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

Great bed, bathroom and breakfast. Perfect personal warmth and hospitality. Makes you want to stay longer, to enjoy great service and time away from the daily hustle and bustle. The fresh-baked cookies, pastries and cake, crepes, granola, yogurt, fresh fruit, scones and more helped warm us up on a surprisingly cold week end on the Eastern Shore. Those and a... More

We loved our stay at the River Gem. It is a great play to stay in a beautiful small town. Mona, Aurora and Violet were all so welcoming. The breakfasts they fixed were excellent :) They were very helpful with information about Pocomoke and about the surrounding communities. We stayed in the Sapphire room which was very comfortable!! We will... More

My wife and I stayed in the Sapphire Room for four nights. Mona and Violet made us feel very welcome and right at home, even offering to help us carry in our bags. The breakfasts were superb and over the top in quantity. The room was clean and inviting. There are some things that the room needs to be top-notch.... More

We were traveling south and needed a place to stay for just one night. We prefer B&B's when possible and were very lucky to find this one at the last minute. We stayed in the Ruby room and had the best night's sleep in what felt like months. Then breakfast the next morning was just incredible - way more food... More

The River Gem B&B is a great place to stay! We were greeted by Violet, and quickly introduced to Mona who showed us around the B&B and offered us fresh iced tea and cookies that Violet had made for us :) The room (Ruby) was very nice and we were very comfortable. The River Gem is very green which we... More

Stayed here during a road trip and loved the charm of the oldest building in town. Owner Mona is chatty and eager to please and has done a phenomenal job of making the place inviting - right down to having hot tea and cookies available at any time. It's a great base for getting crab cakes or getting into a... More

We rode in the annual Seagull Century and decided to stay here because it was less expensive than other surrounding area hotels and i've always wanted to stay at a B&B. I cannot be happier with my first experience and I hope that any future stays at other B&B's will be as good as this! When I called Mona to... More

We chose this B and B in part because it is centrally located to several places we wanted to kayak in: Janes Island State Park, the Pocomoke River, and Oyster Bay, near Assateague Island. Mona and her daughter were exceptionally helpful in letting us store our kayaks in their garage and sending links that were helpful in planning our trip.... More

We found this B&B by chance at the end of a 7 day trip, and were delighted. This is the way a B&B should be - charming, with good food and a friendly host, and little touches of charm everywhere. We'll be back.
