“Exactly what you hope to find in a B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2008

All of the other reviews are correct, Joan runs an ideal getaway haven. Unlike many other local B&B's, she accepts 1-2 night reservations - even over Memorial Day week-end, when we went. We watched the sunset both nights from her lovely screen porch (see the picture looking back at the property from her dock). Joan is very friendly, engaging and a heck of a hostess. Both mornings she made delightful breakfasts and has complimentary soft drinks in the evenings. Honestly it felt like we were staying with an old friend rather than a B&B. We can't wait to go again.

Beautiful location on the waterfront looking west out at St. Michaels and the Chesapeake Bay. Idyllic! If only we had the time to take advantage of her kayak or bicycles.

Joan has thought of everything to make her guests comfortable. Pleasant room, clean bath, and access to the whole house including the lovely family room where she has a good selection of DVDs. She is a delightful person and an excellent B&B hostess. Breakfast was very nice, just what we wanted. We had a wonderful time in St. Michaels and hated to leave after 2 days.

It is not inexpensive for a B&B but considering the beauty of the area, Joan's warm hospitality and helpfulness, you get your money's worth.

Stayed one night and had a fantastic stay. Home is on the water, on a point, with wonderful views, screened-in porch and dock w/ bench. Joan, the owner is wonderful. We had a nice time chatting w/ her before dinner and at breakfast. Place is spotless. Had the room w/ the queen bed and adjoining bath. Would definitely return again.

  • Liked — Actual home of the owner. Spotless. Great views.
  • Disliked — Nothing.

We stayed at Point Breeze Bed and Breakfast in February, not exactly the ideal time to be visiting the shore, but everything was just beautiful. First of all, the Hostess, Joan, couldn’t have been nicer. She instantly made us feel at home, and what a beautiful home. The house is situated at the end of the street, surrounded on two sides by water, and facing St. Michaels Harbor, directly across from the Maritime Museum. Although it was cold, we took advantage of the bench at the end of the street and absorbed the peaceful view. The place is so quiet, except for the lovely sound of the geese that make their home in the cove, along with the swans, hawks, blue jays, and many other birds. When a hawk perched on a branch directly outside of the dining area’s picture window, Joan quickly produced two pair of binoculars, and a book of birds found in the area. I felt as comfortable as if I were visiting a member of my own family. Even after I locked her out of the house after persuading her outside for a picture, she calmly assured us that she can walk up the street to a neighbors house who had an extra key. I insisted on driving her up, and it was about a quarter of a mile up the street! I suppose that peacefulness makes it easy to shrug things off. That wouldn’t happen in the city.

Inside, the home is filled with antiques, oriental carpeting, a fireplace, much literature on the area, the Chesapeake, and even books that Joan put together with menus from all of the nearby restaurants and attractions. There is a screened porch with a wonderful view, and a piano that is not only available to the guest, but is encouraged to be played. We are also now shopping for a new mattress, as the comfortable bed in the room spoiled us. The breakfasts were also incredible, and, although she needed some coaxing to do so, we encouraged Joan to sit and eat with us, telling us about the history of St. Michaels, and how she came to live here. Point Breeze only has two rooms for rent, and would be ideal for two couples traveling together.

Joan gave us great information on what was open (a lot of businesses are closed for the winter), places to visit, places to eat, etc. She was just a wonderful hostess, and made our stay a memorable experience. I am reluctant to say this (as we would like to keep it to ourselves), but I highly recommend checking Point Breeze out. Maybe you will see us there, as we will be returning as often as possible.

We spent only 2 nights at Point Breeze and it was like staying with an old friend. This is a B&B in a private home in a beautiful residential neighborhood surrounded by water. It was so quiet in the middle of the night that I could pick out only one sound and that was a solitary cricket! Joan is so warm and makes you feel welcome immediately. She had the answers to any questions we had about the town and surrounding areas. There is a canoe on the property as well as a kayak and bikes, and a long dock to sit out on with your wake up coffee or a nice glass of wine to watch the sunset! Our only reget is that we ran out of time!

Stayed two nights at Point Breeze for a "girls" weekend in St. Michaels. It is on a beautiful spot with great views, a screened-in porch and a nice sloping yard down to the dock on the water. The twin beds were extremely comfortable. As another reviewer mentioned it is not in all the hubub of the shops and restaurants but less than 5 minutes away. Best of all was Joan, the hostess, who was so warm and inviting but also unobtrusive. We felt like we were staying with a good friend. Today, I received a thank you note from Joan which is a first for me from a B&B. I would highly recommend Point Breeze and my friend and I have already talked about going back again.

Point Breeze is a very comfortable family home on a quiet street with a beautiful view of St. Michaels harbor. The owner is very friendly and helpful in finding restaurants, shops, attractions and activities and will make the reservations you need to have a fantastic stay. The breakfasts are generous and delicious and the accomodations are clean, spacious and decorated to make you feel at home in an Eastern Shore retreat. A screened porch overlooking the harbor; a large, grassy property for outdoor games or lounging on a chaise in the sun; off-street parking; a private dock with electricity and water if you arrive by boat; air-conditioning; private baths; common rooms with TV, VCR, DVD player, games, puzzles and books; complimentary soft drinks, with an ice maker and wine cooler; and a fireplace for cool evenings make for everything you need for a perfect get-away - much better than the hype and the crowds of the more touristy locations. Point Breeze is a place you will want to visit year after year; this was our first visit but we will definately be back.
