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.

The owner and her daughters were lovely, the decor was adorable, and the food was superb (especially for anyone with dietary restrictions - they truly went above and beyond to create a special, delicious meal for every dietary restriction in our party, and everything was phenomenal!). Truly a gem in Pocomoke City!

The house is beautiful and architecturally unique (historic) owners / staff (Mona, Aurora, Violet) are charming and attentive. The breakfast was beyond gourmet and delicious. I highly recommend the River Gem for anyone looking to get away and decompress. We will be back!

You will be wowed by your hosts, their hospitality, friendliness, and culinary skills; and charmed by your environment--everywhere you look. The little creative details here are fun...so look for them. You will be friends with everyone by the time you leave--your hosts, other guests, and the gnomes. And you will remember the great conversations you had in the dining room.... More
