“Another fabulous stay at Wade's Point”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2011

My husband and I just returned from a weekend at Wades's Point. We have been coming here for over 20 years and have never been disappointed. We have stayed in the main house, the farmhouse (rented the whole place last summer for our 20th Anniversary) and the Mildred Kemp building. Betsy and her daughter and the entire staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful. We have always felt we have the run of the house and are able to accomodate things to our needs. The breakfasts are delicious - more than one can eat. Stawberry lemonade and cookies were laid out one afternoon if one wanted a light snack. The rooms are spotless and the views spectacular. You feel you are transported back a century with all the peace and quiet associated with it. We do a lot of traveling, but always come back to Wade's Point when we need to unwind. This is a place not to miss.

We enjoyed a wonderful retreat at this charming B&B. We loved the setting, the room, the Kayaks, the staff, and every part of our stay.

They even were able to come up with some cheese and crackers to go with our half finished bottle of wine after we checked out. This is true hospitality. This place is a real escape, and we hope to return.

This was my second stay at this inn. The first time was for an extended stay in one of the out buildings which are a little more modern. This stay was in the main house. The room was large and comfortable with two Queen beds,a private bath and porch. The inn is old so do not expect a modernization. It is beautiful and charming as it is. My favorite parts are the extensive grounds and the many porches. The innkeeper is a wonderful woman who has been there many years and is the perfect hostess. Breakfast is included and changes daily. The most delicious treat was the homemade yogurt and locally produced yogurt. it was hard to stop eating it.

My husband and I just spent 3 wonderful days at Wades Point. Our evenings were spent watching the sunset on the bay. The view at Wades point is spectacular. The owner, Betty was a wonderfu Inn keeper. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We liked it so much we are planning on going back this fall. If you are looking for peace and tranquility, this is the place.

My boyfriend and I wanted to go someplace not too far and not too expensive (he's based in New York, I'm in Philly). I wanted a town welcoming to foodies with water activities, and he was hoping to spend some time on a boat or two. We found it here!

We arrived at Wades Point Inn midweek before the 4th of July--and the silence was incredible. Walking into the breakfast area was like walking into a dream. It felt like a cruiseliner (the original owner was a shipbuilder) and the views were amazing.

Our room was perfect. It was on the second floor and had views of the bay. Not all of the rooms have ensuite bathrooms, but ours did. The property is old with 'country plumbing,' and I imagine that putting bathrooms in all of the rooms when it was converted to a b&b would have required enormous expense and would have damaged the integrity of the home. It was simple and small, which was all we needed. We spent most of our time outside, anyway.

The grounds are amazing. We were worried at first that being a 10-15 minute drive outside the town of St. Michael's might make us feel like we were missing out on the action, but after spending time on this retreat, we realized that everyone else was missing out. Only here could we use kayaks (at no charge; saw a bald eagle and kingfisher catch a crab), swim in the bay (using the b&b's floaters; water is deep enough to touch with your toes), and read all day in a hammock (there are two, and many more chairs), swaying in the bay breeze. And at night, we could head down to the dock to listen to the waves crashing up against the shore with a glass of wine (a refrigerator and wine glasses are available for guests' use). Now who can do that in town?

Breakfast was a treat every morning. Everything from granola with kefir to fresh fruit and muffins to a cheese pie, southwestern quiche, chicken salad, and biscuits with jam. Coffee and tea, as well, of course. Every morning I woke up wondering what delights I would enjoy downstairs. My only regret is that I didn't ask for their chicken salad recipe. (Chicken salad for breakfast wasn't something I'd done before, nor is it usually something worth noting, but theirs sure was tasty!)

And most of all, our hosts were delightful. Gracious and accommodating and just a pleasure to talk to. We are so grateful to them for our lovely stay.

For our last night in the US, this felt like the perfect location, a beautiful view of the Chesapeake and relaxation.

Beautiful view, certainly, it can't be faulted for that. But overall for the price we felt that it was overated.

The air conditioning was a noisy bolt on unit in the room, not a problem but it wasn't on when we arrived and at mid 30 degrees c outside it took some time to cool down. We were lucky that we had asked to pay less for the room - the initial room that was suggested didn't have an on-suite bathroom. And then at night, the mosquitoes. It was a blood bath, literally...... we couldn't kill enough of them once we got back into the room despite the nets.

Breakfast was the biggest dissapointment. Cold buffet of omelette, a meat posing as a sausage, stale croissant.

We'd being staying down the road paying the same for 2 nights as we did for one night here and really felt it was a let down.

Yes i remember you clearly, you seemed out of sorts and we did everything we could to try engage you and make sure you had a great stay. You chose the lowest priced room, hence the bath across the hall. We happily moved you. Those were not mosquitoes but mayflies which made a huge appearance this year and occupied much of our conversation and housekeeping efforts. Thank goodness they have passed!
That poser meat is actually the real deal , from a local family farm that pastures their animals. All our breakfast meats, milk, eggs and yogurt all come from 2 local family farms. I hope you've made it home safely and that whatever had you those days has passed. We would be happy to see you again, loved the accent!

Wades Point Inn is both relaxing and beautiful. We were amazed at the beautiful sunsets. Sitting bayside was totally relaxing. Betsy and her daughter are two sweethearts who stole our hearts. We talked to alot of locals as to their favorite eating places in St. Michaels and truly enjoyed every aspect of our experience. We will definitely be back again and again!
