The food was wonderful, and the best t I have ever had at a... More

if I was going to stay in havre de grace, I would have no problem staying at the vandiver inn. with that said, I always think of my friends who stay at ritz carltons and four seasons when I write reviews and let me say right away, the vandiver is no ritz carlton. but what it is, is a nice... More

It became quite evident that their Wedding Venue business is their first concern. I caution people to not book this so-called B&B if there is a wedding reception going on. I didn't know they had this business until after I booked. At any rate, the inn itself is lovely, but my husband and I never felt we were really a... More

Dear Jeanne, While we are happy to hear that the room was lovely, clean and comfortable, and you enjoyed our little town, we are of course disheartened to hear of your customer service experience. As a boutique lodging and event center, it is sometimes difficult to balance the needs of all the different kinds of guests, especially on weekends. Over... More

The combination of location (proximity to the waterfront), a very friendly, accomodating staff, and aesthetics make this bed and breakfast an absolute gem. My companion and I stayed one night in the Meigs room. We definitely plan to return.

Booking a corporate group for over night accommodations can be stressful but Holly and Kim at Vandiver made everything a breeze. My company takes a yearly trip out on the water in Havre de Grace and we stay at Vandiver after we come in off the boats- it is 100% amazing every single time. There was not a single "miss"... More

We stayed at this wonderful B&B on holiday weekend of the 4th. The hotel was booked solid, so we had to stay in different room for the two days that we were there. Having never heard of Havre de Grace we were not sure what to expect, but definitely wanted to stay at a B&B. I really enjoyed the layout... More

The Vandiver is a top notch venue to have your wedding at! The entire process is organized and planned by your on site coordinator which takes a lot of stress and worry of your shoulders. The final decisions are all yours but they walk you through everything perfectly. The food is truly amazing! The entire staff is polite and well... More

Excellent location and better service. The owner John made sure that his guests were taken care of, and his wife Sue made outstanding breakfast everyday. Don't skip the biscuits&gravy or the sweet potato pancakes. Happy hour starts at 5, wine/beer or cocktails on the porch - to talk and people watch. Their employee Kim made sure every room and guest... More

We decided to go to a location where we have never been before, and decided to stay in town at the Vandiver Inn. Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly, down to earth young man (his name escapes me). From that point forward our stay was comfortable, quiet, and relaxing, and our needs were attended to by a lovely... More

Just spent two lovely nights at the Vandiver Inn. Nick warmly greeted us and escorted us to our room. Breakfast was terrific both mornings, there was plenty to eat. The property is well maintained and the outdoor space is very inviting.
