“Kent Manor Inn was gorgeous!”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

My husband and I spent our 31st anniversary at the Kent Manor Inn and were very pleased with the staff, the Inn and the delicious Sunday brunch. All in all, we were treated like a King and Queen on our special day. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, romantic get-away close to Washington, D.C. and Baltimore. I didn't want to leave!

Two "gorgeouses" in two reviews in a row? Treated like a King and Queen? Well, just call me Jack!

Happy Anniversary from everyone at Historic Kent Manor Inn (including Alexander)!

I was at Kent Manor Inn and it is gorgeous. The staff was friendly and welcomed us for a business meeting. The place is perfect for a wedding. I was told that weddings are their biggest draw. Check it out. The food was good, and the views special.

Room Tip: I think they are only open for meetings and weddings and maybe brunch on the weekends. It's very...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. We spent one day in Washington site seeing and the drive was fine. The staff are very helpful and attentive. I loved their breakfast! Delicious and accommodating to vegetarians! My husband is a breakfast lover and savored every morning here. The pier is lovely and the provided in room fire log is so sweet and easy. We both had a wonderful romantic time. And the chocolate chip cookies are addictive!

I attended a business retreat here, but also took the time to scope out the place because I'm always on the lookout for places to kidnap my wife, abandon the children and disappear to. The rooms are about the size you would expect from most B&Bs, but they have their own bathrooms, balconies and keurig coffee makers. The grounds are wide open spaces with waterfront access. I noticed they have a pool, but didn't get over to see it. Decently stocked bar on site with wine cellar. I loved how the dining room heat was a thermostatically controlled set of gas logs. I can't wait to come back in warmer weather.

Room Tip: The south side of the building faces the water and all the rooms have balconies.

The Manor House is warm and comfortable in wintertime but you are correct when you stated that warmer weather is the best time to enjoy the Inn's treasures. Our gardeners have been busy this winter preparing for Spring. It's the best time to enjoy sitting dockside, our kayaks, liesurely bike rides or our gardens. Looking forward to your return and thank you very much for the kind words.

The board decided to conduct our first meeting of the year at this hotel. With staff and board members combined, we totaled 21. We confirmed the use of all of the 24 guest rooms to have exclusive use of the Manor. This gave us privacy to have discussions outside of the meeting room. It felt like we were the owners of the estate for our three day stay.
Food service is terrific. The menus are varied and each meal was carefully prepared. We had vegetarians, vegans and folks with allergies in our group. The kitchen skillfully created delicious menus effortlessly.

So glad to hear your first board meeting of the year was successful as well as private. We look forward to treating you, again, as lords, ladys and gentry. Bring on the trumpeteers! Returns soon and check out the Emperer's new clothes! <blush> as well as our bicycles, kayaks and other outside activities!

My company held it's "2014 sales kickoff" meeting at the Inn mid January 2014. We were a bit concerned about the impending snow storm. Once we got to the Inn we found the long driveway and all side walks cleared of snow, the first floor fireplaces all aglow and hot tea and homemade cookies awaiting our arrival.
From the friendly greeting we received as we checked-in to the "please come back and stay with us again" upon departure; the staff and their service could not have been better. The food service is off the charts; kudos to the Chef!
Guest rooms are comfortable. The common areas and the guest rooms are decorated in such a way as to maintain the historic look and feel of the Manor.
We will be returning! Thank you Kent Manor Inn for providing the setting for a very successful meeting.

Room Tip: The Inn is on the small side with just 24 guest rooms. When booking a group, you have the opportuni...

If you need to get away from the city, even in the winter, the Kent Manor Inn is quiet, and you will feel well-taken-care-of. The meals were delicious, and restaurant service was friendly and efficient. Being a centuries-old building, you will climb stairs to your room if not on the first floor, you will walk on creaky floors, and hear your neighbors conversation and snoring. The rooms are very nicely furnished and there are a variety of configurations for every need. There are lots of things to do on the Eastern shore, from outlet shopping to visits to historic resort villages.

The inn is popular for destination weddings with 2 settings, but this February weekend was wedding-free!

Room Tip: If you have a difficult time with stairs, ask for a room on the first floor.

She is one Grand Old Building, with creaky 200 year-old floorboards and the low murmurings of conversations drifting throughout. It's part of her charm and we are happy you chose to share your experience. Weddings are a festive occasion at the Inn and more than one guest has commented on how lovely a venue it is. Chef Lackey and his culinary team delight our guests with breakfast each morning, Saturday ala carte lunches and his Sunday Brunch Buffett as well as catering to every bride and groom's wishes for a memorable experience.

As with the creaky floorboards and our festive events, the Inn may not be for suited for everyone but we are very glad it was perfect for you!! We hope to see you again.
