Travelling with the family, we stayed in the Stone's Throw cottage, which is an immaculately kept little house on the expansive and beautiful property. It was nice to have a full kitchen to prepare meals, but the food at the main house was delicious! History abounds as the main house itself dates to the 1800's and was intimately involved in the war of 1812.
The hosts/owners, Jim and Tracy, were paragons of friendliness. Their warmth and good company made the stay extremely worthwhile. We also enjoyed the proximity to so many interesting sites. While the Inn is tucked away down a country lane, its is only minutes to both Chestertown and Rock Hall, both of which are quaint shoreside towns with many shops, boutiques, and interesting venues. There is a wonderful wildlife refuge nearby with plenty of herons, bald eagles, foxes, and trails to explore them all. And of course, we were able to get tons of steamed and seasoned crabs, caught that day, just 2 or 3 miles down the road.
Highly recommended to anyone passing through!
