“Best B&B we know !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2005

We have been celebrating our wedding anniversary at the Dr. Dodson House with Janet and Gary for the past 10 years, and cannot imagine another place that would feel so special for such a special event. Their old historic house has been lovingly restored and beautifully decorated. The service is outstanding including wonderful early evening hors d’oeuvres and wine, morning room service of juice and coffee, and an extraordinary breakfast menu that can be ordered to suit your schedule. Best of all Janet and Gary are gracious hosts who truly enjoy visiting with their guests. We look forward each year to seeing our old friends in St. Michaels.

My husband and I have been staying at the Dr. Dodson House B&B since 1996. It is our most favorite B&B in the world. The hospitality, warmth, and genuine regard for us while we are guests is the very best. Innkeepers, Janet and Gary, are like family to us. Janet's culinary delights are exceptional. We always look forward to the made to order breakfasts with great anticipation. We will be returning to the Dr. Dodson House for our annual visit in December of 2005 for Christmas in St. Michaels. The Dr. Dodson House is the kind of nurturing experience that refreshes the body, soul, and spirit.

Previous reviewers have already raved about the great food and wonderful hospitality here which makes it difficult to be original. I agree that the friendliness of innkeepers Gary and Janet is what sets this B&B above others. Gary and Janet both made me feel very comfortable and I enjoyed our interesting conversations about their B&B experiences. As an example of their extra attention, Janet arranged a last-minute, same-day spa appointment for me at the Willis Salon/Spa in Easton (best massage ever!).

Spacious rooms, coffee brought to the room before going down to breakfast, guest pantry where I could fix myself a cup of tea, cocoa, or coffee in the evening or grab a bottled water on my way out in the morning, mini-fridge for dinner leftovers. And, okay, my own raves about the food - the mixed fruit cup was a deliciously fresh lead-in to the eggs benedict and the pesto pizza and the potstickers were favorites out of the evening hors d’oeuvres. I hope Janet does put together the Cooking Class Getaway that she mentioned as a possible future plan!

A wonderful bed & breakfast centrally located in St. Michael's, Maryland. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, and boat cruises. The rooms have been completely renovated and are warm, inviting, and beautifully decorated. The Victorian charm remains, but with all the modern amenities one could ask for. The hosts are very gracious and friendly. Hors d'oeuvres and wine are served at 6 in the parlor, and an absolutely delicious gourmet breakfast is served in the morning (you chose the time, from 7-10 am). Perfect for a romantic getaway.

My Husband and I have visited the St. Michaels/Easton area for over 10 years. Since we discovered Dr. Dodson House (the BEST B&B ever!) we have never/nor would we ever consider staying anywhere else. Janet and Gary, the wonderful Hosts, immediately make you feel at home. The accomodations, attention to detail, wonderful evening cocktails by a warm fire, delicious breakfasts and helpful sightseeing hints from the Hosts will ensure your stay is completely relaxing and wonderful. You will leave feeling pampered and refreshed (and like you have made new friends!). I'm only sorry that it seems our little "get away from it all" has been found out by too many others and we will have to "fight" for a reservation! So, if you are considering the St. Michaels area for a visit, include Dr. Dodson House as part of your agenda (did I tell you it is the BEST B&B ever?!).

Janet and Gary have thought of all the details and provide a quaint, comfortable and well appointed bed and breakfast. The food was delicious and I might try to replicate one of the hor'dourves served at 6pm - "pigs on a date" (they were yummy!!) It was with reluctance that we had to leave the comfort of the porch, and the beauty of the nearby docks. We highly recommend this B&B and hope to return ourselves in the future.
