The furnishings and decorations created a nice atmosphere for our stay. The location was excellent for walking to the maritime museum or to dinner or to the craft brewery tasting room. Janet was a great host willing to answer questions or just chat. My wife and I woke in the morning and said to each other - "that was the... More

Janet and her husband were great hosts in this 1799 home right in the heart of town. I don't know how she does it, but the home is immaculate and nicely period correct but you feel very comfortable and at ease. We stayed in the room with a king bed on the second floor. The bed was great and the... More

Dr. Dodson's is a well maintained historical B & B. The Douglas suite is tastefully decorated and well supplied with amenities and creature comforts. Breakfast choices were delicious and the hostess/owner added excellent conversation to our mornings.The B & B has a central location and Janet provided great suggestions for reataurants and activities. Overall, our stay at the Dodson House... More

I wanted to do something different to help celebrate my birthday this year and had never been to a Bed and Breakfast. I had heard how beautiful St. Michael's was and chose that location for my first experience. I chose the Dodson House after reviewing comments from other travelers, the description of the B&B itself and information on the owner,... More

St. Michaels is our favorite village on the Eastern Shore and Dr. Dodson House is now our favorite inn. This B&B combines cozy, comfortable and clean accommodation with delicious breakfast served by the charming innkeeper. Excellent value for the cost; we will be back!

On our 25th wedding anniversary (Valentines day weekend) we booked the top floor (Douglas suite) at Dr. Dodson's house in St. Michaels Maryland. The best restaurants are in walking distance of Main Street (Ava's, Theo's, Bistro). B E D: The accommodations are excellent! King sized bed, windows with the view of the water. Sofa chairs and couch with knitted blankets... More

First trip to St. Michaels and first stay at a bed and breakfast. I am happy to say that I will be visiting St. Michaels and Dr. Dodson's again. Janet, the innkeeper, was superb. Her breakfast is better than any upscale restaurant. We stayed in the Dodson room. It was very cozy and the king size bed was the most... More

Our experience began before our arrival when Janet emailed to let us know about the Christmas in St. Michael's weekend event and that it would cause road closures. She was also kind enough to offer restaurant suggestions and recommended making reservations. Janet takes the time and energy to ensure you have a wonderful time and it shows. The room was romantic,... More

This was our third time staying at the Dr. Dodson Bed & Breakfast in St. Michaels, MD and each time has been a delight. It is beautifully furnished with charming antiques, yet offers the conveniences that make it so comfortable. It is quiet, spotlessly clean, and has a very interesting history which the very kind and personable Innkeepers so willingly... More

a weekend getaway to celebrate an anniversary is special on its own. Couple that with a interesting location, even better. Top it off with a special place to stay and the weekend will be perfect. That makes St. Michaels a great choice, because it's not a far drive from Baltimore, DC, NJ, DE, etc. and you're driving away from congestion... More
