Gardens and gardens, oh did I say gardens: I believe most varieties of plants grown in northeastern US are found planted here. The aroma changes with the season. Get up early to watch the sun rise over the Back Creek. Then settle back to a delicious breakfast appetizer of coffee cake and whatever brew you wish coffee or tea. But... More

Thanks Elvin, it was a great weekend with you and Lorraine. Most satisfying was the bond you made with several other guests and how much you enjoyed each other's company. It's nice to have people meet and make new friends over common interests. We passed on your glowing praise of the gardens to Leah. Glad you enjoyed them while relaxing... More

The two of us stayed for 4 nights in September 2013. Staff is very welcoming and kitchen is available to make drinks and eat their cookies at all hours. Rooms are smallish but comfortable. Nice views of the water and lovely graden to sit in (watch out for mosquitos in the evening). Very nice sun room to sit in and... More

We appreciate the kind words and hope that you will venture our way again. So glad you enjoyed your stay with us last fall. We've done a kitchen remodel this past winter but the cookies and beverages are still available to enjoy while you relax. Have a wonderful 4th of July! More

We have greatly enjoyed three stays at the Back Creek Inn. Carol and her staff are extremely helpful and friendly--happy to talk and offer advice but not intrusive. We've stayed in three of the seven available rooms, and all have been fine. The breakfasts are excellent--super eggs benedict especially; also great homemade cookies,iced tea, and other drinks available throughout the... More

My wife and I had to put off celebrating our Wedding Anniversary until this past Memorial Day weekend. Man am I glad we did! The weather was spectacular, and the Back Creek Inn is ideally located to maximize enjoyment of good weather! This gem of a Bed and Breakfast is very reasonably priced, and is meticulously clean (which is always... More

My husband and I loved coming back to stay at the The Back Creek Inn for our second year attending the "Tiki Bar" opening. The location is prime but tucked away for total relaxation. You can park your car and walk or bike everywhere. The food is delicious and we were able to enjoy breakfast with our friends outside on... More

Thanks guys for the wonderful review and as always we enjoy having you with us. I'm pretty sure if I remember correctly you already booked for next year already. "Early bird gets the worm" or room in this case. It's always nice when friends come together too, you seem to relax quicker. Have a great rest of the summer and... More

This was such an unexpectedly gracious place to spend a couple of nights this last week on my first visit to Solomons' Island-- 2 blocks away from the action but so tucked away you would never know the tourist scene was buzzing. The best benefit for me was the easy access to the waterway for kayaking the scenic creeks leading... More

My fiance and I spent a few days at The Back Creek Inn on Solomons Island, MD. When we arrived, we were pleasantly greeted by Sara who gave us a tour of the B&B and made us very welcomed. We had the room right off the breakfast area which also has a private porch where we sat and had wine... More

The Back Creek Inn has a great location on Solomons Island. When we arrived, Sara greeted us and we found that the room we had selected was right next to the breakfast room and breakfast was served 8:30-9:30. Hoping to sleep until about 9:15, we requested another room, and fortunately, they had something else open and were kind enough to... More

Thank you, Brian and Robin for including how we tried to accommodate your requests and preferences. You made reference to "like a hotel". A hotel has many rooms, so they have lots of staff to support their business. With only seven rooms to offer, the rates would have to be much higher, if more staff and variety of breakfast foods...
