“A Taste of Heaven on Earth”
Reviewed August 8, 2010

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.

My wife and I just returned from a wonderful long weekend at the Miles River Guest House. This bed and breakfast is an excellent place to escape from the hustle and bustle of normal life. It's situated in a serene location on the Miles River and offers amazing views of the water and water life. Sitting on the dock with a glass of wine at sunset is a must while jumping into the inviting pool to cool off in the day shouldn't be missed.

Our hosts, Will and Dorothy Howard, could not have been more friendly, accommodating or helpful. They were there when we needed them but also gave us lots of privacy. Their hospitality started even before we arrived, when Will asked if we had any special requests for breakfast and it continued over the weekend when he dropped off treats from a local fruit and vegetable stand, offered to make restaurant reservations, put us in touch with a massage therapist who came to the guest house, and even brought out his historic 1950 MG TD. We also loved Murphy, the family's yellow lab/golden retriever mix. His tail was always wagging to welcome us back to the house.

Enjoy your trip to the MRGH. Check out all the memorabilia that decorates the house. Enjoy the juke box, video game machine, telescope overlooking the river, kayak and much more. We had a great time and highly recommend this location and don't miss an opportunity to dine at some of the great restaurants along the water in nearby St. Michaels.

We stayed at the Miles River Guest House July/2010 and the ad said no pets however the owners dog who is in the attached house barked the entire time we were there. If you want privacy forget it!!
the owners are always there and watching your every move, we tried to have a romantic dinner by the so called private pool and the owners wife was by the pool pulling weeds while the husband (owner) was riding around our table with a loud lawn motor. We had made plans for dinner before we arrived but the owner changed all of our plans and it was not good. The house is old and is not well maintained the drapes are old and dirty and falling off of the rods.
We felt duped and ripped off by there ad, please be warned and do not waste your money on this place. It was a nightmare for us and we had not had a vacation in two years.

We deeply regret these guests not having a wonderful vacation. We share the house next door and believe that honoring their privacy is very important. Our yellow lab Murphy did bark from inside our house when they arrived but not after that. He is very friendly. We did not make or change any plans for these guests.

Oh my, I loved, simply loved, this place ... My partner and I were looking for a place to escape to and the Miles River Guest House simply was ideal ... the guest house itself is spacious and lovely, and the setting simply stunning - a beautiful pool right outside the door and a dock beyond that looks over a stunning stretch of river .. catching the sunset is a must - I'm a bit of a sunset junkie, and these were among the best I've ever seen ... we went into Easton for meals and found the town charming and full of good eating choices .. and as if all this were not enough, Will and Dorothy are the perfect hosts - there when you need them, invisible when you don't .. I rely heavily on Tripadvisor for recommendations (and the warnings!), so I do not write this review lightly - the Guesthouse is one of those few places I can honestly say is a simply can't go wrong ...

This was a wonderful bed and breakfast located right on the water with beautiful views and sunsets. The house was cozy and warm and had all the amenities we needed - especially fun was the old time jukebox with many great tunes. It got lots of play time!! The innkeepers were absolutely fabulous - catering to our every need and then some. They were there for suggestions of places to eat and sights to see - all of which were wonderful choices. Since we left two dogs of our own at home, it was great to have Murphy, the innkeeper's yellow lab, around to enjoy. We would highly recommend this bed and breakfast to those who want a peaceful place to relax and enjoy.

This is a really nice place. The living room has lots of fun things for kids, such as a juke box and computer games. The bedrooms are very comfortable and nicely furnished, and the two bathrooms are huge. There was a lovely view of the river with canoes and kayaks for taking out and a swing chair for just relaxing under the trees. The owners are very nice and helpful. This is terrific value for the money, and we were sorry to leave.

From time to time, we feel the need to 'get away' ... but not too far. Recently, we found the perfect place to go. The 'Miles River Guest House' is on a delightful creek of the river, between Easton and St. Michael's. Turning off on a tranquil road with a cluster of horse farms and some beautiful gardens, we arrived at what appeared on first sight to be a small house in park-like grounds ... but the house too is large when seen from the riverside. The guest house sits alongside the main house and flanks one side of the attractive swimming pool. It looks out onto the garden facing west and a breathtaking stretch of the Miles River.
The guest house is spacious, comfortable and well-furnished, with a fascinating collection of memorabilia from the family's life. From the large open-plan room on the ground floor with French windows on the pool and garden sides, some easy stairs lead to a superb bedroom suite that occupies the whole of the second floor. There is a small second bedroom on the ground floor, together with a second roomy bathroom.
The well-kept pool encourages you to sit or swim as an elegant bronze goose ('Lucy') doubles as a fountain and keeps you company with its 'water music.' There are lovely plantings all around, with chairs, umbrellas and a garden seat from which to enjoy a sweep of lawn down to the tree-lined river and a dreamy view of the setting sun.
Last but by no means least, we were sensitively and quietly cosseted by the warmth, charm, and indeed love of our host and hostess, Will and Dorothy Howard. We have already planned to return. Why should we travel - we are 'almost there.'
