Located in the heart of historic southern Maryland, the Back Creek Inn offers a unique blend of old and modern conveniences. For over 125 years, this waterman's home has stood on the tree-lined banks of Back Creek. First a private residence, this home now celebrates its 28th year as a waterside Bed & Breakfast Retreat. The Back Creek, one of southern Maryland's scenic waterways along which the Inn is nestled, merges with the Patuxent River and the Chesapeake Bay. Sailing and motorized boating guests may dock at one of the two slips available at the Inn's dock.

Great location, kind staff and good breakfast! Right on the bay, this inn provides beautiful views and lots of great spots to sit in the garden and relax. The cottage gardens are well done, even in fall! We stayed in Peppermint, in the extension and loved being right there but separate from the other guests. Felt very private and quiet. Had a screened in porch with rocking chairs. Carol is fantastic and a great host.

This b and b is traditional—- very nice breakfasts, pleasant common areas, great staff. It is well organized with guest fridge, area maps, dining recommendations, indoor and outdoor breakfast seating, 24 hour tea, coffee and filtered ice water. The garden is beautiful and secluded. You would never know “downtown” Solomons is two blocks away. The end of the lot is waterfront and you can enjoy water views from the lawn, some rooms, and the sun porch. The rooms vary of course. Ours had a small bathroom but functional. There was a lot of seating and a decent sized tv. I think it was called Tansy. We particularly liked the location. We could walk to several restaurants and enjoyed boardwalk strolls in the evening. It’s also at the edge of a small residential neighborhood which is great for walking or jogging. Most of the houses are older and have been restored. Our only concern is that the internet did not work at all when we were there for two nights. The errors were generally either not available or too many people on the network. Oddly the staff didn’t really respond when we mentioned it. Not a major crisis but usually b and bs will mention it on the website if the location has chronic internet issues.

2nd visit. Took my mom this time and we both had a great time. Location is perfect and relaxing stay. Carol and her staff are great. They provide a nice breakfast to start your day. Love sitting out by the water and watching the boats go by. I took a great walk around the neighborhood and very safe area. Beautiful church in walking distance. Looking forward to next visit and seeing everyone again.

We were so pleased with every ounce of our experience at Back Creek Inn from the moment we walked in (and it's not just because of the delicious homemade cookies in our welcome basket!). The check in process was simple and perfect for shy people like us. The bedding was fully, freshly washed with ample pillows, the carpet was clearly new and fluffy, and the bed, while on the firmer side, was comfortable and far from the cheap bouncing mattress you encounter at many locations. The peppermint suite had a lovely porch for sitting and watching the boats on the dock at sunrise with a fresh cup of coffee made right in the room (No need to wait until breakfast for a fresh cup!) Breakfast each day in the quaint dining room was delicious, and the slice of breakfast loaf was such a welcomed, precious touch. The crowning jewel of this B&B is absolutely the innkeepers, though! Each of the ladies were so genuinely kind and pleasant to be around. They made us feel right at home from start to finish, and we honestly cannot wait to return!

Found this place online and picked it based on all the great reviews. They didn't disappoint. Cute Inn with character, located in a super quiet spot right on the water. We both enjoyed the peace and quiet sitting on the dock with an adult beverage watching the boats and birds. Walking distance to a variety of restaurant choices. Breakfast at the Inn prepared by this group of ladies was very good, as was the service. We will definitely come back for a longer stay to unwind from the daily grind.

My husband and I stayed one night at the b&b during a short trip to check out the island. It felt like a home away from home. Carol has thought of everything! We were greeted with easy-to-follow instructions for self-check-in and an adorable welcome basket in our room with a map of Solomon’s island, a couple of delicious freshly baked cookies, some snacks, and waters. We stayed in the Peppermint suite and loved the private entrance and comfortable king sized bed. The grounds of the inn are absolutely beautiful, both day and night. Waking up to Joey bringing french toast for us to enjoy on our private porch was delightful. We enjoyed socializing with the nearby guests from the comfort of our rocking chairs. The location is perfect! Waterfront, walking distance from everything, yet set back just enough to offer a quiet escape from the excitement a few blocks down. I can’t imagine how anyone wouldn’t enjoy this lovely gem!

My wife and I spent three nights with Carol and her staff at this delightful B&B right on the water in Solomons. The Rosemary Room was perfect for us. I was able to take some sunrise photos right from the front lawn over the water of Back Creek. And it's right in town, convenient to restaurants and other sights. Breakfasts were delicious.
