Three couples recently spent the weekend at White Swan Tavern in Chestertown, MD. We had a very nice stay and our hostess was friendly and helpful. One couple decided to change rooms, because they liked the new location better. Our hostess was very accommodating and made the change happily. But imagine our surprise when we received our bill and had... More

We rented The White Swan to host our family in Chestertown for a small (20pp) wedding. We hosted a larger party of approx 50 people for a pre-wedding event. The staff was warm and helpful, and the Inn itself perfect for our event. The trees of the back garden create a romantic private backdrop. The interior is steeped in history... More

Chestertown is a lovely town and we thought The White Swan a very characterful and indeed stylish place to stay- quite in keeping with the feel of the town.Built in 1730 and was pretty much wholly reconstructed some years ago but certainly has the feel of a genuinely old inn. It has its own little museum, which is unusual in... More

Very comfortable stay in this impeccably restored 18th century inn in the center of town. The room had two canopied beds, was quiet as a mouse even though it faced the front, and comfortably furnished with period reproductions. The staff was welcoming, parking (go around the block behind the inn) easy, and the public rooms were charming. If you want... More

The White Swan is fine for a place to sleep, but I would not rate it any higher than an average motel. It is VERY rustic. We stayed in the John Lovegood room (shown above in traveler’s photos). The tavern is conveniently located in the middle of town for those going to Chestertown or to visit the college. We had... More

We visited Chestertown for its concentration of Federal-era buildings, much resembling Old Town, Alexandria but without the crowds. We kind of blindly walked into White Swan Tavern looking for a room because it was right downtown, good walking, and the exterior looked like something out of the movie "Tom Jones." Indeed, it was built in 1730 but has been almost... More

Relaxing comfortable stay at the White Swan, conveniently located on the main street of town near shops and restaurants. We were warmly greeted; accommodations were historic and charming but at the same time luxurious. The afternoon tea and continental breakfast hit the spot; all in all a very nice stay despite rather dreary winter weather.

We were very pleased with the inn. You feel like you stepped back in time as all of the furnishing are very period appropriate. We were provided a small fruit basket when we arrived. Tea in the afternoon included ice tea and lemonade in addition to hot tea or coffee. Mini desserts were also provided. The continental breakfast the next... More

We immediately felt like we stepped back in time at this lovely renovated B&B...the suite was amazing, roomy and comfortable. Everyone was so friendly and made us feel like family. Mornings offered fresh coffee and a continental breakfast, then you are invited to a "tea" in the afternoons with little desserts. White Swan is in the center of town and... More
