We spent a weekend at the White Swan....the staff, our room, afternoon tea...everything was great! They had afternoon tea from 3-5, hosted by a staff member who also teaches at Washington College; he was a delight. We enjoyed the display of artifacts found when the old tavern was restored. We enjoyed walking around the old colonial town of Chestertown, and having lunch on the water at the fish restaurant on the river. Breakfast was "continental", but hot scones and rolls added considerably. Our room and bath were very nice. One of the beds was a little on the firm side, but fine. Enjoyed the colonial furnishings. Air conditioning was fine, and we needed it! The guests' living room with TV was charming.
