We have stayed here several times and always happy when we can return. My sister lives in the area and when her family is in town and we are too this is our comfort spot. My son and daughter were also here this trip and were hesitant to travel 15 minutes down the road from my

We spent a week at the River House, using it as home base for exploring the area--including Chincoteague, Assateague, Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, all of which are within easy driving distance. Our accommodations were great, with a well-supplied and large room. The

This was our first stay at a bed & breakfast. We were coming for The Chesapeake Celtic Festival in Furnacetown. We arrived Friday afternoon and were greeted like old friends. Our room was perfect. We were given lots of info about local restaurants within walking distance and

This property is worth a drive to Snow Hill, just to stay here and enjoy life. We were treated like family (in a good way), had a very comfortable room in this historic house, and wonderful made to order breakfasts. Our hosts were absolutely the best, and the next time we are

I am late getting to this, but I feel compelled to put in a rave review. This was our first trip to the Eastern Shore of Maryland. We were looking for someplace small and quiet (e.g., not Ocean City) where we could relax at night and paddle during the day. Snow Hill was the

Are you wheelchair accessible?
I don’t believe the main house is, but there are other houses on the property that may be. I’d contact them to find out. It’s a great place!

River Cottage, Yacht Club, and the Cypress House all have first floor rooms. All of the rooms in the main house are on the second floor.

How does an Inn differ from a hotel or motel.?
Besides seeming to denote a sense of scale and exclusivity, the word aligns the facility with a tradition of full-service care - you, your horse, your carriage, your servants were provided food and shelter. Inns often were the only public place a traveler could get food and shelter, often the only place a villager could enjoy food, drink, and a room all in one - the other public social center for the village other than the church or mosque. All those functions split apart into hotels, taverns, pubs, restaurants though now they are often back under one establishment. The word has a rural connotation, but think maybe it's from the Crusades - from the Ottoman word "han" - less comprehensive than a caravansary, more like the Japanese inn or ryokan.

"If there is a local event, book early to secure a room. Secret is out, best place to stay within an hour drive."
"Try the cottages?"
"Stayed in Cypress house which was very private. There are other cottages and also rooms in the house that we did not look at"
"West Room is a front of the house room with a great view and plenty of space."
"If you don't mind twin beds, the value for the River Room is excellent"
