We just got back from a quick, last minute stay at Wades Point Inn on the Bay. It was just what the doctor ordered for a relaxing anniversary getaway without our 2 year old. Set your expectations accordingly, though. This place isn't a pretentious, 5 diamond, luxurious resort. It has no TVs, phones, pool, or spa. But yet - it's perfect. It's absolutely gorgeous, clean, quiet, and utterly enjoyable. Laying in a hammock on the point surrounded by water is a dream. If you can't unplug and relax here then you can't anywhere. My husband was ecstatic to catch 9 rockfish straight off the dock with only a bad of blood worms (compliments of Big Al's) and a rod. The living room is great. They have lots of books and board games available. My husband and I are fairly young (29 and 28). We wanted to enjoy some wine after dinner back at the hotel. If we stayed somewhere else, I guarantee you we would have had the bottle in our room while watching TV. Instead, we enjoyed it in their living room while playing mancala. Perfect. They also had free kayaks and a nature walk to enjoy. We weren't able to this trip but hope to next time.
The ladies working here are sweet, kind, and part of the charm. The dining room is beautiful and the breakfast room has the best view possible of the bay. I found the breakfast perfect: not too big but plentiful choices. There was a yummy sausage strata, French toast casserole, warm croissants and fresh muffins, oatmeal, and locally produced yogurt with berries and granola for parfaits.
We stayed in the duck room in the summer wing. The attached bathroom had been updated and had a wonderful shower head. The bedroom had two beautiful sets of windows looking over the bay. I felt like we were in a treehouse. It was beautiful. The bed was comfortable and the linens were too. They're getting ready to replace the wallpaper in the room as well. Something to note is that the house was built in the early 1800s. It is the opposite of soundproof, but we didn't have any problems.
We already want to go back, and we just left. Luckily it's a short drive from Annapolis!
