We were looking for a b&B in Chestertown, always a challenge when we discovered the Inn on the River at Ralph's or Rolph's Wharf (spelling depends upon your GPS or map). It was a small gem with wonderfully friendly and helpful Hosts. A short walk to a cozy Bar (wine, beer and food) on a neat little beach overlooking the... More

My husband, mother-in-law, our two dogs and I had a(nother) excellent experience at The River Inn two weeks ago. Sandy, the Innkeeper is very warm and accommodating.

We were married on the lawn of the River Inn on Sunday, August 4, 2013, and it was a beautiful venue and the service was excellent. We had the entire inn for our family for several nights, and the rooms were clean, comfortable, and cozy. This is the third family event at this facility, and it is highly recommended.

We spent two nights and both nights, we sat out on the porch just enjoying the evening. There is a bar right down at... More
