We initially booked a vacation for Outer banks, NC and after staying 1 night at some overpriced dump of a hotel, we decided to cancel the other two nights and go back to Ocean City, MD. Due to the Dew Tour at Ocean City, everything was also booked and/or overpriced and we frantically were looking for a place to stay on a tiny iPhone’s screen and slow connection only to accidentally stumble on a listing for River House Inn Bed & Breakfast. I decided to call them and ask for availability; on the phone Rick was very pleasant to talk to and informed me that the Yacht Club room overseeing the river front will be waiting my arrival.
Wow, what a surprise – we came for Ocean City, and ended up not even caring!! This little mini-resort is a hidden gem, and our wonderful hosts Rick and Dwayne made our vacation a truly memorable experience.
The room is impeccably clean – tastefully decorated and extremely cozy. Bed was super confortable and big (King size, and elevated – I loved it!) Jacuzzi was awesome! And Central A/C made a whole difference in the world – it was a really hot weekend with 100F temps, yet the room was cool and quiet and I could set just the right temperature without the usual A/C noises.
The pool is decent, with plenty of toys to occupy you there. Also free drinks in the fridge and the chill out area by the pool, and a Serious satellite radio playing whatever commercial-free tunes we want).
Breakfast was also really good, and the hosts would really cook anything you would ask them to and in any quantities. Like someone else said, if you go away hungry, it’s your own fault!
Last but not least, it’s a pet friendly hotel – wow! Owner’s dog Team is a sweetheart and I was entrained for an hour playing with tennis ball with her – very smart dog!
We already booked our next weekend getaway in August to come back here for 3 more nights! Yay!
