Top Maryland Bed and Breakfasts
This delightful manor in Cambridge’s historic district was once the former residence of a Cambridge sea captain, and today serves as a Maryland inn. From its charming red and white exterior to cozy rooms that blend that best of old and new, Cambridge House provides every comfort on your Maryland vacation.
Cambridge’s historic High Street beckons from beyond the parlor window, but we bet you’ll hardly notice – you’ll be too occupied with your Cambridge House suite’s exquisite interior to spare a moment’s glance at your surroundings, scenic as they may be. This Maryland inn boasts six spacious guestrooms in all, each appointed with its own unique blend of plush carpets or hardwood floors, delicate striped or floral wallpapers, and oil paintings or mirrors tucked into gilded frames. Wood-burning fireplaces framed with wingback chairs, private baths appointed with claw foot tubs – no detail was spared in the makings of this Maryland inn! Tasty picnics in Long Wharf Park. Scenic cruises aboard the Choptank Riverboat Company’s reproduction paddle wheelers. And murder mystery parties that feature a full tea service complete with scones, finger sandwiches and plenty of sleuthing. With packages for all of the above and much more, Cambridge House caters to every interest!

The Annapolis Inn
With its pale yellow exterior, white crown molding and elegant shuttered windows, it’s hard to imagine our No. 5 pick was constructed more than two centuries ago. Fittingly housed in the heart of Annapolis’ historic district, this Maryland townhouse-turned-inn has even had the honor of welcoming six signers of the Declaration of Independence.
This Maryland inn’s ornate spaces serve as remarkable examples of Greek revival style. Salons take the place of traditional living rooms, and are adorned to reflect the Annapolis Inn’s historic significance with exquisite crystal chandeliers, marble fireplaces and rosette moldings. Richly-colored tapestries and paintings adorn the parlor walls, with authentic Oriental rugs protecting the dark walnut and pine plank floors – a rare find in modern Annapolis homes. The inn’s crowning achievement, the Dr. James Murray Suite, opens to reveal a sitting room enclosed with panes of etched glass and an ornately-appointed private bath of imported Italian marble and porcelain sinks. The Annapolis Inn’s exquisite interiors open to reveal an equally stunning backyard composed of beautifully-maintained gardens, old growth shade trees and fan-tailed fish that flit below the lily pad-strewn surface of a Koi pond. The inn’s third floor sundeck offers sightseeing opportunities of its own, with sights like the State Capital and the Naval Academy Chapel’s dome clearly visible from its lofty heights.

Brampton Bed and Breakfast Inn
Housed inside a plantation house, circa 1860, and located just one mile outside of Chestertown, MD, our No. 1 pick has all the history, elegance and authentic touches that traditional bed and breakfast fans crave. For this reason alone, Brampton Bed and Breakfast Inn won our hearts – and our No. 1 spot.
Brampton Bed and Breakfast Inn lets you choose from guestroom or cottage accommodations, each with unique 19th-century charms. Beds draped with delicate floral linens and handcrafted lace canopies, oriental rugs placed at your feet and antiques scattered around the cozy hearth of your wood-burning fireplace – if Brampton’s interiors aren’t the essence of bed and breakfast, we don’t know what is! Of course, all this turn-of-the-century charm has been accented with the modern amenities that today’s travelers crave, including air conditioning, flat screen TVs and en-suite baths with whirlpool tubs. Mulberry Cottage, our personal favorite, is sure to inspire sweet romance, be it the rekindling of old flames or the striking of sparks for relatively young loves. Its front porch comes with your choice of seating; snuggle up on the wooden swing for two or hole up in a hammock as you admire the surrounding meadow from your lofty perch. A backyard patio, enclosed for added privacy, hides an outdoor shower and spacious soaking tub amidst its fragrant gardens.

The Parsonage Inn
St. Michaels, Maryland
With its brick exterior, intricate porch latticework and storybook steeple, our No. 2 pick is straight out of a Victorian painting. One day spent exploring the charming seaside town it hails from, however, and you’ll be thankful The Parsonage Inn is actually a Maryland accommodation, rather than a work of art.
Built by the founder of the St. Michaels Brick Company as a showpiece for his trade, the two-story Victorian this Maryland inn calls home is equally impressive in the modern day. Its historic bricks take on a pinkish hue come sunset; pull up a wicker chair on the inn’s front porch for spectacular views of St. Michaels in all its splendor. Rooms with brass beds, wood-burning fireplaces and private baths pair historic charms with modern comforts. And with the inn’s own fleet of Raleigh bikes at your disposal, attractions like Harbortowne’s golf course are only a short pedal away. Culinary enthusiasts will meet their match in The Parsonage Inn’s “Taste of St. Michaels” packages, which feature local favorites like 208 Talbot and the Key Lime Café. This quaint Maryland town also houses a craft brewery and winery within its borders, for those whose interests lie more with libations. And the inn’s own gourmet breakfast is nothing to scoff at, especially with tasty dishes like lemon ricotta soufflé gracing your plate.
210 N. Talbot St., St. Michaels, MD 21663
The Parsonage Inn is within walking distance of the harbor, and local favorites like the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum are just across the street.

Lake Pointe Inn
Our next Maryland bed and breakfast takes us away from the Eastern Shore and into the heart of mountain country. More lodge than typical Maryland inn, Lake Point Inn was inspired by the early Arts and Crafts traditions of the region, and is rife with architecture and furnishings pulled from the era.
Deep Creek Lake is a sight to behold in every season and the luxury inn poised on its banks makes for a truly serene Maryland escape in all four. Wake to a scrumptious breakfast each morning, pass the afternoon on neighboring slopes or hike McHenry’s mountainous terrain, and return just in time for Lake Pointe Inn’s afternoon hors d’oeuvres. A leisurely cruise aboard the inn’s pontoon boat, The Tight Squeeze, follows this tasty treat in warmer months, while optional massage treatments – including hot stone therapy and reflexology – are a welcome alternative come winter. This Maryland lodge even offers discounted lift passes for Wisp Ski Resort, conveniently located just across the road! The Buffalo Marsh Suite, with its half walls topped with warm wood columns, is a stunning example of the architectural styles of Frank Lloyd Wright. And its amenities – a separate seating area with gas fireplace, private bath with spa tub and steam shower, and windows that frame views of Marsh Hill Mountain – are the epitome of luxury accommodations.
Lake Point Inn guestrooms and suites are appointed with plush towels and robes, fine Italian linens, flat screen TVs, Bose CD players with MP3 compatibility and upscale bath amenities.
