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

We stay here every year for the Chestertown Tea Party. This B and B is right in the center of all the activity, walking distance to the river, resaurants and shops. The rooms are nicely appointed with period furniture that is comfortable. Modern amenities include wifi and TV. Breakfast in the dining room or patio is relaxing. afternoon tea is... More

We have spent the weekend at other B & B's in the area but never right in town. We loved having a convenient place to park and then walking everywhere around Chestertown. We never moved the car all weekend. The Tavern was not full and we received an upgrade upon our arrival without even asking--nice touch! One of us had... More

We spent a weekend at the White Swan....the staff, our room, afternoon tea...everything was great! They had afternoon tea from 3-5, hosted by a staff member who also teaches at Washington College; he was a delight. We enjoyed the display of artifacts found when the old tavern was restored. We enjoyed walking around the old colonial town of Chestertown, and... More

The White Swan is a historic building used prior to 1733 as a tannery and then as a tavern beginning in 1793. Beautifully restored, the rooms are large and comfortable. Located on High St. in the middle of the historic district of Chestertown on the Eastern Shore of MD, this is the perfect place for a quiet week-end. We loved... More

My wife and I have stayed at the White Swan Tavern several times over the past fifteen years, and always loved being there. The inn is completely unique in our experience; being small-scale, intimate, magnificently restored and filled with items consistent with eighteenth-century colonial American design. The two front rooms available for all guests to use on the ground floor... More

Charming historical inn. Very friendly, helpful staff have all been there many years. We had several lively conversations with innkeeper Wayne. We came for the Downrigging (tall ships) and Sat. the weather was terrible and Wayne lit all the fireplaces and some of the candles Sat. night. There is a small television downstairs, which was great for checking on the... More
