Dr. Dodson House is the perfect location for exploring St. Michaels. We are just steps from the harbor and one block away from the great shops and restaurants on Talbot Street. History buffs will appreciate the c.1799 brick home's original features, including doors, woodwork, fireplaces, and wavy glass. Beautifully appointed guest rooms, lovely gardens and a second-story porch to relax. Avoid the crowds at this small intimate inn.

We thoroughly enjoyed our well appointed room, our exquisite breakfasts, and the wonderful company of Janet and her other guests. The location afforded us the opportunity to walk anywhere (and everywhere) in town. We really enjoyed morning coffee and evening glasses of wine on the balcony. I liked the shower! My wife liked the bed! This quaint historic house was situated very near the Maritime Museum. Even a non-museum person such as myself was amazed several times at my findings. But I would be remiss if I didn't mention the breakfasts again. Our starter was a full dish of sliced fruit (with sherbet). The Eggs Benedict and individual quiches were our favorites. And the bananas and walnut waffle was chock full of flavor. And although our hostess didn't brag about the coffee, it was excellent!

My wife and I make this our go-to place every time we visit St. Michaels from DC. Janet, the owner, is personal and provides an inviting stay every trip. The rooms are meticulous and the breakfast is one of a kind. The marina is a few feet away and the main part of the downtown area is a one minute walk. The beautiful home makes coming back to this amazing Inn the perfect end to the evening as you sit around the in-room fireplace with a bottle of wine. Highly recommended.

We have visited the Dr Dodson House on many occasions and always stay there when we are in St. Michael's. Janet is the consummate hostess and personally attends to every detail. The Dodson room is always our choice and provides a relaxing and comfortable base to enjoy all that St. Michael's offers. Janet serves a fabulous breakfast which is a treat in itself. We highly recommend it.

My husband planned a surprise getaway for my birthday. We do not often get a chance to get away due to our busy schedules. A client of his told him about their wonderful experience at Dr. Dodson House Bed and Breakfast. Neither of us had ever been to St. Michaels before and we were excited for this new adventure. St. Michaels is a wonderful town that is warm and welcoming. I have to say unequivocally that one of the crown jewels of St. Michaels is Dr. Dodson House Bed and Breakfast. The house is beautiful and historic; within walking distance of fun shops, amazing restaurants and the harbor. Each room has it's own charm. Janet Shilling the proprietor could not have been more kind, hospitable, accommodating or pleasant. She really loves what she does and it is evident in her attention to detail regarding the home itself and her guests. Actually, we felt more like family than guests. We stayed in the Dodson Room, which was lovely, comfortable, quiet and immaculate. Then there was BREAKFAST! Sweet or savory selections were offered and made to perfection by Janet. Beautifully served in the cozy dining room. What a wonderful experience. Janet is a fabulous conversationalist and quite an inspiration. We had the best time that we have had in quite a long time and we would return in a second! Treat yourself and go!

We had a great weekend in St. Michaels, escaping the kids, eating crabs, sailing on the bay, and getting out for a run. Staying at Dr. Dodson's was the perfect place to aid in our getaway. Janet (the owner) was full of knowledge related to all things local. Her breakfasts were incredible and the Dodson King Room, where we stayed, was inviting and had plenty of space to relax in.
