Wife & I spent the weekend in St Michaels last fall. Though we had to leave for home on Sunday, it was such a nice day outside that we decided to find a place for a few hours of kayaking. The hotel staff highly recommended Tilghman Island Marina which was only a short drive from SM. So we loaded up... More

Took a drive here. Absolutely beautiful. Very cold & windy day, to my surprise we saw deer on our way. Drove all around, very quaint.

There is nothing at the end of the road on Tilghman Island except a fabulous view. Drive out for a peaceful panorama of water and trees.

Harrison's seafood restaurant has great food and a fabulous setting on the water. Perfect for big groups, it is a large place.

Visited with friends who keep their boat in the Marina. The island is a step back to the fishing heritage that started with. There is still a working fishing fleet, a couple of nice marinas, a few fun restaurants and The Book Bank ... An amazing book store, owned by a delightful couple who have created a book lovers refuge... More

If you're looking for a place to enjoy the world in its purest form, Tilghman Island is the place for you. Soaring views of the bay and Choptank river, along with tons of walking trails/areas and some preserve areas, make this place an untouched gem. If you're looking for shops or great places to eat, you should head back to... More

I liked that it was quaint, isolated,with nature all around. There wasn't anything I disliked. We rode all the way to the point on a dirt road where the Black Walnut Inn sits completely isolated and overlooking the Chesapeake.

Tilghman Island is a special place, but it isn't for everyone. Those looking for quaint shops, a main street to walk down, and lot of restaurants will be disappointed and may want to stay in Saint Michael's. There are no gingerbread houses, no bistros, and no place to buy souvenirs. I think a lot of the negative reviews are from... More

Arguably, this is St. Michael's non-flaunty neighbor. It is a sleepy town at lands end. We came in the evening so most of the few businesses here were already closed. Still, it is worth a look for its prime coastal views of the Chesapeake bayfront.

Quoting another reviewer there--but once I saw their title I could think of no other/more informative way to put it. A few very nice B&B's, one motel, a dilapidated Inn for fishermen, and surprisingly few dining options. "Rustic", would be a good word for it. That said, there's a wonderful little market/deli place on the main road from which to... More
