After spending a week at the Miles River Guest House, we are easily reminded of Mark Twain’s exhortation to “sing like no one's listening, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching, and live like its heaven on earth.” A week at this wonderful guest house releases you of all inhibitions and stress, provides a refreshing change of pace and enables a respite quite unlike any other you have experienced.
Your adventure begins with the turn into Quailsar Road, a tree-lined drive winding you back through a bucolic horse farm until you arrive at the end of the road and turn into the property itself. The guest house is situated on a beautiful, private, waterfront property with expansive views of the Miles River. Innkeepers Will and Dorothy Howard—and their yellow lab, “Murphy”—welcome you with every grace and hospitality conceivable. At the same time, they respect your privacy and allow you to enjoy the serenity of the guest house and all of its amenities in complete tranquility if you so choose.
The Miles River Guest House is spacious and accommodating, and delights visitors with a fun collection of memorabilia, including a working jukebox. But the real treasure of staying here is simply enjoying the outdoors and sitting on the dock looking over the river. This piece of waterfront represents nature largely undisturbed since its creation and you would have to live through several lifetimes to experience sunsets like the ones you will see there.
My wife and I found the guest house to be a perfect location from which to embark upon day trips to various points along the eastern shore. And, we always looked forward to “returning home” back at the guest house later in the day. By far and away, one of the best vacations and stress-busters we have ever experienced. We can’t wait to get back.
