My boyfriend and I stayed in the Rosemary room, for two nights/three days. It was a great size for us! The staff was beyond amazing, the hospitality was outstanding!

What a great one-night stay. Very comfortable, breakfast was amazing: crab quiche was out of this world, loaded with fresh crab meat!!! Price was perfect, $130, same as the Comfort Inn down the street. Walking distance to everything and the backyard and dock were so beautiful in the morning sun. If you are going to Solomons Island stay here. 10%... More

This is a charming old home with many facets that will charm you and modern conveniences that will meet your needs. Sara, our hostess, delivered a good introduction to the facility, and the chocolate cookies made daily were a nice treat. There are a wide variety of drinks available at all hours, and both the outdoor setting and interior accommodations... More

We appreciate your lovely review and hope that next time you will try one of the other 6 rooms. Sweet Marjoram is probably the smaller of the 7 we have to offer but as you noted the commons areas and outdoor seating allow you to enjoy the water views and family that might stop by. We are so glad it... More

At many hotels and B&B's, even after you examine their web sites, check out the reviews, and really scrutinize the photos... sometimes you win and sometimes you are booking what you " imagine" the lodging to be !!!

I stayed at the inn while scouting out the area as a retreat location for a group I lead. Can't say enough about the incredible hospitality, helpfulness, and suggestions. Additionally, the room was really nice (incredible shower) and delicious breakfasts. Small delights such as a never-ending cookie jars and small hidden Easter eggs . Can't recommend this inn enough!

This was a "last minute" reservation and stay at Back Creek Inn and we were delighted with our find. We stayed in Sweet Marjoram, a small cozy room, & it was certainly adequate for our 1 night stay.

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

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.
