“Beautiful location”
Reviewed June 6, 2006

We recently stayed at the Inn for only one night. It truly is a beautiful, quiet and relaxing location that is quite special. The main house is beautiful and the property location is spectacular. We enjoyed relaxing/reading while sitting on the lawn lounge chairs. Nice location to enjoy a bottle of wine. We stayed in the newer building and, although very clean and pleasant, thought the room was nothing really special. The view from the balcony certainly made up for this. I agree that the breakfast was very basic. We arrived about 40 minutes prior to the end of breakfast and seemed to get the last of the scrambled eggs. The muffins were home made and really good. Fruit was good and that was about all of it. We have stayed at many B&B's in Cape May, NJ and this breakfast was so very basic as compared with the Cape May Inns. It was adequate for me because this is all I really want for breakfast but it was skimpy. We stayed our second night in St. Michael's at the Inn at Perry Cabin and it cost us $100 more per night there but is a world apart. I also loved the setting at the Perry Cabin. It was also quiet and tranquil and you could walk everywhere. It is really worth the extra money if you want something special. If you want a totally quiet setting you will love the Wade's Point Inn.

A childhood friend and I stayed at Wade's Point last October for R&R. We both thought it was absolutely perfect. Isolated, magnificent grounds, gorgeous main house, lovely accommodations. We both travel a lot, and we just couldn't think of a way this place could be improved. It was splendid.

I've recently returned from my annual visit to Wades Point Inn in St. Michaels, Maryland--one of my very favorite places. It's actually about 5 miles outside the town, on a point of land with a wraparound view of the Chesapeake Bay. St. Michaels is a great little spot, right on the water--nice restaurants and good shopping in little local stores, with an interesting history and a large marina.

Wades Point Inn is the kind of place to go when you want to totally relax. Thre are no phones in the rooms, and no TV. It's very quiet--you can sit and read a book and look at the water, go for a walk on their nature trail, or bring your fishing rod. There are lots of day trips to take--biking in the area is great, golf is nearby, and they're always happy to make suggestions about other activities in the area. At breakfast, we often find an interesting guest or two to chat with--some we've seen more than once over the years. In the early evening, we fix ourselves a glass of wine, and sit and watch the sun set over the water--then go to dinner in St. Michaels or Tighlman Island, which is down the road--or sometimes just get takeout and continue to enjoy the evening out on the porch.

It has a main house that's old--one of those wonderful places with columns and screened porches. We like the rooms there--some are large and others smaller but newer and with views of the water. There's also a newer building with nice rooms, each with a porch or balcony, and some with kitchenettes, I think. We've always been happy wherever we've had a room.

Wades Point is a place that I always leave feeling rested and completely at peace, wishing it were time to come back again--it's a beautiful, very special spot, and the owner and her staff always make us feel so welcome.

My wife and I stayed at the Wades Point Inn this past dreary rainy weekend (10/9) for the third time in about five years. We've always stayed in the Mildred Kemp Guest House rather than in the main house, so I can only comment from that perspective. As usual, the grounds are magnificent and the room was great. Our room had a balcony and overlooked the Chesapeake -- with that great view, it was all you could ask for -- except maybe a hair dryer and clock -- but knowing this, we brought our own!

I'm not sure what type of breakfast other reviewers were expecting, but we thoroughly enjoyed the home made muffins (and they are home made). Yeah, the egg thing wasn't great -- never was, but the other offerings more than made up for this shortfall.

The religious pamphlets are still there. Although it's unfortunate and in my opinion, poor judgment, they seem to be mostly confined to the main house sitting room.

I would definitely recommend this inn (and have) to anyone looking for a quiet, restful place to stay. We plan to go back again in the near future.

I agree with the other reviewers that the grounds of the Wades Point Inn are quite lovely. The room was average at best.
The breakfast could use help. Lame. It is buffet-style and consists of store-bought muffins, fruit, granola and a bit of bland egg-bake. We felt as if we were taking the last of whatever was being offered. Overall, the pickin's were quite slim and on the second of our two day stay there, we opted to have breakfast somewhere else.
Perhaps our stay would have been less disturbing, had it not been for the religious literature strategically placed about the common areas of the house. In short, this literature was highly offensive to me and my husband. One flyer, referred to by the hostess as "all facts" and "the truth", basically indicated that Christianity is the only way, and that our contury would be in a much better state if only everyone believed the "truth".
Please be advised: if you are not a Christian, you are not welcome at the Wades Point Inn.

If what you are looking for is a beautiful and peaceful seaside location, big attractive (not showy) rooms, and friendly management, all at a great price for what you're receiving, GO HERE. The place is simply GORGEOUS, especially the grounds and the view. My wife and I stayed here the weekend of March 26-27 (just past). Other waterside places in the St. Michael's area were either far more expensive (Inn at Perry Cabin), or were cheesy with much worse views/grounds. This place is classy, though not in the snooty/pampering mode. We WANTED to get away from phones/TV/rest-of-the-world, so if that's what you want this is perfect. My wife could have used an iron at one point, but that was tiny price to pay to stay here! We didn't find spiders or the like on our lovely porch, but we did see several deer, rabbits, hawks, and quiet farmland all around (while St. Michael's was only an 8-10 minute drive away). BTW, we encountered no proselytizing of any kind. There were a few books about American heritage in the library; while we're not especially religious, it wouldn't have bothered us to run into some religious materials too (as long as no one approached us verbally), but we didn't run into any of that.
If this is the type of relaxing experience you want, you're not going to do better on the Eastern shore, and we've been to a lot of them.

We've been to the Wades Point Inn several times and just returned from an anniversary vacation there. It's still a beautiful location with great views but we felt the place was maybe getting just a little bit tired. Weeds in the flower beds and walkways, spiderwebs on porches etc. Breakfasts ok, not as bad as some reviewers have indicated. Owners might want to think about adding TV's in rooms; St. Michaels rolls up the sidewalks pretty early so you really do fall out of touch with whats going on in the world. We'll probably try someplace else next time.
