Last spring, at the height of our cabin fever in New York, we set off on a small road trip, assuming we'd find some lodging on the Delmarva Peninsula. Well, it's kind of deserted in March, as you'd know if you had ever been there. We hadn't, but it was still lovely--really beautiful--and we enjoyed the drive down and the... More

I was a little nervous about staying at a b&b cause my husband generally doesn't like them. But I'm so glad we did! Mona & Violet were so hospitable! We felt very comfortable in the Ruby room which is very private! It was exceptionally clean and it felt like we had our own apartment as the house is very well... More

This B&B is not just a place to stay it is a whole wonderful experience. The hospitality the comfort and the truly marvellous five course breakfast make this B&B outstanding. Mona is generous with her time telling stories about the culture and the area. This welcoming spot is a magical place to stay. The Ruby and Sapphire rooms are large... More

I was looking for just a stopover on a long drive south, but this almost became the highlight of our trip. In fact, we deliberately planned it so we could stop here on our trip back up north. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable, and very clean, with lots of lovely touches. And the breakfast! It was almost too much... More

Was on a family vacation with my husband, son- 21yo, and daughter-18yo. I am not usually a BnB person but my husband picked Pocomoke for a good place to vacation due to it's proximity to the beach, bay and river and the reviews for the River Gem were excellent. I am so glad we came! My husband and I stayed... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in Pokomoke City at the River Gem. We stayed in the Ruby room which is large, quiet and very comfortable. The Keurig coffee right outside the door hit the spot for this early riser. The scrumptious breakfasts are so large we did not have to eat until dinner. We loved this small town with... More

You will love this place! I've been to a lot of B&B's over the years and this one was hands down the best. The room and the house have lots of great touches, the food is exceptional, and the hospitality gets an A+! Nearby, visit the Vault, Chincoteague, and the riverside restaurant.

We had a very nice stay. Mona and her daughters were great hostesses. The room was very well maintained and very spacious. The breakfast was spectacular. We don't normally stay at bed and breakfasts so this was a really great experience
