My boyfriend and I did a romantic weekend getaway in August 2003. The Robert Morris was exactly what we were looking for to get away from the city. Robert Morris is situated on the water close to the ferry, with a view overlooking the river. Our room was decorated in the colonial style, and was comfortable, clean and elegant. The best part was dinner at the Inn-the best seafood we have experienced anywhere (and we've been around the world)! James Michener knew what he was talking about when he recommended the crab cakes. Also wonderful was use of the Sandaway Inn, a half block away on the water. We relaxed all afternoon in the adirondack chairs, sharing a bottle of wine and watching the boats go by. Take the ferry to Saint Michael's if you want to stroll a lovely small town with great restaurants and shops.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Once the home of Robert Morris who gained fame as "Financier of the Revolution". General and later President George Washington was a close friend and visited Robert Morris often. In more recent times author James Michener outlined his famous novel, Chesapeake here and fell in love with our renowned crab cakes. More history is located here. Now the Eastern Shore's most unique historic restaurant with rooms under celebrity Chef Proprietor, Mark Salter and Ian Fleming. Enter the Inn and step back 300 years: a pristine yet historic interior welcomes with timber beams, panelled walls and open fires in the cooler months. Through to Salter's Tavern featuring historic red brick walls and old slate floors, with magnificent fires in the cooler months and offering casual outside dining on our Terraces and Veranda during balmy warm summers. This is a truly historic Inn, cosy with a natural patina running through. Friendly, great cuisine and understated professional service. ... more less
