Mona and daughters..... Thank you for such a wonderful experience. My friend and have started Bed and Breakfasts for our Writers Retreats. Our first stay was this past weekend at The River Gem. From the time we opened the door until the time we loaded up our car to leave, was nothing but outstanding! Mona is such a positive femal... More

Our stay at the River Gem was really a treat. From the welcome drink and sweet to the period piece furnishings to the absolutely amazing breakfast, this was one of the most pleasant stays we have had. Mona and her daughters make this B&B what it is with their attention to detail, talents in the kitchen, and warm and welcoming... More

Thanks, Mona and Violet, we had a great stay. The B&B is located in a very interesting Victorian house. The room we stayed in had a lot of character, and was also very comfortable will all the amenities. Although the property itself had a lot of personality, our hosts remain the most memorable aspect of the experience. Mona has a... More

I write kayak adventure books, and my wife of 33 years is my kayak buddy. We were investigating the Pocomoke River and its access points. The wife wanted a B&B rather than a hotel. When you are married that long you learn to say "yes dear"with a smile. We were catered to with a smile, and asked if we needed... More

My son and I stayed there recently. What a wonderful experience. Truly what a B&B is about. This is a must stay if you are in that area. The innkeepers were so nice. Clean Room. Great Food. Excellent Service.

My husband & I recently stayed at the River Gem B&B during our East Coast road trip. Mona & Violet were so warm & welcoming. Mona was lovely, and gave us some ideas of where to explore - Chincoteague and Assateague Islands are a must-do, and the Riverside Grill was friendly and the food was delicious. Breakfast was just amazing... More

My teenage daughter and I stayed at The River Gem in the small town of Pocomoke City for 3 days while making daily forays out to explore Chincoteague and Assateague Islands. We left the house each morning fortified by Mona and Violet's superb breakfasts (by the 2nd day, my daughter was getting ME up in anticipation of breakfast!) and set... More

From the moment we walked in the door to the moment we walked out to leave, everything was wonderful! Mona and Violet welcomed us like friends. We were visiting Princess Anne, MD for a conference at UMES and friends recommended The River Gem in Pocomoke City. The Ruby Room was delightful...clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were awesome...waffles and ice cream... More

Words cannot express how welcomed we felt at River Gem B&B by Mona and Violet. We travelled from Los Angeles, CA to the quaint town of Pocomoke, MD and found a treasure trove of hospitality, information, and great town stories! But the best gift of all was the homemade 4 course breakfast made from scratch and prepared with such loving... More

We loved staying at the River Gem BnB. The BnB was extremely clean, beautiful and a very comfortable place to stay. The food the owner prepared was superb. The presentation at the table was lovely. I am originally from Pocomoke City and it was great to have a place to stay that felt like home. I would highly recommend this... More
