A note from the Innkeeper/s

Visit their website for
additional information!


Circa 1885. Cradled between Chesapeake Bay and the beach, this Queen Anne Victorian graces the historic district with an inviting, wicker-furnished wraparound front porch and a veranda with a flower garden shaded by a large magnolia tree. The bed and breakfast is filled with literary memorabilia and portraits that honor writers and their books. Sit by the fire in the Mark Twain Reading Parlor. Each guest bedroom realistically reflects a famous author. Select the 1920s jazzy Harlem Renaissance of the Langston Hughes Room or the romantic Jane Austen Room with a clawfoot tub and ambiance of Regency England. The Robert Louis Stevenson Room offers 19th-century high-seas adventure. Linger over a gourmet breakfast in the French Café Colette where afternoon tea and evening liqueur are also served. A stocked refrigerator and microwave is available for guest use.
