Close to Point Lookout State Park on the Bay. House is very old but well-maintained. Complimentary wine tasting most days. Copious and delicious breakfast included while enjoying water view at picture window. Friendly owners & staff. Got a great deal, and was told we could get same price next time! Book far ahead - it is very popular!

Jim - Thinking of Woodlawn all the time. My grandmother (Marion Conrad) will be 100 years old on March 30th. She is still strong and tells us stories after stories. She is always talking about the awesome time she spent at Woodlawn reminiscing of all the by-gone days of when her mother and all her siblings were born at Woodlawn... More

We selected this B&B as the venue for my parents 40th anniversary celebration. We were not disappointed! From the moment we arrived, we felt right at home and can't say enough wonderful things about our hosts, Jim and Maggie. The views are breathtaking! I made one of my photos the desktop background on my computer at work and my-coworkers ask... More

My wife and I truly enjoyed this scenic getaway! Upon arrival, Jim, an outgoing owner and host, told me both his father and son were named Harold. Later that evening, after following Jim's recommendation for some pizza, we found ourselves instead in the midst of a local annual chili cook-off contest. We went with the flow and had unlimited chili... More

We tried this B&B after finding them on Grouping. The location was gorgeous, I would like to experience it in the Spring. We arrived late at night and the owner, Jim, left a note and key for us. We appreciated the effort. The cottage was nice but could've been a bit cleaner. We loved the bed and linens...very cozy. Breakfast... More

I was lucky enough to discover Woodlawn a few years ago when I was visiting wineries in Southern Maryland. The B&B also serves as Slack Winery, which is a bonus for any wine lover. I returned for the delicious wine 2 times after the initial visit, but always wanted to stay and enjoy the grounds which back right up to... More

This was our fifth or sixth visit to Woodlawn and the experience keeps getting better. This time the wine tasting on a sunny Sunday afternoon was a highlight. And the location, on Calvert Creek, could not be more beautiful. It's a special place we plan to return to many times in coming years.

This B&B is situated on the Calvert Creek near the Potomac River’s junction with the Chesapeake Bay. What is your basic reason for staying at a B&B? Assuming comfort and beauty are the first considerations, the second “B” is still an important part of the equation. This one disappointed us on that count –especially the first day. This historic manor... More

This August 2013 was our second visit to Woodlawn (the first was September 2012), and we hope to make it an annual tradition. It is difficult to put into words how special Woodlawn is, but I will try to provide some helpful info. The owners, Jim & Maggie, are lovely, down-to-earth, knowledgeable, kind individuals, and great conversationalists. We enjoyed getting... More

For the past 8 years, our family (and extended family) have flown and driven from all over the country to Woodlawn for a magical weekend. Having the family together is great anywhere in the world, but to have it at this amazing property makes this my favorite weekend every year. Jim Grube, the man, the myth, the legend, is as... More
