
