An adorable tiny town on the banks of the Wicomico River, Whitehaven is home to this quaint historic property that was renovated and converted to a b&b. Its best feature is the outdoors. All the rooms are different, none is perfect, and the quietness of each is directly related to its location in the building. (Think antique, hardwood floors and a kitchen that gets started early in the morning.) Room rates include a yummy (usually sweet) breakfast, but daily room service was NOT provided during our stay. Service comes & goes as you never know when somebody will be on-site to help with any questions or concerns. The porches are lovely and beckon you to relax for a while -- although the furniture on them is uncomfortable. Rates are more typical of a full-service inn with every amenity. All that being said, we'll certainly visit again and we'd recommend it. Just go with lowered expectations, and you'll have a nice visit.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Whitehaven Hotel is a beautifully restored, historical Bed & Breakfast nestled on the Wicomico River with two docks for visiting boaters and sits beside a 300 year old Ferry (said to be the oldest in the Continental United States). It is a scenic 20 minute ride to Salisbury, Princess Anne or 45 min. ride to the Maryland beaches, but "who needs beaches with our views" and Maryland crabs waiting to be opened and savored only a few minutes down the road. The Whitehaven Hotel provides kayaks and bikes for its guests, I might add that the kayaking is unique with many vistas and waters ways to investigate, while our property is a sanctuary for birds. On any given day you may see eagles, osprey, purple martins, heron, hawks, red winged black birds, humming birds and many more species. It's a gem of a find. Our motto "Enter as Guests and leave as Friends." ... more less
