The White Swan Tavern is a lovely bed and breakfast. Easy walking distance to restaurants, shops and the Chester River. The restoration of this 1700's building is very nice. We stayed in the Wilmer Room on the third floor and it was a good size. Very thrilling to stay in such a historic building. I would say that the bathroom... More

The entrance was not clearly marked. I had an elderly companion walking with a cane and it was ghastly hot. Doorways not ramped or easily accessible for someone with mobility problems. Also, the church across the street had bells going on hourly ALL NIGHT LONG. For the price we paid, the breakfast left a lot to be desired.....

This B & B is a classic. It is a fully restored 1700's tavern. The rooms are filled with period pieces as well as appropriate reproductions. The staff is friendly and attentive. One of the neat things was the display case showing some of the artifacts that were found during the restoration. Had a great stay.

Spent a lovely Sunday evening at the White Swan. So unassuming from the outside front, but the inside is outstanding! Be sure to look at the picture books that describe the remodel. The hostess and night staff were quite friendly and helpful. We look forward to returning again!

Three couples recently spent the weekend at White Swan Tavern in Chestertown, MD. We had a very nice stay and our hostess was friendly and helpful. One couple decided to change rooms, because they liked the new location better. Our hostess was very accommodating and made the change happily. But imagine our surprise when we received our bill and had... More

We rented The White Swan to host our family in Chestertown for a small (20pp) wedding. We hosted a larger party of approx 50 people for a pre-wedding event. The staff was warm and helpful, and the Inn itself perfect for our event. The trees of the back garden create a romantic private backdrop. The interior is steeped in history... More

Chestertown is a lovely town and we thought The White Swan a very characterful and indeed stylish place to stay- quite in keeping with the feel of the town.Built in 1730 and was pretty much wholly reconstructed some years ago but certainly has the feel of a genuinely old inn. It has its own little museum, which is unusual in... More

Very comfortable stay in this impeccably restored 18th century inn in the center of town. The room had two canopied beds, was quiet as a mouse even though it faced the front, and comfortably furnished with period reproductions. The staff was welcoming, parking (go around the block behind the inn) easy, and the public rooms were charming. If you want... More
