Wades Point Inn on the Bay
Ranked #1 of 1 McDaniel B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 July 2014

My husband and I decided to go to the St. Michaels area on the spur of the moment. It was almost impossible to find a nice place to stay for one night (most have a 2 night minimum). We were lucky to get a room at the Wades Point Inn -- it was fabulous! We stayed in the Sunset Room (beautiful view of the bay/western sky). The room was very nice and spacious. Only downside was no shower (only a tub) but we knew that at the time of booking. The staff were so friendly and nice! We really wanted some alone time, so we weren't sure how much privacy we would have at a B&B. It was perfect! The property is so large (sits on the bay) that we never even noticed the other guests. We're kayakers, and were able to boat right from their docks. Breakfast was yummy, and they provided nice extras (guest kitchen, glasses/wine glasses, fresh cookies, etc.). We will definitely go back and would highly recommend it!!

Room Tip: Since this is a beautifully restored older home, your bathroom might be in the hall (versus inside y...

what an amazing place. Perfect location. Quite, tranquil, serene. Fabulous amenities (from the just baked cookies always at the ready to the kayaks and bicycles.)

This is not so much a B&B or country inn. It is closer to a 19th century resort.

Just eight minutes to "downtown" St. Michaels."

One of the best places we've ever stayed. As good a the best country inn in Provence.

Room Tip: The new building (which looks 19th century) has split system A/C which is nice (quieter) and if you...

If you are planning to go to St. Micheals and want to stay somewhere quiet and away from the crowds this is a good place. They have breakfast every morning and the food and coffee was excellent. The rooms and quiet and comfortable and you have a view of the bay.

A large group checked out the day we arrived, so we were probably 1 of maybe 4 or 5 occupied rooms during our mid-week stay. We barely saw anyone and it was incredibly quiet, but I found that to be perfect. We were looking for a low-key, stress-free place that we could sit by the water, under a large tree and read a book, while sipping a drink. We loved sitting in the breakfast room at night and playing Scrabble while having a drink and eating the fresh baked cookies - with kids and their activities we hardly ever have time at home to do that! The beauty of it is that St. Michaels is only 5 miles away, so driving in for a meal or to do some shopping doesn't feel like an inconvenience at all. This location provides the best of both worlds. The grounds are large and I wouldn't recommend it for younger children, but I'd take my own back (ages 12+16) in a heartbeat for a few days of relaxing here. Available activities are paddle boards, kayaks, bikes, croquet, bocce, horseshoes and fishing poles. There is a fire pit, hammocks, recliners and lots of large trees for shade. It would be a perfect place for a family reunion, girls weekend, special event (anniversary, etc).

We found the innkeepers to be very helpful. We started in the Duck Room, but I have lower back issues and the bed was too soft for me. After spending the entire 1st night awake and uncomfortable, our request to move across the hall to the Honey Room was accommodated immediately and with apologies (although it was in no way their fault!). Much firmer mattress - like heaven that 2nd night! Also, the air conditioner was newer so the room was much cooler. The private bathroom for the Honey Room is down the hall, which we were fine with, but they offered for us to continue using the Duck Room bathroom since they weren't very busy. It was like having the entire end of the floor to ourselves. You couldn't beat the views of the water from either room.

Don't be swayed by any reviews you see that mentioned the lack of t.v., refrigerators, etc... That isn't what it is about here and the Inn doesn't try to hide that fact. I didn't get to take a look at any rooms in the newer building, but that would probably be your best bet if you want a more modern facility, while still fitting in to the atmosphere here. But the real charm is in the main house and the summer wing - wood stairs worn down in the middle from years of use, creaking floor boards, bedroom doors that do not lock, having to watch your head on the stairs. If you appreciate that - it's all here! Oh, and Lucy the dog, she's a sweetheart. A little older and very used to people. I don't have a dog, so I was probably more excited to see her than she me, but we did enjoy sitting on the front steps together. That seems to be her favorite spot and she enjoys the head rubs. Add her in, and it felt like home.

My only recommendation would be to add chairs to the balcony at the end of the hall outside of the Duck & Honey Rooms. It would have been a nice place to sit, not that there was any shortage, it just seemed to be the only patio without seating.

Room Tip: I peeked in at every room I could - I don't know that there are any I wouldn't enjoy! Truly...

Enjoyed our stay, when outside we spent the majority of our time in the hammocks or lounge chairs enjoying the fantastic views and simply soaking up the charm of life on the waterfront. Breakfast was super and staff are friendly and helpful.

This historic property gives a feel of southern plantation crossed with colonial sensibility. The main house is gorgeous, with antiques and artifacts, but at the same time as comfortable as home. The newer buildings stay true to the character of the property and blend in nicely. Chesapeake Bay and its wildlife are all around, and the horses at the back of the property add to its quaint, bucolic air.
Breakfasts are delicious and imaginative, and the staff is friendly and helpful, while respecting the traveler's need for privacy and quietude. While there is no beach, swimming off the dock in the mornings is a great way to start the day!

Room Tip: All are great, and each has its own character. I stayed with a group so got to see many rooms, in th...

This is a really cool place with friendly operators. It's only a quick 5 minute drive from downtown St. Michael's and it is a beautiful drive at that. Awesome secluded, quiet, with an amazing panoramic view of the bay. There is even a fishing area and ladder to go swimming. Several buildings on the property offer tons of privacy and the main building has wonderful sitting areas. Best of all--cooked to order breakfast. We had crab omelets during our stay and my daughters had home-made waffles with local maple syrup. Lots of fun walks to engage yourself in nature and spending time together. Private pond is a dream for nature lovers. Grab a bottle of wine in town and hunker down on the lounge chairs for sunsets. Kids can go wild on the property or a couple could have an intimate time as well. We researched the alternatives in town and were SO HAPPY we ended up here. The high end resort in town is over twice as much and we felt there wasn't the value. This place is super cool. If you want to freak yourself out take a self guided tour of the local cemetery at night.

Room Tip: Pick something that faces the bay-almost all do though. We liked the newest building, end unit.
