My friend and I recently took a brief vacation at the beautiful Back Creek Inn BnB in Solomons Island, Maryland. What an oasis, especially after this long cold winter that never seemed to want to leave! We were so pleased that the gardens (the crowning glory of the inn), were in close to full bloom. My friend, whose own gardens... More

Dinah you have missed your calling as a travel writer! What a wonderful description of your activities and the places and people you met. It gives others an idea of what to expect and maybe even how to plan. We are always pleased to have you come and stay and share us with friends. Thank you for the gracious words... More

Have stayed here several times over the last 2 years and EVERY time it has been excellent. The staff goes out of their way to accommodate breakfast for me as I am usually having to leave earlier than normal for sailing classes. They have the BEST strawberry jam for breakfast!

BCI is a wonderful, relaxing place. Our room, Chamomile, was very nice. This room requires a wired Internet device if you want access. The inn supplies the wire. It was bright and the bathroom was a good size. The breakfasts were superb. We enjoyed talking with everyone on the staff. We were able to launch our kayaking from the lawn... More

Thank you Jeanne for the great review. We were glad your weekend was relaxing and the kayaking worked out for you as well. Chamomile being the original master is grand in space and number of windows as well. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you both again. Have a safe and memorable holiday! More

We've stayed at the Back Creek Inn for the past 6 years over Thanksgiving, and it's been such a lovely place to relax. Lovely house with a warm and welcoming staff and owner, Carol. After a delicious full breakfast with home-made goodies, we enjoy going fossil-hunting. The Calvert Marine Museum is just down the street and is fun to explore,... More

Thank you Nancy, as always Thanksgiving wouldn't be the same with you both being here. We give thanks for regular friends like you who keep coming back and also who share their fossil finds. It was brisk for fossil hunting this year but the weather has turned milder and unseasonably warm for December. We look forward to having you back... More

The Lavender Cottage with screen porch is so nice. The welcome balloon & cake was special. The breakfasts were delicious. Take a river cruise from the Calvert Museum. Eat the crab dinner at The Striped Rock & the fried oysters at Solomon's Pier.

We love it when people come for whatever reason but celebrations allow us to put a little extra to start the festivities rolling. So glad you enjoyed the cake and ballon and all that Solomons has to offer for food and fun. There is more... so make plans to return to us again. Thank you for taking the time to... More

My partner and I never explored southern Maryland, despite living only 2 hours away in Montgomery county, so we decided that Solomon's Island was a good place to start. Back Creek Inn set the tone from the moment we arrived, with a warm greeting, beautiful garden and dock, and open attitude. We stayed in the Thyme room for 3 relaxing... More

This beautiful B&B is tucked away at the end of a side street off Solomon's Island Road, away from any of the busy-ness associated with the main drag. The house was originally built some time in the 1800's, and the older sections of the structure are quite quaint. We stayed in one of the rooms that constitute the oldest part... More

If you're visiting the Chesapeake, do not miss the Back Creek Inn at Solomons, MD. A wonderful 4-day stay in late August - the weather was perfect, the service/food were everything you could hope for, the grounds magnificent.
