“Couldn't recommend it too highly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Kathryn and Autumn's hospitality is the kind that sticks in your mind - indeed I'm writing this almost three months after staying at Lodgecliffe. Normally, I'm not the best sleeper, but at Lodgecliffe I slept like a log. Was it something to do with the sound of the water lapping against the shore, or was it just the deep comfort of the bed or the high-thread cotton sheets? Was it that perfect mix of civilisation and seclusion? Was it the fact that I had the ground floor bedroom on the right with my own door onto the decking and that fantastic view across the water?
You can tell a lot about people by how they react when you've done something which, however inadvertent, must be annoying. With me, it was losing my room key on the second day. Don't even think about it, said Autumn, when I apologised. Not even a frown!
Anyway, they're great cooks, have thought long and hard about the kind of place they want to run, they want it to be better than the rest, and they've introduced all sorts of things that make sure it is. I loved staying with them,

Room Tip: Ground floor on the right facing the water - got to be the best!

I travel to Cambridge once or twice a year to do triathlons. LodgeCliffe is perfect venue. Location is fantastic, food is awesome, service is great, and the Inn itself is amazing. The Inn is right on the Choptank river and the views and are amazing. Breakfast is included and is amazing.

For the two big triathlons in Cambridge, LodgeCliffe is perfect -- right near the race venue,

The Lodgecliffe's location on the Choptank River was beautiful. There is a wonderful view of the river from the back deck of the inn, and we watched ospreys from a nest not far from the deck. We really appreciated the calm and quiet when we learned that the hotel where we had initially considered staying had five weddings while we were in town. Our room had a private entrance and was very clean and comfortable, although the shower was very tiny. Autumn and Kathryn were great hosts. They have their own garden and purchase their food from local growers, and it was apparent that their amazing breakfasts contained the freshest ingredients. We were in Cambridge to visit the Blackwater Wildlife Refuge, and we plan to return in the fall during the migratory season. We will definitely stay at The Lodgecliffe when we return.

The Lodgecliffe has a beautiful setting on the Choptank. Kathryn and Autumn are very friendly hosts. It would have been nice to have been welcomed when we arrived as it seemed odd to find a note on a door with directions to our room, then to find other guests in the lounge who seemed surprised to see us. Our room! Chesapeake Zen, was very comfortable and although it cost a little more, you had a door straight on to the deck and you were away from the lounge, which could be noisy. The bed was very comfortable and the size of the room was adequate although the shower is rather tight.
Breakfasts were freshly made with ingredients from the garden. Autumn took great pride in her food. Some of the dishes were unusual and while we enjoyed them they may not be to everyone's taste.
The highlight of the inn was sitting out in the evening watching the sun go down over the Choptank with a glass of wine. This is a delightful, relaxing location which will live long in our memories.

Room Tip: The Chesapeake Zen room is a little more expensive but worth every cent.

The location of Lodgecliffe on the Choptank is without a doubt its best feature. The two chairs sitting near the river bank make for a very relaxing setting to watch boats going back & forth, an osprey family in their nest & colorful sunsets. The rooms were clean & the breakfasts delicious & imaginative, made from local products. Our biggest concern was the aloofness of the innkeepers. They didn't make it a practice to be available for check-in. There would be a note taped on the front door & an invitation for guests to "make yourselves at home" along with instructions to ring the bell on the banister if one needed anything. The innkeepers were only seen or heard at breakfast, when they explained the breakfast menu.

Room Tip: If wifi is a priority for you, I'd recommend a downstairs room. The coverage doesn't extend...

My girlfriend and I reserved a room a while back and prior to coming I asked whether they could do a surprise for her in honor of her bday. They recommended their romance package which was quite lovely (champagne, flowers, local chocolates). They also said they had a last minute cancellation and they asked me if I wanted to upgrade from the Sarah's Loft room to The Chesapeake Zen room at no charge. It was very thoughtful of them to consider us. Beautiful sunset views. Great stars at night. We really liked being able to have breakfast with other guests. It was a great opportunity to talk to folks we might not have otherwise met. Autumn recommended a few great restaurants in town for us to have dinner. Jimmie and Sooks was wonderful! great food, comfortable atmosphere. All in all, an easy, relaxing get away. We highly recommend it.

Room Tip: The Chesapeake Zen room had a private entrance with direct access to the porch. Gorgeous!

My husband and I wanted a quick getaway and found Lodgecliffe to be a perfect fit. From the moment you walk in the front door until you walk out to leave, the place exudes tranquility, comfort and wholesome goodness. We felt relaxed, welcome and pampered. Kathryn and Autumn have established a sense of magic here. We needed a place to unwind and found it within these peaceful walls.
The homemade breakfast was perfectly prepared and warmed served by Kathryn (Autumn was away on business and we look forward to meeting her next time). Our room was full of wonderful touches from Roses, a gift box of Chocolates from a local shop, and a personalized welcoming note.
The room itself was spacious and well appointed with a sitting area (fireplace that we didn't need due to the unexpected warm weather), The Bedding was comfortable and bed was firm without being hard. Bathroom with walk in shower stall was full of hot water (no problem here for us), Had it been too warm there was also an air conditioner, although we didn't need that either). The Ceiling fan was enough to keep the room comfortable. Shutters provided complete privacy and the room was well lit with more than enough light options. From a technology perspective there was excellent wifi without passwords required and enough power outlets to charge our many electronic gadgets. We truly felt welcome and at home here at Lodgecliffe and look forward to a return visit more sooner than later.
