“Lovely tranquil haven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2010

My old college friend of 45 years and I love this place for our girls' getaway! We went back for a second visit and were just as impressed as we were when we discovered this hidden gem a few years ago. The setting is a tiny community on the shoes of the Wicomico River, where there is a free 2-car ferry, at the end of a country road on the Eastern Shore of MD. We could feel our blood pressure going down the minute we arrived. The hotel has a long history, and it's been beautifully restored and decorated, and provides a comfortable getaway. There was wine and brownies for us when we arrived, and a computer available to check our email. The breakfast was beautifully served and was totally delicious, and the adjoining store has first-class art and craft items. The innkeeper, Cindy, is friendly and helpful. The only problem we had was a strange knocking noise in the wall, ceiling, and/or floor next to my bed, but my friend didn't hear a thing. (Hmmm, ghost?) We plan on returning as often as possible and know that others would enjoy themselves there too.

My husband & I were surprised with a wonderful gift at Chriistmas with a night away at the Whitehaven Hotel (and free babysitting!). We couldn't wait to take our getaway vacation! We live only several miles from this hotel but staying here, we felt like we were hundreds of miles away.
We were fortunate to stay during one of the Inn's Dinner & a Movie evening. We enjoyed a fabulously prepared dinner with the best salad dressing (I'm still trying to copy the recipe) and fish...it was an extraordinary dinner - and we are usually critical of menus. Since it was the middle of winter, we were the only guests for the evening. We enjoyed a move that was left for us and retired to our room - pristinely reconditioned and absolutely comfortable.
We awoke in the morning and were excited for what our breakfast awaited. The pears were to die for! We were sad to leave and will no doubt, be back and tell everyone else how wonderful this home away from home truly was for us!

IF you are looking for the perfect place to stretch your legs and relax, the Whitehaven Hotel is the place. Peace and quiet is one of the many things offered at the Whitehaven Hotel, along with attentive service, and a great breakfast. Pay close attention and you will also get to see Herons, Osprey, and Eagles residing close to the inn. We were thrilled, we got to see all of this from our own private porch, attached to the newly opened SAIL MAKERS LOFT, at top of the inn. The hotel also has a wonderful front porch complete with rocking chairs facing the river. Front porch sitting is encouraged at any time of the day, but is especially encouraged to view the wonderful sunsets. We have stayed in this area previously and have busily set about to do as much as we can in a short weekend. The Blackwater Refuge, Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art, Assateague Nat'l Seashore, the Salisbury Zoo, and the charming town of Berlin (where Runaway Bride was filmed), are but a few day trips within easy driving distance of the hotel. Other than to visit the 15 minutes away Bordeleau Vineyard for a wine tasting, we stayed home, at the inn, and enjoyed every minute of our peace and quiet.

  • Liked — Scenic views-peace and quiet-friendly innkeeper- comfortable rooms
  • Disliked — Loved everything

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Whitehaven Hotel is a beautifully restored, historical Bed & Breakfast nestled on the Wicomico River with two docks for visiting boaters and sits beside a 300 year old Ferry (said to be the oldest in the Continental United States). It is a scenic 20 minute ride to Salisbury, Princess Anne or 45 min. ride to the Maryland beaches, but "who needs beaches with our views" and Maryland crabs waiting to be opened and savored only a few minutes down the road. The Whitehaven Hotel provides kayaks and bikes for its guests, I might add that the kayaking is unique with many vistas and waters ways to investigate, while our property is a sanctuary for birds. On any given day you may see eagles, osprey, purple martins, heron, hawks, red winged black birds, humming birds and many more species. It's a gem of a find. Our motto "Enter as Guests and leave as Friends." ... more   less
