Recently enjoyed a pleasant overnight stay at the historic Robert Morris Inn, Admiral Room 17 situated on the 3rd floor. As we would rather stay in older historical places we found the Robert Morris Inn to be delightful. The Inn is conveniently located along a peaceful and quiet street which ends at the historic Oxford Ferry. The room was sizable with a king bed and comfortably furnished. While there may be a few imperfections with the wall coverings and creaky wooden floors, its what you would hope to find in a building dating back to the early 1700's. Dinner and breakfast at the Inn's Tavern was wonderful, great staff, great food, outstanding and relaxing environment. Enjoyed a walk along the beach prior to the afternoon tea with selections of cookies and scones.
- 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
