Our experience mirrors all of the other complimentary reviews on this site including those highlighting the gracious host, Jim Grube, and the excellent breakfasts that are served.
While there are many excellent places nearby to visit, Woodlawn itself qualifies as a worthwhile destination with all of its 180 acres. The cottage rooms are very comfortable and almost all have their own decks with views of the water. There's a nice shade tree to sit under in between the back of the historic, 210 year old house and the bay that also affords a view of the Potomac River in the distance. To be even closer to the water one can walk out on (or place chairs on) the T-shaped dock that extends out over the water. We also noted that a canoe and an open topped kayak were available for used by the quests.
Finally, no stay would be complete without a visit to a nearby authentic, small, local restaurant called Courtney’s that is located right on the water about a mile or two away. The aged external appearance of Courtney’s is more than made up for by the fantastic quality of the daily caught fresh fish served within.
My wife and I definitely highly recommend a visit to Woodlawn.
