My friend and I recently snuck out of town to get some much needed R&R after the holidays. With no agenda and no schedule Marta and the John L Stam House provided us with a relaxing atmosphere and just the right amount of luxury. The warm, inviting rooms, soft comfy beds and roaring fires instantly soothed and relaxed us. Restaurant... More

Lovely Victorian B&B - about midway between High Street and Mary Washington College. 5 minute walk to "downtown." The house has several rooms available and the hostess (Marta) goes out of her way to make guests feel welcome in this home. Breakfast was a real treat, and coffee was terrific. Nice porch and gardens. A real jewel.

We found Marta and the John Stam/Hill's Inn B&B through a recommendation from another B&B owner and were so glad we did. Marta is a wonderful host and we had such a lovely time. The accommodations were terrific (I can assure you the bed in the Jarrell Room is very very comfortable), the host is a charm, gracious and so... More

Marta is the ultimate innkeeper! She makes perfect coffee as early in the am as you need it and makes raspberry iced tea in the pm and always has sherry in the parlor. The side porch is lovely in the morning - watch the ospreys circle overhead as they search for breakfast in the nearby Chester River. The Inn is... More

A beautifully restored and comfortable Victorian B&B; we enjoyed Marta's hospitality here for two days. Delicious foods at breakfast and first-rate coffee. Generous portions too. Highly recommended! The inn is centrally located in this early-American Eastern shore town. We'll be back, Marta! Mike & Claire F

We stayed 2 nights in this wonderful historical Victorian home. I can't say enough good things about this Inn. Marta, the innkeeper, is a gracious host and you immediately feel at home. She has lovingly restored this home to a beautiful B & B that truly takes you back in history. The rooms are spacious and decorated with lovely antiques.... More

Marta took very good care of us on our recent stay. The most impressive aspect of our stay was the comfort of the bed and sheets. I seriously could have stayed in bed for a month. The room was lovely as was the whole house. We enjoyed the made to order breakfast as well. I will stay at this B... More

Our stay here was so enjoyable. It was our first experience staying in a B&B and Marta, the Innkeeper, really made it special, we are definitely spoiled. Marta and her husband have been restoring the home with so much love and appreciation for the architecture, it is very clear. Marta was so warm and delightful. Our room had a queen... More
